50 THE GESÙ Piazza del Gesù. 45pm. 52–53, POCKET MAP F16 The church of the Gesù was the first Jesuit church to be built in Rome, and has since served as the model for Jesuit churches everywhere – its wide single-aisled nave and short transepts edging out under a huge dome were ideal for the THE GESÙ CAMPO DE’ FIORI, THE GHETTO AND AROUND large congregations the movement wanted to draw. Today it’s still a well-patronized church, notable not only for its size (the glitzy tomb of the order’s founder, St Ignatius, is topped by a huge globe of lapis lazuli – the largest piece in existence) but also for the staggering richness of its interior.
52–53, POCKET MAP E17 Cross Via Arenula into the Ghetto and the contrast with stately Via Giulia can be felt immediately: this crumbling area of narrow, confusing switchback streets and alleys with a lingering sense of age is one of Rome’s most atmospheric. The city’s Jewish population stretches as far back as the second century BC, though nowadays a handful of kosher restaurants, butchers and the like are pretty much all that remains to mark this out from any other quarter. The Ghetto’s main artery, Via Portico d’Ottavia, leads down to the Portico d’Ottavia, a second-century BC gate, rebuilt by Augustus and dedicated to his sister in 23 BC.
