Where We Are
Viale del Vignola 50, villino n°18 – 00196 Roma
Casa Fabbrini Piccola Londra takes its name from the area of Rome where it is located: the Piccola Londra, just a few minutes from Piazza del Popolo.
This private street is the realization of a European urbanization dream hatched at the beginning of the XX century. A cosmopolitan and yet minute dream, just two streets, in a district called Flaminio, that at the time did not even exist yet.
The Mayor of Rome at that time, Ernesto Nathan, created a series of small English style villas, complete with outside stairways, small gardens and pastel coloured facades
He was probably inspired by his memories of London where he spent his childhood and early adolescence.
Maybe deep down in his heart he knew that the Flaminio area would become, over a century later, an artistic and cultural hub of the capital city, thanks to the Auditorium Parco della Musica designed by Renzo Piano, the MAXXI museum designed by Zaha Hadid and the upcoming Città della Scienza.
