Campo de' Fiori information
Noisy, colourful ‘Il Campo’ is a major focus of Roman life: by day it hosts one of Rome's best-known markets, while at night it morphs into a raucous open-air pub. For centuries the square was the site of public executions, and it was here that the philosopher Giordano Bruno was burned at the stake for heresy in 1600. The spot is marked by a sinister statue of the hooded monk, created by Ettore Ferrari and unveiled in 1889.
The piazza's poetic name (Field of Flowers) explains what stood here before the square was laid out in the mid-15th century.
