Piazza Scacciaricci Viterbo
The Piazza Scacciaricci, unlike the squares in the historic center, was not built by wealthy or noble people but by ordinary citizens. For the locals this is a source of pride, so this is commemorated with a plaque on one of the buildings in the square.
In the square there is a house with a profferlo, a medieval staircase leading to an exterior balcony or a loggia, from which one entered the house. Below the staircase there was usually an archway leading to (usually) a store room. The profferlo is an architectural element that was commonly used in Viterbo.
