Piazza Vittorio Emanuele 2 - Fine Art Produzioni
Piazza Vittorio Emanuele is the most beautiful square of the city; it is the heart of life in Enna. Dedicated to the first king of a united Italy, it is known as Piazza San Francesco or “chianu San Franci” due to the presence of the church of St. Francis of Assisi. It is in this large square that several ancient buildings of great historical interest are located which provide the framework for this important location. Starting from Palazzo Chiaramonte, built by one of the most powerful families in Sicily, to which besides the Church of St. Francis were also built Ceres Hall, an auditorium, the Civic Gallery and the city library. Also notable is the Palazzo Greek-Militello, patrician residence built in the 1930s, decorated with stained glass and mosaics executed in Deco style. It is now used as a venue for exhibitions and cultural events. Another feature of the square is that it is not closed and restricted, but an open space that connects with the rest of the city, crossed by Via Roma, the main artery of the city of Enna.
