The evening in Rome: Concerts in Churches and Archaeological sites

During the autumn, Rome offers to locals and tourists, the beauty of the concerts in many churches!I always go listen to wonderful concerts in St. Agnese in Agone, in Piazza Navona. Tickets can be purchased at the entrance of the church and  cost 12 euros.

You can also find many concerts, held free of charge, in the churches that host International groups of Singers and Orchestras.

The last concert I attended was the performance of  Vivaldi Strings Group, at the Oratorio del Caravita, a small church in Via del Caravita, near Via del Corso.

Another very pleasant evening, always with the music, in an archaeological context of rare beauty is the Concerts of the Temple at Theatre of  MarcelloVia del Teatro di Marcello 44, till October 2, every evening from 20.30h to 22.00h.

…Priceless!

In case of bad weather Concerts will be held indoors. Ticket cost  21 euro. (18.00 euros  for the Concert  + 3.00 euros for access to the archaeological site)

Walking in Rome with the nose up ..

Rome is the seat of the Pope and of Christianity. 

And is the site of the highest number of Churches in the world, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, early Christian, Medieval, as well as Abbeys, Basilicas and Sanctuaries!

Not everyone knows that in addition to ancient pagan inscriptions, we can see on the walls in the street,

many examples of bas-reliefs and paintings with a religious theme, in particular Madonnas!

… and these images

were tasked to deter the robbers from committing delinquent acts!

so … walk the streets with the nose up !

……..see you! 🙂

FAO & Parks in Rome

The FAO, the United Nations Organization for Food and Agriculture, has launched a call for all countries to join forces to create an international partnership for the conservation of  forests. The International Year of Forests, was opened on February 2th , 2011 in New York.

In many parks in Rome you will find initiatives to approach , especially childrens, to the delicate issue of respect for nature!
