Located on the edges of the historic centre, at the beginning of the monumental Via Garibaldi , this square owes its name to the rather fierce fountain which collects the waters from the banks of the Luccoli and directs them down to the sea. It was designed to host equestrian tournaments, as dictated by a historic commission by the Republic, but is today a road with several fascinating buildings facing onto it, including the black and white fronted Palazzo Spinola "dei Marmi" , the Palazzo Negrone with its severe eighteenth century façade and the Palazzo Pallavicino, with its luminous, frescoed facade—this latter has been recently restored and is still now inhabited by the prince several days a month.
