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.
