Piazza Navona is one of the most popular squares of tourists and Roman citizens and is located in the place where the ancient stadium of Domitian stood.

At the center of the square stands a statue of the philosopher Giordano Bruno, who was burnt alive by the Inquisition because of his theories and claims considered heretical. How come this square has this name?
There are two stories about the birth of the name: the first claims that it derives from Flora, one of the lovers of the Emperor Pompey, the second claims that it is because of the plants and flowers that covered the square in the fifteenth century. Obviously to date no more executions and judgments are held but the square is the scene of the frenetic Roman life, thanks to the open-air market that takes place in the morning and to the clubs that entertain young people and tourists during the evening hours.
