Hi Lorenzo

I know that the OSM definition says square should have area=yes, but I
find a vast number where there is no area tag and they seem to be
square/piazza, eg


With Italy data from July 2018, I get about 5000 highway=pedestrian
polygons without an area tag, and, from a small sample, about 1 in 3
look like piazza.

The only effect is that a polygon is generated, it doesn't effect
routes. I prefer to see the possible square rendered.
