Campo de' Fiori is a market place in the old part of the city of Rome.  Campo de' Fiori, translated literally from Italian, means "field of flowers."  In the Middle Ages the area was a meadow.  It was an unused space between Pompey's Theatre and the flood-prone Tiber.  Until the 15th century the square remained undeveloped.  The area was paved in 1456.  The square has remained a focus for commercial and street culture.  Capital punishment used to be held publicly in Campo de' Fiori.  On February 17, 1600, the philosopher Giordano Bruno was burned alive by the Roman Inquisition.  All of his work was placed on the Index of Forbidden Books by the Holy Office.  In 1887 Ettore Ferrari dedicated a monument to him on the spot of his death.  He stands facing the Vatican.  The theologian and scientist Marco Antonio de Dominis was also burned in this square in 1624.  A colorful, busy market is held in the square each morning with stalls occupying the central square and shops and restaurants located in the buildings around the perimeter.  One may find flowers and food of all types. The market is taken down each afternoon.
