The Aventine Hill (Latin: Collis Aventinus, Italian: Colle Aventino) is one of the seven hills of Rome. During the Renaissance, it was located in the Antico District.

History

Another one of the Seven Hills of Rome upon which the ancient city was built, the Aventine was mainly a suburb during the monarchy and early Republic. In 456 BCE, a law was passed allowing plebeians to own property on the hill, causing the city to quickly grow beyond its walls. This rapid expansion made it far more vulnerable to capture by the Gauls. Only after a bloody invasion, the Senate passed a motion to build a new wall encircling the Aventine.[1]
