It is a beautiful Roman square, not very large, surrounded by beautiful original buildings, of Piedmontese style. After being at the center of numerous reconstruction and restoration works for many years, it is slowly returning to be the beautiful square it must have been previously. The Vittorio Emanuele Metro station is only 100 meters away and via Merulana can be reached in two minutes on foot. It can definitely be called 'the little heart' of the Esquilin neighborhood. In the center there is a small garden, with specimens of cycas, yuccas and carob trees, in addition to the few residual trees of the pre-existing vegetation. The garden has also been closed and neglected but there are signs of a newfound awakening. It is a fairly quiet area also because it is guarded by the nearby police offices and also convenient for its proximity to Piazza Vittorio, the Esquilino Market and some quality medical services. It is located in a residential area but for some time now cafes, wine bars, restaurants and shops have sprung up all around. All in all, we find her very cute and inspiring.

Piazza dante is a spot with a bit of history behind it, but unfortunately it all counts for nothing these days. The best bit about it is that the gardens of the piazza have been now dedicated to two migrants who died in a fire nearby, in 2007. The whole piazza, however, is not worth visiting. We passed by there a few times, as we stayed in a hotel further up, opposite Piazza Vittorio Emanuele II. Piazza Dante was named in honour of the great Master, but even he would be horrified at the present sorry state of the place.

We are renting a apartment close by and me and my wife decided to walk there. We were instantly set off by the smell of urine all around and empty and broken alcohol bottles lying around. We found two homeless people sleeping on a bed mattress just inside the park so this seems like their permanent residence. Another two homeless guys kept on bugging us for money but we could not understand a word they said. Please avoid this general area.

Sorry for writing something bad about something in Rome- considered the most beautiful city in the world - but here it´s necessary. Could say forget about it. It´s not worth visiting. Really. There are some interminable construction works going on (the locals say it´s for the secret service). In the center there was supposed to be a small green space but it´s abbondend to itself and some mixed-up persons. Really not worth visiting.
