Quattro Canti

Quattro Canti is the name given to unique squares created by the perpendicular intersection of two streets.
he buildings that overlook them have cut and bevelled corners.
The first to be built were those in Palermo: in 1567, the road from the Palazzo Reale to the sea, Via Toledo (now Corso Vittorio Emanuele), was redesigned.
In 1597, a new perpendicular street, Via Maqueda, was added, forming the Quattro Canti square.
