In cities and towns, the length and breadth of the country, there are streets and squares named after Camillo Benso Count of Cavour, who was Italy's first prime minister.
Cavour, as he is better known, was in office for less than three months; he died on June 6th 1861, at the age of fifty.
There is a grand monument to Cavour in the piazza that bears his name.
