In this square there is one of the first christian churches of Rome: San Lorenzo in Lucina (IV – V century A.D.). Lucina is the name of the Roman matron who gave the permission to build that place of worship.

A rococò square designed by the architect Filippo Raguzzini in 1727-1728. It wants to remind the stage of a theater.

A vibrant market is always taking place in the square where Giordano Bruno has been burned alive. The name (field of flowers) remembers the meadow that was present  in the middle ages.

Luxury shops and economy changes threat the presence of the "botteghe", ancient workshops. Only few of them still resist.

This road crossing ruins is a jewel. It links the Capitoline Hill with the Jewish ghetto and so the river.

As I always says, the best way to enjoy Rome is to get lost.

Piazza Trilussa
       
     
Piazza Trilussa

The hub of the nightlife in the rione of Trastevere. I always miss to sit on those stairs and see the spectacle of life. Rome misses its poet Trilussa (1871-1950). Of him is the poem of the cripple cricket (Er grillo zoppo) telling the story of a dying cricket that lost a leg for the fun of a child. The blood was coming out as a shining spark, beautiful vision for the cricket because it was meaning that his suffering was near to end. And concludes: may God bless every drop of blood spilled to write the word freedom.
