Monti is Rome’s trendy shining star with a plethora of quaint shops and artisanal boutiques popping up constantly in this buzzing neighborhood. With its tiny winding streets and experimental locals, it’s a great area to explore small boutiques and independent clothing shops that express the artistry of Rome’s young designers, fashionistas and business-owners. The shops are mainly concentrated on Via dei Serpenti, Via del Boschetto and Via Urbana and are surrounded by plenty of creative eateries and cute bars to round out a perfect shopping day.
Le Gallinelle takes its sweet name, ‘the hens,’ from the old poultry shop that used to operate in this space. The sartorial boutique was founded in Rome in 1989 by designer Wilma Silvestri, who has a passion for experimentation and sophisticated beauty, combined with a desire to imbue her clothes with cultural references. The cuts and fabrics are original, at once trendy and timeless, and change seasonally. Pair them with vintage accessories that are sold in the store for a complete look.
