Hours of operation
The gradeur and sheer beauty of Repubblica Square is still breathtaking even while being surrounded by city as magnificent as Rome. Formerly known as Piazza Esedra, it is famous for the four beautiful nude nymphs at the center of the Fountain of the Naiads. After the unification of Italy in 1871, Rome was designated as the new capital. In order to keep up with other more modern european capitals, Rome underwent a series of renovations and improvements, one of which was to build and dedicate a square to the new republic. Construction was finished in 1901 and today plays host to general strikes and other political demonstrations. The Church Our Lady of the Angels is on the far side of the square opposite the entrance onto Via Nazionale.
