Piazza Santa Trinita

Piazza Santa Trinita

The Piazza Santa Trinita is a triangular square in Florence, Italy, named after the church of Santa Trinita on the west side of the square. Near the middle of the square is an ancient Roman column known as the Column of Justice due to the sculpture of "Justice" on the top. Several Renaissance palazzos surround the square, as well as the medieval Palazzo Spini-Ferroni, now the headquarters, flagship store, and museum of famous Italian shoe designer Salvatore Ferragamo.
