|Credits: image by @kirkandmimi|
Campo de’ Fiori market is one of the oldest markets in Rome. Since 1869 people coming from the Roman countryside used to go to this market to sell their products such as herbs and vegetables. The name – Fiori means Flowers in English – originates from the daisies, poppies and other wildflowers that once graced the square, which is overlooked by noble palaces belonging to the prestigious Orsini family.
The square became a place of trade and business. Several inns, taverns and hotels were built. Still today Campo de’ Fiori is a lively area in Rome, where you can shop, try food samples or just grab something to drink at night.
But the square of Campo de’ Fiori was also a place of public executions. The most known and recalled is the one concerning the philosopher Giordano Bruno, accused of heresy and burned at the stake on February 17th 1600. The bronze statue named after him sits at the center of the piazza in memory of the philosopher to celebrate the freedom of thought and wisdom.
