A Million Dollar(Sesterzi) Baby

Women,  throughout history, have been subject to abuse, harassment, discrimination … and the journey is still long.

However, history tells us precisely than in past centuries, our ancestors have fought in search of emancipation.

English: Colosseum, Rome, August 2007

If you will come to Rome, the Colosseum will be definitely one of your goals and, admiring this masterpiece, you will try to imagine how many fights and battles were fought precisely in that arena!

Just here, even the Roman women were performing as gladiators. The women fought as gladiators men, and also competed in athletic competitions!
A famous misogyny Orator of ancient RomeGiovenale, in his satire, dated around 100 AD, made fun of women devoted to the legal profession, or who were passionate about domestic and foreign politics.

All these testimonies of the past, help us to understand that history surely teaches, but it is up to us grow in the right direction.

P.s: The SESTERZI, were one of the coins in use in the Roman Empire, around 117 AD.

A hidden restaurant in a splendid palace of the 17th century!

Okay… we want to close the Christmas Holidays, in a delightful restaurant in the center of Rome? IL GABRIELLO.

If you walk through the alleys near the Spanish Steps, and you do not know, it’s hard to see it!

From the entrance, a flight of stairs leads you in a splendid palace of the seventeenth century, where, precisely, is the restaurant!

Mediterranean cuisine, cozy, with vaulted ceilings… very traditional cuisine.

Cute address!
