Piazza IV Novembre (Perugia)
The Piazza IV Novembre is the main square of the city of Perugia in the central Italian region of Umbria. The Piazza takes its name from the date on which Austria-Hungary surrendered to Italy to mark the end of the First World War for the opposing forces.
Dating back to a much earlier period of history, the square itself is surrounded by a number of landmark medieval buildings.
The 15th century Perugia Cathedral covers the northern area of the square at a slightly unusual angle meaning that its main facade is tucked away along a narrow walkway. At the centre of the Piazza is a 13th century monumental fountain: the Fontana Maggiore while just south of that is one end of the Palazzo dei Priori which now houses the National Gallery of Umbria.
