Giancarlo : “You can clearly see the corner structure which today seems to me to be a bakery and then via Nomentana towards the garden city and the future talents. Nice photo”
Andrea : “Middle school and high school were almost finished, but Viale Tirreno which would have led to Valmelania (still to be built) was not yet traced.”
Sergio : “As a boy I lived in Via Capraia and to go to school I always passed up the sacred mountain with the trolleybus 36 “
The denomination of “Piazza Sempione”, dedicated to the Sempione pass between the Pennine Alps and the Lepontine Alps in line with the local toponymy, appeared for the first time in the public session of the City Council on 16 December 1921 , which included it among the denominations waiting to be assigned in the building district of the Città Giardino Aniene. It appeared for the first time in the Toponymic Dictionary of the City of Rome in 1938.
The square was built as part of the ” Città Giardino Aniene ” project by Gustavo Giovannoni during the 1920s as the administrative and cultural center of the newborn district. In fact, it immediately housed the building complex which was the seat of the municipal delegation (subsequently of the governorate), of various shops, of a school and of the postal and telegraph offices.
