The noble square

The square rises in an urban context initially placed outside the walls and incorporated over time. Given the proximity to one of the city gates and the proximity to the Palazzo Ducale and Campetto, the area was strategic for tax collectors, a profession exercised by the Doria family. Setting up its headquarters in the area meant, therefore, having total control over the traffic of goods that moved to and from the town. Morphologically, it is located at the foot of the slope on which today stands Piazza De Ferrari.

In the aerial photo (Google Maps) the city spaces are highlighted. In red Piazza San Giorgio; in yellow, at the bottom, Piazza Matteotti and the area of the Ducal, at the top of Campetto, known for the market.
