Suburra was a vast and populous district of ancient Rome. Since the population of the lower part of the district was constituted of urban underclass which lived in miserable conditions, although overlooking a monumental area and public services, the term suburra still has, in the common language, the generic meaning of an infamous place, theater of crimes and immorality.
