Recorriendo las plazas de Roma

 

“Todos los caminos conducen a Roma” versa el dicho popular y la gran cantidad de personas que se desplazan por la ciudad, parecen dar la razón. Romanos y turistas pueblan las calles, monumentos y plazas. La vida estalla junto con la primavera y la gente se reúne en los puntos neurálgicos de la bella Roma, como pueden serlo sus plazas. Circundadas por palacios algunas, convertidas en verdaderos museos otras, lo cierto es que son espacios donde confluye la efervescencia vital de esta ciudad.

He aquí las ocho plazas más populares:

1- Plaza Navona: Para muchos, la más bella de todas. Las gradas que la circundan fueron originalmente las gradas del estadio que mandó a construir el emperador Domiciano.  En el centro se halla la famosa Fuente de los Cuatro Ríos (Bernini): Danubio, Ganges, Nilo y La Plata que representan los cuatro continentes conocidos entonces.

2- Campo dei Fiori: La única plaza de Roma que no tiene iglesia. Su espacio central lo ocupa un mercado de flores y verduras, pero al atardecer cambia su fisonomía con la presencia de los jóvenes que se reúnen al pie de la estatua de Giordano Bruno.

3-Plaza de España: Famosa por su imponente escalinata que asciende hacia la Iglesia de la Trinidad del Monte, no es, sin embargo, tan imponente como otras. Al pie de la escalinata y frente a la Vía del Condotti, encontramos La Baraccia, el monumento atribuído a Bernini rodeado de acalorados adolescentes que apenas prestan atención a los monumentos del lugar.

4-Plaza del Pueblo: De ella parten tres vías que llevan a la Plaza de España, Plaza Venecia y Plaza Nicosia, por eso se la conoce como plaza El Tridente. En el centro del inmenso circo destaca en solitario el obelisco que trajera Augusto de Heliópolis en tanto que dos iglesias barrocas, gemelas, de Carlo Rinaldi y una rampa que conduce a los jardines del Monte Pinicio caracterizan este lugar que se utiliza a menudo como lugar de citas.

5-Plaza del Campidoglio: Diseñada por Miguel Ángel se alza en lo alto del Capitolio, una de las siete colinas de Roma. No bastarían estas pocas líneas para contar toda la historia que cabe en esta pequeña plaza, cuya Cordonata, el elegante acceso, mitad rampa, mitad escalinata, diseñada por Miguel Ángel, constituye en sí mismo una buena razón para visitarla.

6-Plaza de Trevi: Su nombre deriva de las tres calles (tre vie) que convergen en ella.  Su famosa fuente, inmortalizada en la película La dolce vita, recoge diariamente unos 3.000 euros en monedas de los más diversos países.

7-Plaza del Trastevere: Este popular barrio está lleno de placitas pero la más conocida es la de Santa María in Trastevere,  que es nada menos que de la iglesia más antigua de Roma dedicada a María, probablemente construida en el siglo III de nuestra era.

8-Plaza de San Pedro: Todo el frente lo ocupa la impresionante Basílica de San Pedro y constituye el gran punto de encuentro del mundo cristiano; un conjunto urbanístico extraordinario, culminación del arte barroco del siglo XVII. Esta plaza inmensa es la más visitada del mundo después de la Meca y en ella cabe casi todo el Estado del Vaticano. Es visita obligada de todos  cuantos llegan a Roma.
