Campo dei fiori - Roma

Meaning litterally "field of flowers", Campo dei Fiori was thus named because the square was overrun by weeds and flowers during the XVth century. It is also believed that its name comes from Flora, the mistress of Pompey, rival general against Caesar who had his own theatre near the site. It was paved in 1456 and become a important road connecting many palaces. Today, the market, the shops and the bars makes it a very pleasant place a little off the other sightseeing site in Rome.

To see: the statue of the philosopher Giordano Bruno who was burnt alive under the Inquisition because he was charged with heresy, ericted in the middle of the square in 1889, the market (in the morning), the shops.
