Description

Aptly titled, "the cradle of the Renaissance," Florence boasts several of the world's prominent Renaissance structures, and the city's piazzas, or squares, are a stupendous personification of the Renaissance spirit. One such square is the Piazza della Santissima Annunziata, named after the Basilica della Santissima Annunziata, which lies to the northeast of the square. To the piazza's southeastern side lies the facade of the Spedale degli Innocenti, designed by Brunelleschi. Also, the piazza is home to a statue of Ferdinando I de' Medici, designed by Pietro Tacca, who also designed the two bronze fountains located here. A visit to this square is worth your while, not just for the architectural sights, but also for the various cultural events that are arranged here.
