Piazza del Popolo

Piazza del Popolo, Roma

The history of Piazza del Popolo dates back to 1538, when it was the scene of public executions (the last execution in 1826). Today's neo-classical style was designed and built by the architect Valadier in 1815-1816. In the middle of square, there is the Egyptian obelisk Flamine (from the Ramses II period) which was delivered to Rome by the emperor Augustus Caesar. On the southern side, there are the Baroque churches called “twins” of Santa Maria dei Montesanto and Santa Maria dei Maracoli, built by Carlo Rainaldi, Bernini and Carlo Fontana. Although the two churches look almost the same from the outside, the interiors are different.
