Testaccio is distinguished from other quarters of Rome, having maintained over time the familiar flavor typical of the city.


The name comes from the so-called “the mountain” (Mons Testaceus): 35 meters of various fragments and debris, accumulated over the centuries as a relic of the jobs that were headed to the port of Ripa Grande.


It’s his double “soul” to make Testaccio unique: on the one hand Piazza Testaccio is the commercial heart of the district, thanks to the large market, Piazza Santa Maria on the other hand, the heart “social” of the district where stands the church of Santa Maria Liberator and Vittoria Theatre.
