Aventine Hill

The Aventine Hill is one of the seven hills that ancient Rome was built on.

During Fascism, many deputies of the opposition retired on this hill after the murder of Giacomo Matteotti[?], here ending - by the so-called "Aventinian secession" - their presence at the Parliament and consequently their political activity.

The hill is now an elegant residential part of Rome with a wealth of architectural interest.
