From the historic center you can head to Piazza Venezia, but I suggest you to make a stop at the Galleria Sciarra, in Via delle Muratte, near Via del Corso.
The building, along with the nearby Teatro Quirino, was restored in the 1800 and was commissioned by Prince Maffeo Sciarra. The gallery is white and red with the decorations of Giuseppe Cellini.
The theme of the decorations below is the woman in the role of wife, mother, educator and leading mind of the house.
In the upper band are instead represented other women who personify the feminine virtues: loyalty, humility and justice.
Virtues are represented in scenes of bourgeois life: Gardening, Conversation, Culinary skills, Musical entertainment, Exhortation to charity, Vanity, Marriage, Care of children.
Then, if you have a little peckish … I recommend a stop at ANTICA BIRRERIA PERONI– (OLD BREWERY PERONI), in Via di San Marcello 19,within walking distance…
with his “kitchen that is good for the mood” and its famous real ales.
“Chi beve birra, campa cent’anni!”- Beer drinkers, lives a hundred years!
