Secret Rome: 3 Unmissable Things to Do Featured

No matter how many times you have been to Rome, there is always something new to explore.

L’Archivio di Monserrato

Via di Monserrato is a street with a long artisanal tradition and creative flair in the capital so it’s no surprise that Soledad Twombly chose this location for her whimsical designer’s studio, L’Archivio di Monserrato. The Argentine-born fashion designer (and daughter-in-law of American artist Cy Twombly) showcases a mix of art and textiles, antique beds, whimsical décor in her atelier – along with her collectable Sole label blouses and shirts.
