The Viale delle Belle Arti is in Valle Giulia. It starts in the square of the same name and ends in Largo Picasso inside Villa Borghese, having crossed several small squares. The area has a lot of open land and is the setting for institutes, academies, cultural centers, embassies and important museums, in particular the Museo Etrusco di Villa Giulia at the start of the avenue, and the Palazzo delle Belle Arti (Museum of Fine Arts). Also known as the National Gallery of Modern Art, it is home to the English Academy and is the main center of the Faculty of Architecture. The road became famous following student protests in 1968 when the university buildings were occupied. This particular complex was occupied by one of the most radical of the student groups.
