The square already existed in the fifteenth century and has always been a place of fundamental exchange for the city. Tradition want that the name Campo de' Fiori refers to Flora, a woman much loved by Pompey or probably that derive from the lawn that covered the square in the '300 following abandonment. In 1456 Pope Callistus II paved the square and several historical buildings were built, such as Palazzo Orsini. Even today at the sides of the square it is possible to see the "Madonnelle", of the aedicules hanging from the walls dedicated to the Madonna dating back to the '600 and' 800.
The square for centuries was used for public executions and it is here that in 1600 the Giordano Bruno was burned because he was accused of heresy. In his memory in 1887 his bronze statue by Ettore Ferrari was placed in Campo de' Fiori.
