About this spot
Just south of the Piazza Maggiore is the Piazza Cavour—a public green space created in honor of Camillo Benso, Count of Cavour. Cavour was an Italian politician who was integral in the movement towards consolidating the different states of the Italian Peninsula. After the country was united, he took office as the first Prime Minister of Italy.

The garden was created after the unification in 1860. In the center of the piazza is the bust of Cavour, sculpted by Carlo Monari.

Sitting on a park bench in the piazza is the statue of Lucio Dalla with his inseparable clarinet at his side. Dalla, a well-known singer and songwriter from Bologna, wrote the “Piazza Grande” a song about the Piazza Cavour. The statue is turned exactly towards his birthplace at Street No. 2.
