is a district of Rome
(part of Gianicolense
. It is located just outside the Aurelian walls
, south of the Gianicolo
and southeast of Trastevere
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.
is usually divided in two parts, Monteverde Vecchio
, a mostly 19th century neighbourhood of stately villas, and Monteverde Nuovo
, most of which consists of semi-highrises, constructed in the 20th century.
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
