Della Nave Square

Wide, scenographic, harmonious, Piazza della Nave (also called Piazza Vittorio Emanuele 2nd) is the heart of Ronciglione’s social life, the square of the typical carnival dance and of a cup of coffee. On the northern side we can see Palazzo Bramini, a building that has suffered the French fire in 1799. The square has been built by filling a valley where two moats ended in front of the door of the ancient castle, during the era of the Farnese Dukes in the 16th century.

The age-old trees of Villa Vespigiani decorate the back part of the square.
