  • Aboard the tram no.3 from the Colosseum and South train path of Calle San Gregorio, and came near the Porta Capena square on the left. It was a beautiful building that clearly amuse themselves in one corner of the square many streets only this building was a lone, get rid of. Lined with three arches on the ground floor, there are privy to the entrance to the iron railing, were both closed. That originally was located near, and moved to its current location, is rebuilt. Not knowing what building in appearance, was made by the Church and other religious institutions.

  • Renaissance Pavilion, formerly on the opposite side of the street (where he is currently the FAO), demolished and rebuilt, with some modifications, in the current location. On the other side of the square stood the "Stele of Axum, taken to Rome in 1937 by Benito Mussolini. Between 2005 and 2008, among a thousand polemics, was returned to Ethiopia.

  • It is the most even the Romans a strange thing because there are no signs. In Piazza di Porta Capena, on the right you see a graceful landmark block, la Casina Vignola Boccapaduli. This historic building dates back to the early 1500 's, the only certain date is that of 1538, where la Casina was bought by Prosperous Boccapaduli from which it took part of its name. The second part of the name comes from the allocation to the constructor, but there is some evidence. The little house once stood at the baths, situated between the cloisters of s. Balbina and San Saba and was used as a summer house. Consists of three main blocks the stairs on three sides, the porch and the first floor where the rooms. In 1910 was appointed the architect Pietro Guidi to be rebuilt next to the Circus Maximus, where is today. However despite the importance that he served during both world wars as surgery, by the time he finished with being abandoned. By 1992, interest in the Casina Vignola Boccapaduli rekindled and now, after many years of disuse, and after the restoration work is clearly visible.

  • Quite a small building.
  • Nice
  • Since I was a kid this construction has always fascinated me, for both the shape and the place in which it is located; at the center of the coming and going of cars heading towards the Colosseum or towards Caracalla but far from other buildings. For this reason I wanted to know some peculiarity. In 1911 it was moved from its location, which was located on the other side of the square, near the FAO to be rebuilt in its current location. The reason was that the Government of the time wanted to valorise the Archaeological Park of Porta Capena taking away everything that did not belong to the classical Latin culture. The architect who took charge of this shift, took liberties, adding elements that were not present in the original construction, as the steps used by tourists to rest a while before continuing the walk to other attractions.
