      I’m curious to know a beautiful name of a place in Rome and its origin.

      There are so many evocative names of places in Rome!
      The first one that comes to mind is “Giardino degli Aranci”, literally the “Garden of the Orange trees”, which is the common name for parco Savello, deriving from the abundant presence of these plants. It was the vegetable garden cultivated by the Dominican priests from the next basilica di Santa Sabina all’Aventino. The Crescenzi and then the Savelli families held the area comprising that garden in the Middle Ages, but starting from around the 1930s the garden became public and everybody can now enjoy the beautiful view of Rome from there.
