Overview

Piazza di Pasquino is one of the many squares that has become a feature of the great Roman empire. But it has become more famous because of the statue of Pasquino—a tailor who enjoyed speaking ill about the nobles. Even today people paste messages and claims under the statue continuing the Roman tradition of lampooning. Palaces and historic buildings still stand side by side with the modern brick buildings. Although many old buildings have been pulled down to be replaced by newer ones, the love of tourists for this Piazza has not declined even a bit. One of the reasons for this is the many shops and restaurants that abound here and the proximity to Piazza Novona, which is another shopping district.
