City maps and Rome guide
The apartment is part of an eighteenth century building that, together with similar ones, was built on the top of the hill and embellished the area after the rebirth of the city, one thousand years after the fall of the Roman empire.
Straight roads and water supply gave a new life to this district that in Roman time was known as Suburra.
At that time you would have found here the house of Julius Cesar. He lived in the Suburra till the moment he was elected Pontifex Maximus. He then moved to the Domus Publica in the old Forum, a short walk from here. Caesar built a new forum on the northern side of the old one.
A few tens of meter up north the Forum of Caesar was the house of the great Michelangelo. It had been unluckily torn down at the beginning of the twentieth century. Michelangelo left some of his masterpieces all around the area: the Capitoline hill and square design, the Moses statue and the church of Santa Maria degli Angeli e dei Martiri.
A century later Gian Lorenzo Bernini had his home at the end of our road, on the side of the basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore. He worked on the Basilica with his father and he is still resting there in a humble tomb. He worked also on the well known Barcaccia fountain at the base of the Spanish Steps, on Palazzo Barberini and on the church of Sant’Andrea al Quirinale, all at walking distance.
