Giordano Bruno by Aakami Giordano Bruno by Aakami
Because I'm freak xD
On the piazza dei fiori there is the monument of Giordano Bruno, philosophe who was burned alive there by holy inquistion because he, inspired by Kopernik's theory, said that human is as far from heaven as he is from hell (sky and ground) and in that case nither being shy nor being proud has no sense.
The monument made big impression on me, because of it's silence power and the speachless reproach. When you look at him, you feel that the right was on his side.

it's was sick he was killed for having a different point of view ... A lot of people still condemn you for having a different point of view.

Well, Christian Church was good at that, wasn't it - killing off those who were able to do some good, change something, move the science forward...

I like this picture a lot.
Anyway Bruno is not one of my favourites philosophers, but he's so solemn in this statue.

I think he wasn't a genius, but he had great intuitions about universe. Anyway he was still a "wizard", as he said about himself,not a sciencist, so he could not to be objective on his observations. He was a philosopher, at all, philosopy can be discussed =)
However I saw this statue personally, I live in Rome =D

Oooh, I envy you so much then :3 It's beatufiul city! ^^ Ha, I am trying to study italian, but because my mum is italian teacher I never really wanted to and now I wish she made me learn it when I was a kid xD But because she have some courses in Italy, I have chance to visit it often :D

I like what you said about him having great intuition. That's so true.

I counldn't resist buying some *lemons* on Campo di Fiori, where this statue stands, so I must be a freak as well ; )

Glad to see I'm not the only one who visits statues of important heretics...
