Best entered from the corner of Via Tagliamento and Via Dora, the compact Quartiere Coppedè is a fairy-tale neighbourhood of Tuscan turrets, Liberty sculptures, Moorish arches, Gothic gargoyles, frescoed façades and palm-fringed gardens. The mind behind the madness belonged to the little-known Florentine architect, Gino Coppedè, who designed and built the quarter between 1913 and 1926.

At the heart of the district is the whimsical Fontana delle Rane , a modern take on the better known Fontana delle Tartarughe in the Jewish Ghetto.
