TESTACCIO'S AREA

Testaccio is the name of the twentieth district of Rome. The name comes from the so-called "mount" (Mons Testaceus): 35 meters of fragments of pottery (testae, in Latin), and various debris, accumulated over the centuries as remainders of the transport heading to the port of Ripa Grande (Emporium).

The Emporio port worked since Roman times, and was the landing point of goods and raw materials (primarily marble, grain, wine) that arrived by sea from the port of Ostia, went up the river on barges hauled in by buffaloes which in 1842 were replaced by steam trailers.

Over the centuries, the shards of amphorae, which were used to contain wheat and liquid foods during transport, accumulated in a hill, hence the name - ancient - of Monte Testaccio or Shards Mount (“Monte dei cocci”), and the choice - modern - of the amphora as a symbol of the district. The number of stacked jars is estimated at around 25 million. The empty jars that had contained mostly oil were broken into pieces and arranged neatly to provide stability in a stepped pyramid and sprinkled with lime to prevent odors due to decomposition of organic residues. The marbles, which gave the name to the street Marmorata that connects the port of Ripa with Porta San Paolo, were the ones the Romans continued to import from all over the Mediterranean sea till the end of the empire, and that with the decay of Rome remained unused in large quantities, “res nullius”, for centuries as open quarry of semi-finished products of value.

Until the restoration and urban redevelopment begun after 1870, which assigned this area and along the Ostiense down to the basilica of St. Paul to industrial activities and "heavy" services (railways, slaughterhouse, general markets, gas factory moved here from Circus Maximus), the area, despite being located inside the city walls, was populated by poor farmers and shepherds, subject to floods of the Tiber and infested by malaria, which was beginning at the gates of Rome.

The Lazio region

Lazio is the region of a thousand thousand landscapes and cultures, and sudden changes of the ancient human presence : a land of extremely diverse and for that far away, on the whole, from the easy labels and the banal stereotypes of modern tourism. Has always lived in the shadow of Rome, Lazio is still too little appreciated in its entirety .

Yet , in the past the Lazio received one of the highest and most noble expressions of the concept of 'journey' Rome and its surroundings were in fact the preferred destination of the Grand Tour, a cultural phenomenon of large-scale , developed from the second half of the eighteenth century until the early twentieth century, whose protagonists were artists, writers and scholars from all over Europe (and especially from France , England and Germany ) , who considered the " trip to Italy " , and the rediscovery of his wealth and artistic environment , as a key moment growth of intellectual and even spiritual . They came , so illustrious names such as Byron , Goethe, Stendhal , Gogol , Gregorovius , Lawrence and others, attracted primarily by the superb and dramatic grandeur of the ruins of the City, scattered throughout the rolling lands of the Roman Campagna , but also by the vestiges of the mysterious people Etruscan , by the beauty and climate of the Castelli Romani , from the wild scenery of the Pontine Marshes , traditions remote and legendary monuments of Ciociaria .

Even today, and despite the serious tampering by the materialistic and consumerist modern society, Lazio can reproduce in many parts of the old , dear landscapes of the Grand Tour : from inaccessible gorges, from the jungles and highlands of Tuscia to great romantic lakes of Vico , Nemi and Bolsena , from the gorges and the great forests of the Apennines to the green hills of Sabina, the lonely death at the city of megalithic acropolis ernici and Volscians .

There is also a Lazio different , fascinating and often ignored , but which do not fail to surprise the curious traveler and adventurous. A Lazio " unusual and mysterious" that will take the heart of the lover of the fantastic as decadent as the great essential. Floating islands , lakes disappear and reappear periodically , UFO sightings , footprints of saints , demons, and unbelievers , symbols, and asked the Templars, ghostly presences , lost cities and haunted castles , cyclopean walls , impressive gorges and caves arcane initiatory paths carved into the rock : are these , only some of the suggestions of the Lazio secret , that in the present work we aim to reveal to the reader. Leafing through these pages , sometimes he will meet individual monuments or places really unknown and neglected the most , in other cases, however , will find destinations already famous , described here , however, according to an unreleased cut , designed to highlight the lesser known side and more appealing , the elements less obvious and the most unique .

The guide, of course, inspired primarily by the immense wealth of myths, legends and traditions of Lazio , where every city, town , village and hamlet preserves the memories of heroic deeds and fairy tales, famous historical events , supernatural phenomena and divine apparitions . But above all, along the various routes you try to provide a key to the close ties that exist between unexpected and many of the sites " unusual and mysterious " in the region. Ties that often go to track real " hidden paths " that will not fail to seduce the reader , especially when he - we hope - will go there personally .

And it is the urge to leave the house , to observe and to know that animates the spirit of this book, in fact you want to make the player character in the rediscovery of beautiful places and of extraordinary interest , but sometimes , unfortunately , are abandoned to or degradation , waiting for a recovery and a just recognition : in a nutshell , waiting to go back to being a living witness of a pluri - millennial civilization , to be a model of the evolution of our culture and our society .

Evolution that now more than ever , passes for the development of a respectful attitude towards the environment and a deep sensitivity to beauty and vitality inherent in art, nature and the countryside . A sort of " rebirth ", therefore, that it is urgent and essential , if you do not want to lose with the signs of our past and the reasons for our future. If you want to have the opportunity to visit the Lazio region and discover all its beauties , a good idea would be to rent a holiday apartment with Oh- Rome.com , which will prove to be an ideal base for your travels .
