HORTI 14 is located in a hidden corner of the historic center of Rome, in the Trastevere district at Via di San Francesco di Sales 14.
The structure borders the entire southern side with the Botanical Garden of Rome, a 12-acre park that gives it an exclusive location in the green and silence of nature, despite its central location in the city.
HORTI 14 is located at the base of the Gianicolo Hill, 328 feet from the Tiber River, Palazzo Corsini, and Villa Farnesina, and 1.640 feet from Piazza San Pietro, Piazza Farnese, and the lively Piazza Trilussa.
In Roman Imperial age, these lands on the right bank of the Tiber were used as horti by the emperors and the most prominent families of Rome and were therefore cultivated as gardens and rest residences (Horti di Cesare, Horti di Nerone, Horti di Agrippina, Horti di Settimio Severo, etc.)
In particular, the land on which HORTI 14 stands, during the reign of Settimio Severo, was donated by the emperor to his son Geta, who was also Emperor of Rome for a short time, from whom it took the name of “Horti di Geta”.
