Piazza della Repubblica

View of Piazza della Repubblica View of Piazza della Repubblica Piazza della Repubblica is the biggest Piazza in Livorno, situated at the far end of Via Grande. It is a major traffic hub, like a huge roundabout, with Via Garibaldi, Via de Larderel, Via Grande, Via degli Avvalorati and other minor roads all leading off it in different directions. At one end lies the Fortezza Nuova, while the middle of the Piazza is an ample paved area which actually forms a huge vault over the underlying Fosso Reale ('royal canal'), hence the former name of the square, Il Voltone. If you take one of the boat trips along Livorno's canals, you will pass right under Piazza della Repubblica.
