In ancient times this area was a court-yard – parvis delimited by a boundary wall. Outside there was a fountain dedicated to Pope Orsini, who realized it.
During the French occupation (1806/1815) the city governor Louis de Bees dedicated the square to Carlo Maurizio Talleyrand, Prince of Benevento. In the centre was erected the fountain surmounted by an obelisk dedicated to Talleyrand, too.
The square has also been named to Umberto I and Giacomo Matteotti.
Moreover, the square disposition, above all the paving, has undergone a lot of transformations.
