Description

Ever dreamt of going back in time? While taking your morning coffee, you will be able to admire the most famous and best-preserved building from ancient Rome right from your living room window. So, enjoy the contrast of modern and ancient from this beautifully furnished , luxurious and sophisticated one bedroom apartment. Where will you be located? You will be staying in an extraordinary street, which takes its name from the eponymous church, close to which you can admire two monolithic granite columns, discovered only in 1934 under the square of S. Luigi de’ Francesi and part of nothing less than the ancient Terme Neroniane, requested by emperor Nero in 62 AD. In addition to these two columns, two more were discovered and inserted in the vestibule of the Pantheon to replace two missing columns in 1666, and the pink granite column found in 1875 under the Salita de 'Crescenzi and placed in 1896 in front of the Breccia di Porta Pia. At number 8 you will find the 16th century Palazzo Melchiorri Aldobrandini, which later became the property of the Municipality. At the end of the 19th century they decided to have the back of the building cut off to isolate the Pantheon. Notice the archway, with leonine and pulvin adornments decorated with a horizontal stick, the Melchiorri coat of arms. CIR 6626

    La piccola Lourdes

    559.00

    A short walk from via del Corso, immersed in the festive and chaotic atmosphere of the Roman center, an epigraph marks the entrance of an elegant and simple church: it is Santa Maria in Via, home to a miraculous freshwater spring. The legend tells of a miracle that occurred here in 1256. There is a chapel with an altar inside the building in the far right corner. On this stands an image of the Madonna del Pozzo. This is a symbol of the wooden tablet that the owners of the stable that is now the church saw floating in the water of their well. This is where the chapel was built and where to date the faithful continue to drink water, which is said to have miraculous properties. The journalist will explain what extremely rare organoleptic characteristics make this water so pure, without betraying the mystical and suggestive atmosphere of this little Lourdes in the heart of Rome.

    Portico of Octavia

    Temples of San Nicola in Carcere

    Monastery of Santa Francesca Romana

    Cripta Balbi

    Palazzo Mattei di Giove


    Engraved in stone, the lion still bites the gazelle. Deep wells where sacred waters gave birth to the Chosen People. The Emperor’s deep maroon that envelops the bricks. Wells that have long since collapsed, shrouded in darkness, places where you find yourself in front of endless arcades that used to belong to Rome during the days of the Empire. Perpetually closed doors, in monastic sacredness. The myth of the empire that decorates the new principles of the Renaissance with its marbles. The Grand Palace, which lives between the upside-down Rome of the Botteghe Oscure and the marbles of the nobles of the Ghetto, whose palace looks like blocks of marble, resting on the sand.

    Centrale Montemartini

    The combination of ancient statues and busts with the technological devices of Rome’s first public electrical power plant is an exciting sight to behold. The plant ceased all activity in the early 1960s and remained out of use until 1997, when it received the loan of a number of sculptures from the Capitoline Museums. This was meant to be temporary, but instead became a permanent exhibition. It represents an extraordinary example of museum conversion, a visual pastiche that results in a very evocative effect.
