This district was born between the XIX and XX centuries and is named after the street Nomentana that it grew up around. It is an area that suffered from heavy bombing in 1944 but in the post-war years underwent intense development that quickly healed its wounds. It is a mainly residential neighbourhood with its most elegant area surrounding the Via Nomentana; an old consular avenue dating back to the ancient Roman era and extending from Porta Pia to connect the capital with the outskirts. It is currently a busy commercial area offering the chance to enjoy wonderful walks. The Porta Pia was one of the main entrances set within the Aureliana walls and was commissioned by Pope Pio IV and designed by Michelangelo in 1561. It is considered one of the artists last great works before he died, and in fact he never actually saw it completed. The Michelangelo decorative features that are situated on one side of the entrance portray a large bowl, towel and bar of soap that according to legend was a joke by the artist, hinting at the humble origins of the Pope, who came from a family of Barbers. Following the Via Nomentana leads to the Villa Torlonia; a construction started in 1806 by the neoclassic architect Giuseppe Valadier. It is one of the most recent Villas of the Roman nobility and conserves all of its charm with original English-style gardens and a surprising amount of buildings and decorative features around the park, including the theatre, the Casa delle Civette (house of owls), the casino and templo de Saturno. Another important area in Nomentano is the Bologna Square that is centrally located within the neighbourhood. At the beginning of the 1900s, the surrounding areas were developed for the middle-higher bourgeoisie classes; a fact that is quite clear from the number of elegant villas. The arrival of fascism brought a profound change to the characteristic architecture and population, and saw the introduction of condominiums, an answer to the increasing number of people arriving from the south of the peninsula. The Post Office building overlooks the square and dates back to 1935. It is also the stopping point for metro Line B that leads directly to the city centre and the main stations (Termini and Tiburtina). Currently Nomentano is a residential area with numerous shops and attracts the Roman locals for its great shopping possibilities, particularly along the Via Nomentana, in the Bologna Square and the Viale delle Province.
