This piazza was built on the site of the Stadium of Domitian, which was constructed during the 1st century. At the southwest end, stands the ancient speaking statue of Pasquino. Unearthed and erected in the Piazza in 1501, the statue was used by citizens as a sign post for social parodies and anonymous derogatory comments, which were attached to it for all to read. A truly ingenious concept, in my opinion.
