  Campidoglio, Rome
The Capitoline Hill or Campidoglio is the smallest of Rome's seven hills, but it was the religious and political center of the city since its foundation more than 2500 years ago.
Construction of the Piazza di Campidoglio started in 1546 but only the staircase at the entrance of the Palazzo Senatorio was completed when Michelangelo died in 1564.
Near the Piazza del Campidoglio, at the site of the ancient temple of Juno is the Santa Maria in Aracoeli, a church which origins go back to the 6th century.

 Romeguide - Capitoline Hill, Campidoglio, Rome
From earliest times on, the Capitolione hill (or Campidoglio) was the centre of the political, social, and religious life of Rome.
Michelangelo' s Piazza del Campidoglio now stands on its summit, defined by illustrious palaces and magnificently decorated by the statue of Marcus Aurelius, set at the center of the intriguing interplay of elipses and volutes Michelangelo himself designed on the grey pavement of the square.
Formerly in the Lateran square, the Marcus Aurelius was moved to the Capitoline in 1538 and had not apparently been previously taken into consideration by Michelangelo as decoration for the square.

  Campidoglio - The Three Fountains
The three fountains of the Campidoglio have one fundamental characteristic in common-that of being a part of Rome from a period of great antiquity.
This is, of course, as it should be?as Michelangelo meant it to be when, some three hundred and seventyfive years ago, the vision of the Campidoglio as it now stands unfolded itself in his brain.
It is too small for the niche it occupies, and is so out of proportion to its surroundings and on so different a plane of artistic treatment that it would quite spoil any creation less triumphantly dominant than is this whole staircase and fagade.

 Piazza del Campidoglio - Michelangelo - Great Buildings Online
"A few years after he arrived in Rome, Pope Paul III (Farnese) decided to reshape the Capitoline Hill into a monumental civic piazza; Michelangelo designed the project and his Piazza del Campidoglio is one of the most significant contributions ever made in the history of urban planning.
The hill's importance as a sacred site in antiquity had been largely forgotten due to its medieval transformation into the seat of the secular government and headquarters for the Roman guilds, and it was in forlorn condition when Michelangelo took charge of reorganizing it as a dynamic new center of Roman political life.

 Domus Aurelia Rome, near Vatican - Monuments - Campidoglio
In the early 1500's, Campidoglio, meaning "Capitol Building", found on the lowest of the seven Roman Hills, Capitoline Hill, the civic and political heart of the ancient city, was in a forsaken condition.
The symmetry of the trapezoid shaped Piazza Campidoglio, with a line which goes from the Ancient steps, passes the statue of Marco Aurelio and finishes at the Bell tower of Palazzo Senatorio and is rivaled only by Piazza S. Pietro, built a century later by Bernini, inspired by Michelangelo's architectural work of art.
Piazza Campidoglio is shaped in a way that, not only is it the arrival point but also the passageway from the Renaissance city to the ancient imperial capital and its importance continues to endure even today.

The Campidoglio as it exists now, however, was built primarily during the Renaissance to impress Holy Roman Emperor Charles V, who planned a visit to the city several years following his troops' sack of Rome.
Most visitors to the Campidoglio walk through it quickly on the way to the Capitoline Museums, remembering only briefly a note in their guidebook that said it was somehow connected to Michelangelo.
The Campidoglio has been an important part of Roman life from the city's mythic origins to its current role as housing the local government, and the location should not be underestimated, both for its historic significance and its artistic harmony.

 Campidoglio - The Lion Fountain
The third fountain in the trio of the Campidoglio is to be found in the upper garden of the Palazzo dei Conservatori - the building to the right hand in the ascent of the Cordonata.
It can hardly be called a fountain, since it is merely a large basin of water surrounding some rockwork on which stands an old bit of sculpture of a character manifestly inappropriate to the senti­ment of a fountain.
The high value evidently placed upon it by its origi­nal possessor was also given to it by its discoverers.

 Campidoglio, Roma - by Activitaly
L’odierna maestosa piazza del Campidoglio è situata sul Mons Capitolinus della Roma Pagana.
Sul Campidoglio avveniva la cerimonia di investitura dei consoli il primo gennaio e da qui partivano i governatori inviati nelle provincie dell’impero.
L’abbandono generale era tanto evidente che quando si volle preparare un’accoglienza trionfale all’imperatore Carlo V si dovette evitare il colle perché visibilmente troppo misero.

Il Campidoglio era il colle piu' inaccessibile, dove si insidiarono i primi abitanti della citta'.
La popolazione dei Sabini per conquistare il Colle, dovete convincere Tarpea, la figlia del guardiano del Campidoglio, a farli entrare, promettendole in regalo "gli oggetti che tenevano sul braccio".
Mentre Tarpea tradi' i romani e fece entrare i nemici, in un'altra occasione alcune rumorose oche salvarono Roma: durante un attacco notturno al Campidoglio, il loro forte starnazzare sveglio' i romani, che poterono cosi' difendersi dall'invasione.

Michelangelo's design for the Piazza del Campidoglio was one of the first efforts to make a public space in which all the elements function as a whole.
At the center of a trapezoidal area, flanked by three palaces, was the ancient Roman equestrian statue of Marcus Aurelius, the second-century ruler who presided over the waning clays of the empire.
A supplementary text on the art and architecture of the Campidoglio formed by Michelangelo into one of the most imposing architectural compositions of all time, a grand environment for the political life of a great city.

It is hard to argue with the Campidoglio's stature as one of the most renowned public squares in the world, given its stately architecture and perfect proportions.
It is frequented almost entirely by tourists, and they use it for the most part as an object to be gazed at, like an outdoor museum installation.
It may not be in ruins, but nominating the Campidoglio is almost like nominating the Forum, or perhaps more appropriately, the Basilica of St. Peter.

Il Campidoglio, il più piccolo dei colli di Roma, era articolato in due alture (Capitolium e Arx) separate da una valle profonda corrispondente all'attuale piazza del Campidoglio, il cui livello era circa 8 metri al di sotto dell'attuale.
Oltre che di questo e di altri edifici templari (templi di Giunone Moneta, di Veiove e dell'Area Capitolina) il Campidoglio fu sede dell'archivio pubblico romano (Tabularium) e della Zecca di età repubblicana.

Ninety large-format colorplates-including many close-up images-and seven pages of text record his romantic sensitivity to the "triumphant vision" of the piazza's moods, its changing light, and the siting of the ancient "Equestrian Statue of Marcus Aurelius" as the apex of the piazza.
This album of photographs by distinguished photographer, sculptor, and art expert Liberman is so serenely synchronized--not only in subject matter but in sheer excellence--with the accompanying essay by Nobel Prize-winner Brodsky that the partnership of illustration and text is an irresistibly brilliant and beautiful ode to the Campidoglio.
The Piazza del Campidoglio and its three surrounding palaces--simply one of the most graceful architectural expressions in the Western world--and the statue of Marcus Aurelius, which until very recently stood in the center of the piazza, occupy the summit of the Capitoline, the smallest of Rome's seven hills.
