Did you know? The buildings that you will see on Tibererina island from Ponte Palatino are nothing more than the Fatebenefratelli hospital. In ancient times, the Tiberina Island was used as a place of quarantine during times of plague and other highly infectious diseases, all those who were infected were brought to this island so that the virus could not infect other people. For this reason it became a hospital.

According to a legend the island is boat-shaped. Virgil wrote in his Aeneid that Aeneas, at the end of the long journey started from Troy arrived in this place, later resulting in Rome. Time after time on the boat soil and debris were deposited to form the island as we see today. In Trastevere, one of the most beautiful areas of Rome, in summer you can attend the Festival de Noantri (15- 30 July).

The name means “festival of we who are living here” (Noantri) as opposed to "who lives in other districts ...". The origins of the festival are shrouded in legend. It is said that after a storm, near the mouth of the Tiber, some fishermen found a statue of the Virgin Mary, carved in cedar wood.
