 Trastevere - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Trastevere is rione XIII of Rome, on the west bank of the Tiber, south of Vatican City.
In fact, the only connection-point between Trastevere and the rest of the city was just a small wooden bridge called the pons sublicius (Lat., "bridge built on piles").
In the Middle Ages Trastevere had narrow, winding, irregular streets; moreover, because of the mignani (jutting foreparts on buildings' fronts) there was no space for carriages to pass.

Il problema di fondo, di una riforma strutturale del fatto pittorico, si pone con Cimabue: la sua linea si tende in curve elastiche, sensibilizza a tal segno le zone di colore che separa, da esigere il termine medio di una variazione chiaroscurale, di una permeazione luminosa.

 The Churches of Trastevere
The whole of Trastevere was enclosed in the 3rd century by a section of the Aurelianic wall (Mura Aureliane) in which were three gates: the Porta Settimiana to the north, the Porta Aurelia (now Porta di San Pancrazio) to the west and to the south the Porta Portuensis (further south than the present Porta Portese).
This population, which was nly absorbed into medieval Rome proper in the 14th century by the establishment of a thirteenth district, was especially concentrated in the northern part, the rest of the area being allocated in the main to large monastic and religious establishments.
The centre of the life of the Trastevere district was - and in some sense remains - the basilica of Santa Maria, known as "in Trastevere" to distinguish it from the many other Marian churches in Rome, of which it is supposed to be the oldest.

Di fronte a un simile scenario, non è difficile notare alcuni segni di speranza, che convivono con alcuni aspetti problematici e preoccupanti.
Anche la compresenza di diversi popoli, culture e religioni può rivelarsi come occasione propizia per tendere a una nuova unità e "convivialità" culturale, ma può pure diventare un fattore in grado di scatenare contrapposizioni, esclusioni e conflitti, fino a prospettare il rischio, da tutti verbalmente esorcizzato, di "scontri tra civiltà".

The northeast pier housed the holy column, or colonna santa, an ancient marble column that was believed to be one of the original twelve that were made for the portico of Solomon's Temple.
