    "Campidoglio" built atop the Capitoline Hill where much of the action in "Coriolanus" takes place. Michelangelo changed the orientation of the U-shap built forms - by almost 180 degrees. Rome's civic center used to face the Roman Forum (you can see the ruins behind the piazza.) However, the large piazza and buildings, designed in the 16th century by Michelangelo, were turned around to face St. Peter's Basilica. This was symbolic gesture of change regarding the future of Rome at a time when Pope Paul III wanted to impress the powers of Europe. The piazza literally turned its back to the ancient Roman forum to face St' Peter's in the Vatican.
