By turning towards the iconic Quadriportico, you overlook the Sentierone where the inhabitants of Bergamo use to meet and have a walk and which brings you to the Torre dei Caduti, the symbol of the City and the distinctive feature of Centro Piacentiniano.
Departing from Centro Piacentiniano, the focal point of the modern city, you can choose to visit two historical districts located on the East and on the West side of the old city fair, respectively: Borgo Pignolo and Borgo San Leonardo.
