Additional Location Information

THE ORIGIN OF MONTI DISTRICT FROM ROMAN TIMES
In Roman times the area was densely populated: the upper part of the district (the Baths of Diocletian to Suburra) had a domus and noble named Vicus Patricius (Via Urbana today), while in the low and swampy - the slums, in fact - were living the plebeians, and the area was full of brothels and taverns of ill repute [3]. Further down in the valley between the Palatine and the Capitol, were the imperial forums.
In the Middle Ages the situation was quite different: the Roman aqueducts were damaged and it was difficult to find water because of the ground floor (it is a hilly area) and therefore the residents tended to move in the Campus Martius, flat area downstream of packages. After all the inhabitants of Rome were accustomed to drink water from the Tiber, then drinkable.
From the Middle Ages until the beginning of 1800 the district was essentially an area rich with vineyards and orchards, sparsely populated due to scarcity of water and the distance from the Vatican, the cultural center of that period. The only factor that caused the area did not become totally uninhabited was the presence of the Basilica of San Giovanni in Laterano and Santa Maria Maggiore: the continuous influx of pilgrims always guaranteed a large number of people in the area.
Always in the Middle Ages the inhabitants of mountain called monticiani, they developed their own strong identity, so much so that their Roman dialect was slightly different from that of other districts. There was a rivalry between the inhabitants of the other district with a strong identity, Trastevere, in the fourteenth century, which often resulted in bloody clashes between residents of two districts [4].
Subsequently, the urban development at the end of 1800 (Rome had just become the capital) and major demolition of the fascist period completely changed the face of the ward. In particular, between 1924 and 1936 a large portion of the lower part of the neighborhood was destroyed to build Via dei Fori Imperiali (then via Empire) and bringing to light the remains of the imperial forums.
MONTI DISTRICT TODAY
Via de’ Ciancaleoni and its Steps
The district is very large, and urban planning rather composite, ranging from areas of intensive urbanization nineteenth century (like the one between the Interior and the Quirinale, Via Nazionale with its axis, and all the buildings in Via Cavour) and even more recently (as that between Esquilino and Celio, Via Amba Aradam axis), the archaeological park area consists of the Colle Oppio - Colosseum - Ludus Magnus - Forum of Nerva - Forum and Markets of Trajan.
The building frenzy of the first forty years of the reign of fascist Italy and demolitions have spared the area of Suburra, to which tourists are very fond of the "picturesque," almost as much as that of Trastevere. Particularly appreciated from this point of view and increasingly popular in recent years, is the area between Via Nazionale and Via Cavour (Via del Boschetto, Via dei Serpenti, via Panisperna, via Baccina, via de’ Capocci e via de’ Ciancaleoni and Ciancaleoni Steps), which for the modesty of dwelling houses , narrow streets, craft shops, small shops seem to retain the characteristics of nineteenth-century Rome. The area is full of restaurants, bars and atelier of Artists and Craftsmen , gravity on the square of the Madonna dei Monti, near the church of which still serves (also) be a gathering place for local residents and occasional visitors.

WARNING

We are with the walrus.
And we would like the same for all our Guests.

Against the dissolution of Artic,
Against drilling projects to produce new oil,
That will further accelerate the dissolution of Artic Ice,
Because or we learn to live producing less pollution,
Or we do not know which kind of world we will leave to our children.

We can start doing some little but important things,
Like to use the air conditioning at 22 and not 18 degrees,
The heating at 21 and not 25 degrees,
And switch off air conditioning or heating and lights,
Every time we get out.

Let be a walrus, as Sir Paul Mc Cartney,
Let save the Artic Ice,
And we will offer you an Ice…Cream,
One of the Best in Rome

Silvia di Domus Ciancaleoni


1968. Now, that was a memorable year. People down the street, the revolution was in the air, we published the White Album, and perhaps the most memorable photograph of all time was taken by an astronaut William Anders.
It was Christmas Eve and Anders and mission commander Frank Borman space had just become the first living things, the dawn of time, to orbit the moon.
Through the portholes of their Apollo 8 spacecraft, their eyes fell on something that nobody had ever seen before, something familiar yet so alien, something that took your breath away with its beauty and fragility. "Oh my God!" Borman said, "Look at that scene over there! Here is the Earth to rise. Wow, that's wonderful! "
"You have a color film, Jim?" Anders replied dryly, "Hand me that roll of film in color, fast ..." For a minute or so, two human beings, in a can 400 thousand kilometers away from home, they struggled to put a roll of film Kodak in their camera, then lifted Anders pointing it at the door and with the click immortalized on our delicate planet that slowly rose from the horizon of the moon. The dawn of the earth. That single image had such an impact on the psyche of the man who was believed to be the spark that gave rise to the global environmental movement - fundamentally changing the way we think about ourselves on this planet.
This was more than forty years ago, a blink of an eye in the vast extension of time, but something serious has happened since then. For at least 800 thousand years, the Arctic Ocean was covered by a sheet of ice extended as a continent. But in the decades following the release of that photo, satellites have measured a steady reduction of the white blanket. Much of the ice is gone, and it seems likely that, over the life of my children, to the North Pole will be just offshore. I could see that moment myself.

Think about it. Since the rise of the Earth was captured in a photo, we were so busy warm our world that now it is so radically different from space. Digging to extract fossil fuel and burning old growth forests, we put so much carbon dioxide the astronauts of today looking at a different planet. And there's something that baffles me. As the ice retreated, the oil giants are moving to that area. Instead of considering the melting of ice as a signal of danger to humanity, have their eyes on the oil fields, previously inaccessible, in the bottom of the roof of the world. In practice, are exploiting the disappearance of the ice to extract the same fuel that is causing the problem. Fossil fuels have colonized every corner of the earth, but there comes a time and a place where you need to say "enough".

I believe that time is now and that place is the Arctic. This is the reason why I decided to support the Greenpeace campaign to create a legally protected sanctuary around the North Pole and to ban oil drilling and industrial fishing from Arctic waters. My name will be set at two million that Greenpeace is collecting signatures and that will lead to the Pole, in a sealed capsule that will be anchored on the ocean floor at 4km below the ice. All these people unite together to save the Arctic and, with it, all life on Earth.

In a single month more than a million people signed the petition on www.SaveTheArctic.org.
If you are not among them you still have a chance to make sure your name is planted in the ocean, on top of the world.
And if you, like me, you are irresistibly attracted by the wonderful Arctic wildlife, then you will want to support the mobilization by joining the online Arctic Rebellion. You can choose to be one of these five animals - a polar bear, a snowy owl, arctic fox, a walrus or narwhal. Once you have joined you in your clan animal you can hunt on the pack of new supporters for the campaign and compete with other animals to involve new people. It's like a new dawn in the world, we seek to raise a new mass movement, to draw a boundary line in the ice and say to polluters "You can not cross it."I just have to decide which animal will be ...
Yes, you guessed it ..
"I am the Walrus".

Sir Paul McCartney
