A bit of fairy tale in Rome!

As soon as time will grant a truce, I recommend a visit to this fabulous area of ​​Rome: the Quartiere Coppedè.

English: Quartiere Coppedè in Rome

Named after the architect who designed it in 1913, seems straight out of a storybook ….

Every street is filled with a strong Art Nouveau, with Gothic, Medieval, Renaissance, Baroque variations…

A very special combination of patterns that make the facades of the houses very impressive, redundant with decorations.

Among all, the Villino of the Fairies, only the name suggeststhe incredible stylistic expression of the facade!

Believe me, this neighborhood is like a bit of  fairy tale in Rome!
