"There's a great open place, and in the middle of it there is an obelisk that is four thousand years old."
Comment on this quote: The obelisk, that is referred to, is an Egyptian obelisk, that was brought to Rome by the Roman emperor Caesar Augustus (name at birth: Gaius Octavius, 63 B.C. - 14 A.D.) At first it was placed in Cirkus, but was moved to Piazza del Popolo in 1589.
