Lungotevere in Augusta
The Lungotevere is named after the Mausoleum of Augustus (in Piazza Augusto Imperatore), next to which the Ara Pacis Augustae is placed. Many churches, now missing, rose in the area, like San Biagio de Penna, Santa Marina in Augusta and San Tommaso de Vineis.
In 1959, the bronze monument dedicated to the patriot Angelo Brunetti (called Ciceruacchio) - created by Ettore Ximenes in 1907 and formerly placed in Lungotevere Arnaldo da Brescia - was hauled to the gardens between the Lungotevere and the Ripetta Promenade.
