Monteverde Nuovo

Simple evenings and casual conversations are prominent in this southwestern Roman neighborhood.

Far more humble than Monteverde Vecchio, “New Green Mountain” is a businesslike residential area where the focus is on utility. Rather than exemplifying glitz and glamor, Monteverde Nuovo provides for the everyday needs of its gentle residents. In Monteverde Nuovo, the daytime means work and the evening means relaxation. As the light fades, families congregate on sidewalks and friends shrug off hectic job schedules with shared bottles of wine at streetside tables.
