Via Condotti Rome: History
Via Condotti was, even during the Ancient Roman era, the street which started from the ancient Via Flaminia allowing people coming from the other side of the Tiber river to get to the Pincio hill, where Lucillo had his villa. In 1500 it was called Via Trinitatis, named after the church which was located at the end of the street. The buildings started to be built between 1500 and 1600, and the modern atmosphere of the street, as we know it today, began with the building of the Spanish Steps in 1700. For lovers of poetry the Keats-Shelley House is located in Piazza Spagna just to the right of the Spanish Steps at the end of Via Condotti.
