The hotel where James Gandolfini died
Death Location in Rome, Lazio, Italy
This is the hotel where actor James Gandolfini died.
It is located at Piazza della Repubblica 47 in Rome, Italy.
At the time of his death, it was called the Hotel Boscolo Exedra Roma. However, it was renamed the Anantara Palazzo Naiadi in 2018.
Gandolfini was best known for portraying New Jersey mob boss Tony Soprano in HBO's crime drama The Sopranos. He also appeared in films such as The Last Castle (2001) and Enough Said (2013).
On the night of June 19th, 2013, his son Michael found him slumped over in the bathroom of room 449, which is a luxury suite on the top floor.
The 51-year-old was rushed to the Policlinico Umberto I hospital on Viale Regina Elena, where he was pronounced dead at 11 p.m.
An autopsy revealed that Gandolfini died of a heart attack due to natural causes. No drugs were found in his system.
On the day of his death, the actor visited a number of famous landmarks, such as the Vatican.
Historical weather data shows that temperatures in Rome reached 36°C (97°F) on June 19th, 2013.
If Gandolfini did have an undiagnosed heart condition, the heat would have put him at greater risk, as the heart has to work 2-4 times harder during hot weather to keep the body's core temperature at a normal level.
The actor steadily gained weight during the filming of The Sopranos, rising from 260 to 285 pounds. There were also reports that he had serious issues with alcohol and cocaine abuse.
It is likely that all of these factors contributed to the death of one of television's greatest performers.

Judging by an older image that was taken from the balcony of room 449, it seems likely that Gandolfini's suite was the 4th or 5th one from the left.
Piazza della Repubblica
The hotel overlooks the historic Fountain of the Naiads in Rome's Piazza della Repubblica.
Piazza della Repubblica connects two major roads called Viale Luigi Einaudi and Via Nazionale.
It is likely that the "Sopranos" star looked out at this fountain shortly before he suffered a heart attack.

At the time of Gandolfini's death, it was called Hotel Boscolo Exedra Roma. However, it was renamed four years later, after its parent company was purchased by the investment group Värde Partners.
The evening before his death, Gandolfini was photographed eating and drinking cocktails at Ristorante Sabatini in Piazza di Santa Maria.
The piazza is situated in the Trastevere neighborhood of Rome. It is a 15-minute walk away from the Pantheon.

This image of the bathroom in room 449 was taken by press photographer Brigitte Stelzer.
At roughly 10 p.m., Gandolfini's 14-year-old son, Michael, raised the alarm after he discovered him keeled over in the bathroom of their suite. Six men carried the actor out into a waiting ambulance.
The photo on the left was snapped the evening before his death.
Policlinico Umberto I
The ambulance arrived at Policlinico Umberto I on Viale Regina Elena at 10.40 p.m.
Unfortunately, the medical team at the hospital was unable to resuscitate the 51-year-old, and he was pronounced dead shortly afterwards.
The hospital is roughly 2.5 kilometers away from the Anantara Palazzo Naiadi hotel. It would have taken the ambulance roughly 8–12 minutes to drive between the two locations, depending on traffic.
Judging by the timeline and distance involved, it seems as though the emergency services responded to the 118 call as quickly as they could.
