Probably the two bronze equestrian monuments are enough to attract art lovers from distant places. Imposing and baroque they are truly awesome. Palazzo Gotico is also charming. And a meridian cuts the square in two diagonally.

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.

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.
