THE ROMANCE OF VIA MARGUTTA

VIA MARGUTTA is a small street in the center of Rome, in Campo Marzio district ( known as the district of foreigners)

a place of art galleries and fashionable restaurants, which once housed shops and stalls.


It is a parallel of Via del Babuino, the road that runs from Piazza del Popolo to the Spanish Steps.

One of the symbols of the street is the FONTANA DELLE  ARTI, in marble, surmounted by a bucket of brushes, two masks, one sad and one happy (the moods of the artists) resting on shelves applied on painters easels.

You are in the heart of Rome, but the silence is so pleasant to make you forget the chaotic traffic (at two steps).

Enjoy!

  1. I was just there yesterday! I can’t believe I have never found it on my trips to Rome. It was late and it started pouring rain when I got there…..I will be back.
