Piazza Venezia
The "Times Square" of Rome and the geographical center of the eternal city. Begun in 1455 as an enlargement of the residence of Pietro Barbo, the pleasure-loving Venetian cardinal-soon to become Pope Paul II-the palace would emerge as the first great work of the Renaissance in Rome. As pope, Paul II ordered the pre-Lenten carnival, Europe’s most famous, to be relocated here so he could watch from his balcony, the same perch from which Mussolini addressed his followers five centuries later.
