Roman Elegies II (First Version)

Ask now, whoever you wish, you can’t reach me,

Lovely Ladies, and you, fine Men of the World!

Did Werther really live? Was it really like that?

Which town can truly claim Lotte as resident?

Ah, how often I’ve cursed those foolish pages,

That showed my youthful sufferings to everyone!

If Werther had been my brother, and I’d killed him,

His sad ghost could hardly have persecuted me more.

So Malbrouk persecuted the British traveller

From Paris to Leghorn, then from Leghorn to Rome,

Then down to Naples, and if he’d sailed to Madras

There too the harbour would have been filled with the song.

Luckily I’ve escaped! She’s barely heard of Lotte

Or Werther, or knows the name of this man of hers.

She sees in him a free, and vigorous stranger,

Who lives among mountains and snow, in a wooden house.

  • Piazza Barberini square – Fontana del Tritone or Triton Fountain (1642–3) sculpted by Bernini – Baroque Rome – and Hotel Bernini

 Piazza Barberini - Bernini - fontana - Rome PALAZZO BARBERINI The rise of the Barberini, one of the most powerful of the Roman papal families, is closely connected to the ecclesiastical career of Cardinal Maffeo Barberini, the fiarure Pope, who was elected with the name Urban VIII in 1623. The family’s prestige in the papal city was from that moment secured and culminated in the construcrion in the grand style of the palazzo, which was to become one of the most admired in Rome at the time. Some of the main artists of the age were involved in the building and decoration of the prestigious residence: Carlo Maderno, Gian Lorenzo Bernini and Francesco Borromini sought to outdo each other in a contest of elegance. as did Pietro da Cortona and Andrea Sacchi in their paintings for the palazzo.

Everything, from the architecture to the magnificence of the frescoes and interior Furnishings had to reflect the authority and affluence of the line which had chosen this way of leaving an indelible mark on the heart of the city. In 1629, the year in which Maderno died, the palazzo had however only just been begun, so the building was then entrusted to Gian Lorenzo Bernini. the ofi‘icial artiSI par excellence of the Barberinian court. He saw the construction through, collaborating at first with Francesco Borromini, in whose hands, according to Baldinucci, Maderno had left «the entire care of the palazzo» and who, Still in the words of the biographer did «all the designs for the said building». One of the most elaborate residences of Baroque Rome, and a refined theatre for the sumptuous feaSts organised by the family, grew from the meeting ofthese three masters. For inStance, on the evening of the 28 February 1656, the Cavallerizza courtyard, on the North side of the building and now part of Via Barberini, was host to a marvellous entertainment given in honour of Cristina of Sweden: a colourful merry-go—round with an elegant parade of carriages and ephemeral displays devised by Giovan Francesco Grimaldi, the family scenographer, and a Fesrive throng.

 

Piazza Navona - RomaThanks to its original elongated form. Piazza Navona deserves a foremost place among Rome’s numerous hiStorical piazzas. Built on the site of the former Domitian Stadium, it traditionally accommodated the market and popular shows. During the 17th century it became the city’s salon, partly because of the presence of Palazzo Pamphilj, and it was embellished with further monuments and buildings. These enhance the spatial homogeneity which is owed to the regularity of the architecrural features packed into the unbroken ranks of walls and facades, and to the chromatic unity.

 A result of the urban plans For the piazza under the patronage of Innocent X Pamphilj, who was responsible For the complete reorganisation ofthc area and the demolition of some blocks, was the concave facade of Sant’Agnese. The work of Borromini, it merges with the walls surrounding the piazza, copying the essential arehitecrural morifs and presenting an emblematic example of dynamic integration between the building and the space in front of it, which acts as an cxrension to the church and seems to disappear into it. In the l yout of the piazza, a role of no lesser importance is played by the three fountains which serve to break up the huge horizontal space into four distinct areas. The focus is the symbolic and actual centre of the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi (Fountain of the Four Rivers), the work of Gian Lorenw Bernini. It is a spectacular allegory of the worldly presrige of the Pamphilj: an aerial «natural grotto». The four springs of faraway rivers spout from it and it is studded with exoric plants and animals. It acts as a base for the Egyptian obelisk crowned with a clove. the symbol of the Pamphin and the Holy Spirit.

  • Fontana di Trevi – The Trevi fountain 1629 designed by Italian architect Nicola The aqueduct served the hot Baths of Agrippa, and Rome, for over four hundred years. Salvi and completed by Pietro Bracci

     Trevi fountain - Rome private toursThe Fontana di Trevi, a happy and successful marriage of classicism and baroque, was planned as an exhibition of the Acqua Vergine by Nicola Salvi under the patronage of Clement XII. Pope Urban VIII Barberini had already instructed Gian Lorenzo Bernini to «transform» the piazza and the fountain. but the project was never carried out. Set along one side of Palazzo Poli, the Fountain, which was made by Nicola Salvi between 1732 and 1763, represents an original and imaginative fusion, in the Berninian Style, of architecture, sculpture and the natural elements which contribute to the Fountain’s unique character. The theme of the sculpture is the sea. The design is dominated by a charior in the form of a shell in which the great statue of Neptune by Pietro Bracci stands, flanked in the side niches by Health and Plenty, the works of Filippo Della Valle. The charior is pulled by marine horses. who are in turn preceded by tritons. The marine divinities are placed on rocks of irregular blocks of travertine. The fountain sprawls below the facade of the palazzo behind it, which is in rigidly classicising Style, based on the triumphal arch model, with further sculptures in niches as well as in the attic storey and an elegant balustrade. The surrounding houses crowd round the splendid monument, giving the impression of an amphitheatre, while the noise of the fountain’s water can be heard From the maze of surrounding streets up to the moment when the snow-white scene appears miraculously before the astonished eyes of the visitor.

 The inhabitants of Rome must have appreciated the building of the big amphitheatre in the centre of the valley, which had previously been the site of the artificial lake made for Nero. The Judaic war, which had ended in 70 AD with the destruction of the temple of Jerusalem, provided the boory and the manpower needed for the consrruction of the building. It was Vespasian’s son, Titus, who inaugurated the amphitheatre in 80 AD, with a memorable gala and games lasring 100 days. The Flavian Amphitheatre was superior in dimensions and monumentaliry to all those previously built. It was 52 m high, like the northern side near the Via dei Fori lmperiali, which is still intaCt. The whole of the external wall was faced with marble slabs and decorated with statues in the arcades, and bronze shields hung From the attic storey windows. The organisation of the internal seating was Strictly governed by the laws eStablished by Augustus, through which spectators were seated according to their social class. The Colosseum was furnished with a sophisricated system of drains which fed the baths and numerous fountains required to keep the vast audience cool. In the amphitheatre there were various kinds of entertainment: fights between pairs of gladiators, hunts involving wild and exotic animals, naval battles and capital punishment executions by exposure to wild beasts, which were also suffered by Christians during periods of persecution.

    The Pantheon is stituated in the Roman Regio (quarter) 1X, corresponding to Campus Martins. According to legend, Campus Martins used to belong to the Tarquins and was a marshy area. When the last Etruscan king was expelled from Rome in 509 BC, the year the Republic was founded, the area became public. Augustus began filling the central area of Campus Martins with monuments and rebuilding the buildings in the Circus Flaminius area. The temple — dedicated to all the gods — was intended to be a symbol of the Emperor Augustus and therefore of his family, the gens Iulia.

Augustus began filling the central area of Campus Martins with monuments and rebuilding the buildings in the Circus Flaminius area. The temple — dedicated to all the gods — was intended to be a symbol of the Emperor Augustus and therefore of his family, the gens Iulia. The Pantheon owes its current appearance to the restrueturing conducted by Hadrian between 118 and 125 AD. This maintained the blueprint of the previous construCtion. except where the level of the base was raised and the width of the pronaos reduced to eight columns. The inscription on the architrave referring to the building of the temple by Agrippa was retained by Hadrian, who never had his name inscribed on any of the monuments he built, with the exception of Traian’s temple. A second inscription in smaller letters records the restoration by Septimius Severus and Caracalla in 202 AD. In 609 AD the Byzantine Emperor Foca gave the Pantheon to Pope Boniface 1V, and the temple was changed into the Chiesa di Santa Maria ad Martyres. A flight of steps led up to a large portico with eight monolithic granite columns with white marble capitals and bases. Two more rows of four columns formed the three aisles. The monumental bronze door is probably original. although it has been restored many times. The dome is the largeSt one built prior to the 20th century; it measures 43.30 metres in diameter and was built using a huge wooden framework. The use of layers of concrete alternated with tufa and pumice served to lessen the weight ofthe huge structure. The height of the temple from the floor to the top of the dome is equal to the diameter of the latter, meaning that a sphere could fit into the interior, so that there is a perfect balance in the building’s proportions. On the inside the dome is adorned with five rows of cofl‘ering which were probably originally decorated with gilded bronze elements.

    The Roman aristocratic families had built their sumptuous dwellings here, near the two thermal centres. The crypt of Santa Sabina bears the traces of  their hermitages or little fraternal  community, which was given hospitality in the house of a Roman matron, Sabina, who had been converted to Christianity by her slave Serafia and who was subsequently decapitated during the Empire ofVespasiano. Later, in the Early Middle Ages, the Aventine was selecred by monks and the religious as the seat of their hermitages or little Fraternal communities. In this context, from the fifth century onwards, one of the most imposing Palm-Christian basilicas of the city sprang up. The fourth century floor of the Former domus is all that remains ofit, and it can be viewed through a grating near the entrance to the basilica, but many pieces ofwalling lie beneath the right aisle. The basilica was built in the fifth century and dedicated to San Domenico in 1222. Some restoration work was carried out in the 15th century, but it was the alterations by Domenico Fontana in 1587, at the time of Sixtus V, and Francesco Borromini in 1643, which would change the interior of the basilical complex fundamentally. Domenico Fontana demolished the trim/a cantorum, the conostrm’: and the riborium, introducing the main altar and large baldacchino.

  • Colonna Traiana – Trajan’s Column – Roman triumphal column that commemorates Roman emperor Trajan’s victory in the Dacian Wars. It was probably constructed under the supervision of the architect Apollodorus of Damascus at the order of the Roman Senate.
    Colonna Traiana - Rome individual exursions Colonna Traiana - Rome guided excursionThe column decorated with historical scenes is a form of monument particular to Rome, and was introduced for the first rime in Trajan’s forum by the architect Apollodorus of Damascus. who was in charge of the whole pro jcct. The reliefs carved on the column arc presented in sequence, winding round the shaft up to the top, as a narrative tale, in celebration of the feats and triumphs of the Emperor. The column was dedicated to Trajan in 113 AD by the Senate and the people of Rome, in the forum bearing the same name. The height of the monument (about 40 m) matches the one on the hill. which was dismantled when the complex of the Markets and the Forum was built, as the inscription on the base of the column states. The top of the monument was crowned with a bronze statue of Trajan which has not survived; it was replaced by one of Saint Peter in 1588. The base is in the form  of an altar similar to the funerarv altars of the Republican Age, and it served as a tomb for the Emperor; Trajan’s ashes were kept in a gold urn placed in the burial chamber inside the base of the column. Here there is a hail leading to a spiral staircase made of marble, with 1 85 steps leading from the base to the top of the monument. Termed a cochlite column, like that of Marcus Aurelius, due to the presence of a spiral within the shaft, it was conceived by Trajan’s architect. Apollodorus of Damascus. On the outside, the long spiral frieze recounts the two Dacian campaigns with a figure of Victory writing on a shield separating them, but no attempt to create a link between them. The crossing of the Danube by the Roman army on a bridge of boats marks the beginning of the wars, and there follow battles, sieges, the setting up of encampments, the placing of troops and the submission of the indigenous chiefs to the Emperor.

    Mercati Traiani – Rome private tour

    The huge architecrural complex of the forum and Trajan’s Markets was until late antiquity considered the most famous of Rome’s wonders. The impressive projecr was attributed to Apollodorus of Damascus, a Syrian architecr. who worked mainly under the Emperor Trajan, in the F: rst half of the second century AD. This architect, one of the few artisrs of whom records survive, Fused and reworked the Fundamental principles of Hellenistic and Roman architecture. The Markets, which were designed at the same time as Trajan’s forum, are set on the slopes of the Quirinale. with a series of superimposed terraces. The removal of part of the hill, to a height equivalent to that of Trajan’s column, had made space for the creation of a piazza (square) in the grand style. The complex, which was designed for commercial and storage use, is articulated on dilTerent levels, and its facade consisrs of a large exea’ra (curving wall), which includes the Forum’s eastern side, with eleven tabernae (booths) facing it.

 

  • Campidoglio hill – Piazza del Campidoglio and Michelangelo square- It was the citadel (equivalent of the ancient Greek acropolis) of the earliest Romans.

    Campidoglio - Rome private tours
    Campidoglio – Rome private tours

    The Piazza del Campidoglio, with the long flight of steps leading up to it, is both the political and physical heart of the city. Is was designed in its monumental setting by Michelangelo in 1536, under the patronage of Paul III Farnese. It arguably represents the most perfect translation of the concept of the piazza as an autonomous urban space in 16th century culture. Ina masterly reinterpretation of the classic concept of the piazza, Michelangelo reversed the outlook, which had until then been oriented towards the Roman Forum, placing the statue of Marcus Aurelius in the middle to face Saint Peter’s Basilica. As background, he devised the complete rebuilding of the medieval Palazzo Senatorio, which rose above the ruins of the former Tabularium, and the side wings, made up of the Palazzo dei Conservatori and the Palazzo Nuovo.

  • The latter were completed according to she artist’s plans respectively in 1568 and 1655. Uprooted and set obliquely, they endue,/ the piazza with a greater sense of space, and enhance the per4pective and theatricality. The geometric star design oldie paving, which was implemented in 1940 by Antonio Munoz based on the plans left by Buonarroti, also emphasises the centrifugal, dynamic dimension of the whole. The robust and imposing plasticity of the architecture adds to the sober stateliness of this area. The façade of Palazzo Senatorio eras adapted from the Michelangelesque plan by Giacomo Della Porta and Girolamo Rainaldi, with its entrance facing the piazza, characteristic double flights of steps, stucco facing and row of gigantic Corinthian pilaster strips. The balustrade looking out over the city, with its monumental Dioscuri, was also conceived to complement the piazza, and was modified by Della Porta in 1585.

The fountain in front of the two temples, called Fountain of the Tritons, released by Carlo Bizzaccheri. Besides the church, dating back to the late Middle Ages, the square houses the Arcus Argentariorum, the Arch of Janus, the Temple of Hercules Victor and the Temple of Portunus, a deity related to the ancient river harbour.

    Built on the top of the Gianicolo, the tempietto (little temple) was commissioned by the King of Spain to consecrate the place in which, according to medieval tradition, Saint Peter, the martyr, founder of the Christian Church and flat pope, had been crucified. The young architeCt Bramante conceived it as a genuine martyrium in antique style. with a central plan and a circle of perimeter columns. The building must have been placed in a large square, which, however. was never built. In spite of the reduced size, the space has been planned in grandiose, monumental Style. It is evidently based on the study of the rules of harmony of the Roman Vitruvius, who advised the use of the Doric order of columns for buildings dedicated to masculine divinitics or mythological figures famous for their sum and courage. The architeCt Bramante did in Fact use the Doric order for the tempietto. giving it an air of rigour and economy, which is also due to limited use of excessive decoration and the sober harmony of the volumes.

In 1498 Cardinal Bilhe’res de Lagraulas. Abbot of San Dionigi and Ambassador of Charles VIII. gave Buonarroti the commission for the very famous sculptural group, which was to be placed in the chapel of Santa Petronilla in the ancient Basilica of Saint Peter. The same patron asked the artiSt to follow a northern iconographic model of the Virgin holding the body of her son in her arms after the deposition from the cross. As opposed to the composition of the German original, frozen in an unnatural scheme. Michelangelo. however, preferred to create an image of extreme naturalness, with soft, fluid lines. It is the only work signed by him, on the sash which crosses the Virgin’s breasr. The signature, according to Vasari, indicated the pride of the artist in his achievement. The lyrical intensity of the work. the refined smoothness of the marble and the plasticity of the forms all contribute to make it a work of perfect equilibrium. The absorbed expression on the face of Mary reveals her withheld grief; the body of Jesus. surrendered in exhaustion to the immense pain it has borne, brings the holy scene into the dimension of humanity; the fineness of the garments, the monumental composition and the perfecrion of the Features and anatomy endow the scene with a divine aura and timelessness. Perhaps it was this «absolute» beauty which led to the famous episode so frequently mentioned since, when, on Whit Sunday, May 21 1972. a madman attacked the group with a hammer, entailing a lengthy period of restoration to repair the damage and fill the holes.

Palazzo Colonna Roma - Rome private guide
Palazzo Colonna Roma – Rome private guide

Palazzo Colonna is one of the oldest and largest private palaces of Rome. Its construction began in the fourteenth century by the Colonna family, who still resides there since eight centuries. The Colonna family dates back to the twelfth century and comes from the town of Colonna, near Rome, from which it takes its name. The construction of the various wings of Palazzo Colonna lasted for five centuries. This has led to the overlapping of different architectural styles, interiors and exteriors, which characterize and reflect the different periods. From 1300 to 1500 it acted as a family fortress. Oddone Colonna, elected Pope on November 11, 1417 under the name of Martin V, appointed the Palace as the Pontifical Seat and lived there from 1420 to 1431, the year of his death. In those ten years, within the austere rooms of Palazzo Colonna,

Pope Martin V designed and implemented a great plan for a cultural, urban and administrative rebirth of the city of Rome, which lay in devastating conditions after the period of papal exile to Avignon and the Western Schism. In 1527, during the sack of Rome by the troops of Emperor Charles V, Palazzo Colonna was one of the few buildings that was not destroyed due to the good relationship of the family with the Empire. Instead, it offered a safe haven for more than three thousand Roman citizens. Throughout the 1600s, the Palace took the form of a large Baroque palace at the will of three generations; the leading family members being Philip I, Cardinal Girolamo I and Lorenzo Onofrio, who relied on architects and artists of great skill and reputation. In fact, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Antonio del Grande, Carlo Fontana, Paolo Schor, and many others, all lent their expertise. Also during this time was the construction of the beautiful and majestic Galleria Colonna, which has 76 meters of length facing onto via IV Novembre. This authentic jewel of the Roman Baroque is now open to the public, with apartments of major artistic value that are most representative of the Palace.  Atruejewel of Roman the Baroque, the Galleria Colonna was commissioned in the mid 1600s by Cardinal Girolamo I Colonna and his nephew Lorenzo Onofrio Colonna. It was inaugurated by Lorenzo Onofrio’s son, Philip II, in 1700. The original project is by the architect Antonio del Grande; it was then integrated by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Paolo Schor and Carlo Fontana in the last decade of the 1600s. From the very beginning, the Gallery was conceived as a large boardroom, which was to celebrate the victory of the Christian fleet over the Turks at the Battle of Lepanto in 1571. The commander of the Papal fleet, Marcantonio II Colonna, is depicted numerous times throughout the vault of the Great Hall of the Gallery and in the Room of the Battle Column. The fresco on the vault above the Room of the Battle Column is by Giuseppe Chiari and depicts the presentatiou of Marcantonio to the Virgin Mary in heaven. The room takes its name from the column of red marble on a pedestal in the center of the room, which recalls the family coat of arms. Its inlays have reminiscent scenes of ancient Roman life.

Influenced by Gaudí’s Parc Güell in Barcelona, and Parco dei Mostri in Bomarzo, as well as Palais Idéal by Ferdinand Cheval, and Watts Towers by Simon Rodia, Saint Phalle decided that she wanted to make something similar; a monumental sculpture park created by a woman. In 1979, she acquired some land in Garavicchio, Tuscany, about 100 km north-west of Rome along the coast. Niki de Saint Phalle has created a large number of “Nanas” in her career with different materials, in different shapes and dimensions. The garden, called Giardino dei Tarocchi in Italian, contains sculptures of the symbols found on Tarot cards. The garden took many years, and a considerable sum of money, to complete. It opened in 1998, after nearly 20 years of work. Her main benefactor of the period was the Agnelli family. This original exclusive excursion in the Tarot Garden – Capalbio

Tour with private guide  Gallery Borghese – Rome

рим-барокко-турAmong the various museums located in the Villa Borghese complex, the most important is undoubtedly Galleria Borghese, situated in the Casino nobile (lodge) of the 17th century villa built for cardinal Scipione, where the important collection of painting and sculpture gathered during the 17th century, later integrated by acquisitions of the 18th and 19th centuries, is exhibited. Today the itinerary through the gallery includes eight rooms on the ground floor as well as the great entrance hall and the chapel, with statues in the center of the rooms, surrounded by the paintings on the walls and the decorations of the ceilings, which conStituted the thematic thread of the 18th century layout as well. In the entrance hall late Roman Statues line the walls, while the Roman statue of Marco Curzio, restored by Pietro Bernini, occupies the back wall. Canova’s Pauline Bonaparte as Venus Vic’trix may be admired in the hall known as del Vaso (of the vase).

Villa Borghese lake – Private tour in Rome

The room of the Sun (dd Sole) houses painting and sculpture such as Bernini’s David, a painting by BattiStello, and two controversial Still-lifes, attributed to Caravaggio by Zeri. Six of the twelve paintings by Caravaggio owned  by Scipione hand in the room of Silenus (del Silena). The upper storey of the gallery, with thirteen additional rooms, focuses principally on paintings, exhibited in chronological order and by schools. Thus it is possible to retrace the principal phases of Italian and Flemish painting between the fifteenth and 18th centuries, including many absolute masterpieces (Antonello da Messina, Raphael, Titian, Correggio, Guido Reni, Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Rubens, Pietro da Cortona). In addition to Galleria Borghese, the villa also houses the refined Cam Museo (home museum) of the sculptor Pietro Canonica, in the 17th century construction by Gallinaro, known as the Fortezzuola (little fort) after it was transformed to a medieval style by the Asprucci’s in 1793. The Museo Carlo Bi/otti, opened q ite recently. is housed in the ex-Orangerie of the villa. known as Casino dei Giocbi d’Acqua (Fountains) during the 18th century. These rooms house the collection donated by the museums namesake, an halo-American entrepreneur and internationally known collector, including at numerous nucleus of paintings and sculptures by Giorgio de Chirico, Andy Warhol, Gino Severini and Giacomo Manzu.

 

TITIAN, SACRED AND PROFANE LOVE

GALLERIA BORGHESE TOUR WITH PRIVATE GUIDE

Amore Sacro e Amore Profano - TIZIANO
SACRED AND PROFANE LOVE – TITIAN – Rome Gallery Borghese indiviual tour

The work was painted by Titian in 1514, when he was 25 years old, for the wedding between Nicolo Aurelio, the Venetian Secretary of the Council of Ten, whose coat of arms is represented on the sarcophagus and Laura Bagamtto. daughter of the judge, from Padova. A fountain decorated with has relief like an antique sarcophagus fills the long side of the canvas, dividing the painting into two parts. Another caesura is caused by the branches behind the cherub who is Stirring the water with his arm. T he background is also unusual: on one side there is a church and a flock of sheep, and on the other a fortified city and two rabbits, symbols of love and fertility. Critics have long discussed the marked contrasr between the two female figures seated on the edge of the fountain, a contrast which had an illustrious precedent. In Fact Pliny recounts that the Greek sculptor Praxiteles had made two sublime Statues of Venus, one clothed and one without clothes. The two equally perfect women symbolise on the one hand «brief earthly happiness», with the attribute of the pct of jewels, and the other «eternal heavenly happiness», holding the burning flame of God’s love in her hand. The dressed Venus should therefore probably be interpreted as the pure bride who, close to Love, is assisted by the goddess Aphrodite in person. The gesture of the cherub stirring the water, source of life, in a sarcophagus. therefore probably represents love as intermediary between heaven and earth. The title is the result of a late 18th century interpretation based on a moralistic reading of the clothed figure. The universal fame of Titian’s work was confirmed in 1899, when Rothschilds the bankers offered a greater price For this painting than the estimated worth of the whole ofVilla Borghese including the works of art.

CARAVAGGIO, DAVID WITH THE HEAD OF GOLIATH

GALLERIA BORGHESE INDIVIDUAL TOUR

A three-quarters view of David is presented, emerging From behind a dark curtain, sword in hand and proudly intent on observing the head of Goliath, still bleeding after the decapitation.

davide e golia caravaggio - Borghese gallery tour
Davide and Golia – Caravaggio – Borghese Gallery individual tour

Although the head of the giant is already severed, it is Still strongly expressive. The emotive sensitivity expressed on the wrinkled Forehead. in the mouth opened in the final breath, and in the intense, suffering glance of Goliath, is also felt in the flesh of the torso and the expression on the face of David. The brown trousers and torn shirt which he is wearing contain passages of great pictorial synthesis, involving the use of long, separate brushstrokes and the juxtaposition, in the case of the shirt, of pure whites and greys, in a subtle play of transparency. Caravaggio used his own self-portrait for the head of Goliath, while in the David the features of  his «little Caravaggio» are reproduced. A recent hypothesis suggests that the David is a youthful portrait of the artist, which would make the painting a double self—portrait. With conflicring feelings of disgust and pity, with one hand David brandishes his sword, on whose blade are letters which are not easy to decipher, but which may form the morto «Humilitas Occidit Superbiam»; the biblical hero is in fact a model of virtue. If one accepts the hypothesis that Scipione Borghese had commissioned Caravaggio for the work, it probably belongs to the last Roman period and would therefore be from before 1606. However, some scholars attribute the simplification of forms, the essential quality of the composition and the rapid application of brushstrokes to a later period. In this case the painting may be interpreted as a gift, sent by the attiSt to Cardinal Scipione Borghese in the expecration of being granted grace, as the lasr attempt at drawing attention to the desperation of his circumstances and his wish to return to Rome.

VILLA BORGHESE

Individual tours in Rome with private guide
villa borghese map
VILLA BORGHESE MAP

In 1605, Cardinal Scipione Borghese, nephew of Pope Paul V and patron of Bernini, began turning this former vineyard into the most extensive gardens built in Rome since Antiquity. The vineyard’s site is identified with the gardens of Lucullus, the most famous in the late Roman republic. In the 19th century much of the garden’s former formality was remade as a landscape garden in the English taste (illustration, right). The Villa Borghese gardens were long informally open, but were bought by the commune of Rome and given to the public in 1903. The large landscape park in the English taste contains several villas. The Spanish Steps lead up to this park, and there is another entrance at the Porte del Popolo by Piazza del Popolo. The Pincio (the Pincian Hill of ancient Rome), in the south part of the park, offers one of the greatest views over Rome.

A balustrade (dating from the early seventeenth century) from the gardens, was taken to England in the late 19th century, and installed in the grounds of Cliveden House, a mansion in Buckinghamshire, in 1896. The Piazza di Siena, located in the villa, hosted the equestrian dressage, individual jumping, and the jumping part of the eventing competition for the 1960 Summer Olympics. In 2004, a species of Italian snail was discovered, still living on the balustrade after more than 100 years in England.

Today the Galleria Borghese is housed in the Villa Borghese itself. The garden Casino Borghese, built on a rise above the Villa by the architect Giovanni Vasanzio, was set up by Camillo Borghese to contain sculptures by Bernini from the Borghese collection, including his David and his Daphne, and paintings by Titian, Raphael and Caravaggio.
The Villa Giulia adjoining the Villa Borghese gardens was built in 1551 – 1555 as a summer residence for Pope Julius III; now it contains the Etruscan Museum (Museo Etrusco).

The Villa Medici houses the French Academy in Rome, and the Fortezzuola a Gothic garden structure that houses a collection memorializing the academic modern sculptor Pietro Canonica. In the 1650s, Diego Velázquez painted several depictions of this Villa’s garden casino festively illuminated at night. Before electricity, such torchlit illuminations carried an excitement hard to conceive today.
Other villas scattered through the Villa Borghese gardens are remains of a world exposition in Rome in 1911.
The Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna located in its grounds has a collection of 19th- and 20th-century paintings emphasizing Italian artists.
Architecturally the most notable of the 1911 exposition pavilions is the English pavilion designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens (who later designed New Delhi), now housing the British School at Rome.

The villa’s gardens feature in one of Respighi’s Pini di Roma

The Maremma — the coastal plain that runs south from the Piombino headland — was the northern heartland of the Etruscans, whose drainage and irrigation canals turned it into an area of huge agricultural potential. Their good work, however, was largely lost under the Romans, who abandoned much of the land and left it to revert to marsh — a decline that continued through the Middle Ages, when war and further dereliction turned the region into a malarial swamp. For years, virtually the only inhabitants were migrant charcoal burners and shepherds (who in summer abandoned the infested lowlands for the hill-villages of Amiata — and the famous butteri, the cowboys who tend the region’s oxen and horses. Modern attempts to revive the Maremma were started in 1828 by Grand Duke Leopoldo of Tuscany, who …. Maremma tuscany excursion

  • The two Roman lakes 30 km south of Rome

Along the trail that today retraces the ancient Sacred Way that connected the Appian Way to Monte Cavo, there is a place commonly known as the tocchialones: It is a natural terrace leaning towards the south and the only point of the Castelli Romani where it is possible to admire Lake Albano and Lake –  excursions around Rome by Rusrim.com

Nemi at the same time. From here, the waters reflecting the sun within the surrounding circular brim of the ancient volcanic craters, remind us of a large pair of spectacles.

Lago di Albano
Lago di Albano

It is also called the Lake of Castel Gandolfo as the waters reflect the town where the Papal residence is located. With a depth of 170 metres, it holds the record for Italian volcanic lakes and is a destination for water sports lovers with particular interest to rowing, sailing and diving. Along the perimeter of the low banks, approximately 10 kilometres, you can often find roadrunners training.

It is not only for sport that Lake Albano is frequented. Its charming landscape, rich vegetation and archaeological and historical-artistic evidence make it a pleasant and interesting spot for relaxation and educational walks.

A new boat service introduced by the Regional Natural Park of the Castelli Romani will take visitors to sail along the so-called Sentiero dellAcqua, letting them approach in a new, easy and involving way the environmental and historical-archaeological themes of Lake Albano. Further information is available on the Internet website of the Regional Natural Park of the Castelli Romani

Like all lake basins of volcanic origin, Lake Albano has no tributary and is supplied only by rainwater and some

underlying springs. In 397 BC, the Romans carried out an enormous hydraulic engineering enterprise: an artificial emissary, which allowed the waters of the Lake to reach the sea in order to control the level. Further visible evidence of Roman Age are the Doric Nymphaeum and the Bergantino Nymphaeum.

From the Medieval Age you can see the Convento di Palazzolo and a few remains belonging to the Romitorio di S. Angelo.

It is the smallest of the two Castelli Romani lakes and in ancient times was also called Specchio di Diana (“Diana’s Mirror”) because of the Sacred Woods and the Temple-Sanctuary of Diana Nemorensis (p.10), the Goddess of Woods, situated along the banks.

Lake Nemi was appreciated as an entertainment and holiday location of by the ancient Romans. Emperor Caligula organized enormous celebrations in honour of Diana on his two famous ships, which were anchored in the centre of this small volcanic lake. The remains of the ships can be seen today at the Museum of Roman Ships (p.11) located on the banks of the same lake.

Today, a large part of the banks of the lake is taken up by cultivations of tasty good quality strawberries for which the attractive medieval town of Nemi has become renown.

According to the Goletta dei Laghi report in 2009, it is considered possible to bath in the lake in its complete form, except for the area in front of the Museum of Roman Ships.

Enchanting for the simple elegance of the historical centre, for the blue waters reflecting the town and it is worldwide famous as the Pope’s summer residence

In a splendid position overlooking Lake Albano, Castle Gandolfo is situated on the brink of a volcanic crater. The town is known for the beauty of the surrounding nature and its elegant historical centre encircled by the wall. It has been elected one of the most beautiful villages in Italy. Above all, the small town is famous for the Papal Palace where Popes have spent their summers since the 176 century. After all, Castel Gandolfo and neighbouring towns were favourite places to build summer residences as far back as ancient Roman times, initially by patrician families and emperors and later by important clergy and noble Romans. Evidence of ancient Roman times are the remains of the Villa di Domiziano (Domitian’s Villa) to which the Ninfeo Bergantino belongs. The villas and other residences surviving today such as the Chiesa di San Tommaso di Villanova (Church of St. Thomas of Villanova) were mostly built as of the 17th century when Castel Gandolfo became property of the the Holy See. Its history is very ancient as its origins go back to the town of Alba Longa.

Lying deep in the sacred woods that once were dedicated to Diana Nemorensis (also known as Diana of Nemi), is a charming medieval borgo well known nowadays for the delicious strawberries Gently resting along the border of the crater and surrounded by woods, Nemi overlooks the small volcanic lake bearing the same name. The charm of this small town of ancient origins and medieval aspect with its towers reflecting on the blue water of the lake surrounded by rushes and strawberry greenhouses, has seduced poets and painters and still enchants the many tourists visiting today. The history of Nemi is ancient and important. Because of the Tempio di Diana Nemorense (Temple of Diana Nemorensis), which was situated here, the area was already considered sacred by the Latin League. Later, it was also favoured by the Romans and Caligula, who decided to keep his two big ships used as banquet halls, anchored here. What is left of the vessels is conserved in the interesting Museo delle Navi Romane (Museum of the Roman Ships).

The hills of Castelli Romani, guardians of the Urbe Alba Longa, Tusculum and the origins of Rome

The origins of this part of the world are lost in myth, so much so that Cicero called these hills the ‘uterus of Rome’. The Castelli Romani area had a central rote in several events connected to the Eternal City: in fact it was here that Alba Longa was located. Legend has it that it was founded by Ascanius, son of Aeneas and was the capital of the famous Latium or Latin Civilisation. In the Tri century B.C.. Alba Longa was definitively conquered by Rome, after the legendary battle between the Horatii and the Curatii, and with it the whole Castelli Romani territory fell under the influence of the growing Roman civilisation. The area has always appealed to Rome’s affluent families and is full of the remains of villas and residences which belonged to noteworthy figures such as Marcus Tullius Cicero. Seneca, Domitian and Caius Julius Caesar, on the ruins of which stand entire villages. Among the most famous ancient towns in this area, the city of Tusculum cannot be forgotten. According to legend, it was founded by Telegonus, son of Homer’s mythical hero Ulysses. Located on the volcanic ridge of Mount Tuscola, the small city played a main role in the famous battle of Lake Regillo, where the Latiums were beaten by the Romans who had help from the Dioscuri Castor and Pollux themselves, or so legend has it. It yielded definitively when the Romans destroyed the city and razed it to the ground in 1191 for sheltering Frederick Barbarossa who was fighting the Romans at the time. The area where it once stood, where today lie the municipalities of Monte Compatri, Frascati, Grottaferrata and Monte Porzio Catone, was partially for grazing and partially woodland.

From Castles to sumptuous Villas The name ‘Castelli Romani’ indicates an area that includes a group of neighbouring municipalities to the south of Rome. The origin of this name dates back to the 14m century when, after the difficult period of the so-called Avignon Papacy, the process known as ‘encastellation’ began: some residents of Rome moved to the feudal castles owned by some rich Roman families in this area.

1500s, when a period of peace began that would last two centuries and allow the urban, architectural and artistic/cultural development of the zone. The architects of this long stretch of prosperity were the powerful families who owned feuds here, such as the Colonnas, the Chigis, the Sforzas and the Borgheses. It was during this period that the appearance of the Castelli Romani area was further embellished with the construction of numerous monumental buildings: from majestic Tuscolan villas such as Villa Nlondranone. Villa Falconien. Villa Rufinella, Villa Grazioli and Villa Aldobrandini to the Pope’s summer residence in Castel Gandolfo.

The eastern Romani area today In 1870. having been the focus of the most powerful Roman families and Popes for centuries, the Alban Hills area was annexed to the Kingdom of Italy and a series of infrastructural works was begun which improved rail and road connections and made the area a popular destination for travellers from all over Europe. The Second World War was a particularly painful time for the Castelli municipalities which were at the centre of Anglo-American bombardment. Despite this. the economy in the Castelli Romani area recovered immediately after the conflict, especially in the agricultural sector, and has remained healthy to this day.

Culinary tours from Rome to Castelli Romani

Traditional Dishes in the Roman Castles

Touring the fraschette is an activity to which you should devote yourselves assiduously. The fraschetta is a typical inn of the Castelli Romani area, with ancient origins connected to the move of carters from the countryside to Rome and the places where they stopped for refreshment. Today most of the fraschette offer traditional Castelli Romani cuisine, while some maintain the tradition of selling only wine to their customers who bring their own food. Try the Lane Pelose in Monti Prenestini.

La-fraschetta-di-monte
La-fraschetta-di-monte

This translates as Hairy Sheep which explains its humble origins among the shepherds. Just as balls of wool were pulled off the sheep to be processed, so the women pulled off pieces of dough to then roll them into strips. Today they keep the same name but the preparation technique has evolved: whole-wheat flour and water are used for the dough which is then rolled out and cut (roughly) into rough strips with the help of a knife, without too much concern for precision. They are served with many different condiments: porcini mushrooms, geld sauce or salted cod. The traditional first course in Castelli is fettuccine, which are prepared here with both wheat flour and chestnut flour (more rustic and aromatic) and served with a meat sauce or porcini mushrooms. Or, if you prefer, try the Gnocchetti a ‘coda di soreca’ (mouse tail gnocchi) a very simple pasta made from flour, water and a pinch of salt and made into an original shape that recalls a mouse tail. These are made by hand and are the

same diameter as a chunky bucatino pasta with a tapered tip. Typical of Prenestine cuisine, these are served with meat sauce, Iamb ragu and artichokes, You will also eat these gnocchetti from the typical ‘scifette’, rectangular containers made from wood: a real blast from the past. Speaking of fresh pasta, another typical dish from Castelli Romani and the municipality of Colonna in particular is pincinelle: a long round pasta. approximately 3 millimetres wide, made with a dough of flour, water and salt. Every menu also contains the local dishes that are now famous all over the world: delicious carbonara made with guanciale, egg, pepper and pecorino romano cheese; cacio e pepe whose ingredients are in the name (cacio e pepe means means pecorino romano cheese and pepper); amatriciana made with guanciale, tomato and pecorino romano cheese and gricia, similar to the amatriciana but without tomato.

The second courses are often made with lamb or abbacchio as it is known here. In Roman dialect, this means milk-lamb, which has always been a dominant feature in the culinary tradition of Castelli Romani. The Abbacchio Romano, born and raised wild or semi-wild within the borders of Lazio is also PGI protected and has a ,r and le n mea •, It is ised in meat is seasoned with garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper to make roasted abbacchio which is served with potatoes. To make abbacchio ‘alla cacciatora’ it is slow-cooked in a casserole dish or pan and flavoured with anchovies, olives and tomatoes depending on the recipe. Abbacchio ribs are eaten ‘scottadito’ style – cooked on the grill or barbecue and served immediately (the name translates as finger-burners) or breaded and fried. An ancient dish is the legendary Tordo matto di Zagarolo, rolled horsemeat with crushed lard. parsley, garlic, sage, coriander, chili and salt which is cooked in the embers, roasted or pan-cooked with local red wine. Tordo matto is made by the butchers of Zagarolo and it can also be found in some restaurants in Monti Prenestini. Other meat dishes, such as rabbit ‘alla cacciatora’ (with garlic, rosemary and vinegar) and humble sides that use the intestines or less noble parts of the animal such as pork tripe ‘alla romana’ with tomato sauce, mint and pecorino or beans with pork rind and iamb giblets. You must of course try the saltimbocca ‘alla romana’: a slice of veal pierced with a toothpick which holds a leaf of sage and a slice of prosciutto crudo, seared in oil and white wine.

mixed salads which abound on Italian menus, will be pleased to know that sides are a serious business in Castelli Romani. This is the land of ripassate vegetables where the vegetables are tossed in a pan with oil and garlic, occasionally some chili, and potato and ramoracci (a flavoursome wild herb) frittatas. Then there is the chicory, puntarelle, artichokes, asparagus and broccoli; all with that slightly bitter taste and crunchy consistency that make them exceptional accompaniments to the hearty second courses in typical Castelli cuisine.

King of sides is of course Artichoke ‘ells romana’, which is simmered in water and seasoned with garlic, mint and parsley, or perhaps oanzane.11a made with yesterdays soaked bread, fresh tomato and oregano You might never have tried it before but it is definitely worth a taste. The name is Scottone and it’s a cheese that is served… hot! You need to climb up to Rocca Priora to try it, because this is where Scottone is still produced to this day. It is a semi-liquid cheese, similar to ricotta, obtained after boiling sheep’s milk twice. The name (burner) reminds us that it should be served while it is still very hot in an earthenware bowl.

Coppiette – Castelli romani – Roman lakes wine tour

Among the local gastronomic specialities, the Castelli Romann norcinerias play a fundamental role: the Coppiette are spiced strips of dried pork. The manufacture process stars with the selection of the best cuts of meat which are then cut into strips and seasoned with salt, fennel seeds. chili, wine and various spices depending on the butcher’s recipe. Once seasoned, the strips are hung to dry and folded in half, hence the name coppietta (little couple). The coppietta should be bitten into with no hesitation or concern for etiquette, just like the old inn customers used to do who. stimulated by salt and spices, would then drink copious amounts of wine. In distant times, the coppietta was the inseparable companion of shepherds and legionary soldiers as it would keen for a long time in their saddlebags. Today it is eaten before, during and after meals, in the restaurant or as street food. It is a treat that is difficult to resist.

Porchetta of Ariccia - Lazio
Porchetta of Ariccia – Lazio

Porchetta is also an important part of the butcher tradition. It is made with boned pork, seasoned with aromatic herbs and then cooked in the oven or, as would be more traditional, over a wood fire. It is without a doubt the most popular dish in the fraschette, but also in restaurants in Frascati and all CasteIli Romani. Fans of cheese will not be disappointed by the Monti Prenestini, These lands re suited to pastoralism and offer a great variety of cheeses made with cow, sheep and goat milk. From ricotta to varyingly seasoned cheeses, that can be bought and tasted directly from the producer Cheeses and cold cuts go excellently with bread and there is an excellent local loaf made over a wood fire in Carchitti, a hamlet of Palestrina or the ‘Fascina’ loaf made in Rocca di Papa. They say that tradition is a successful invention. Hour, sugar and egg combine to make a formidable piece of culinary art: the Giglietto di Paiestrina. This delicious flaky biscuit requires rare manual skill so very few families continue the tradition and the Giglietti can only be bought in a few bakeries in Palestrina and Castel San Pietro Romano. The history of the Giolietto began in France do 1600 and is still celebrated today at the ‘Sagra del Giglietto e delle ghiottonerie dei Monti Prenestini’ (Monti Prenestini Feast of Giglietto and Gluttony) held in the first week of August. The Giglietto di Palestrina was Slow Food certified in 2014. If you still have not had enough of desserts and surprises, make haste to Rocca di Papa, perhaps with your sweetheart in tow. That’s right, weddings are celebrated with donuts in Rocca di Papa. The Ciambella degli Sposi di Rocca di Papa (Bride and Groom Donut from Rocca di Papa) recognised as a typical and traditional product, is connected to the wedding ceremony and used as an edible favour. Tradition has it that a specific number must be given dependino on your relation to the couple: 24 to your confirmation sponsors, 18 to your godparents, 12 for grandparents, uncles and aunts, 6 for friends and neighbours. Round with a hole in the middle. Ciambella degli Sposi di Rocca di Dois is made with simple ingredients sugar, egg, liquor, lemon zest. extra v rio.b b oi’ and yeast. It is then decorated .7 ii..,..:Hcoloured sugar sprinkles. The good news is that you don’t have to get married to try one: the Rocca di Papa bakeries make plenty during the orange flower season and for the feast of the Ciambella degli Sposi di Rocca di Papa which is held on the last Sunday of September. It is said that they are auspicious for a life full of joy. And donuts apparently. which isn’t half bad. Do you feel that air of fun, irreverence and exuberance? That is the typical Castelli breeze! It is time to try the Pupazza Frascatana. an imaginative and playful biscuit that looks like a woman with three nipples and is made with flour, honey and orange scent. It was created almost as a joke in the Sixties and became a typical product of the Frascati area. But why three nipples you cry. The answer is very simple: two for milk and one for wine. Castelli wine of course! The fact that wine is just as much a part of the local tapestry as traditional recipes is quite clear when you try the Wine Donuts. They are simple farm desserts to finish off a meal. The recipe uses basic ingredients such as flour. egg, sugar, lemon zest, extra virgin olive oil, vanilla, salt and Castelli white wine. Strips are made from the dough and then joined to create the typical round form and cooked in the oven. Aromatic and crunchy, these donuts are irresistible and it is quite impossible to stop eating them. The Wine Donuts are perhaps the most famous baked product of Castelli Romani but certainly not the only one: do not forget the Serpette, flaky biscuits with a winding form that looks like a snake, or the piangiallo made with honey and dried and candied fruit If you are planning an autumn trip, the main feature of your explorations in the Monti Prenestini will be the chestnut.
