The complex is 10 minutes by car from the international airport in Fiumincino and is located between the motorway and the river Tiber, within the great ring road “GRA” which surrounds Rome. With an area of roughly 100 hectares we find the touristic recreational compound called “Parco de’ Medici” which stands out for its 27-hole golf course with a welcoming Club House.
But let’s cross the motorway again and lets follow the route of Viale Salvatore Rebecchini to arrive at the entrance of the Golf Club. This golf complex was build in 1990 by recovering a completely arid and flat area ideal to accommodate what was then foreseen to become a great seaplane port for Rome, a project never accomplished and later definitely abandoned. The recovery of this piece of land is doubtless the most important ecological environmental transformation carried out in Rome after the war. More than one million cubic metres of soil were moved, lakes created and mounts of earth were accumulated in numerous points with the aim of giving movement to the fairways and thousands of plants were planted. Including the ruins of an ancient artefact from 1st century BC, a small river landing by the Tiber which flew right behind this building during that period. In fact, the Tiber was the most important route for provisions for the city of Rome. The first port structures were build directly at the river estuary which were later transformed into two ports during the 1st and 2nd century AD: the bigger one called “of Claudius” (which is now completely covered by earth and used for the runways of Fiumicino airport) and the smaller, more architectural one in hexagonal shape called “of Traiano” is still quite visible nowadays.
