  • Multicultural neighbourhood with small palaces and houses often remodeled. The police in Rome is the new Pigneto but with less problematic, more services and many young people. Maybe someday I will go there to live because there is still plenty of friends and lie so well. There is even the neighbourhood Committee

  • District of historical origin (about 1600) with a strong anti-fascist and anti-Nazi array, now being recovered, but still very popular

  • That day in 1164 such Guadralis (hence its current name) looked at the large green space in the direction of the Alban hills. In fact a good chunk of that land had become her for good agreement with the monks of Sant'Alessio, job guarantee and profits in Exchange for some products. Rome far though one day it would come down to there, though he couldn't know. That piece of future city, less than two square kilometers over Porta Furba, between the streets Casilina and Centocelle on one side, Tor Pignattara and parks of Tor Fiscale and the other aqueducts, and crossed by Via Tuscolana and Metro, would become the current Qader. That is not a neighbourhood, rather a State of mind. And just where is the street of the same name-at the beginning of the twentieth century-housed the workshop of an artisan madman burner of waste materials. For everyone since Carter. There were a few precarious houses and shacks, the first breath of a rebellious and anti-fascist who was coming up soon, borghetto unlike townships in any way you think by the city authorities of the time, on the initiative of the inhabitants sometimes driven to build illegally by landowners terrified of the possibility of expropriation. So here's a widening over the years as piazza, a church, a cinema, railway, tram (before yellow and then white and light blue) that connected Rome as a long trip to the outpost of Cinecittà. Then low houses and narrow streets. A bit like in Pigneto, but is later built and less spontaneous. And with a spirit of solidarity and belonging (though someone maybe ashamed to live there) that still distinguishes this minimal community. Maybe induced, amplified by the fact that among laborers, craftsmen and farmers, there wasn't that much to bite. All strengthened in April 17, 1944, about 900 men's roundup last between 16 and 60 years taken by force and sent to Germany in ' work camps '. People brave and tough, but half did not return home. Yet here the time seems to have only scratched the way of being of the people. That still strives, they know each other, meet, participate, help (bear intrusions and/or slander due to live closely together), clamoring services and better living conditions, but do not renounce to feel ' country ' in the city. Maybe because here the loyalty is coarse and friendship is passion. It is where some, if forced, they go away, but at heart they hope to return. Because ancient Rome does little head from his 3° Mausoleum (Monte del Grano), perhaps final resting place of Emperor Alexander Severus and his mother. And, finally, because talented and creative fantasy color the walls of some roads to a location/free project and outdoor, easy for people easy to always intimidated by exhibitions and art galleries. One more reason to get out of the traffic lights and thumping businesses deliriously Tuscolana (Metro to Porta Furba-Quadraro) to try to feel this place as it must be for his people, a hug. Maybe nervous as its murals. alfredodenicolais

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.
