Quartiere Coppedè is an unexpected and extraordinary area within the Trieste district in Rome. Its architecture mixes Ancient Greek, Medieval, Mannerist, Roman Baroque, and Art Nouveau styles. The principal inspiration is in nature, and the architect is Gino Coppedè, who worked on the quarter from 1913 until he died in 1927.
The area is peaceful and considered the city’s best vantage point. The most beautifully decored buildings are Villino delle Fate, the Palazzo del Ragno, and the Palazzo degli Ambasciatori.
The Quartiere Coppedè encompasses a building designed by architect Gino Coppedè at the beginning of the 20th century. After you pass “the Arcone,” which is the arch that connects Via Tagliamento with the center 0f the neighborhood, Piazza Mincio, you will see the beauties of uniquely designed buildings. Moreover, there is a sculpture of Coppedè himself in one of the columns. The other side of the arch transfers you into the world of the brainchild of Coppedè.
Walking along the Palazzo Degli Ambasciatori, you will see the beautiful fountain with eight stone frogs in Piazza Mincio.
The English Garden at Villa Torlonia is one of the most elegant and modern Roman villas which served as Mussolini’s residence from 1925 to 1943. Moreover, it is famous for its English garden.
Many eclectic shops and boutiques are located on Via Chiana, where you can buy various design home accessories, groceries, temporary art clothes, and many more exciting things.
Coppedè is not the Rome that guests of the city expect to see. There are 40 structures with different sizes, styles, and heights. According to the legend, Gino Coppedè received a lot of criticism for his creation and decided to commit suicide.
Before, he had been working in Genoa for a British client after acquiring a professional reputation in Milan, where the Liberty decorative style was popular by that time. However, the Rationalist architectural movement was dominant in Rome.
