Piazza to be built in the heart of The Hill

A big addition is coming to the Hill neighborhood in South St Louis.  A piazza is going to be built in the heart of the Italian American community.  You will find piazzas all over Italy.  They are an open-air gathering place that is usually located next to the neighborhood church.  It’s a place where people gather after a church or neighborhood celebration.  It is a place to relax, talk and soak up the sun.

Now St Louis is getting its own piazza right across from St. Ambrose Church and School on Marconi.  It is a vacant lot right now but it will have open-air green space, benches, landscaping, granite walkways, chess tables and at the center, a huge Italian fountain.  The Imo family bought the lot and donated it to the nonprofit building the piazza.
