  Streets of Rome

Very small is this street dedicated to an Italian abbot and historian. Casalis, born in Piedmont in 1781, of humble origins and orphan of father, was welcomed as a boy at the seminary of Saluzzo for free, where he studied until priestly ordination.  In 1833 he had the idea to collect in a single work all the information on every single municipality and village of the Savoy State: an undertaking that will assume the name of « Dictionary, historical, statistical, commercial of the states of His Majesty the King of Sardinia ». The work engaged him until his death, in 1856.
