The square is a normal one, perhaps above average considering the history but in my opinion " Prato della valle" is better. The thing that makes this place one of the most beautiful location I have ever seen is the, functioning, astronomic clock tower that watches over the square. The tower is a perfect reconstruction of the original that perished under the fire. The investigative eye will find that among the signs of the Zodiac the sign of Libra is missing. This is due to the fact that the astronomy of the clock is based on the pre-Roman zodiac system where the constellations of Scorpio and Libra were merged into one.
