piazza dei martiri  


The square, that constitutes the centre of the most smart zone in Naples in which you will find the most beautiful shops that propose the products with the most prestigious signatures of the world can be esteemed as the monument-symbol of the Napolitain Baroque. The area existed in the Aragonese period, but it was deeply modified during the seventeenth century with the construction of the monumental Palazzi Partanna and Nunziante. Alvino realised also the monument to the martyrdom in 1866 characterized by a high column that rises to the centre of a raised flowerbed and has at the sides four lions that, in different attitudes, symbolize the motions and the victims of 1799, of 1820, of 1848 and the Unity obtained after the 1860.
