Built in 1920 as a village, long misunderstood and underestimated, today Garbatella has recovered all that attention once denied.
It is one of the trendiest neighborhoods, more on a human scale and more coveted: the redemption of an area that is still authentically popular and full of surprises.
Garbatella was officially born on February 18, 1920: the first stone was laid by King Vittorio Emanuele III in what is now Piazza Benedetto Brin.
Architecturally, the primary inspiration of the new district was the concept of the English garden city, albeit revisited: a complex of single-family houses with internal courtyards and plots of agricultural land.
The logic is that of the lot, which is the real protagonist of the urban planning of the district: the historical part of the Garbatella developed and built in the first years of life around 62 lots.
What is striking is the variety of styles of the different buildings of the historical Garbatella , among which the "Roman baroque" stands out, visible in many buildings in the district, a style that became typical of popular housing in those years.
From an architectural and urban point of view, the final result at Garbatella has become a real "subject of study" by architects and urban planners from all over the world.
Among the things to see in Garbatella you can find Piazza Bededetto Brin.
The focal point of the square is the Art Nouveau building which has an entrance arch in the central area, through which you can discover the first lots built, with a country flavor surrounded by land, gardens and small courtyards.
