Campidoglio, Roma, Italy, 2001

Campidoglio is the most magnificent square in the world, according to our evaluation method. Square is designed by Michelangelo Buonaroti, the famous renaissance architect, sculptor and painter. This space is located on the Palatine Hill, one of the seven famous Roman hills. With its superb human proportions and unbeatable level of comfort it is the most fabulous place in Rome, especially near the end of the day with an unbelievable sunset and a view of the whole city.

It is a perfect example of what a city square should be.

Even with all the contemporary problems that cities all over the world, including Rome of course, are facing preservation and usage of Campidoglio is exemplary.
