Square 48 had many households, many shops, some patricians, some households with servants, many households w/o surnames, and some households headed by widows. This square was much changed by urban redevelopment in the 1880s and the building of what became Pza della Repubblica. At the right in the Mercato Vecchio is the surviving column surmounted by the Donatello (now replica of G.B. Foggini copy from 1721) statue of Abundance. "
