Republic Square was founded on the site of the ancient Roman forum
In the days of ancient Rome, the temple of Zeus and Juno was located here in the northern part of the square ... Nowadays, it houses the famous Pendini Hotel, created by Signora Pendini in 1879.
Until 1861, Republic Square was a market place. After Florence was proclaimed the capital of the new kingdom, it was decided to equip the historic city center. The old buildings were replaced with new ones in the French style. At the same time, cafes Jube Rosse, Gigli and Pashkovsky opened, which were gathering places for intellectuals and artists.
