    Piazza Galvani is hardly a tourist attraction in and of itself, but you are likely to pass through it if you are heading to the shopping street Via Farini from the historic centre of Piazza Maggiore. One you have passed L'Archiginnasio the store fronts are just that - stores - and the end of the Piazza is occupied primarily by cafés that serve exquisite hor d'oeurves and cocktails. The centre of the Piazza features a statue to Luigi Galvani (1737-98), a famous physicist from Bologna.

    Piazza Galvani lies behind the church of San Petronio opposite the Archiginnasio. The statue in the square is of the Bolognese scientist Luigi Galvani (1737-1798). He is typically credited with the discovery of biological electricity.
