Campo Marzio: a historic neighborhood in Rome lends its name to iconic jeans

Five pockets are better than four

What clothes did the Ancient Romans, headed by Caesar, choose to wear to feel comfortable during their enterprises and military training in the Campus Martius? The area, today Rome’s IV (fourth) “rione” and one of the city’s symbols, is still extremely important due to its remarkable history. Consecrated to Mars, it was dedicated in particular to military training, and legend says that right here, during a storm and an eclipse, shrouded in the clouds, talking to his troops, Romulus ascended to the gods and assumed the identity of Quirinus: hence the temple on a hill to worship him, that will become the Quirinale (now the presidential palace in Rome).


Under Caesar, buildings associated with the elections and the Villa publica were erected or restored, but is with Augustus that the area reached its utmost splendor. Fast forward to 1870, when Rome became the capital of the Regno d’Italia; numerous constructions made Campo Marzio’s appearance very close to what it looks today, an area rich in religious and civilian buildings, scattered with plenty of famous squares and the most elegant streets devoted to commerce.

It is not a coincidence that, precisely in Campo Marzio (at numbers 1/7 of the street, at number 4 of the square) Davide Cenci’s two boutiques, first opened in 1926, are located. Such a location reflects the strong attention dedicated by the brand to the Italian soul and culture, intertwining its own heritage with the city’s history: in the Junior store, dedicated to children wear, the pillars of the old temple to Mars are still preserved, symbolizing the brand’s commitment to the remarkable area it was established in.

And it is precisely to Campo Marzio that Davide Cenci has dedicated its five-pocket pants, the Campo Marzio 5: vibrant hues and lightweight textures, in three fabric variations. The first one is a linen and cotton blend in blue, light blue, green, ecru and white; the second style, in stretched cotton twill, comes in dark blue, beige and brown; the third offering, it goes without saying, comes in a stretch denim in dark or light wash. This particular denim stands out also for its lighter, comfortable weight, 8.5 ounces for the summer style, compared to the 12 ounces of the Fall/Winter edition.

The pants are matched with the 100% washed cotton bowling shirt featuring a front pocket and embellished with a blue on white palm tree motif, worn nonchalantly untucked. The outfit is rounded out by an orange cotton, cashmere and silk ribbed crewneck sweater, coolly styled over the shoulders, and by the Eric blue suede sneakers from Premiata with nylon inserts.

History and tradition can be beautiful, when revisited with that special extra twist.
