The history of Monti district in the centre of Rome
In Roman times the area was densely populated: the upper part of the district (from the baths of Diocletian to the Suburra) consisted of noble domus around the Vicus Patricius (today viaUrbana). The lower part revolved around via Argiletum (the name was due to the continous presence of clay and mud from simultaneous confluence of rainwater from Quirinale hills,Esquilino and Viminale) which corresponded to the current via Leonia and via Madonna dei Monti. This area called Suburra was known to be plebeian,full of brothels and taverns. Down below,in the valley between the Palatine and the Capitol,there was the Imperial Fora,separeted from the popular neighborhood through the great firebreak stone wall that still serves as architectural backdrop to the Forum of Augustus.
