Piazza del Ferrarese information
Piazza del Ferrarese, named after the Ferrara merchant Stefano Fabri who lived here in the 17th century, provides an elegant entrance to the old town. On your left are the rounded arches of Sala Murat which holds minor contemporary art exhibitions, and on your right is the old indoor fish market. The piazza is lined with bars and cafés, an old section of roman road roped off in the middle. To the north it merges imperceptibly into another set-piece piazza, Piazza Mercantile.
