Piazza Cavour is the main square in the city of Vercelli. It has a cobblestone pavement, enriched by long, stone-lined lines, surrounded by medieval porticoes built in successive ages and dominated by the medieval and characteristic Tower of the Angel, which was part of a noble house belonging to the Tizzoni family. Piazza Cavour also remembers the Brussels square in Belgium. It is the ancient Roman forum, characterized by acute arches dating back to the 14th century called "brentatori" with wood-beamed ceilings while on the porches north of the square you can notice the terracotta decorations that adorn the newly restored arches (in 2013) . On the west side of the portico there is a bas-relief depicting Vibio Crispo, a veracle orator from the first century AD. Always at the top of the square, a plaque recalls the work of the painter Il Sodoma, born in Vercelli. Although there are no historical buildings of power on the square, a short distance away (in Palazzo Vecchio square) is Broletto, the seat of the medieval town hall. The current headquarters of the municipal offices are instead located in the nearby Town Hall square. In the center of the square dominates the monument to Camillo Benso, Conte di Cavour. At the base of the statue are two allegorical female figures representing Trade and Agriculture, the two ministries that Cavour had directed in the Kingdom of Sardinia. Prior to being named the statista, the square was known as Piazza Maggiore. In the square there is a usual city market on Tuesdays and Fridays. Among the various events is to remember the antique market every first Sunday of the month.
