Il fascino di Via Margutta!

La strada divenne famosa negli anni Cinquanta e Sessanta quando nel film Vacanze Romane la splendida Audrey Hepburn visse in una elegante soffitta di uno splendido palazzo situato proprio in via Margutta. Dopo l’uscita della pellicola, presero casa in questa strada anche importanti personaggi del cinema. Tra questi ricordiamo il noto regista Federico Fellini con la moglie Giulietta Masina. E proprio in questa via c’è una targa che ricorda la celebre coppia. Nonostante siano passati tanti anni da quella che veniva cinematograficamente definita l’epoca della dolce vita, ancora oggi passeggiando in questa zona si respira un’aria particolare: un mix di spettacolo, arte e cultura. Se non siete mai stati in via Margutta, un viaggio a Roma può essere l’occasione giusta per farlo. Casa Fellini e molto altro ancora Oltre alla casa di Fellini, in via Margutta ci sono anche altri luoghi d’interesse che vale davvero la pena visitare. La celebre strada non…

Dopo 40 anni riapre il quinto anello del Colosseo!

Riaprono al pubblico il quarto e quinto livello del Colosseo dopo una chiusura durata più di quarant’anni. Il nuovo itinerario di visita potrà essere effettuato a partire dal primo novembre prossimo. Si tratta, ha spiegato il ministro dei Beni culturali e del Turismo, Dario Franceschini, di “una giornata importante che valorizza un pezzo del Colosseo, i piani più alti a 40 metri di altezza dall’arena che non erano visitabili da 40 anni. Si restituisce alla fruizione, seppure a gruppi prenotati per la difficoltà di accesso e per le condizioni di sicurezza, un altro pezzo importante del Colosseo”. Un nuovo percorso per scoprire il Colosseo e goderne la vista unica sulla città a circa 50 metri di altezza. La visita all’Anfiteatro Flavio si arricchisce di ben due livelli (il IV e il V) con l’”arrampicata” fino all’Attico il “loggione” dove un tempo sedevano —su gradinate lignee senza posti numerati— i più poveri,…

The Tarpean rock and The Capitoline Geese

The tales of the Tarpean Rock and Capitoline Geese are both imbued in history and myth. While the lowest and smallest of Rome’s seven hills, the Capitoline is perhaps the most closely bound to the city’s history given it has since antiquity always been Rome’s political and religious hub. The Capitoline Legend Legend has it that in the age of Rome’s foundation, the hill was conquered by the Sabines as a result of a Roman maiden, named Tarpeia’s betrayal. Tarpeia is said to have offered to open the city’s gates in return for gold rings and bracelets the Sabine’s wore on their arms. Tarpeia’s luck however ran out and she was in turn herself betrayed by the Sabines who, once inside, crushed her to death under the weight of their shields. This then is the legend, although in all probability Tarpeia was none other than a divinity protecting the Capitol’s oldest…

The Myth behind “la bocca della verità”

La Bocca della Verità, known in English as the Mouth of Truth, is one of the most interesting sculptures in Rome. It is a huge Pavonazzo marble image that weighs more than 2800 pounds. It’s pretty much a disc carved with a face of a man with its mouth, nostrils and eyes wide open. The Myth During ancient times, the marble disc was used as a great way of finding whether a person is telling the truth or not. It was more like a lie detector of the modern days. People who had committed or were accused of committing iniquitous acts such as adultery and perjury were being brought in front of the mammoth disc. They would be asked to take oath and have to place their hand inside the open mouth while they answer the questions of the executioner. It was believed that if a person is telling the…
