Piazza del Mercato - Spoleto

Already square of the forum, trade and commerce center in Roman times, the crossroads of Cardo Maximo (Via dei Duchi / Via Arco di Druso) and Decumano (Via del Municipio / Via del Mercato) has for centuries been the heart of the city, Main square and outdoor market.
In Roman times they faced the square, much wider than today, the Capitolium, the Basilica, located on the side where today is the monumental fountain, opposite the Arc de Druso and Germanic, and a temple, of which remains immense remains.
In the Middle Ages it was almost entirely occupied by houses, but the municipality of Spoleto with the statutes of 1196 decided to return “recta, expedita et ampliata”
Are visible on the facades of the palaces, frescoes and graffiti.
