  • Sort on the area of the Roman Forum, piazza has undergone many changes before reaching its present form. It was the site of communal power: civil and religious ceremonies were held here, including the Palio di San Floriano. In the Middle stands the fountain-Obelisk, 1844 opera designed for the Republic square by architects crickets and Friends, moved here in 1949. On the square facing the Cathedral of San Settimio, Palazzo Ripanti again (Diocesan Museum) and the former Church of San Floriano, the oldest of the town although remodeled several times over time, which now houses the Theatre Studio Thomas Malloy. Definitely the best known feature of the square is that right here, on 26 December 1194, was born Frederick II, nephew of Barbarossa and future Holy Roman Emperor. His mother, Constance of Sicily, was in labor while en route to join her husband Henry VI in Sicily. It seems that his advanced age had aroused doubts and innuendos of a fake pregnancy, and that was an imperial tent in the middle of the square, where the Empress gave birth to publicly in order to dispel any doubt about the birth of the heir to the throne. The event is commemorated by a plaque on the floor of the square which is written in multiple languages on the façade of the Palazzo Ripanti. The square is beautiful and elegant, surely a fundamental historical stage of a nice walk around the city.
