I found this growing in my garden and, now, it's flowering, can someone identify it please.

It's a bit of a close up, but is it Leycesteria? I often get self-set ones pop up in my garden.

Looks like Leycesteria to me too!
Gardening is the great leveller.

Thanks so much for your replies.  I think it looks worth saving, so will be finding a suitable spot to replant it.

Thanks again!

Yes, it's quite pretty - I've a self-sown one in my hedge, and it's staying. It does get a bit woody and thin with age, so you might need to prune out the older bits every few years.
My garden is smaller than your Rome, but my pilum is harder than your sternum!

In my garden they only last a few years so I was always glad of the seedlings but none left now.
