The square dedicated to Benedetto Cairoli is dominated by the façade of the church of S. Carlo ai Catinari.
It was built on a design by Édouard Andrè in 1890 and donated by Baron Huffer to the City of Rome.
The arrangement, created by the French architect following the 19th century syststem to redesign the urban plannining of the city gutting the surfaces of the roads, made one square from two squares, getting together squares Branca and S. Carlo ai Catinari in a single square, tearing down the buildings included among them.
The square, shaded by a large plane tree, was restored in 1999, and is adorned with a bronze statue and a fountain, whose basin comes from the Forum.
The garden fence was made with a gate that incorporates the design of the original one, removed in 1937 to supply iron to the armament industry.
It is pleasant to sit on one of those benches and see the people passing by.
It is a stone's throw from the 87 bus stop in Piazza Argentina near the Theater of Rome and very close to some excellent coffee shops.
As for aesthetic beauty, we would like to say that it is better not to expect anything extraordinary.

Piazza Benedetto Cairoli is a small postage-stamp sized city park.
Whilst no-one is going to go out of their way to find the park, if you happen to stumble across it, it’s a nice, shady spot to sit and rest your feet.
We stopped for 5 -10 minutes to sit on one of the park benches to get our bearings, check our map and re-fill our water bottles.
The park has two simple features. Near the entrance is a bronze statue of the 19th century patriot and politician, Federico Seismit-Doda.
At the far end is a simple fountain.
An old-fashioned style metal fence encloses the park. Strangely, you can only enter/exit through just the one gate so whilst you can easily walk a short loop around the park, you cannot walk through it.
Designed in 1890 by the French architect, Édouard Andrè, the park is located near Largo Argentina and the Jewish Ghetto area. The closest bridge is Ponte Garibaldi.
I can see that some past reviews describe the park as being quite scruffy and neglected but I think it must have been given some TLC in recent years. There are several large, shady, healthy looking trees and the flower beds at the entrance were planted out with white roses and purple agapanthus.

Major cities Rome will never have enough green space, making Piazza Benedetto Cairoli useful for those that live in area. Unlike most public squares around Rome which are hard surface, this is a small park with grass and a few trees and park benches. There are a couple monuments on the square as well, including a statue of 19th-century politician Federico Seismit-Doda as well as a late 19th-century fountain featuring a repurposed Ancient Roman basin.

This park was neglected for some time but has recently been restored, and it is now a lovely small park in the middle of the busy city. Great for taking a rest, while listening to the fountain. The garden was originally designed by Edouard André in 1890. The fountain was made using an ancient Roman basin.

This is a lovely square, that is easy to walk past, however, a great place for a rest plenty of shaded, seating, within the square is monumento a Seismit Doda and Fontana Cairoli., which adds to the beauty of the square.

In 1886, the German Baron Wilhelm Hüffer (1821-1895) proposed to the Municipality to create, at his expense, a garden in the large space created by the demolitions of Piazza de' Branca. In 1888, the municipality of Rome accepted Hüffer's proposal. The design of the garden of the new square, named after the politician Benedetto Cairoli, was created by the French landscape architect Edouard André. The bronze statue inside the garden depicts Federico Seismit Doda, Minister of Finance in the Cairoli and Crispi governments. The fountain in the garden has the shape of a cup and is made of granite.

This square owes its name to Benedetto Cairoli (1825-1889), a former Italian prime minister.
I highlight the green space where there is a fountain and a small monument in honor of Federico Seismit-Doda (1825-1893).
It has medium-sized trees, lots of shade, which is great on hot days, and several garden benches.
There are shops, especially on Via Arenula which runs alongside, a street with a lot of road traffic, but which doesn't bother those who stop at Benedetto Cairoli Square to rest a bit.
