Via dei Giubbonari

This street was laid out by the order of Sixtus IV and was originally named Via Florea. It went through Campo dei Fiori (Campo di Flora) from the zone of Banchi to the market of S.Angelo in Pescheria. For all of its history this street was a seat of little shops, specialized mostly in clothes. Later a confraternity of coat vendors joined the confraternity of tailors and of shoe-makers, calling this new professional organization "giubbonari", from where the name of the street comes.
