Piazza Belli owes its name to Giuseppe Gioacchino Belli (1791- 1863), a Roman poet who wrote in Roman dialect and left with its sonnets a vivid picture of Rome of the first half of the 19th century. The monument is for him and he seems to look pensive the intensive traffic, not recognizing his old Rome of the 19th century anymore. On the back, almost unreal, restored to its medieval architecture, the Palazzo Anguillara, overlooked by the gloomy tower, evokes old intrigues. At the centre of the square is the statue of poet Michele Tripisciano (1913).
