- OSTIA ANTICA ARCHAEOLOGICAL PARK
The archaeological area of Ostia Antica, the Imperial Ports of Claudius and Trajan and the Necropolis of Isola Sacra represent the main cultural attractions of the Tiberland Project and the entire area is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Ostia owes its existence to its closeness to the river Tiber and its mouth (ostium = mouth) where the first Roman settlement was founded. A decisive role therefore in view of the many cultural routes involved for which discounted admission is being sought for the "Friends of the Tiber". A special entrance to the excavations is also envisaged on the side facing the river, which can be reached by boat from the Marconi Bridge.
- MUNICIPALITY OF FORMELLO
The municipality of Formello is not directly located on the Tiber, but is located in an area that has always had strong ties with the river. In fact, it hosts the Agro Veientano Museum, which, since its opening in 1992, has focused on the archaeology and history of the Veio area. This Etruscan city had a strong maritime vocation, tied to trade by means of navigation on the river which formed a link with the Tyrrhenian Sea. As part of the Tiberland Project, the Municipality of Formello promotes the enhancement of the cultural and natural heritage that links Rome to Veio and Veio to the sea, following the course of the Tiber.
- MUNICIPALITY OF FIANO ROMANO
This town, located on the Via Tiberina just 36 km from the capital, is surrounded by a hilly area and a vast plain on the right bank of the Tiber. The medieval village, accessible through Porta Capena, was built for defensive purposes and still dominates the Tiber Valley. A few kilometres from the village, on the Via Tiberina towards Rome, are two exceptional archaeological sites: the Lucus Feroniae and the Volusii Saturnini Villa.
An area of great value that deserves being promoted for its historical, cultural, environmental and food and wine heritage.
- ROME’S MUNICIPALITY I
Rome’s Municipality I represents the very heart of the city, the historic centre which has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1980. An urban area consisting of 22 quarters enclosed within the Aurelian Walls, to the left of the Tiber, and the Janiculum Walls, to the right of the river. An area that hosts an immense treasure of sites and testimonies of environmental, historical, cultural, archaeological and architectural interest.
The government of the Municipality is at the forefront in positioning destination Tiber and in planning the best welcome for visitors, including by facilitating the organisation of activities and events.
- ROME’S MUNICIPALITY II
One of the Capital’s greenest Municipalities, it encompasses a number of large parks such as Villa Ada, Villa Torlonia and Villa Borghese and also major cultural institutions including foreign cultural institutes and university departments and faculties, as well as the historical and elegant Parioli, Trieste and Pinciano quarters.
It also includes the Flaminio area, with the presence of two major contemporary architecture projects, the Parco della Musica Auditorium and the MAXXI, fervent centres of cultural production at international level. It is around these assets, close to the Tiber, that the Municipality's involvement in the Tiberland Project will be developed, along with its role as a facilitator with regard to the red tape required for administrative authorisations for events and meetings.
- MUNICIPALITY OF MORLUPO
The most ancient part of Morlupo, located north of Rome, is the Mazzocca district, developed on an upland overlooking the Tiber river and where, in Roman times, stood the 'statio Ad Vigesimum', a marker of the 20th mile of the ancient Via Flaminia. Its historical origins date back to the age of the Capenates, an Italic population that prospered in Lazio before the advent of Rome and whose territory stretched along the right bank of the Tiber. An area rich in cultural and natural values which, thanks to the strength of the territorial network created by the Tiberland Project, can be enhanced and promoted in order to attract ever larger numbers of tourists.
- MUNICIPALITY OF MAGLIANO ROMANO
On a cliff overlooking the Nocchia Valley, where the first “station” of the Via Flaminia was located, stands Magliano. Like other municipalities in the area, its origins date back to Etruscan times when Veio extended its dominion over this area. Then came the Roman conquest, and later, in the Middle Ages, the Benedictine monks. Art, history and ancient traditions that deserve to be promoted and passed on, including thanks to the initiatives of the Tiberland Project whereby the Municipality aims to improve the links between Park entities and synergy as regards the care and promotion of the trails to be covered on foot, by bicycle or on horseback.
- MUNICIPALITY OF CAPENA
Between the Via Flaminia and the Via Tiberina, Capena is located in the heart of the Tiber Valley. In the town centre, the 'Paraterra' area has preserved its medieval architecture and fabric of narrow, winding alleyways. The area around 'La Rocca', on the other hand, dates back to the Renaissance period and is a pleasant daily meeting place for locals and tourists alike; at various times of the year, however, it becomes an exceptional location for cultural, artistic and musical events. With a rich programme of initiatives linked to the local area but with a gaze open to the world, the Municipality and the associations adhere to the Tiberland Project with a varied and constantly updated offer.
- MUNICIPALITY OF SACROFANO
Amidst tuff houses and almost untouched volcanic natural landscapes, Sacrofano combines history, culture and nature. This characteristic ancient town is home to fine buildings and churches and, throughout the year, comes alive with festivals and popular events which represent occasions to renew ancient practices and traditions.
Immersed in the Monte Musino forest, the town is home to the headquarters of the Veio Park, an exceptional green area focused on a truly sustainable series of leisure initiatives thanks to an intricate network of paths and cycle-pedestrian routes, suitable for adults and children alike.
- MUNICIPALITY OF RIGNANO FLAMINIO
Situated in the Tiber Valley and protected by Mount Soratte, Rignano has always enjoyed a strategic position that can still be appreciated today. The town can be easily reached from Rome or from the motorway. In the narrow streets and squares, elegant buildings and the ruins of the ancient Rocca (Fortress) stand out. Still visible are parts of the original paving of the ancient Via Flaminia, which passed right through the town.
A place of discreet charm abounding in peace and quiet and delicious local cuisine.
- ROME’S MUNICIPALITY XV
A heterogeneous territory forming a connection between the city centre and the surrounding countryside and which includes historical urban areas, such as the well-known Ponte Milvio (Milvian Bridge) and the Foro Italico facilities, as well as the Roman countryside extending between the Via Cassia and the Via Flaminia. In modern times the expansion of the city has resulted in the creation of the residential districts of Olgiata, Giustiniana and La Storta, which border on areas that are still rural, such as Osteria Nuova and the medieval village of Cesano.
The last stage of the Via Francigena makes it possible to reach St. Peter's from La Storta station, but there are many slow routes to be experienced in every season, inside and outside the city
ROME’S MUNICIPALITY XI
Entered the Tiberland network with a Collaboration Agreement in May 2023, the Town Hall is the gateway to Rome from Fiumicino International Airport and the Port of Civitavecchia. Characterized by great naturalistic and cultural wealth, it includes seven districts: Marconi, Portuense, Magliana, Trullo, Corviale, Ponte Galeria.
Immersed in the Agro Romano, it is crossed by the River Tiber, which marks its natural municipal boundary, and along whose banks two river parks have been created.
Among the most important monuments are the ancient Roman roads, via Campana and via Portuense, the Catacombs of Generosa, the Castello della Magliana, the necropolis of Vigna Pia and Pozzo Pantaleo, the extraordinary medieval church of Santa Passera.
_ Sites of naturalistic and cultural interest
Church of Santa Passera: a small jewel of medieval architecture immersed in a suggestive natural context that also fascinated Pasolini who shot some scenes of the film 'Uccellacci birds' here. Developed on three levels that distinguish the historical phases, it houses a cycle of frescoes and many stories to discover, starting from the origin of the curious name
Catacombs of Generosa: located along the ancient Via Campana, it is linked to the cult of the Christian martyrs Simplicio, Faustino and Beatrice, victims of persecution under Diocletian in 303 AD. C. Eighty years later, with Pope Damasus, a basilica was erected in memory of all the martyrs buried. The visits are carried out on the basis of a scheduled calendar and managed by the Generosa Catacombs Committee.
Corviale: an original residential complex built in the 1970s by a group of architects led by Mario Fiorentino, it is called the 'Serpentone' due to its length of almost a kilometre. Consisting of three main buildings, entirely in reinforced concrete, it houses around 4,500 people and is currently the subject of an extensive renovation and redevelopment project
Parco Tevere Marconi and Magliana: two river areas of great naturalistic interest in the heart of the city: Parco Tevere Magliana, with an extension of 120,000 square meters, and Parco Tevere Marconi, for three and a half hectares, are the ideal places for a walk or by bicycle, along the banks of the river and away from traffic. Currently, other street furniture interventions are being carried out to complete the area's valorisation work.
Nuova Fiera di Roma: exhibition and multifunctional center of the Capital, located on via Portuense, between Rome and the 'Leonardo da Vinci' airport in Fiumicino. Made on a project by the Arch. Tommaso Valle, covers an area of almost 400,000 square meters and hosts major events, conferences and international exhibitions. The variety of spaces, 13 meeting rooms with up to 1,000 seats, make it an always active center of initiatives ranging from food to fashion and up to technology and innovation.
Street art at the Trullo: the historic hamlet of the Trullo, located in the Tiber Valley, south-west area of Rome, built under the fascist regime to house the displaced people from the historic center following the demolitions, is today a 'romantic suburb', thanks to the work done over the years by a group of artist inhabitants, the 'Poets and Anonymous Painters of the Trullo'.
Along the streets of the district, where Gianni Rodari taught in the 1960s primary school, among popular architecture, streets and squares, there is an explosion of colours, art and poetry: a gallery of murals that follow one another, with styles and different dimensions, with the combination of images and verses, giving voice to the stories, dreams and emotions of those who were born and live in the neighborhood.
_ Natural reserves
The town hall hosts in its territory two Regional Nature Reserves, managed by Roma Natura: the Valle dei Casali Reserve and the Tenuta dei Massimi Reserve.
Valle dei Casali Reserve: it develops like a green wedge between Villa Pamphili and the Tiber river, enclosing a plateau 80 meters high in the center where the complex system of villas and farmhouses and the presence of large pasture areas is still clearly visible.
Tenuta dei Massimi: extends in the westernmost part of the city, through the districts of Corviale, Trullo and Pisana, and holds one of the most natural and rich in biodiversity territories included in the Grande Raccordo Anulare.
Drugstore Museum e Circuito Necropoli Portuense: a surprising museum space for a journey through over 5,000 years of history.
The itinerary includes the funerary monuments of the Necropolis Portuense and Vigna Pia and a stretch of the ancient via Campana, combined through functional spaces and a modern layout where the many precious finds from different eras found in the area are exhibited.
The space is not only a museum but also a meeting place and social promotion of the neighborhood with a rich program of meetings, conferences and cultural events.
