  Streets of Rome

The place name of Via dei Querceti comes from the woods of oaks that in ancient times covered the Celio. Along this street, resting on a building located on the corner of Via dei Santissimi Quattro, there is a newsstand that is among the oldest extant in Rome. Probably because of its unusual position at the height of man, it became necessary a protection realized with the construction of a little chapel with roof of tiles where inside, visible through a wrought iron gate, one can glimpse a paint painted on the small apse, depicting a « Madonna enthroned with the child », perhaps dating back to the fifteenth century.
