Piazza Cavour in not in Borgo 
Ciao, Piazza Cavour is part of Prati, not of Borgo! alex2006 08:10, 8 May 2006 (UTC)
About the house of Raphael 
Excellent article, concise yet very informative. one small matter, you refer to Raphael's house in the borgo:
I think you mean Palazzo Caprini, in which case you might want to put something in the brackets like:
(who also lived here in the Palazzo Caprini/House of Raphael designed by Bramante)
or more simply
(who also lived here in the Palazzo Caprini designed by Bramante}
and make a link to "Bramante"
Ciao, buona fortuna, ottimo stile

Good Article nomination has failed 
This is a great start, but I don't feel this article is up to GA standards at this time. I think the following needs to be addressed, and then re-nominated at a later date:
- The article has undergone a lot of change very recently; I would not yet consider it a "stable" version. Please wait until the article has remained fundamentally the same for at least a few weeks.
- There are a lot of awkward phrases that need to be copyedited for professional English-language tone and grammar. For example, "Since it lied outside the Pomerium, and was plagued by the Malaria, this territory was used as burial place."
- The opening paragraph does not do a good job of introducing the topic of the article; frankly, I was lost and had to click several of the wikilinks to figure out what the article is about.
- The article is full of constructions where either an Italian word is used and then an English translation given, or vice-versa. This degrades the readability of the article quite a bit; I recommmed that Italian words are used sparingly and only when necessary as proper nouns, etc.

Page move 
Why move this page to Borgo, Lazio? As far as I can see there are no guidelines for this action at Wikipedia:Naming conventions (geographic names). Antique Rose — Drop me a line 00:34, 3 July 2010 (UTC)
- The appropriate section is for placenames in Italy, which states that all placenames should, if they need to be disambiguated, go under Placename, Region, unless there are two or more places with the same name in that region. This is the only Borgo in Lazio. Skinsmoke (talk) 01:19, 24 July 2010 (UTC)
Renaissance section needs some revision. 
In this section can be found these words; "All this came to an abrupt end on May 6, 1527, when the soldiers of Charles V entered the Leonine City and mercilessly plundered it, so starting the Sack of Rome. Clement VII barely escaped capture, running through the Passetto in his night dress and locking himself within Castel S. Angelo, while all the Swiss Guards, except those defending his escape, were killed near the obelisk." This is a very pejorative statement, that is based upon biased information and should be edited to avoid special interest words. If indeed the troops did vandalize the Vatican City, then just why did they not burn the Cathedral, and the Sistine Chapel, etc., to the ground? Or did they? Just a modest suggestion!220.127.116.11 (talk) 22:47, 31 January 2013 (UTC)Ronald L. Hughes
- if you read "The sack of Rome" of Braudel, or also the "Vita" of Cellini, you can see that there ~is no exaggeration in this sentence. Alex2006 (talk) 06:51, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
