Villa Glori


Address: Viale Pilsudski, Rome, IT
Website: None

Villa Glori may be smaller than Villa Borghese, to its south, but it has a rich history of its own. Formerly known as Remembrance Park, it was dedicated to the victims of World War I, and then to all Roman war victims. There is also a 3rd century mausoleum, and a contemporary sculpture garden featuring works by Paolo Canevari, Eliseo Mattiacci, and others. “I go with my children and my dog, Tina,” Sabina Rizza says. The park’s pines provide welcome shade in the summer, though kids hardly notice the heat on account of the pony rides!
