    Square of Rome (continued)

    Besides the four squares mentioned in the article on the better known Great Squares of Rome, we can count on many others of great interests.

    Piazza Venezia

    Piazza Venezia

    Hard to miss is Piazza Venezia, located near the Capitol Hill. It’s the main crossroads of the city center occupied by the imposing white mass of the monument to Victor Emmanuel II (Vittoriano), built in the honor of the first king of united Italy.

    Piazza del Popolo

    Piazza del Popolo

    Piazza del Popolo (the people’s square) is very ample, pleasant and popular as a now pedestrian square. It is at the end of Via del Corso, the shopping street that leads from Piazza Venezia to the foot of the beautiful Pincio Park.A large Obelisc is erected in its center.As the name suggests, it is often used as a place of gatherings and celebrations.

    Campo dei Fiori

    Campo dei Fiori

    Campo dei Fiori (Field of Flowers), is lively central square that hosts a food and flower market in the mornings. In its center is a statue of Giordano Bruno. Burned at the stake for heresy in 1600, it serves as a reminder of the darker times of the church.The Campo hosts many bars frequented in the evenings and a few restaurants.

    Piazza Farnese

    Piazza Farnese

    Adjacent is Piazza Farnese, in a completely different style. It is extremely elegant and located in front of one of the finest buildings of Rome, the Palazzo Farnese. Today it is the Embassy of France in Italy.Two beautiful antique baths were installed there and made into fountains.

    Piazza Bocca della Verita

    Piazza Bocca della Verita

    Piazza Bocca della Verita is situated in the ancient Forum Boarium (cattle market). It is one of the most suggestive of the city, occupied by Roman buildings in outstanding states of conservation and a former church whose porch hosts the famous manhole which gives the name to the square, the “mouth of truth”.

    Piazza Montecitorio

    Piazza Montecitorio

    Very attractive and central are also Piazza Montecitorio which holds the Italian Parliament and an obelisk at its center and the adjoining square called Piazza Colonna which boasts the impressive Column of Marcus Aurelius erected during the Roman Empire.

    We must also include other beautiful square in front of famous monuments: Piazza del Quirinale outside the Presidential Palace, near the Trevi Fountain; la Piazza della Rotonda facing the Pantheon and the nearby Piazza della Minerva; Santa Maria in Trastevere in front of the church of the same name and the Piazza della Repubblica, of modern design.
