- This area is called a 'district' but it really lies within the district of Trieste. It was mostly built during the 1930s so has many square blocks of apartments that were typical of the period. It was designed by architect Gino Coppedé, after whom it was named. The street to see is Via Dora, which culminates in Piazza Mincio. Coppedé made use of floral motifs typical of Art Nouveau. Also note the balcony that unites two palazzos and which supports an enormous streetlight. The period setting and peacefulness of the area means that it is often chosen for film sets.
