  • Upon reaching Piazza Mercantile, near the Palace of the seat, there is a white marble column surmounted by a sphere and a stone lion crouched at the base, which bears on the chest a collar with engraved inscription Custos Iusticiae, which is the guardian of Justice. Raised toward the goal of 500 by Decree of the Spanish Viceroy, the corrupt and mischief-makers, debtors and bankrupts, seems to be made of this animal horse, tied to the column of Justice and "exposed to the public." with your bottom bared and hands chained to the column. If this practice came into use in this poor Italy how many colonnades of St. Peter's square would be needed?

  • Seemingly a simple sculpture composed of a column surmounted by a sphere and a lion, with four steps than the roadway ... And instead, to appreciate it, you have to know the name and then the uses to which they were doing in the past. The column of Justice is located in Piazza Mercantile and insolvent debtors were tied to it, the bankrupts and those who declared bankruptcy. They were punished with public exposure. For this reason it is also called Colonna Infame.

  • This ancient monument, which preserves its splendor, despite the vandalism, was once a place of scandal and shame, I thought we could put it back in use!
