Garbatella is an urban zone of Rome. It belongs to the Municipio VIII (ex-Municipio XI) of Rome comune, Italy, in the Ostiense quarter of Rome. Its population counts nearly 45,000.

Garbatella was founded on February 18th, 1920, on an estate bearing the same name, lying on a hill adjacent to the Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls. The older section of the area is divided into project units (Italian: lotto), each of them made of several buildings grouped together around a common garden, a design that was borrowed from the English Garden city movement.[1] The garden serves as an informal meeting point for all the families that live in the buildings.

The area expanded rapidly and by 1930 it had the highest population density in Rome.[2]
