Piazza Matteotti

The triangular main piazza of Greve is very likely the site of the original market place around which Greve has grown during the past 500 years. One of its attractions are the arched loggias that line its three sides, providing welcome shade to shoppers during mid-summer. The Church of Santa Croce, which houses some beautiful paintings of the school of Fra Angelico, is located at the southern apex of the piazza, and a lane of shops leads off from the northern side. Today Piazza Matteotti is the commercial centre of Greve and has a good range of interesting shops selling wine, ceramics, furniture, handicrafts and food supplies of all kinds. There are also several restaurants. The Coop supermarket is a three minute walk away. On Saturday mornings the piazza hosts a large open market selling fruit and vegetables and a considerable range of clothes, as well as tools, kitchen items and so on.

The excellent public swimming pool of Greve in Chianti is an easy 20 minute walk from Piazza Matteotti.

A fine statue of Giovanni Verrazzano dominates Piazza Matteotti and there is bronze sculpture in dubious taste located appropriately near the main doors of the city council building. Throughout the year, various events are held in the piazza, the most interesting being the antiques fair, the Chianti Classico wine festival and the flower festival.
