Campo de'Fiori

Local name: Campo de' Fiori

Campo de 'Fiori is one of the more famous Roman squares. Both tourists and locals are attracted especially by the daily food and flower markets. There are also many restaurants and cafes, as well as local artisans' workshops.

In the middle of the square stands a somber monument Giordano Bruno. This outstanding thinker and philosopher was one of the first to openly support the Copernican theory of heliocentric theory. He was burned at the stake in 1600, at the Campo de 'Fiori. Czesław Miłosz devoted one of his poems to this event.

Square name literally means "Flower Field". Until the Middle Ages there was a meadow, now the plants are sold. Sometimes attempts are made to connect this name to Pompey's lover, Flora.
