Photographer's Note

A Campo non ci si annoia mai
Un luogo sempre pieno di gente, punto d’incontro della vita cittadina: piazza Campo de Fiori è il luogo ideale per divertirsi e passare un po' di tempo in compagnia a qualunque ora del giorno e della notte.
Ogni centimetro di questa piazza è ricco di storia, odori e colori che fanno parte di un'atmosfera tutta da vivere e difficilmente raccontabili in questa breve nota.
Ho scelto uno scatto semplice, non ha elaborazioni di postproduzione ed è scattato in questa modalità seppiata all'origine, piochè questo luogo è senza tempo.


The square of "Campo dei Fiori" in Rome is famous for the episode that saw the philosopher Giordano Bruno burned on the rogo by the catholic Inquisition for the accusation of heresy on February 17th 1600 after Christ.

The execution is nowadays remembered by a statue built in 1889 after Christ and placed at the centre of the "Campo dei Fiori" on the initiative of the poet Pietro Cossa and which is the work of the sculptor Ettore Ferrari. The name of the place, which some people date back to the fact that one of the lovers of the Imperator Pompeo, Flora, would have lived in this area, is more likely to be attributed to the aspect of total abandon that the square, invaded by plants and flowers, had during the 15th century.
Nowadays "Campo dei Fiori", far away from the most famous tourist itineraries, represent one of the place where Rome shows with a greater transparency its most authentic character from the early morning with the open air market, up to the deepest night with the entertaining offered by the bars, restaurants and "trattorie" of the area.
