Campo de' Fiori - Rome

The Campo de' Fiori is one of the liveliest of Roman squares. Once the site of green meadows in ancient times, the Campo is now home to a vegetable and flower market every morning except Sundays. The remainder of the day can be spent here in the rather touristy cafés and restaurants. The rather sombre statue dominating the centre of the square is a reminder that this was also a place of execution during the worst days of the Inquisition. It commemorates Giordano Bruno, a monk who was burnt to death in 1600 for heresy. The surrounding district is home to many craftsmen as the names of the streets imply: Via dei Cappellari (hatmakers), Via dei Chiavari (key-makers) and Via dei Giubbonari (tailors). These streets are very typical of the winding little lanes of old Rome.
