The Piazza del Popolo

The Piazza del Popolo (English: People's Square) is a famous square in Rome located near the Porta Flaminia, the northern gate of the Aurelian Walls. The square houses Santa Maria dei Miracoli and Santa Maria di Montesant.

History

The future site of the famous Piazza del Popolo, in the early 15th century the Piazza was merely the continuation of the Via Flaminia. As a result, it was most travelers' first view of Rome upon arrival.[1]

In 1503 Cesare Borgia attempted to rally the last of his troops at the city gate, promising them power in return for their service. However, the Assassin Ezio Auditore da Firenze, along with his allies Niccolo MachiavelliClaudia Auditore da FirenzeBartolomeo d'Alviano, and La Volpe, battled the troops and defeated all of them with the help of an Apple of Eden.[2]

In the confusion Cesare managed to escape to the other side of the gate and waited for his army, formerly stationed in Urbino, to arrive and help him take back Rome. However, the soldiers that arrived were commanded by Fabio Orsini, who arrested Cesare by the order of the newly elected Pope Julius II, on charges of murder, betrayal, and incest.[2]
