Piazza Mincio

Published on March 28, 2018 by fromhometorome

A district within another district, Quartiere Coppedé, between Piazza Buenos Aires and via Tagliamento in the chic area of Quartiere Trieste in Rome, was built during the 1920s by the architect Gino Coppedé, after whom it was named. Famous all over the world for its unique charming and magic atmosphere, Quartiere Coppedè is one of the main example of Art Nouveau and Deco in Italy. Definitely unique it’s the mixture of different architectural styles used, Medieval, Roman Baroque and Ancient Greek style at the same time. A huge Barroque decorated archway, under which a large wrought iron chandaler hangs, leads to Piazza Mincio, where some of the most beautiful buildings face in: from the Fairy style cottage, to the Venetian palace; in the middle the amazing Fontana delle Rane (the Frog Fountain), realised in 1924 and composed of 12 marble frogs. Because of the particular atmosphere, the Italian horror movie director Dario Argento used this place as a setting for two of his visionary films, Inferno and L’uccello dalle piume di cristallo.
