  Streets of Rome

Surely extravagant is the name of the street between Piazza Nicosia and Via di Ripetta, so there seems to be a double explanation, this time of the language type. In fact, according to some the term derives from the roman dialect eccosa », or « limacciosa », because, given the proximity to the Tiber, the area was very prone to floods that often left the road in question full of mud; others believe that Lecco is a corruption from the Greek city of Leukosis (Nicosia), whose archbishop, Aldobrandino Orsini, held the property of the palace overlooking the nearby Piazza Nicosia.
