Ever since Quadraro's citizens impeded the infiltration of Mussolini and the Germans into their neighborhood, their rebellious spirit has remained unflinching. The neighborhood's residents have developed a tight-knit community that prides itself on maintaining its fiercely independent and self-sufficient nature. Quadraro continues to resist external forces as everyone from real-estate developers to local authorities seeks to tame its unapologetic character and edgy undertones–the same character and undertones that make it a local favorite.See places to stay Save this neighborhood
Generations of Neighborly Ties In Quadraro
Our area is safe and well connected to the city center. Here is where the real Romans live, and it's full of cheap restaurants, bars, and every kind of shop. Our fruit market is also real, not the touristic "Campo dei Fiori" one!"

Diego Barone Lumaga
Diego Barone Lumaga lives in Naples, and works as both an IT engineer and a freelance photographer - though, he prefers the term, "photographic engineer." This collaboration with Airbnb gave him the opportunity to combine his love of travel with his photographic eye. It also led him to discover the many historical treasures of Rome, which he considers the greatest empire in history.
Kristina Gill is a food photographer, food and drinks editor at Design*Sponge, and cookbook reviewer at Mattbites. While shooting Rome she was struck by how well some Roman neighborhoods have preserved traditions and family businesses while others are in constant renewal.
