Piazza Galvani e abside di San Petronio is situated in the heart of the Italian city of Bologna. It is a beautiful example of the Italian Baroque style which can be seen in the 17th century frescoes that adorn the facade of the San Petronio Basilica. At the center of the square is a huge statue of Girolamo Cardano, a famous Italian philosopher, physician, and astrologer. This grand monument was built in the late 1800s by a local sculptor, Giambattista Mainella. Surrounding the Piazza you will find a number of historical buildings like the Palazzo Comunale, the Palazzo del Podesta, and even a few cafes and wine bars. It is a popular meeting place for locals, who enjoy sitting in the shade of the porticoes and watching the evening lights come up.
