This film has been created from a performance made in Roma, in January 19 2005, at the Teatro Paladium during the Festival Sensoralia. This is a commentary about pictures shot at Campo dei Fiori (Roma) where the philosopher Giordano Bruno has been burned as an heretic by the Inquisition in February 1600.The gloomy statua dominates this place where many people walk every day, not knowing the meaning of this monument. This film is a step back to a part of History.
