Overview
More
Collocata nel cuore della citta e la piazza su cui si affaccia imponente il trecentesco Palazzo del Podesta rinominato della Ragione, ora Teatro della Fortuna, la cui facciata e in stile romanico-gotico e il cui interno rifatto nell' 800 e in stile neoclassico. Un'arbitraria aggiunta ottocentesca e la classicheggiante merlatura. All'esterno domina la torre civica ricostruita dopo la guerra al posto dell'antico campanile. Attraverso il monumentale Arco Borgia-Cybo innalzato alla fine del sec. XV., dal Palazzo del Podesta si passa all'androne che conduce alla Corte Malatestiana. Sul lato occidentale della piazza c'e la Fontana della Fortuna dall'ampio bacino mistilineo a marmi colorati, interamente rinnovato nel 1697-99 dal veneziano Ludovico Torresini. La fontana e ornata con la statuetta bronzea della Dea Fortuna modellata e fusa nel 1593 dall'urbinate Donnino Ambrosi Poco lontano, sul lato meridionale della piazza, fa bella mostra di se la piccola ed elegante facciata protobarocca in cotto e pietra arenaria della Chiesa di S. Silvestro opera forse dell'architetto Filippo Terzi.

The fountain seems huge from the photos but is smaller in reality, When I was there the square was full of people in the evening and the atmosphere was very good

A beautiful square which has this pretty little statue of Fano, which I understand is Fortune. Quiet and a pleasure to behold!

Gorgeous spacious city square with a couple of nice buildings surrounding it. If you're searching for the tourist office? It's here. It took us a while to find it.

This is a square almost like in every Italian small cities. Church, City Hall and friendly people. If you visit the city you can't miss it. It is really very nice.

Spent a couple of hours at the square with a few friends at about 11pm had a few beers and just chilled. Was lovely and the staff in the bar we were in were really friendly.

Almost from this vantage point there is a little church dating back to the building of the city. During mid day the local close up shop for lunch but early evening the espresso is flowing and the wine delicious.
