Piazza Campo de 'Fiori
Once a simple meadow, today is a square and one of the most characteristic places of the city. A jewel among jewels, piazza Campo de' Fiori is placed between piazza Navona and piazza Farnese and is the typical scenario of old Rome.

The picturesque market that lives up the square is very typical of the city. It was moved here from piazza Navona in 1869, and it owes its name to a wonderful field full of flowers, a pasture for animals until the 15th century. The market has still wooden stands and the umbrellas protect the products from any weather. In 1440 the square was paved and around it were built many inns and hotels for pilgrims.
This is why the image is almost unchanged compared to Alinari’s pictures of the 19th century. In the middle of the square is the 19th century statue of the philosopher Giordano Bruno, sent to the stake in 1600 because he was considered an heretic. Campo de' Fiori is an example of continuity between ancient and present Rome.
