- One of Rome’s four outlying and massive neighbourhoods, North is a vast expanse immediately north of the Grand Raccordo Annulare (GRA), Rome’s ring road. In antiquity, the area was known for the famous battle of the Milvain Bridge, Constantine’s 313 AD victory leading to his control of the empire. Over recent centuries, urban development has seemingly hidden its ancient history. However, throughout the area there are Constantine-era churches, paleo-Christian catacombs and even the erroneously named Tomb of Nero, a 3rd-century patrician tomb.
North’s contemporary reputation as cultural centre can be seen in recent and award-winning architectural projects such as Zaha Hadid’s MAXXI museum, Renzo Piano’s Auditorium and Powell-Williams’ bridge Ponte della Musica. The area is further noted by the Olympic Stadium complex where Rome’s Lazio and Roma football teams vie for the Coppa d’Italia.
