The outside scenes are mostly set in the popular neighborhood of Garbatella, one of the most beautiful districts of Rome. Built in the twenty-year fascist period, it was conceived as the ideal district, a garden city of social houses. In fact, there are no large buildings in this area, only small villas and colorful houses immersed in an oasis of peace. You can reach it easily through Metro line B, by getting off at the Garbatella stop.
Aside from those scenes filmed in the Garbatella district, other scenes were filmed at the Pigneto, the Prenestino, San Saba, and other areas of Rome.
Here is a list of locations that will guide you along the footsteps of “I Cesaroni”
THE SCHOOL ATTENDED BY ALICE AND RUDI
The Ugo Foscolo high school is actually the Cesare Battisti primary school, built during Mussolini’s reign in the 1930s. You can find it in Piazza Damiano Sauli. 1
THE BAR OF THE CESARONI
The wine shop, the bar of the Cesaroni, managed by the friendly Claudio Amendola, is located in Piazza Giovanni da Triora, 6, at the entrance of Roma Club Garbatella, one of the most famous bars of Rome.
This has become a tourist destination both for fans of the most-viewed Italian TV series and for people who come to visit it out of pure curiosity.
Next to the bar of the Cesaroni there is a beautiful stairway, which is actually located in Via Giovanni da Montecorvino. In the TV series, the stairway leads to the house of the Cesaroni (however, the inside is filmed in Cinecittà).
THE BAR WHERE THE GUYS MEET
You can find the bar in Piazza Sant’Eurosia, one of Garbatella’s iconic areas.
THE HOUSE OF THE CESARONI
The house is actually located in the Prenestino district, in Via di Villa Serventi, between Via Casilina and Via Straboni, the street with the garage of Max Tortora interpreted by Ezio Masett.
THE FOOTBALL FIELD
The football field is in Via Gordiani, 191, in the Prenesto district. This is actually the training field of Cisco Collatinus.
The “Mo’mo’ Republic” is the beautiful bar where Alex works. A trendy spot in Rome, it’s located in Piazza Carlo Forlanini, 10, behind the hospital of the same name in the Portuense district.
