Parallel to the elegant Via del Babuino runs the narrow but noteworthy Via Margutta. Here a great number of young artists, with great hopes and little money, made their names. The street is now peppered with little art galleries. The attics of the houses were and are still the studios of painters great and small. Among the characters who have lived in this street one remembers the painter Novella Parigini with her characteristic images of cats and cat-like women. The festival 100 Pittori in via Margutta (100 painters on via Margutta) takes place every year at the end of October and the beginning of November: it is a chance to admire original works of art and discover new talent.
