Campo de’ Fiori

One of the liveliest squares of Rome, Campo de’Fiori (field of flowers) is a flower and vegetable market during the day, which started back in 1869, and a busy spot during the night, with crowded terraces. This major focus of Rome’s life was never this colorful: the square was site for hundreds of public executions and the statue of Giordano Bruno at the center is a reminder of those times: the philosopher was burnt alive for heresy at the Campo de’ Fiori in 1600 and all his works were placed in the Index of Forbidden Books by the Holy Office.

The square started to get the current shape around the mid-15th century when Pope Callixtus III decided to pave the area and commissioned the construction of many noble buildings such as Palazzo Orsini. Over time, this spot became an important commercial and cultural place of Rome, and in the surroundings, there are many hotels and artisan’s workshops.
