  • Piazza Saffi is the Centre of Forlì and is one of the biggest squares in Italy. The square is closed to traffic and at night when it is illuminated is a show. In the middle of the square there is a statue of Aurelio Saffi. On the West side there is the Town Hall, a former palazzo degli Ordelaffi city gentlemen. On the East side stands the Abbey of San Mercuriale of Romanesque architecture. On the portal you can admire a magnificent bas-relief of 1230 describing, in two scenes, the sleep of the Magi and their adoration of the child Jesus; is the first crib engraved into history of world art. The Bell Tower is one of the highest in Italy and described as one of the wonders of the Kingdom of Italy. On the north side there are the post office building and in the corner with via delle Torri the State Office building. On the South side two precious Renaissance buildings: palazzo del Podestà and palazzo Albertini. In addition to the story there are shops, bars and restaurants including Eataly newly opened.

  • The Centre of Forlì is very broad, traffic-free piazza Saffi: despite the bus; with many shops, bars and restaurants. It's definitely worth seeing, especially in the evening when all the palaces are illuminated

  • The square is not huge but zero traffic makes it much more livable. At night it is lit up very well
