Really the most conclusive history of the square I can imagine being packed in one book. I am sure there are thousands of more personal histories, as something memorable seems to happen every day at this crossroads of culture, social classes, artistry and academics. Well presented, great visual research, make this book a feast for the eyes. This well researched and new primary research is a great feast for the curious.

I walk around the square for my job and I was curious and now satisfied.

Great old pictures of the square, and some interesting interviews.
