  Famous people of Rome

Romolo was born at 2:30 on Monday, April 4, 1892 on the third floor of number 8 of Via dei Chiodaroli, in the rione Sant'Eustachio (the same as Giuseppe Gioacchino Belli), a few steps from Campo de ' Fiori.  In the space of two years, the large Balzani family moved to Trastèvere. Romolo (like most of his siblings) would not attend schools, and would learn to read and write only as a soldier during The First World War. Back home he devoted himself with great passion to the song until it became the maximum name of the Roman song. He began to shoot with his troupe on tour all over Italy, requested and loved by an ever wider audience, remaining still particularly connected to his Rome. After 1954 he retired from the scenes. He died on April 24, 1962.
