- Streets and Squares
Streets of the district of Monti have a long and troubled history. The district is located on a hill area and during the ancient age it could be divided into a upper rich area and a lower dodgy one (called Suburra). In the later centuries, the district became an almost uninhabited area of the city: Rome city center moved to Campo Marzio and on the other side of the river and so Monti turned in an area full of little gardens and woods. From the XIX century and after the works of the fascist age, the district has lived a reborn.
Signs of this history are present and visible also in the district planning: there are larger streets on the upper area (between Viminale and Santa Maria Maggiore) and a maze of small streets and alleys in the lower area, which was uninhabited many decades ago and looks like a village-in-the-city nowadays. This is the most famous and crowded part of the district, full of shops and tourists.
Montieverywhere brings you around the most important streets of the district, with a guide which tells stories and curiosities about art and history and shows pictures of the most interesting landscapes.

Museums and exhibitions centers of Monti are some of the most important in Rome. The exhibitions they host are reference points for the whole cultural panorama of Rome.
Scuderie del Quirinale host exhibitions connected to artistic vanguards or to important artists of the past. Palazzo delle Esposizioni, the biggest interdisciplinary exhibition center of Rome city center, often hosts monographs of modern authors or photographic exhibitions.
