NEW TESTACCIO MARKET BUILDED OVER ANCIENT ROMAN MAGAZINES (HORREA), THE WHOLESALE MARKET (EMPORIUM), AN ARTIFICIAL HILL COMPOSED BY HISTORICAL TRASH ( HUNDERTS OF AMPHORAE FRAGMENTS CALLED TESTAE), CONTEMPORAREY ART IN THE OLD SLAUGHTERHOUSE, ALL THESE DIFFERENT LAYERS FORMES THE IDENTITY OF TESTACCIO AND ARE THE REASON OF HIS RICHNESS

Our 3 stars Hotel is an ideal choose for all who want to discover  a different side of Rome, a place off the tourist path, Rome’s finest hidden treasures and secret pleasures and life an authentic roman experience. It’s part of the recently constructed new Testaccio Market, a modern, geometric and minimalistic shiny building opposite the MACRO museum. The market is one of the highlights of the area, a jewel on the gastronomic map. Here you are in the heart of Testaccio. The symbols that formed it’s character surround you.

Important roman commercial place recent archeological works under the market discovered an extended network of magazines (Horrea), builded with emptied  amphorae and reused piling. During the centuries, the same fragments of the amphorae (then used as containers for the handling of liquid foods), were clumped until they created the still-existing hill of shards: the ancient name of Mons Testaceum (“Hill of Shards”) derived from it.  Now you can see it on the left side of the new market. The number of stacked-up amphorae is esteemed to be about 25 millions, the hill is 35 mt high and 1,50 km large. It seems that it was cheaper and faster to destroy the amphorae, than to clean them. The warehouses were connected to the Emporium,  the river port of the ancient Rome, that rose approximately between the Aventine Hill and the Rione Testaccio. Here there was the docking place of the wares and raw materials (especially marbles, wheat, wine, oil); they reached the harbor of Ostia by sea and went up the river on barges pulled by buffaloes (towpath). Now there are few visible stretches, bricked in the wall of Lungotevere Testaccio: a quay 500 meters (1,600 ft) long and 90 meters (300 ft) deep, with steps and ramps toward the river.

The recent archeological works confirm the evolution of the area from an important commercial point, to a landscape neighborhood of Rome in the middle age and Renaissance. But at least it becomes again a commercial area in the 19 century. Testaccio is now the district  of the working class, a pregnant identity conserved in part till today. The building that is now the Museum of Contemporary Art Macro, a place that no art lover should miss, was in the past the slaughterhouse. Testaccio’s present and more importantly future is looking quite prosperous.
