Moneyless, Struttura Over 011 (installation)
The district’s name derives from a white three-pronged lance because from Piazza del Popolo, just like a trident, it forks into three roads: Via di Ripetta, Via del Babuino and Via del Corso.
A long list of illustrious names such as the English Poets Keats and Shelley, German Author Goethe and Italian Film Director Fellini all lived in this district.
The top luxury brands have their natural home in these elegant streets and the serious shoppers, those not bothered about the number of “zeros” on price tags, may suddenly find themselves in paradise.
The star here is unquestionably Piazza di Spagnawhich daily attracts Romans and tourists alike to idly sit on its celebrated steps and enjoy the view onto Bernini’s “Barcaccia” (old barge) and the shopping streets. Literally covered with thousands of azaleas in early spring, the Spanish steps virtually assume a fairytale-like quality.
