As we are patiently awaiting our return to Italy, let us indulge in the second installment of our 2021 series of presentations on Italian cities.

This time, Enrico will lead us through a photographic tour of Rome, the Eternal City, to uncover its intertwined layers of history.

While the mythological story of Romulus and Remus abandoned on the banks of the river Tiber dates the founding of Rome back to 753 BC, there is earlier evidence of human settlement, making Rome one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in Europe. But as goes the saying… Rome wasn’t built in a day. Its transformation from an idyllic, countryside settlement into a bustling metropolis encompasses thousands of years and multiple historical eras on display for all to see, if one knows what to look for.

Enrico will have us travel through the most important moments of Rome’s past, from the Roman monarchy to our modern era as his camera zooms on some of the city’s most fascinating and beautiful sites.
