Piazzale Michelangelo is a square which gives panoramic views over Florence, Italy. The square was designed by architect Giuseppe Poggi and was built in 1869 on top of a hill to the south of the city centre in a district called Oltrarno. The square was dedicated to the Renaissance sculptor Michelangelo and many bronze replicas of his work stand on the square. The square is best known though for the views it provides of the city of Florence.
