The early C17th ambition behind it is most impressive. As with many town plans in Sicily, I'm thinking in particular of Grammichele and Ortigia, the town planning is most impressive.
Piazza Vigliena, is defined by its eight borders, the four streets and the baroque quattro canti. The four seasons are here in stone, along with kings, patronesses, fountains and statues, all in curved facades. It's neatly balanced.
It's an inspirational spot - it good be a stage set instead of a busy city junction - it certainly inspired me!
Go and see for yourself.
It might inspire you too.
Oh how I do love Sicily so.
