People do not talk about Piasenza as an interesting Italian city and I have to say that it is surprising because it is a beautiful city and Piazza Cavalli is the cherry on the cake. Great atmosphere, fantastic buildings and lovely cafe.

In the middle of the city there is this square, surrounded by famous and very interesting buildings, like the Palazzo Gotico, Palazzo dei Mercanti. he two riding statues of the Farnese's are beautiful on the square.

The heart of the city, historical, beautiful, great shopping nearby, distinguished by those impressive sculptures of the Farnese! I tried to appreciate its quieter moments in the early evening just by sitting on the steps of the palace and watching quieter, traditional life go by...More

One of the attraction of the city is a large square where the bronze equestrian sculptures are the principal attraction. The sculptures are well composed and the horses are well realised with a typical pass movement.
