Near Via Cola di Rienzo in the district of Prati there is a small, circular and rundown square known as Piazza Quiriti that has been chosen as a refuge by a number of street people. In the first half of the 20th Century the square had a fountain that was one of five erected in Rome during the 1920s to embellish the city. But this one was severely criticised for its obscene female figures, positioned right in front of the church of San Gioachhino ai Prati. The result was a flood of curious sightseers to this relatively unknown area.
