“…Rome that I Know,
It’s always inside of me,In the stormy days,And in those without wind!”
(La Roma Che Conosco – Marco Conidi)
ColosseumThe Colosseum, originally the Flavian Amphitheatre is an elliptical amphitheatre in the center of the city, the largest ever built in the Roman Empire. It is one of the greatest works of Roma architecture and Roman engineering; its construction started between 70 and 72 AD under the emperor Vespasian and was completed in 80 AD under Titus. Capable of seating 50,000 spectators, the Colosseum was used for gladiatorial contests and public spectacles.

kings of Rome even if in the 2nd century
BC Greeks influenced these festivals.
Fori ImperialiThe Imperial Fora consist of a series of monumental “fora” (public squares), built in Rome over a period of one and half centuries, between 46 BC and 113 AD. The “fora” were the heart of the late Roman Republic and of the Roman Empire.
Trastevere is one of the “rione” of Rome, on the west bank of the Tiber, south of the Vatican City. Its name comes from the Latin trans Tiberim, meaning literally "beyond the Tiber". The correct pronunciation is "tras-TEH-ve-ray", with the accent on the second syllable. Its logo is a golden head of a lion on a red background, the meaning of which is uncertain. To the north, Trastevere borders on to Borgo “rione”.
To the eastern side of the basilica is St. Peter’s Square. the architectonic structure, created between 1656 and 1667,
is the Baroque inspiration by Gian Lorenzo Bernini.

Certainly, the most famous inside of Saint Peter’s is the “Sistin
Chapel”. One of the most important paintings , the fresco on the
