Along Via Gramsci there is Piazza Don Minzoni, which is the result of a bombing during World War II that caused the demolition of a building. The square is enclosed by the Church of Sant'Apollinare, also known as the Church of Death, from the confraternity that ran it. Although some documents attest to its existence as early as 1116, currently it is an elegant 18th-century greek cross building. The square is characterized by a fountain called Ricordo del dolore umano e monumento alla pace (Remembrance of Human Sorrow and Monument to Peace), created by Ivan Theimer in 2004. The square is also called Turtle Square because of the bronze sculptures at the foot of the fountain.
