Testaccio is the twentieth (XX) district of Rome, just south of the Aventine and on the left bank of the Tiber. This neighborhood is been able to maintain its original spirit which makes it lively and popular both day and during the night life of Rome.
During the day the area is experienced by its residents but also by tourists attracted by the many places of cultural interest they can find: the Piazza Santa Maria Liberatrice with his church in Romanesque style, the Monte dei cocci, hence the name "Testaccio" cames (the little hill is formed by thousands earthenware jars, "testae" in Latin, accumulated over centuries, during transport to the nearby port of Ripa Grande), the Fountain Testaccio, The Old "Mattatoio" (slaughterhouse) now used as an area for CAE (Città dell'Altra Economia) and the museum MACRO (Museo di Arte Contemporanea di Roma).
Not far from Testaccio there are other areas of the city: Ostiense, whose point of reference is the famous pyramid, near which there is also the nearest Metro B station; the district Garbatella and Trastevere, another historic part of Rome, famous for its nightlife and fine tipical cuisine.
In the heart of Testaccio, a few steps from the CAE and the MACRO, PORTA FUTURO is the innovative center for guidance, training and job search in the Province of Rome that houses the Roman edition of the EU WhereCamp, 18 - 19 January 2013.
