The people were gathered to recall that The Inquisition stripped Giordano Bruno naked, bound his tongue and burned him alive at the stake in Campo di' Fiori on Feb. 17, 1600, for a stubborn adherence to his then unorthodox beliefs—including the ideas that the universe is infinite and that other solar systems exist. A statue of him is in the center of the Campo di' Fiori.
Some sort of ceremony going on at 17:15 Feb 17 in the square. Many people gathered around the monument, including a group of uniformed children and of course, many speeches.
What always seems so strange to me, is according to many Roman I spoke with they do not particularly like their city, is it so different for them leaving there than for us coming to enjoy his unlimiled beauty.We just love it more from year to year and found it always harder to leave toward home once vacancy over.
Wonderful place. Vibrant, lads of local produce, very traditional. Everything a city centre should be.
No market today (29 Nov). Anyone know why?
Stall holders setting up for another great market day ...It looks chilly
I love this webcam! It brings back memories. My husband and I took a Segway tour through this beautiful market place in March. I love Rome! I can't wait to go back!!
What a great new addition! Day or night, Campo is fun! Thank you Mama's home for hosting!
What a treat to finally have this webcam. We stayed at the UW apartment overlooking the Piazza two years ago and this brings back so many great memories. Thanks!
Thank you Mama's Home for hosting this webcam. I love to watch the vendors prepare for the day as the shades go up and the vegetables and flowers come out. To me this piazza is the essence of Rome.
Thank you Skyline, we stayed in an Apartment over the market last Summer for a week (no not noisy) It was fantastic and fun, the sellers were so lovely, greeted us each morning, lots of great shops. Ooooo how we miss Rome, Hello Campo..
What a mess they make! But I'm sure it's worth it.
My sister and I stayed for six nights last June. Loved being just a few steps from Campo de Fiori. Every morning, I went out for caffe at Obica in the piazza and then to Forno for fresh, warm bread, and visited the stands tobuy fresh cherries, strawberries, peaches, apricots, and tomatoes. I love Rome and I really love this part of living like a Roman.Thank you, Mama's Home, for supplying this view.
