Monteverde, Lazio

Monteverde is a district of Rome (part of Gianicolense quarter) Italy. It is located just outside the Aurelian walls, south of the Gianicolo and southeast of Trastevere. Monteverde means 'green mountain' and is named after the hill that the district is located on. This hill is not one of the seven hills of Rome as it is outside the classical city.


Monteverde is usually divided in two parts, Monteverde Vecchio, a mostly early 20th century neighbourhood of stately villas, and Monteverde Nuovo, most of which consists of semi-highrises, constructed in the second half of the 20th century. It has a large middle-class population.

Monteverde is a residential area outside of Rome's historical centre. The main attraction is Villa Doria Pamphili (sometimes with the final long i orthography, Pamphilj), which used to be private property of the Pamphili family, but is now a public park, the largest in Rome.

Monteverde is home to The American University of Rome as well as the American Academy in Rome and its related undergraduate program, the Intercollegiate Center for Classical Studies.

Monteverde was the main base of operations for the Proietti Clan, a criminal organization led by Franco Nicolini and the Proietti brothers, until their destruction in the early 80s at the hands of the Banda della Magliana.
