Around the square you'll see beautiful buildings i.e. churches, restaurants and the Municipio, town hall I guess. Good food and ice cream from Eataly. This square was built by Mussolini for himself.

Yes the place is large and nice. It is also clear and clean, it is pleasant to walk and have a drink. But that is all. I have not felt something special like in other places in Italy.

This piazza is the centre of Forli. It is dominated by the beautiful monastery and has a statue of Saffi who was an important figure in the unification of Italy. A good place to sit outside a cafe and quaff an espresso.
