Piazza del Plebiscito

Square Naples, Italy

The largest and most important square in Naples Piazza del Plebiscito

Taking its name from the 1860/1 plebiscite that joined the Kingdom of the Two Sicilies to the Italian State, Piazza del Plebiscito is home to one of four Bourbon Royal Residences – Palazzo Reale, Naples own version of the Pantheon – the Basillica of San Francesco di Paola and two palazzos that are mirror images if not in age, in facade.

Palazzo Salerno on the south side of the piazza and to the north, Palazzo della Prefettura, home to Naples famed Caffe Gambrinus. In the center sit two bronze equestrian statues, Charles III of Spain and Ferdinand I of the Two Sicilies. A 25,000 square meter open air arena set between the city and the sea, Piazza del Plebiscito is the canvas for large scale contemporary art installations, the backdrop for the greatest New Years Eve fireworks show on earth and the stage for some of the greatest names in music – Massimo Ranieri, Sir Elton John, Andrea Bocelli, Sting, and Pino Danielle just to name a few.
