Corso del Rinascimento

"Corso del Rinascimento" submitted by RomeTour Editorial Team and last updated on Friday 10th June 2011

This ample street was laid out on the site of two rows of houses demolished specially for it, and was open to traffic in 1938. The buildings reconstructed on both sides of the street, under direction of Arnaldo Foschini, and the facade of the Convent and Chiesa di S.Giacomo degli Spagnoli represent a modern character of architecture that intended to reproduce the look of past centuries.

Corso del Rinascimento, Rome
The name of the street derives from the zone in which it is located, so called "quartiere barocco" (baroque district), built and rebuilt in the 15th-17th centuries by popes humanists and the best artists and architects of Renaissance (it. Rinascimento). But unfortunately the aspect of Corso is far from ideals of the period after which it was named, and was criticized a lot by Romans.

Corso Rinascimento, facing Palazzo Madama - the Italian Senate, which lies between Piazza Navona and the Pantheon. Its position makes it ideal for reaching on foot in minutes not only these but practically all the main points of historical and artistic interest in the capital. To the West: St Peter’s Cathedral and the Vatican, Castel Sant’Angelo; to the East: Piazza Venezia, Campidoglio (Town Hall), the Foro Romano, and the Colosseo. A short walk will bring you to Campo de’ Fiori – a picturesque, colorful, fruit & veg market during the day which, after the sun goes down, becomes a formidable meeting place for young and old alike, with its various wine bars and excellent restaurants to suit all pockets.
