Also burned in the Campo - Giordano Bruno

Campo de'Fiori - Rome

Seagull, perched on top of the statue to Giordano Bruno...

A former Dominican friar who became a philosopher, mathematician and Copernican
astronomer prior to being declared a heretic at the personal intervention of
Pope Clement VIII.

The cardinals of the Inquisition sentenced him to be burned at the stake here
on February 17, 1600. Despite having acknowledged that the earth is not at the
centre of the Universe, no pardon as yet...
