Rione (plural: rioni) is the name given to a neighbourhood in several Italian cities. A rione is just a territorial subdivision. The administrative subdivisions in Rome are the Municipi. The word derives from the Latin: regiones, the 14 subdivisions of Rome imposed by Augustus. The term has been adopted as a synonymous of quartiere in the Italian comuni.
