Bologne, Italy - Piazza Galileo

The square in front of the Basilica of San Domenico is paved with pebbles, as it was in medieval times. It was originally the cemetery. The column closest to the church facade is a brickwork column with the bronze statue of St. Dominic (1627) and on the other side of the square (facing Via Giuseppe Garibaldi) is a column in marble, bricks and copper of the Madonna of the Rosary, after a design by Guido Reni (1632), commemorating the end of the plague in the city. In the center stands the tomb of Rolandino de’ Passeggeri by Giovanni (1305) and behind it on the left, adjoining a house, the smaller tomb of Egidio Foscarari (1289), enriched with a re-used Byzantine marble arch with reliefs from the 9th century.
