Largo Zecca

A strange square (of the ancient Zecca of the Republic), today dominated by the scenographic outlet of a very busy road tunnel

A widening that historically constituted an important junction of the Renaissance system of "foothills" streets that skirted the base of the slope from which the streets started for convents and sanctuaries outside the gate (from Fontane marose to Portello, from via Garibaldi to via Cairoli to via Balbi ). From here the climbs to the church of Carmine, but above all the recent works, which have facilitated communications by piercing the mountain: the Galleria Garibaldi and the funicular railway towards the Righi
