Rome is a multi-faceted city, constantly on the lookout for novelty, so much so that it has devoted a whole neighbourhood to comic strips. We are referring to the Torrino-Mezzocammino area to the south of the EUR zone, which for several years has been naming squares and streets after Italian cartoon characters. An example is Piazza Andrea Pazienza, which is in fact a simple roundabout sunk below ground level, but made special by its containing walls, which are covered with panels depicting the most famous characters from Italian cartoons: 24 giant panels (4.2 m tall by 3.6 m wide) in photo-ceramic mosaic showing, among others, Dylan Dog, Valentina, Tex, Diabolik, Zagor, CoccoBill and Signor Bonaventura. The whole neighbourhood is involved in the comic-strip theme, from street names to entrances to the green areas, known respectively after Corto Maltese, Lupo Alberto, Pimpa the dog and many more. The play parks are equipped with slides, swings and roundabouts for the little ones, but there's also room for adults, with relaxation areas with reclining chairs and barbecues, perfect for summer picnics!
