Largo di Torre Argentina

Local nameArea sacra dell'Argentina
LocationRome, Italy

Largo di Torre Argentina is a square in Rome, Italy, with four Roman Republican temples and the remains of Pompey's Theatre. It is in the ancient Campus Martius.The name of the square comes from the Torre Argentina, which takes its name from the city of Strasbourg whose Latin name was Argentoratum. In 1503, the Papal Master of Ceremonies Johannes Burckardt, who came from Strasbourg and was known as "Argentinus", built in via del Sudario a palace, called Casa del Burcardo, to which the tower is annexed.

The other tower in the square is not the one giving the name to the place but the medieval Torre del Papito, attributed by tradition to Antipope Anacletus II Pierleoni, allegedly not a tall person.
