Far more humble than Monteverde Vecchio, “New Green Mountain” is a businesslike residential area where the focus is on utility. Rather than exemplifying glitz and glamor, Monteverde Nuovo provides for the everyday needs of its gentle residents. In Monteverde Nuovo, the daytime means work and the evening means relaxation. As the light fades, families congregate on sidewalks and friends shrug off hectic job schedules with shared bottles of wine at streetside tables.See places to stay Save this neighbourhood

Diego Barone Lumaga
Diego Barone Lumaga lives in Naples, and works as both an IT engineer and a freelance photographer - though, he prefers the term, "photographic engineer." This collaboration with Airbnb gave him the opportunity to combine his love of travel with his photographic eye. It also led him to discover the many historical treasures of Rome, which he considers the greatest empire in history.
Kristina Gill is a food photographer, food and drinks editor at Design*Sponge, and cookbook reviewer at Mattbites. While shooting Rome she was struck by how well some Roman neighbourhoods have preserved traditions and family businesses while others are in constant renewal.
