Piazza dei Signori is also known as Piazza Dante. This square in the historic centre of Verona, adjacent to Piazza delle Erbe, emerged in the Middle Ages alongside the development of the Scaliger palaces and from the very beginning had political, administrative and representative roles. 

The statue of Dante was erected in the middle of the square in 1865, since the poet spent a period of his exile from Florence in a building overlooking this site. The statue is the work of Ugo Zannoni and is in Carrara marble.

The historic centre of Verona is characterised by the Torre dei Lamberti: at 84 metres in height, it is still the tallest building in Verona. Construction began in 1172 and was commissioned by the noble yet mysterious Lamberti family.


The Great Italian Wine Showcase will be set up in the Loggia of Fra Giocondo: sparkling, white, red and rosé wines as expressions of different terroirs to meet the preferences of all wine enthusiasts.  The art of Mixology is in the forefront in the Loggia Antica, where entertaining top bartenders will prepare cocktails based on wines, liqueurs and spirits. 

The lounge area with seats in the middle of Piazza dei Signori is specifically for Vinitaly and the City audiences to taste wines and cocktails while admiring the elegant architecture of the surrounding buildings. 

And for a breath-taking toast, you can also go up to the panoramic terrace of the Torre dei Lamberti, one of the highest points in the city centre with a picture postcard view. 

ATTENTION: The Torre dei Lamberti is served by a lift. However, the Terrace can only be reached by stairs with 46 steps.
