In the center of old Rome is a block of ruins and artifacts that has been taken over by the cats of Rome. Largo or Torre Argentina is now known as a cat sanctuary and is now regularly visited by folks who care for these inhabitants.

Torre Argentina is located at the intersection of Via Arenula and Corso Vittorio Emanuele.
