Residence Campo De' Fiori... Historical Outline...
An apartment near Piazza Campo dei Fiori. The square has housed since 1869 a lively and colourful food market, whose atmosphere became well-known thanks to the popular film "Campo de' Fiori" made in 1943, starring Anna Magnani and Aldo Fabrizi. It formerly hosted performances, horse races and executions. At its center there is the large bronze statue by Ettore Ferrari, inaugurated in 1887, dedicated to the philosopher and Dominican friar Giordano Bruno, who was sentenced to death for heresy and burned alive on February 17th 1600, just in the place where his monument stands today.
Campo de' Fiori is the only major Roman square without churches. In the evening it is a popular meeting place, with many clubs, bars and typical restaurants which enliven the Roman nights, making it one of the city's most popular meeting places. Via dei Baullari, Via del Pellegrino, Via di Monserrato, and many other surrounding streets are full of shops, from the most classic to the trendiest, craft shops, antique dealers and the like. Walking along these streets and admiring the facades of their buildings, you can breathe a wonderful renaissance atmosphere. In just a three minutes' walk, after crossing the Corso Vittorio Emanuele, you reach the gorgeous Piazza Navona.
