Sant’ Agostino square
Irregular in shape, with slightly sloping ground, wide and sunny; unlike that of S. Domenico that is quiet and peaceful, Piazza Sant’Agostino is always animated, noisy; always upside down for the goods displayed in the fairs and in the markets, cluttered for the peddlers’ desks; almost at every hour vibrating with the sound of the church bells; many times crowded for the meetings of the Italian Communist Party, which has its provincial headquarters here.
And there is no longer the clamor of the washerwomen, who until a few dozen years ago always flocked to public wash-houses. Piazza Sant’Agostino, the nicest square in Arezzo (who thinks it is Saturday morning!), Has on its eastern side the Church of St. Augustine that dominates with its bulk and with the its majestic bell tower; on the south side opens the Margaritone street traced in our century; on the west side is access to the Corso Italia ; on the north side runs the Via Garibaldi.
The square is full of bars and restaurants and at night it becomes one of the most popular places for young people in the city.
