NASCITA ED EVOLUZIONE DI UNA BORGATA NELLA PERIFERIA EST DI ROMA: 
IL QUARTIERE DI SETTECAMINI

Francesca Pajno

 

This paper aims at outlining the history of the modern district called “Settecamini”, in the suburbs of east- ern Rome. This district was born at the beginning of the XX century, as a consequence of some new laws on the reclamation works needed in the lands around Rome. The discovery of a collection of unpublished documents preserved in the Archivio Centrale dello Stato in Rome, together with the reference to other unpublished documents preserved in other historical archives of the city, allows us to retrace the history of the development of the district in detail. The paper focuses on the reasons for the creation of the district and on the choices made to establish its location, to shed a new light on the roots of this suburb. With the same purpose, a particular attention is also given to a fascist building constructed in the area between 1931 and 1932.
