This place originally was called Piazza alla Croce due to the Porta alla Croce, still present, the former gate of the medieval walls. A number of concave neoclassical palaces were built around the square.
On the square, at the bifurcation of the Giovine Italia and Amendola boulevards, is the building that hosts the State Archives, where until 1977 was the Casa della Gioventù Italiana del Littorio of Florence.
In 2003 - 2004, a three-story underground parking garage was built under the square .
