AreaLocated on the southern slopes of Monte Mario, the Balduina (139 mt) is the highest point of Rome. It is an elegant residential district, outside the city center but with a great deal of charm: here you find many shops, supermarkets, bars and restaurants, banks and pharmacies.
In Balduina, several streets are dedicated to those who were killed during the war and thus awarded gold medals of military valour (‘medaglie d’oro’), as Via and Piazza delle Medaglie d’Oro. For example, Orlando de Tommaso, who the apartment street is named after, was the captain of the Carabinieri (Italian police force) died the day after the armistice of 1943, while leading his men in a vain attempt to stop the German attack on Rome.
