A street that goes from Via del Quirinale towards the Aurelian Walls was the final scene of the Risorgimento when on this day in 1870 the infantry corps of Bersaglieri, commanded by General Raffaele Cardona, entered Rome. The Via Pia (named after Porta Pia) was renamed to Via XX Settembre and today a major street with the same name exists in almost every city in Italy.

Via XX Settembre is a 1 kilometre long street connecting Porta Pia to Quattro Fontane in Rome. The street is named after fall of Rome as a Papal state into the newly formed kingdom of Italy back in 20 September 1870.

In some ways, this is just a busy street in Rome. However, there are some nice things to see along Via XX Settembre, including the interesting Quattro Fontane arrangement of four fountains situated at respective corners of the street intersection found here. At the opposite end of the street you can see the Porta Pia gate and landmark.

The most interesting area to visit along Via XX Settembre is probably Piazza San Barnardo. Here you can visit a few churches including San Bernardo alle Terme, Church of Santa Susanna as well as Santa Maria della Vittoria, which a Baroque masterpiece where you can find Bernini's Ecstasy of St. Teresa sculpture in the Cornaro Chapel.

The Moses Fountain then rounds off a nice little visit to this piazza on Via XX Settembre. These are the interesting things you can see along Via XX Settembre if interested in sightseeing in this area of the city.

Tip: If you want hidden gem pizza and gelato stops, there are two excellent options in Pinsere Roma, just one block off Via XX Settembre and and Gelateria La Romana located directly on the street. These are well worth looking up and visiting if you like high-quality, unique pizza and gelato experiences.

This is a long and interesting street with numerous attractions. There is the dramatic junction of Via Barberini and Via di Santa Susanna, faced with 2 impressive buildings. Tthe monumental Dell'Aqua Felice fountain also known as the Fountain of Moses, dominates its immediate surrounds. It commemorates the end point of the Acqua Felice aqueduct that Pope Sixtus V restored.

The outstanding interest on the Via is undoubtedly the sumptuous Santa Maria della Vittoria with the glorious Bernini creation of St Teresa.

San Bernardo Alle Terme Church is another wonderful building. It is reminiscent of the Pantheon, with its circular shape and dome, albeit much smaller scale. The interior is very attractive.

Numerous monumental government ministry buildings line the street, including the Ministry of Agriculture & Forestry.

Within a few minutes of the Moses Fountain on Via XX Settembre, which is itself worth a look, you'll find a must-see church, Santa Maria Della Vittoria, with the Cornaro Chapel, which holds Bernini's sculptural masterpiece, the Ecstasy of Saint Teresa. Really an emotive, bold artistic installation, so characteristic of the Baroque period. Also nearby is Santa Susanna, another church well worth seeing, although it was closed due to restoration when I visited.
