The apartment is situated in the Navona zone. In the Antiquity this district, bordered by Corso Vittorio Emanuele II (opened in the late 19th century), Corso del Rinascimento (1936-39) and Via Zanardelli (1906), was part of Campus Martius. Domitian (AD 81-96) built a large stadium and an Odeon where poetry readings and musical concerts were given. Except for the outline of Domitian’s Stadium which is preserved in the shape of Piazza Navona, no traces of ancient Rome have survived here.
The network of picturesque lanes and streets between Piazza Navona and the Tiber recalls the splendour of the Papal area in the heart of Renaissance Rome.
As early of the beginning of the 16th century cardinals, ambassadors, papal officials, whealty bankers and distinguished courtesans took up residence here. Around them intellectual life flourished: booksellers, engravers and miniaturists settled around the Piazza Navona and Piazza Pasquino and to this day there are still numerous craftsmen to be found in the area. The recommended walk passes many 15C and 16C palaces and also offers many pleasant surprises to the curious visitor prepared to turn into the courtyards off the main square. The rusticated facades with their plain rectangular windows and somewhat austere pediments often conceal some fine Renaissance architecture: beatiful balconies and colonnades, cornices with antique motifs, coats of arms, walls decorated with grisaille, frizies and medallions.
Some of the most important tourist places in the zone are the Area Sacra del Largo Argentina, the Pantheon and Piazza di Spagna.
