Casal Bertone is the name of the urban area 5a of the fourth Town Hall. Extended on neighborhood Tiburtino this casale began to be populated in the late 1920s, characterized by a large hill of colli del Portonaccio, on which stood the then already known Vaccheria Bertone. The first buildings were built in 1926, as a result of a variation to the 1909 Plan which envisaged the construction of housing made by private individuals but also by State companies such as railways or Tranvieri society.

In 1944, during World War II, was impressed by Casalbertone bombing and, although there were civilian victims, suffered a lot of damage to buildings; one of them, partially collapsed, was still visible in 2006, on via Baldissera, until they began rebuilding and restoration.

With the end of the war, was completed the parish church Santa Maria Consolatrice. During preventive surveys for the construction of the TAV Roma/Napoli, in 2007, were found the remains of a fullonica (tannery) of the 2nd-3rd century, those of a guardhouse added, probably belonging to the antique via Collatina, and 5 late Republican age tombs (graves).



The neighborhood takes its name from a farmhouse at the end of the first two decades of the last century, it was known as Casale or Vaccheria Bertone, named after the owner. But there are those who argue, instead, that "bertone" derives from the name of the horse blanket, called bertone, that there were bred.
Casal Bertone was also the "theater" of two famous cinematic film: I soliti ignoti, by Mario Monicelli, in 1958; and Mamma Roma, directed by Pier Paolo Pasolini-where the great Anna Magnani goes to live with her son in an apartment of the "Palace of Railwaymen" recognizable by deer above the gate of the complex. The large arch becomes symbolically the entrance to the entire neighborhood. And you must then pass through the deposit of the Atac, the large facades of buildings that surround it, overcoming the big Auchan shopping centre and from there begins our walk capitolina in which we discover the life that teems with in this neighborhood intensively populated.

Deep in the neighborhood, we see in long perspective of large tower blocks, but when the streets begin to thicken what you lose the vista to focus the many activities that take place in the neighborhood: from fruit shops of the Arabs, the bar where everyone will give you market where everything just a few euros, the square that opens unexpectedly in front of the Church of Santa Maria Consolatrice, centerpiece of the area.

Recently, in an area of the area, during excavations for the construction of a covered market and underground car park, was found a stretch of the ancient via Collatina and of a necropolis, with numerous depositions, that funeral kits allow you to date between the 1st and 2nd century AD. a.d.
