Situato in fondo alla discesa di via Nazionale, largo Magnanapoli può apparire a prima vista una semplice rotatoria cittadina ingentilita da palmizi.

Looking good over you realize being in one of the most spectacular Roman skyline: one of those, for instance, where eras and styles (and the history, of course ...) overlap and complement each other, giving rise to a "unique". Via Nazionale-behind us-represents by itself the imprint of Capital post circle: comes from the impressive esedra of the "Terme di Diocleziano" with the "Fountain of the naiads" and falls straight down here, between early Christian churches, palaces, noble villas and gardens Umbertine and luxury hotels. The via XXIV Maggio goes to our right to the incomparable scenery of "piazza del Quirinale" giving to our view the Presidential Palace with the front "stables"; the "Fontana dei Dioscuri" with the Egyptian obelisk and the large "Cup" marmoreal; the gardens of Palazzo Colonna "eye-shaped" and "Palazzo Pallavicini"; the "Palazzo della Consulta", the "Chiesa di San Silvestro" and the wide view of the baroque city. The "Novembre" in front of us, down to "piazza Venezia" letting us glimpse scorching "Altare della Patria" with chariot races of winged victories and opening access to the wide archaeological area of "Trajan", often used as a venue for artistic and social events. To our left, in full colour contrast, stand alongside the "Church of Saint Catherine of Siena" and the "Arch of Titus". Red brick and white marble the first the second but is almost 50 meters height, despite being tilted and devoid of his third level because of an earthquake. Along with his few surviving Sisters (one for all, not far "Tor de ' Conti" on the corner of via dei Fori Imperiali with via Cavour) reminds us that the Medieval Rome was a city full of this type of construction: real "fortified" houses, visible and tangible symbol of the power of many rival families vying bloodily the dominance of the ancient "Urbs". To close the circle of largo Magnanapoli finally the "Santi Domenico e Sisto"-in a high position and with its beautiful staircase to ellipse-acting almost as a watershed between two streets is equally impressive. The "Salita del Grillo" (but from here is downhill ...) that leads to the eponymous Palace-remember the movies of Alberto Sordi? ...-and the vestiges of the "Temple of Mars ultor", built by Augustus to celebrate his victory over Antony and Cleopatra at the battle of Actium. And then "via Panisperna" ... whose Latin name "panis ac Pandey" literally means "via bread and ham" (!) and that, with its ups and downs leads to the marble of triumph "Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore" on the Summit of the Esquiline Hill. In essence, we realize that we are in a real open air museum where history has stopped time in the beauty of the surrounding architectures and iridescent background of heaven Romans. And while car traffic continues unremitting around us, in accordance with the song of Michael Jackson, we seem to be really ... the navel of the world!!!show original
