Description

The Coppedè is a well known neighborhood, much appreciated in Rome, for the particular architecture of its palaces and buildings. The district is located between Piazza Buenos Aires and Via Tagliamento, and owes its name to Gino Coppedè, the architect who designed it. The neighborhood was conceived in the early 1900s and is composed of several buildings and villas centered around Piazza Mincio. Coppedè is undoubtedly known for the large decorated arch under which you can see a beautiful wrought iron chandelier. Just beyond the arch, you'll find the Fontana delle Rane (Fountain of the Frogs), a small but beautiful fountain with sculptures of shells and…frogs! One of the most imposing buildings in this square is the famous Villini delle Fate, featuring floral and medieval images and made with a variety of materials. We suggest you also take a look at the Palazzo degli Ambasciatori (Palace of the Ambassadors) and the Palazzo del Ragno (Palace of the Spider)!
