Presented in English
This Zoom event is an introduction to Rome’s central zone, found between the Campo de Fiori and the Jewish quarter. It’s a neighborhood made up of little piazzas, old buildings and little narrow streets.
Rome is a city full of contrasts and its complex identity is perfectly represented by this neighborhood. The beautiful Renaissance buildings around the piazza of the “Campo,” visible signs of the aristocratic families of the past, are juxtaposed with the open market and the spot where heretics were burned alive during the Inquisition. Close to the Campo de Fiori, we’ll explore the Jewish quarter, today a fascinating area of the capital filled with delicious kosher restaurants. On this voyage in space and time, we’ll meet historical personalities and contemporary witnesses who will help us retrace a story that begins with the ancient Roman temples and finishes in the 20th century with the final tragic events of the Fascist regime.
