Caffè dei Costanti has marked the transition from the Grand Duchy to the Italian Unification. It was founded in 1804 as a place reserved for the most important aristocratic families. In the years after the unification of Italy, it became a lively meeting place open to all. In 1997, it was chosen as the setting for “La Vita è Bella” (Life is Beautiful).
