    Is there any geometric figure whose calculation (area, perimeter, ...) involves the terms pi^2 or (pi^2-1) ?

    I thought it was pretty well known that the area of a circle of radius r is
    [tex]\pi r^2[/tex]?

    Sure, check up the torus..
    The surface area of a torus with big radius R and small radius r has surface area:
    [tex]A=4\pi^{2}Rr (r<R)[/tex]
