We are located in the center of Rome in the district of San Lorenzo which takeits name from the nearby basilica di San Lorenzo outside the walls.
The urbanization of the area dates back to the period between 1884 and 1888, when rome experienced a great urban development following its unification to the Kingdom of Itay and become the capital city. Before this date, a substantially agricultural landscape extended beyond the aurelian alls, so much so that the basilica of San Lorenzo was defined "out of th walls", with reference to the Aurelian walls. The purpose of its construction was the construction of housing for the workers who arrived in Rome at the end of the nineteenth centuryfor the urban development of the cty between the two centuries.
The first inhabitnats were in fact railwaymen, workers and artisans. Hence the popular nature of the district, which is reflected in the particulat types of buildings. The first public document refering to San Lorenzo district can be found in the resolution of 1 July 1887 concerning the toponomy of Rome with the additon of new streets and quares of the post unification.
The Discrict is also known because the first "Children's House" in the world was established here y Maria Montessor. In 1909 it entered into the town plan of the municipallity of Rome. It was the only District in which an attempt to stop the March on Rome was made, so much that the fame of "red district" was born from there along with other historic districs of Rome, such as Testaccio.
On the July 19, 1943, in the middle of World War II, San Lorenzo was hit by the Allied bobing of Rome, with the aim of attacing the freight yard .. still active today.
