  • In any other city in the world the ruins in this forecourt would be a highlight. With the many works of Rome you lose a little. Anyway interesting, also because it is in the center not much distance from Piazza Navona.

  • As Roma, as many archaeological sites. Come on suddenly ruins, even a Kanji, is overwhelming. Pillar stands at an impressive ruins is a friendly, easy go I want.

  • Paganica is a name very familiar to the Romans, but also frequently encountered by tourists as it identifies a square, and also a street of the same name adjacent to largo Argentina, transport hub to the Center and Trastevere and Monteverde and above all the wide area Archaeology beneath the roadway. The square is in fact a bit detached from this area, ensuring a quiet oasis from the traffic, by businesses and by tourists, say it with the way and the nearby piazza della Enciclopedia italiana deserve a visit. The name comes from the village of Paganica which James and Alessandro Mattei were Dukes and identifies the Palace today seat of the ist. ENC. It publishes the Tan, part with other monumental buildings of the so-called "Island Mattei" (such as with the nearby palazzo Mattei and Mattei square). It was built on the ruins of the Theatre of Lucius Cornelius Balbus "Renaissance" on draft attributed or Vignola or Nanni di Baccio Bigio and has an element of absolute importance in the beautiful portal surmounted by the inscription "LUD MATTHAEIUS PETR ANT FIL LUD NEPOS "(or" Louis Mattei, son of Mirza and grandson of Louis ") and a balcony with balustrade, which in turn leads into a courtyard to the double order of loggias. The building's façade was completed later during the 17th century by a single cornice with band on which they appear masks and eagles, the heraldic symbol of Mattei. For many Romans the building is best remembered for the madonnella which is included in the façade of via delle Botteghe oscure (which is perhaps the only surviving portion of 15th century); is a shrine that encloses the image of "Our Lady of Providence", formerly called "Virgin in piazza Dell ' Olmo" the presence near a large elm. Particularly venerated this Madonnella since 1796, was seen "cry and move your eyes" due to the French invasion in the Papal States, along with other sacred images of the historic center, P.S. I agree with other authoritative reviewers that goes INSTANTLY REMOVED each photo identifying the square with the area of Torre Argentina; such oversight is possible perhaps Canicattì not in capital/caput mundi.
