CCR Walks: Garbatella Neighborhood - April 7, 2018

Garbatella, now a hip neighborhood, has a turbulent past. At the start of the last century, when it was first built, it was populated by newly arrived immigrants to Roma Capitale and became a hotbed of dissent during the Fascist period and of leftwing anti-government opposition during the postwar years. Its distinctive architecture also marks it as one of Rome’s few urban planning experiments in popular (public) housing, inspired by “Garden City” models and 20th century modernism. During the course of the walk, we will look at the many strands of Rome’s recent history and ways in which the past has been recorded in official and non-official ways in this highly distinctive, edgy neighborhood.
