The iconic Hill neighborhood in south St Louis is getting a brand-new attraction. The Piazza Imo is opening with grand style on Sunday at 1:30 p.m. The piazza is an open area gathering spot across from St. Ambrose Church at Wilson and Marconi. The vacant lot was turned into a lush garden with a massive Italian fountain as the centerpiece.

Piazzas are common all over Italy as a place for people to meet before and after church and gather with friends. The piazza was built with money raised from donations. It features custom-made iron gates handcrafted for the space. The gates open up to an area where benches line the stone walkway and chess tables sit under the trees. A prayer garden is located in the back of the piazza.
