CAMPO DE' FIORI (The flower field)

Tradition would have it that the name comes from Flora, Pompeo's lover, but more likely it comes from the fact that in the late 1300's, the piazza was abandoned for a brief period, and became a meadow. Since 1869 it has been the home to a vibrant and colorful market. In the center rises the monument to Giordano Bruno, who in 1600 was burned here at the stake as a heretic for contending that the universe has no center.
