  • We can say that the square you meet coming from the bridge as Trastevere, you enter on viale Trastevere that seamlessly and the statue of Roman poet par excellence with Trilussa, made for the 50th anniversary of the death, welcomes you in a neighborhood that was an elsewhere than the Rome-and ministries. In fact the monument that stands imposing in his flowerbed, become refugees or bivouac better median, articulates a number of concepts: is a fairly complex monument in its entirety, made of travertine. Above a high basement is placed the statue of the poet, resting her right hand on a reconstruction of the ponte Fabricio, recognizable by the presence of one of the erme quadrifronti that characterizes it. The pedestal has reliefs with the personification of the Tiber and a scene depicting the talking statue of "Pasquino" surrounded by common people towards the Avenue. At either end are two twin fountains that receive water each from a mask.

  • At the beginning of Viale Trastevere, in Rome, there is, to give the "Welcome", the monument to Giuseppe Gioacchino BELLI: the poet of the Roman people. This remarkable monument, in white travertine marble, was planted in 1913 on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the death of that great dialectal poet. The work is a statue depicting the Beautiful resting on the side of Ponte Fabricio, the bridge connecting the Island with Lungo Tevere De ' Cenci, bridge is the oldest of Rome in that dated back to the Director and renovated in 62 BC. The sculptor of the statue of Belli, Michele Tripisciano, modeled based on the memories of those who knew him personally the poet who used to write his famous sonnets leaning to the ancient marble column on erma one end of the bridge, from the ruins of the Temple of Janus, and keeping the flow of life in Rome of his day. This monument is placed on a high podium with the gaze of the statue that looks, from a height of five meters, Romans and tourists flow on the streets of Trastevere. While the short sides of the large block there are the two "faces" of poetry and satire from whose mouths spurting a gush of water that ends up in a tank, on the two long sides are, on the side facing Viale Trastevere, an allegory of the River Tiber while, on the side towards the gardens, are a group of commoners, 19th century romanesco, which apparently costumed commenting among themselves a few "libel" around the neck of the torso marmoreo "Pasquino" , an ancient statue of the Imperial era that is located in the homonymous square in Rome where, yesterday and today, are hung raillery, more or less sarcastic, on facts or characters of the city of Rome.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
