Towards the end of the century, the city market, traditionally held at the Campidoglio, was moved to Navona Square redefining it as a public space!
Piazza Navona began to take its present aspect in 1644, when Cardinal Giovanni Battista Pamphili, later Pope Innocent X, commissioned the construction of Palazzo Pamphili, family residence, that today hosts the Brasilian Embassy.
Italy is subdivided into 20 regions with separate governments. Five regions have a special autonomous status: Sicily, Sardinia, the Aosta Valley, Trentino-South Tyrol and Friuli-Venezia Giulia.
The region of Trentino-South Tyrol encompasses the most northern province of Italy, the autonomous South Tyrol/Alto Adige with the capital Bolzano.
The autonomous region of Sardinia is another famous holiday destination.
The second largest island in the Mediterranean covers an area of 24.090 km² with a population of 1,65 million. The coasts of Sardinia include some small offshore islands and are about 1850 km long.
Other major cities are Venice, known for its canals, Florence, with Renaissance masterpieces, and the fashion capital, Milan.
The Apennine Mountains traverse the entire peninsula.
The greatest part of the Alps is in Northern Italy with the highest peak at the French border (Monte Bianco/Mont Blanc, 4.810 m).
The country is characterised by three cultures: two third of the South Tyrolean people are German speaking, more than a third are Italian speaking and about 4% of the population (mostly in the Dolomite Mountains) speak Ladin.
As South Tyrol is poor in natural resources, tourism is an important economic factor.
