Piazza Cavour in not in Borgo[edit]

Ciao, Piazza Cavour is part of Prati, not of Borgo! alex2006 08:10, 8 May 2006 (UTC)

About the house of Raphael[edit]

Dear Alessandro57

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 02:37, 13 June 2006 (UTC)

Good Article nomination has failed[edit]

The Good article nomination for Borgo (rione of Rome) has failed, for the following reason(s):

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.

Keep up the good work! Aguerriero (talk) 16:44, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

Terebinthus Neronis[edit]

Ciao Alessandro57 "..Terebinthus Neronis..tomb surrounded by a narrow tower" : don't you mean "surmounted" ? --Johndvincent 20:22, 10 July 2006 (UTC)

Yes, of course you are right! I corrected it. Thanks,

Finished Copyediting[edit]

Ciao Alex, I have finished copeditng. I really think it's a great article ! Some suggestions on your talk page.--Johndvincent 09:20, 14 July 2006 (UTC)

Page move[edit]

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 RoseDrop 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)
Hallo Skinsmoke, please see my comment on your talk page. Cheers, Alex2006 (talk) 13:21, 24 July 2010 (UTC)
Hi. Have replied. Skinsmoke (talk) 14:52, 24 July 2010 (UTC)

Renaissance section needs some revision.[edit]

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!

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)

Stufe! A Roman word?[edit]

Cannot one just look at this word and see the English or Dutch word? That WORD IS STUFF! Which equals "things" or pieces or Etc.? (talk) 03:11, 1 February 2013 (UTC)Ronald L. Hughes

Stufe, plural of stufa. The origin of the name is clearly explained in the article. Alex2006 (talk) 06:45, 1 February 2013 (UTC)
