Area Via Frattina is one of the most famous streets in Rome city centre: located in the so-called 'Tridente', it connects Via del Corso to Piazza Mignanelli, and then to Propaganda Fide palace. Via Frattina follows the path of an old Roman street used by the inhabitants of Pincio villas to go down to the city centre, and it now is home to the Spanish Embassy. Back in the ‘60s it became one of the main shopping districts in Rome together via Condotti and via Borgognona, and it was also chosen by many artists, enchanted by the quiet surroundings. Nowadays, Via Frattina is rich in ateliers and boutiques, jewelries and showrooms of important interior designers.
A popular tale is related to this neighbourhood: it is told that at the end of the XVI century a certain Pietro Curtelli kidnapped an innocent girl. He was sentenced to death, and his legs were hanged in front of the house of the girl, that was located in Via Frattina. But, as the smell was unbearable, pope Sisto V ordered them to be replaced by stone legs instead, to remind the awful consequences of threatening the virtue of young women.
