The history of the thirteenth district of Trastevere , traces its roots back in the seventh century BC, when it was a land in the hands of the Etruscans “beyond the river,” this is the literal translation from the Latin Tiberim Trans.
The fact is that with time and the succession of emperors, Augustus, Aurelian, also was included in the Trastevere area of Rome, yet always remaining a marginal neighborhood, indeed, the last, the XIV. During the medieval time, Trastevere came to distinguish itself from that aspect of the village, consisting of Roman palaces and villas with very narrow lanes. The inhabitants of the district were called Trasteverini and formed a separate population, because of coming from the river. Many families chose to live in Trastevere and then out from the Urbe, greater peace of mind to breathe and live among the people they called genuine, tough and fair with women deemed beautiful.
