Quartiere Coppede

Walking distance from the Villa Borghese is the funky Quartiere Coppede. Coppede was an architect who designed and built about 40 structures in a small neighbourhood. These were built from 1910 until 1927 when he died. They are a fantastic mix of Ancient Greek, Roman Baroque, Medieval and Art Nouveau. 


Thanks to its strange beauty, the Quartiere Coppedè has been used as the setting for a number of films. Next time you see a funky building in a movie it just might be one of Coppede structures.
