Photographer's Note

Thinking of those overlooking the sea, Piazza Unita d'Italia can be considered one of the largest and most beautiful squares in the world. Designed by architect G. Bruni in 1879 and renovated in 1999 by architect B. Huet, it is framed by imposing buildings. With one's back to the sea, from left to right one can see the Palazzo del Governo (Government Palace-architect E. Hartmann, 1905), the seat of the Prefecture, Palazzo Stratti (architect A. Buttazzoni, 1839), Palazzo Modello (architect G. Bruni, 1873), Palazzo del Municipio (Town Hall-architect G. Bruni 1875), Palazzo Pitteri, the only one that dates back to the 18th century (architect U. Moro, 1790), Ex Palazzo Vanoli (architects E. Geiringer and G. Righetto, 1873), Palazzo del Lloy Triestino, now the seat of the Region (architect H. Von Ferstel, 1883). The square is enriched with two other eighteen -century elements: the baroque Fountain of the Four Continents by architect Mazzoleni (1751) and the column with the statue of the Emperor Charles VI (Fusconi, 1728).
