  Streets of Rome

The name is due to a torment imposed on the condemned, many of whom were given to death in the nearby Campo of Fiori. The stretch of rope was a system of torture and a corporal punishment in use until the nineteenth century. It was the main means of torture of the Roman Inquisition, since the church wanted to avoid, within certain limits, bloodshed. The same term « torture » derives precisely from the widespread practice of twisting the arms as a means of torture.
