Piazza di Porta San Giovanni
It was located next to Porta San Giovanni and was originally a small gate without towers that allowed passing through the Aurelian Walls to reach Via Asinara, and further on Via Tuscolana. The name seems to come from the Asinii family that owned properties in the surroundings or perhaps is due to the fact that many donkeys (asini) passed through it carrying goods.
