The last work worth of noting, created in times that are more recent is the Piazzale Michelangelo. Architect Giuseppe Poggi in honor of the great artist Michelangelo built this place in 1869. The success recorded of the Piazzale Michelangelo was that it actually is present in the itineraries of international tour operators. Every day a large number of tourists visits this terrace of Florence where they can enjoy a spectacular view of the city and its monuments. The city has completed the panoramic square when Florence was the capital of Italy. In these times were executed many other works that partially changed the appearance of the historic center of Florence. These works served to bring the city to the new function of capital in order to modernize the urban structure of Florence and embellish the appearance. The work changed profoundly in some areas of the city and not all agreed on the adequacy of some changes made in that period. All these works of "restoration" of the city were the last major investment dedicated to the creation of architectural works of the same level which were made in Florence ever. All works made later were with the sole function to adapt and modernize the city to the modern lifestyle. Unfortunately, not for the needs of the modern world, but for the lack of major economic resources compared to the past, Florence is not able to create monumental works worthy the fame nowadays. Despite this, Florence remains one of the most important cities in the world from an artistic point of view and one of the major capitals of the European culture.
