ITALIVE.IT | concept
ITALIVE.IT is a portal that informs drivers (travelers and tourists) about what is happening in the territory they’re crossing, offering a constantly updated calendar of the
best events organized.
It recommends travel experiences that enhance the italian artistic heritage and
highlights the excellence of tradition, offering a selection of food products and food
and wine tours.
In Italy almost 18,000 events are organized every year; even the important ones are
often left in the shadows; ITALIVE.IT, after a careful selection, reveals the most significant ones with the aim of promoting quality tourism.
The portal uses the successful cooperation with “Autostrade per l’Italia” integrating
its program in the schedule of the initiative “You are in a wonderful country, find out
with us” that promote quality tourism giving value to the extraordinary artistic and
cultural italian heritage; also it relies on the collaboration of Coldiretti, which provided a selection of houses, agritourisms, markets, shops and typical restaurants, in
order to offer more useful informations for programming and live unique and interesting travel experiences.
These factors help excellence of our tourism; strategic convergence and the promotion of combined cultural / recreational, typical food, food and wine tours and artistic
heritage, optimizes a synergy to enhance the tourist offer of the “Italian system”.
The events that animate our area represent not only an opportunity, often almost
unknown, of leisure and entertainment but also a prime chance to get in touch with
the history and the italian tradition, with the beauty and uniqueness of our places,
2
of our regions and, above all, of the small towns that are the real custodians of our
traditions, preserving and passing them.
ITALIVE.IT contributes to highlight the territory less known and to discover its traditional resources by enhancing the quantity and quality of tourist flows.
ITALIVE.IT aims to ensure the selection and on-time decisions to facilitate the planning of the trip and to avoid wasting time and money with trips to events or gastronomic itineraries not worthy.
The road network becomes useful and functional to the territory it crosses. Intercept drivers traveling or on vacation, teasing their curiosity, is certainly the best way
to involve them and raise awareness about the territory; talking about the territory
qualities to anyone who is going through that very territory is the best way to obtain
an effective and concrete response.
ITALIVE.IT has other unique features: collects opinions and feedbacks registering
them through a rating index; elaborates custom profiles based on interests; informs
newsletter subscribers about events scheduled based on indication of preferences and
tastes. Suggest useful and helpful breaks, good to relax and to spend time in unusual,
interesting ways.
The selected events are voted online, by users, based on objective criteria of organization, competence, reliability, historical, communication, originality and attractiveness.
The key word that best expresses and enhances these parameters is “Genius Loci”,
the ability to extract the synthesis of identity values of a land and its people (tradition, culture and talents) managing tobring all that outside its borders and affirm them.

THE TERRITORY
Acireale, “between Etna and the Sea”
Acireale is a marvellous Baroque Town,
extends for 3996 hectares on
a great lava platform, between
the peaks of the Volcano Etna
and the sparkling blue of the
Jonian See. The Town is only
15 km from the chief of the
district, Catania. Here you can find one
of the most important airport of Sicily.
Living an holiday in Acireale means to
be on the sea and on the mountain at
the same time. From the town centre by
feet, you can reach our beach in 5 minutes, you spend 20 minutes of car, to visit
the highest volcano in Europe. Acireale
has 53.000 inhabitants and is an antique
town rich of tradition, art and culture.
The origin of the town is connected with
the classical legend of Polifemo, Ulisse
and with the myth of Aci and Galatea.
The myth tells about the eternal love of
the sea nymph Galatea, for the sheperd
Aci and the terrible reaction of the giant
Polifemo, that crazy for jealousy, killed
with enormous stones the sheperd Aci.
The King Poseidone, moved to pity, turned Aci into a river. so the young lovers
lived their love in the deep of the Sea
Ionio. The legend tells that the river Aci
flows down the town and comes out in
one of the most picturesque village of
our coast, Santa Maria La Scala. In the
park of the town, “Villa Belvedere”, you
can admire the sculpture of “Aci e Galatea”, symbol of Acireale. Acireale, town
of baroque style In 1693, a strong ear-
best destination
thquake destroyed the eastern part of
Sicily, so the town was quickly rebuilded,
more rich and attractive then before, by
the resident noble families. Piazza Duomo, the main square, is one of the most
fascinating squares in Sicily. It’s composed
by three “jewels” of the baroque style:
the Cathedral, dedicated to our Lady of
Annunciation, the Basilica of SS. Pietro e
Paolo and the Town Hall. The building of
the Town Council is a gorgeous example
of baroque art, the facade realized with
lava stone and white stone from Ragusa,
is formed of rich portals, balconies with
iron sculpture and corbels full of horrible masks. Going around for the centre,
everything you see, churches, buildings,
statues, gardens, reminds you the sumptuous past of Acireale. We reccomend
to visit, very close to Piazza Duomo, the
Basilica of S. Sebastiano, second patron
saint of the town and Palazzo Musmeci.
Acireale, “ A Hundred Bells Town” Acireale offers so many monuments and
churches to visit, to be mentioned like
“a hundred bells town”. Frescos, paintings and religious ornaments of seventeenth and eighteenth century are inside
the holy temples. We suggest to visit the
little church of S. Maria della Neve, a natural cave containing the nativity scene,
with figures realized in eighteenth century, made of fabric and wax.
THE EVENTS
Acireale, an antique tradition of holy feasts Holy feasts in Sicily are very important
events for people and tourists. On 20th
of January, since 1571, the silver throne
carrying S. Sebastiano, the warrior saint,
is taken by bare-footed devotees on a
long and spectacular route, spurred on
and supported by great popular fervour. The traslation of a popular Sicilian
saying, tells: “for S.Sebastian feast, masks
for the street”. Infact, few days after the
procession, explodes in the town, one
million people event, four weeks of a
pagan feast, called Carnival. Acireale,
“The Best Carnival in Sicily” The Acireale Carnival is considered not only the
best in Sicily but recently, the third in
Italy. Hundreds of thousands of people
come every year to Acireale to enjoy
the colours, the music, the feasts of the
town. Gigantic, grotesque, allegorical
floats made of papier machè, cars covered with thousands of fresh flowers,
are the main attraction of the event.
The Carnival was filmed by the great
director Michelangelo Antonioni and
formed part of a video which represented Italy
at the Seville Expo,
in 1992. In
2016 the
Carnival
will start on
30th of January, until
the 9th of

from the 23rd, to 25th of April, a new
“Spring Edition”, dedicated to the floats covered with fresh flowers will be
presented. But don’t worry, the traditional papier-machè giants will be on
the streets too. On 26th of July, during
the summer events, made of concerts,
exibitions and sea-parties, another holy
feast, dedicated to our patron-saint,
Santa Venera, will show to the tourists another spectacular example of
popular participation. The “Holy Candles Race” ran by “dancing” devotees
is another original characteristic of this
feast. After that, the silver throne of the
Saint, will be carried for the streets of
the town. Finally, we propose you an
holiday, not only for your eyes and your
heart, but for your taste too. Our enogastronomic tours, made of fresh fish,
typical Sicilian dishes, wine from Etna
and traditional sweets, will be “the
cherry on the cake” you was waiting
for. See you very soon ....

THE TERRITORY
In the West Sicily, in the wide valley
of the Province of Trapani connecting
Erice Mountain and the archeological site of Segesta,
in a territory rich of amazing landscape resources, the
village of Buseto Palizzolo
stretches away: an archipelago made up of seven “urban islands”,
its hamlets, which contribute to its
par ticular urbanistic conformation.
For all these characteristics it has
been defined as “commune rurbano”,
a mixing between rural and urban
which is well suited to this territory,
devoted to agritourism and ideal for
excursions of extraordinary naturalistic interest.
Its favorable central position in the
Province of Trapani offers easy access
to the main places of tourist interest
such as the archeological site of Segesta, the wonderful beach of San
Vito Lo Capo, the Natural Oriented
Reserve of Zingaro, Egadi Islands, the
medieval town of Erice, Trapani, Saline
and Marsala.
Buseto landscape offers to the visitor
a rural view of extraordinary natural
beauty: hills and valleys completely
grown, changing colors, on whose
heights you can still admire Bagli, ancient rural constructions.
The local economy is traditionally linked to agriculture, but in recent years,
apar t from flourishing crafts and the
development of small and medium
industry, many tourist accommodation structures were raised, some of
them placed in the ancient “Bagli” or
“Casali”.

rites and various expressions of popular faith of all the Christian world, on Palm Sunday, one of the most

ce, the marching bands, the worshippers in traditional clothes which alternate the living pictures represent
a collection that makes Misteri of Buseto Palizzolo a truly great and unique event. The Holy Crucifix heads
the suggestive Procession and gives
its name to the homonymous Confraternity established in 1864.
During the Holy week, the Holy Crucifix is venerated by the faithful in the
Mother Church until dusk on Friday
when it is taken again in Procession
in the Badia Church from where it
will come the next year.

THE TERRITORY
Campli, rich in history and tradition, has
now gained a prominent position both as
a tourist and cultural entity.
The
Camplese
territory,
between Ascoli Piceno and Teramo, had since prehistoric-era
it’s own civilizations and settlements, as evidenced by several
archaeological findings
Palace of the Parliament said Farnese
The Palace of the Parliament of Campli is
the oldest civic building in Abruzzo.
The erection of the Palace of Parliament
is set around 1286. Originally it consisted
of two floors and a watchtower. The architectural features relate civic Gothic building, with the typical layout of large arches on the ground floor, meeting room
at the second floor and a big vaulted
passage of communication between the
interior and exterior spaces. The Palace
had undergone a restruc-turing before the beginning of the XVI century, as
evidenced by a block of tufa walled on
the facade in which is written “CAMPII MDXX.” Nowadays, the Palazzo Farnese,
as it is commonly called in honor of the
feudal family lord of the city, looks more
or less like the drastic restoration desired by the engineer Carlo Forti, who, to
save the structure, demolished what have
remained of the second and third floor
and limits the height of the building on
the first floor only.
The ceiling of the nave is absolutely
spectacular, so to make the visitor who
looks up to the sky breathless. Made of
best destination
wood planks, it is partly decorated by
paintings made directly on the boards
and in part by paintings on canvas by the
Roman school, depicting the baptism and
martyrdom of S. Pancrazio and in the
center the Assumption, all made in the
first half of the XVII century by Donato
Di Teodoro of Chieti.
Going down into the crypt, finally, you can
admire a cycle of frescos by the school of
Giotto, dating from around 1330 of great
artistic value.
The scenes of the frescoes represent the
four evangelists, the Resurrection, Pentecost, St. Helena carrying the cross, S. Ursula with the virgins.
The Holy Stair
The Holy Stair, like the Roman one, is
conceived as a sacred place of prayer: no
functions are celebrated.
Since its inauguration, it is a pilgrimage
destination and is among the most interesting and revered Italian places in Christendom.
The Holy Stairs consists of 28 steps in
olive wood; the walls that surround depict scenes from the Passion while in the
descent stairway there are scenes of the
Resurrection.
Other monuments to be visited:
Archeological Area in CapoValano, Archeological Museum, Church of San Francesco, Porta Angioina, San Pietro in Campovalano, Casa del medico, etc
Local Products
The porchetta italica (Italic roasted pork)
represents a culinary culture that for centuries has been passed down from gene-
ration to generation. In Campli, for ages,
this food was on the tables of princes,
bishops, nobles, and common people. In
Campovalano, hamlet of Campli at the
foot of Monti Gemelli, where truffle grow
in abundance and at any time of year, take
place the truffle festival with tasty food
and refined created with the unmistakable flavor and aroma of this wonderful
tuber. The festival takes place during the
event “Festival and Profane” where the
tasting of truffles are accompanied by
cultural and traditional events.
Wine production process is very significant in the Area of Campli: protected
from Gemelli Mountains on one side
and exposed to sea on the other, Campli
country is perfect for Wine production.
Here we produce Montepulciano d’Abruzzo, Trebbiano d’Abruzzo, Cerasuolo
and Pecorino. Rich is the variety of cured-meats and cheeses: they represent
the expression of a territory where only
biological agricolture is used for feeding
animals. Rich is the confectionery too,
with the typical Bauletto
Farnese, Cantucci, biscuits
and cakes of high quality.

THE TERRITORY
The territory of Ceresara has been characterized since ancient times for the
presence of cherry trees. Ceresara the name, which means
“place of the cherry”, “cherry
orchard”, has its roots in Latin
cerasus, cherry. Located in the
high plain valance, the area today
corresponding to the municipality of Ceresara was inhabited since the
Bronze Age average (1500 BCE): witness
the “Earthsea” discoveries in the hamlet
of Villa Chapel, typical of prehistoric settlements Valpadana . A strong impression
was then impressed by the Romans as
reveals the very name of Ceresara and
as attested by various and significant
findings, kept on site or in the museum
of the Palazzo Ducale in Mantua and in
the museum Peeled Bonoldi of Ceresara. In the Dark Ages were the Lombards
and the parish church of San Martino
Gusnago, another village ceresarese, to
exercise the primacy over the whole
area. With the construction of the castle,
which took place between the twelfth
and thirteenth centuries, the village of
Ceresara assumed greater importance
and became one of the centers of state
jurisdiction Gonzaga (1328-1707). Earth
to natural agricultural vocation, which
was happily engaged in since the sixties
of the last century an important industry
of hosiery, Ceresara boasts, among other
things, more than four thousand cherry
trees of different species, thus honoring
its membership association City cherries.
best destination
Another product of excellence, in addition to the delicious fruit is the Grana
Padano DOP cheese typical that a local
dairy cooperative produces more than
half a century.
Gonzaga Tower
Castle Ceresara, destroyed by Pinamonte Bonacolsi in the seventies of the thirteenth century and then rebuilt by Gonzaga, was a typical medieval fortress, surrounded by a double moat and ramparts
surmounted by palisades formed. He
possessed several wooden towers and
a single work in masonry, the entrance
tower, which was recently restored and
opened to the public.
Parish Church of SS. Trinity
The original building dates back to the
XII-XIII century. Later it was expanded
in 1724. The facade is the part that
best highlights the Romanesque church,
while the interior is late Baroque. The
belfry is also clearly of medieval except
the top raised and equipped with crenellations at the end of the nineteenth
century.
Sanctuary of the Madonna of Possenta
Built in the Middle Ages and then enlarged in the second half of the fifteenth
century through the work and will of
the people ceresarese, the church underwent renovations and alterations
over the centuries. According to tradition, there happened different wonders,
some of which are associated with the
presence of a well. It houses a terracot-
ta statue of the Madonna of the XV
century.
Tortello Cherry Possenta: crescent-shaped, dark red color, has a filling that has
as its main ingredient cherry, which gives
this first course a delicate and captivating taste.
Salame family ceresarese: is produced
with meat from pigs reared on site,
according to a specification drawn up
based on a tradition that dates back to
the Middle Ages and perpetuates the art
of “Massalì” (butchers).
Dolceresa: dark as the fertile land of Ceresara, this cake, that blends knowledge
and tastes handed down by some pastry
chefs and skilled chefs of the “land of the
cherry”, is an irresistible delight of cherries, chocolate and almonds.
THE EVENTS
Fair Possenta.
Entitled to the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the sanctuary of Possenta, built in medieval times on the border
with the territory of Goito, was registered by the end of the sixteenth of an annual fair held there, with great competition of nations, March 25 , the day when
in fact it celebrates the Annunciation.
The late nineteenth and early twentieth
century the demonstration was occasionally moved to the capital and here

goods” is today an eclectic event, a great

It is held usually the first weekend in June,
when the cherries are ripe and ready to

territory. The festival, full of red, with the
presence in the square of the banquets

THE TERRITORY
This project “ Cuore di puglia” ( Heart
of Puglia) has come to terms thanks to
the good will of 40 local councils. The aim of this project is
to revisit the territory via the
Good Practise Approach invarious sectors such as: tourisim,
culture , tradition, agriculture and food. A specific programme is being presented by CUORE DI PUGLIA which
ammalgamates the importance of agricultural quality, nutritional education and
enviormental sustainability. The gist of the organisation is to put in
evidence the Apulian quality of life via
multi-sensorial expierances, such as: the
social implications converted by the village feasts, the artiginal and striking street-light -decorations, the aroma of various food- stands, melodious folkloristic
music and vibriant band-marches . These secular multisensoral traditions are
brought back to life thanks to CUORE
DI PUGLIA that manages to amalgamete famers, artisians and historians in order to preserve the heart and soul of
such a unique territory. The local councils partecipating in this
project have a longitudinal historical
food and agricultural tradition. The hub
of the organisation is to certify excellence and quality via a real and authentic
validation programme. The HEART OF APULIA is not only
history and “taste” but also a means
(tool) of improvement targeting: food
production, ethical structure in industrial
and food productivity and final but not
least rural community incentives .
Through the optic lens of territorial improvement school education is fundamental. “Orti in Condotta” ( Conduct
in the Orchiard) is a pedagological- programme carried out in schools (in the
mentioned territories) in order to convey the love, respect and attention to
a good meditterranean diet. Children
learn to distinguish the impotrance of
good food from fast food via a hands
on expierance. The organisation CUORE DI PUGLIA is also engaged in a solidarity programme with Africa and other
developing countries. CUORE DI PUGLIA is an instrument, a means not only
to share the meditteranean diet but also
to promote a rational, altruistic, convivial
biopsycosocial life style. To this day 40 local councils adhere to
the organisation CUORE DI PUGLIA:

THE TERRITORY
The town of Fiumicino (78 thousand
people) covers an area of ​​222 square kilometers and is divided
into 14 different resorts (or
small towns): Isola Sacra, Fiumicino, Parco Leonardo, Le
Vignole, Fregene, Maccarese,
Passoscuro, Palidoro, Porto,
Torrimpietra, Aranova, Testa di Lepre
, Tragliata and Tragliatella. The ancient
name of the town comes from the
latin “flumen micinum”, or “little river”
(or little mouth, small mouth), referring to the channel that served as a
mooring for boats. For its dimension,
it is one of the largest municipalities
in Italy in maritime vocation, but also
famous for its agricultural activities and
naturalistic scenarios.
Fiumicino has the longest coast of the
Lazio region, with its 24 km of coastline. Typical products, food and drinks
best destination
(over 500 restaurants are currently
available in Fiumicino), but also archeological sites, as well as its proximity to
the city of Rome represent the strengths of a territory growing and going
towards a continuous improvement of
the tourism and trade. Bathing establishments and free beaches are only few
of the hundred activities that exist on
the coast, from Fiumicino to Passoscuro, through Focene, Fregene, Maccarese and Palidoro.
Overall, all the 14 small towns offer
many points of interest in terms of
tourist attraction. Just to mention few
of them, in Fiumicino there is the village Valadier located into the centre,
but also Santa Maria Porto della Salute
(church), Fontana delle Cinque Lune
(fountain), the ancient Harbour of
Claudio and Traiano, the Oasis of Porto, the Castle of Porto. In Isola Sacra
we have the Basilica of S. Ippolito, the Necropolis of Porto, Villa
Guglielmi, the Crucifix church
and the dock; in Maccarese, the
WWF Oasis “Macchiagrande”,
St. George Castle, the Tower of
Spring; in Fregene the ancient
pine forest and the Fisherman’s
Village, in Palidoro the dunes, the
tower and the village; in Torrimpietra the Castle and the Tower
of romper; in Tragliatella the Caves of Pertucce.
Fiumicino is famous also thanks
to its cuisine. Indeed, fish courses
together with good wine, are the mainstay of the Fiumicino cuisine.The strongest attraction with regards to food
consumption is the local fish but even
more, a wide range of local products.
The agricultural sector is one of the
main resources of the territory. Within
the territory, a total of 400 companies
are currently active. The majority of
them (nearly 250) produce vegetables,
in particular carrots, and fruits, such as
melons and watermelons. Among the
main crops are also those of tomatoes,
fennel and salad. Twenty of these companies have embarked on the road of
biological. The farms (especially dairy
cattle and meat) are about 160, mainly
concentrated between Aurelia street
and the northern part of the town

THE TERRITORY
South of Benevento the remains of
ancient Foglianise tell a story dating
back to Roman times, in one
of the most well preserved
and less known natural sceneries of Italy.
The town is situated between a group of mountains including the famous Taburno, 350 Mt
above sea.
From the heights of Mount Caruso,
that dominates the entire village, take
shape opulent hills and vegetable gardens. Folianum, the ancient Foglianise,
originates from a Roman epigraph
dedicated to goddess ‘Fortuna Foglianensis’ dating back to the 3rd century
AD. In par ticular, the village is named
after patrician Folius Oriens, a nearby
land owner.
The urban layout of Foglianise is par ticularly elegant: the dominant element
is the local stone that level out streets,
alleys, steep stairs and doorways. The
old town retains the ancient Lombard
shape, relatively untouched over time.
It is between arches and gates in the
alleys of the old town that you can
still relive past memories.
Mount Caruso dominates the town
and the whole valley of Foglianise Vitulanese.
Imaginary womb for D’Annunzio’s
Sleeper of Sannio, the mountain looks
like a huge boulder of crumbly limestone lacking any vegetation; a silent
giant, menacing-looking, ready to fall
over the area below. A strategic point
of view that, according to tradition,
was chosen by Manfredi of Swabia as
a lookout point during the Battle of
Benevento in 1266.
Set in Mount Caruso, is the famous
Cave of the Archangel Michael, that
hosted, as happened in Gargano, an
apparition of the archangel. Around
the cave, true religious hear t of the
village, was built in Lombard times
San Michele Hermitage, a stone building that seems a whole with the
mountain.
Land of Holiness, poets, artists, in
over a thousand years this Samnite
town consigned to history illustrious
people bringing prestige to Foglianise

both in Italy and abroad. Among them
is Monsignor Francis Pedicini, Archbishop of Puglia and Bishop of Bari. On
the 3rd of February 1859 he celebrated the marriage of the last King of
Naples, Francis II and Princess Maria
Sophie of Bavaria; an episode that
cost him the exile to Foglianise.
And then Father Isaiah Columbro
who lived in the convent of the Most
Holy Annunciation and St. Anthony,
founded in the fifteenth century by
San Bernardino of Siena, who thanks to a lifetime spent humbly serving
the community, is now going to the
process of beatification. Men such as

Set in the green lung of the Taburnus
Regional Park, Foglianise has a variegated landscape, characterized in particularly by vineyards that produce
fine “nectars”, including the Aglianico,
the Greek, the Foxtail and the Falanghina; all wines wisely produced by
the Cantina del Taburno, recognized
by the DOC label.
Even the age-old olive trees, arranged
in terraces, tell stories of hard work in
the fields and of valuable products for
all tables around the world. Roman
Barn Foglianise was characterized by
an economy based on the plantation
of wheat. This precious gift of the
land, a food critical to the existence
of the village and used many times
as a bargaining chip, is nowadays no
longer grown in large quantities, never theless has given rise to the popular and renowned
Festival of Wheat
that takes place
every year, during
August, to celebrate rightfully its
value.
Thanks to its history, its culture
and its values the
village in 2012
was given the status of Town, with

THE TERRITORY
The town of Foligno in the past years
has been a hinge between the Adriatic and the Tyrrhenean Sea,
being a point of attraction
for commerce. Maybe it is
for this reason that it has the
least countryside-like character among the Umbrian
towns, that it is of a less picturesque
beauty, more reserved, maintaining the
fascination of an ancient travel post.
It could have been a town in the Po
valley, homesick for the sea, had it not
been surrounded by many hills. From
this crown of hills the water flows
best destination
in the valley with a tight and regular
maze, where time ago lay the humidity
of the marshes. The town is contained
in the oval of its walls. The river Topino encloses it and crosses the town
in some of its most characteristic corners, where once were ancient workshops and where now orchards and
gardens survive. A striking slice of life,
within the walls, of an area destined to
production. Large roads planted with
trees, from all four cardinal points, lead
to the gates, behind which we find the
squares with their churches and mendicant orders as a garrison.
In San Domenico square, behind Porta
Santa Maria (today called Porta Todi),
we find the Church of Santa Maria Infraportas and that of San Domenico.
In San Francesco square, behind Porta
Romana, the Church of San Francesco
and the more recent Church of Gonfalone. From Porta dell’Abbadia (today
Porta Ancona) one can reach Piazza
Garibaldi with the Churches of San
Salvatore and Sant’Agostino. At last
San Giacomo square, on the North,
with its homonymous church just after
the bridge on river Topino. The roads
which start from here, flanked by long
rows of rich palaces, end up in Piazza
Grande, fulcrum of social and civil life,
result of history and art. The square
opens up, at its four corners, to perspectives of theatral scenography. Also
Foligno has its noble palace, image and
spur of human civilization. The Trinci
family wanted to celebrate mankind in
its gothic vaults which draw the walls, caught in its various attitudes, in its
exercise of civil and artistic activities.
The Renaissance painter of Foligno
will be called “umbratile” (shady, immaginary), to indicate his originality in a
reserved and dark way to live the golden Roman horizons. Its true vocation,

always been the seat of active manufacturing workshops and small fabrics
working rope, baskets for olive paste,
oil, grain, paper, printing. They have given the town its characteristic production and commercial appearance.
THE EVENTS
Fairs of glorious history have expanded its fame. Its businesslike character
has not diminuished its fantasy. In the
field of parties, no town could equal
Foligno in realising as present and alife the impossible dream of history. In
the months of June and September
the town lives the climate of a chivalrous tourney of the 17th cent. again in
the Giostra della Quintana, while the
Segni Barocchi Festival enriches the
party with music and preparations of
scenes like in theatre. Nothing can be
compared to the festival I Primi d’Italia

when pasta invades the historical centre transforming it in a boiling pan. The
future ? Every year it is predicted by
the most famous almanc of the world,
Barbanera, which for more than a century has been printed here in Foligno.

THE TERRITORY
Guidonia Montecelio, with its 9 square
feet and almost 90 thousand citizens,
constitutes one of the most
important urban centres in the
Lazio region. Formely district
of Montecelio, ancient hamlet
with archeological traces belonging of the period of the
Roman Empire, reached his
present configuration in 1937,
with the unification in a single municipality with the so-called foundation city,
an important example of rationalism in
city planning and architecture and in the
construction of its military airport. It’s
an ancient and modern city at the same
time. A double track, which takes the
community to keep a steady historical
and traditional memory in the Montecelio city centre, with cultural and folkloristic events: first of all, a parade of
traditional female dresses, called “vunnelle”, which liven up the streets of the
city once a year. It’s a dive into the past
for whoever wants to take part in it.
In addition, there are tangible evidents
of a millennial history. The ruins of the
ancient medieval citadel, just reopened
at visitors, and the archeological discoveries, statements of an old settlement
existing from the first centuries a.C.,
emerged from excavates directed over
all the district territory, then collected
and exposed in the former convent of
Saint Michael, whose structure, entirely
restored, contains now the civic museum Rodolfo Lanciani. Here takes place
the most precious discovery for the status of preservation and craftsmanship:
the Capitoline Triad. The quintessential
representation of three roman divinities, Jupiter, Juno and Minerva, seated
on a single bench and surrounded by
allegoric figures, was extracted with skill
from a single piece of the local stone,
the white gold of the Tiburtine valley:
the travertine. In addition, there’s the
other cultural and historical pearl, the
last dwelling, recently restored with respectful operations on all the rationalist
structures. The buildings, the streets, the
squares, realized between the twenties
and the forties of the nineteen centuries, follow the geometrical figures and

THE TERRITORY
The Castle of Monteriggioni and its
territory
The townlands of Monteriggioni, with the walled town as
their capital, cover an area of
about 100 km2 directly to the
north of Siena, full of woods,
hills, vineyards and olive groves,
dotted here and there with often very ancient settlements.
There are many vestiges of the past,
among which the former Abbacy of Abbadia Isola, with its 12th Century church,
the 13th century Hermitage of San
Leonardo al Lago and the castles of La
Chiocciola and Castiglion Ghinibaldi are
worthy of note.
The townlands also take in the western slopes of the Montagnola Senese, a
large area of unspoiled nature that has
been declared a Site of Community Im-
portance (SCI). The area is criss-crossed
by a network of trails, including the Via
Francigena, which can be travelled on
foot, bicycle or on horse-back.
An ancient pilgrim route leading from
Northern Europe to Rome, the Via
Francigena passes by the Castle of Monteriggioni, which is also a stop-off on the
present-day Ministry of Culture route between San Gimignano and Siena.
Located in central Tuscany, the Castle of
Monteriggioni was built by the Republic of Siena at the beginning of the 13th
Century in order to defend its southern
border against Florence.
The town walls date from that time. With
their impressive towers, they feature in
Dante’s Divine Comedy ([…] Because as
on its circular parapets / Montereggione
crowns itself with towers, / E’en thus the
margin which surrounds the well / With

The main sights inside the town are the
Church of Santa Maria Assunta (13th
Century), the battlements on the town
walls and the small ‘Monteriggioni in
Arme’ museum, which uses models, panels and life-size armours that can even be
tried on to offer amusing insight into the
glorious military past of the town.
THE EVENTS
Medieval Festival in Monteriggioni:
XXV edition
2015 is an important year for Monteriggioni Medieval Festival, a traditional summer appointment in Tuscany.
The occasion of the 25th year anniversary is both an arrival point and a starting
point; it’s a kind of refoundation, maintaining the features which had success in the
past edition and removing the characteristics which were not appreciated.

THE TERRITORY
Strategically located in the heart of
the region Campania at 30 km from
Naples, Nola in one of the
major cities of its Region.
This modern city is rich in history, culture and traditions.
Indeed, one of the most ancient Roman amphitheatres
was built here. Moreover, the Paleochristian Basilicas, the most interesting
architectural complex of the first Christian communities found in Europe,
was discovered in the neighbouring
town of Cimitile.
Nola in not only the place where
Octavius Augustus, the first Roman
emperor, died but also the hometown
of the philosopher Giordano Bruno. It
is the city where the nobility of the XV
century used to commission artworks
to famous artists such as the Baroque

still enrich the churches and museums
of Nola. In addition, even the uprisings
of the Carbonari started from Nola in
the 1820.
Apart from this, Nola has a relevant
gastronomic heritage as shown by the
well known “carciofo (artichoke) pignatella”.
THE EVENTS
I Gigli di Nola
They swing sinuously on the shoulders
of 120 people following the rhythm of
a lively and joyful music. We are speaking about “I Gigli di Nola”, literally
“the Lilies of Nola”, Unesco world heritage. The Gigli are high towers made
in wood and papier-mâché by the skilled local artisans, they are 25 meters
high and weigh more than 100 kilos
each. They represent symbolically the
Nola’s inhabitants’ worship of Saint Paolino, Father of the Church and bishop
of Nola.
The celebration begins each year on
the Sunday after June 22 and goes
on from more than two
centuries. The eight obelisks together with a wooden boat are fundamental
to create the magic atmosphere which characterizes
the event. During the morning, the Gigli are carried
to the main square, piazza
Duomo, in the presence of
an excited crowd and then
brought around the town
in the afternoon when the arduous
challenge takes place as each paranza,
that is the group of 120 people, has
to raise and bear the obelisks in the
narrow streets of the city. The obelisks, Gigli, are named after the lilies, the
flowers that were originally offered
to Saint Paolino when he first came
back to Nola from Africa. The saint, in
fact, had offered himself as prisoner
on behalf of the son of a poor widow
and was therefore taken to Africa. It
was the year 431 before Christ when
he was welcomed by his fellow citizens
shaking lilies. The anniversary of his arrival is celebrated since then with the
same enthusiasm and joy through the
“Festa dei Gigli”, the festivity of lilies, to

commemorate the return of the saint,
proving the deep-rooted religious and
folkloristic tradition. The cultural heritage laying behind the celebration contributed to register this event in the list
of Intangible Cultural Heritage established by Unesco in 2013 together with
the other three “celebrations of big
shoulder-borne processional structures” of Viterbo, Sassari and Palmi Calabro. The Gigli of Nola are the flagship
of Nola, the hometown of the philosopher Giordano Bruno, the city where the history meets the tradition and
the food becomes art. Strategically located in the neighborhood of Naples,
Pompei, Sorrento, Positano and Capri,
Nola is definitely a must-see place.

THE TERRITORY
Novara di Sicilia is located at the boundary between the Peloritan and the Nebrodi mountains, within a picturesque valley which has the
Rocca Salvatesta and the Rocca Leone rising above it from
the South, and is open from
the North to the Tyrrhenian
sea. The municipal territory includes the
city center and the surrounding villages
—San Basilio, Badiavecchia, San Marco,
Santa Barbara and Scellia.
The city is deeply rooted in the prehistoric: there are shelters that date back
to the stone age which are located at
Casalini and Sperlinga. The Normans
handed the territory over to the Lombards who were following King Ruggero
I, King Ruggero II founded a monastery
in it and King Federico II created within
its boundaries an area entirely reserved
for hunting.
In the 16th and the 17th centuries, the
city witnessed an explosion in the construction of both civil and religious edifices endowed with undeniable artistic
and architectural importance.
The cathedral (Il Duomo) with its elegant central nave and two lateral aisles
demarcated by sets of monolithic columns above which are found Corinthian
capitals has also a monumental 16th
century façade made from local sandstone. A ‘must visit’ in this church are: the
circular crypt located under the apse
with its mummies, strainers, dryer and
niches made from stone; the treasure of
the cathedral; the baptistery in which is
found a baptismal fount made from the
local red marble upon which is elegantly placed an artistic wooden dome; the
best destination
chapel of the Blessed Sacrament found
at the left-hand side aisle, made from
marble with inlaid coloured enamels;
the chapel of Assunta (Assumed Blessed
Virgin Mary), the Patroness of the city
found at the right-hand side aisle.
At Badiavecchia (3 km from the city center) is found S. Maria La Noara — a royal
church that formed part of the first Cistercian monastery in Sicily, built in 1137.
Typical are the windows and the gothic
arcs. In the city center are also found the
following churches:
L’Annunziata, a church with three naves
that dates back to 1697 within which
are found friezes and other decorations
in local sandstone and a set of marble
statues representing the Annunciation of
the birth of Christ. (Presently these marble images are kept in the baptistery of
the mother church).
La Chiesa di S. Nicolò (a church dedicate to St. Nicholas) was built in the
1600s and it has only one nave. Captivating is the flight of steps, made from local
sandstone, which lead into the church.
At the huge portal are found two stone
columns. The internal architecture is also
very pleasing to behold especially after
the resent repair works.
S.Antonio Abate (church dedicated to St.
Anthony of Egypt), built in the 17th century is located at the lower part of the
city in the quarters named after the saint.
It has a Norman styled entrance door, a
central nave and two aisles. The columns
found inside the church, are unbroken pillars of stone on top of which are placed

L’Abbazia di Novara di Sicilia (the Abbey of Novara di Sicilia) is found on the
higher grounds of the city, located beside the Antonian Institute of St. Annibale Maria di Francia. Inside this church is
found a wooden reliquary — an important piece of artwork — which houses
the relics of the Patron Saint Ugo Abate
(Abbot Hugo) and of many saints and
martyrs. The Jar of S. Ugo Abate, an arabo-hispanic earthenware vessel and a
bronze thurible, historically connected
to King Federico II, which were kept in
this church in the past are now in exposition in the cathedral treasure room.

Santhià is a town with ancient origins.
It is an important agricultural and commercial centre, located in the

is indeed the Parish or Collegiate
Church of Sant’Agata. The present
building, constructed in neoclassic style
between 1836 and 1839, based upon
the design of the architect Giuseppe Talucchi, features three naves and six side
chapels, one of which holds the remains
of Capuchin friar S. Ignazio da Santhià,
who was consecrated in 2002. The
church hosts a precious polyptych by
Girolamo Giovenone (of 1531) and is
best destination
embellished by an organ made by Serassi brothers in 1858.
Do not miss visiting the crypt of Santo
Stefano, located beneath the presbytery
of the Collegiate, dating back to the 12th
century, nor admiring the majestic Bell
Tower in late Romanic style, that dates
back to the 12th century as well, and
stands about 35 metres high. Both the
crypt and the bell tower have been declared national monuments.
The Piedmont town is nowadays especially known for its historic Carnival, the
most ancient of Piedmont – the existence of this allegoric event is witnessed
by documents dating back to the beginning of the 14th century. The kermesse
includes rites and ceremonies belonging
to the so-called “Tradition”, that encompasses Pule and Còngreghe, Bisse and
Curantun, in addition to the Colossale
Fagiolata (Colossal Bean Soup), the Corsi Mascherati (Masked Avenues), the Gironi Infernali (Infernal Circles), the Rogo
del Babaciu (Stake of Babaciu), the Sfilata dei Maiali (Pigs’ parade), the Benedizione dei Fagioli (Blessing of beans),
the Sveglie Antelucane (predawn
wakes)… During Carnival, the masters
of the town are the two local Masks
- Majutin dal Pampardù and Stevulin
d’la Plisera – that received the keys
to the town by the hand of the mayor. There are three allegoric parades
(one of which is held at night) that can
be admired in the town during the last
three days of Carnival. However, the
leading event of this historic show is

without doubt the Colossale Fagiolata
(The Colossal Bean Soup) on Shrove
Monday, with 20,000 portions of beans
given for free to the inhabitants (and the
numerous guests) and eaten in less than
20 minutes.The dates of the next Carnival
are: July 25, 2015 with the “1st Edition of
the Summer Carnival” (organized to maximise the impact of the Expo), while as to
the 2016 Edition, it shall start on January
6 (Epiphany), as per tradition, it shall continue through February 4 (Giobia Grass),
until reaching its climax, on the following
days Saturday 6th to Tuesday 9th February
2016, with the traditional initiatives related to the historic Carnival of Santhià.
Santhià is also Via Francigena! The great
historic, religious and cultural journey that along the centuries has led thousands and thousands of pilgrims from
Central Europe and England to Rome
– included a historic stop-over in Santhià,
and more precisely it was the 44th stop of
the journey made by the English Bishop
Sigeric in 990 AD, when, going back to
Canterbury, after having been in Rome
to receive the bishop’s Pallium, he kept
a note of each of the legs he walked.
Nowadays, most pilgrims travel from
North to South, proceeding towards
Rome, but some also travel backwards,
exactly the way Sigeric did. In fact, pilgrims passing by Santhià may walk both
towards Vercelli (direction Rome) and
towards Viverone-Ivrea (direction Canterbury).
The area surrounding Santhià is a
wonderful showcase of landscapes and
www.comune.santhia.vc.it
[email protected] [email protected]
allows you to admire several different
environments in just a few kilometres:
from rice fields to the first moraine
hills, from orchards to woods, always
with the Alps in the background. This is
why the Santhià area offers numerous
cycling and trekking options, both as
local stop-overs of historic-cultural or
religious programs of international relevance, as well as open circuits or loops
starting off from our centre. These paths
might be travelled both on foot or by
bicycle, and the “train + bike” service is
very useful in this sense due to the proximity of the town station. Thanks to the
availability of expert local guides and the
experience gained through the years by
the Associazione Amici della Via Francigena di Santhià (Association of Friends
of the Via Francigena of Santhià) the options are many and can be customised
to meet everyone’s requirements. All
the itineraries run mainly on secondary
or countryside roads, with little or no
traffic at all.

THE TERRITORY
Along the foothills of Mount Murano
at the entrance to the “Gola della Rossa”gorge, steeped in the vegetation of the namesake regional
park – lies one the of the most
distinctive villages of the Marches, named Serra San Quirico.
Its current urban layout, dating
back to the first Etruscan and Roman
settlement, arose as a stronghold for
controlling the route leading from the
Apennines towards the Adriatic Sea. The
historical fortunes of the village - an independent city-state since the 13th Century, later incorporated into the Papal state
– are reflected in its advanced fortified
structure, still accessible today through
the so-called Copertelle, the original
covered patrol paths, surmounted by
dwellings and illuminated by arched windows and loopholes. The fortified village
still makes a startling impression with its
characteristic ship-like shape resembling a
galley miraculously cast into the rock.
The medieval old town is one of the
most beautiful in the “Marche ” where
it is possible to admire wonderful palaces
and churches of rare beauty and enjoy
enchanting and panoramic views, walking
through a maze of narrow and evocating
streets. We will briefly describe some of
the treasures which can be found by visiting Serra San Quirico. At the entrance to
the village, after leaving behind the pristine
waters of the historical Fontenova and
Fontecorona springs, visitors can admire
the former Church of S. Maria del Mercato, erected in 1289 by the Hospitaliers.
Its elegant bell tower with superimposed
sections is among the best examples of
Romanesque art in the area.The key point
Is Piazza della Libertà, a charming place,
with the municipal tower dating from the
13th Century, the 15th Century Municipal
Palace, the 16th Century fountain, Manin
Loggia ( a “balconey” overlooking the valley),Piccioni Palace ( formerly the Oratorio of the Filippni) Ortolani and della Meridiana Palace. The stairway in the square
leads up to the Church of St.Lucy ( 1281
) with its severe Romanesque façade in
starting contrast to the lavish 17th Century Baroque interior, containing superb
paintings by Pasqualino Rossi, Guido Reni
and Cavalier d’Arpino, alongside a perfectly functional - and very rare - organ
destined by Giuseppe M.Testa (1675).
A monumental Cloister connects the
church to the former monastery of the
best destination
Sylvestrines. Both the external and the
interior confirm the grandeur of the
construction and also the impact of the
Fathers of St Sylvester’s Order in Serra
San Quirico. Walking through the corridors and rooms, you may have the feeling
to see the monks studying, praying and
working. This structure called “Complesso Monumentale di S.Lucia” currently
houses the headquarters of the “Gola
della Rossa e di Frasassi”Regional Park
and the Historical Regional Cartography Library of the Marches, besides an
enchanting museum area. On top of the
stairway, lies the 14th Century Torre del
Cassero which was used in the past as the
check point dominating the Vallesina and
rampart as well for the defence of the village. Close to the centre of the village, visitors may admire the Church of St.Philip
Neri ( 1678) with a finely-carved choir
loft; the church dedicated to St.Quiricus
and St.Julietta, founded in the early 11th
Century by St.Romuald which preserves
the Sacred Thorn , venerated over the
centuries by the townfolks and some
popes, including Pope Paul III and Pope
Gregory XVI; the Church of St.Francis
( 1262), the largest Church in Serra San
Quirico and one of the first dedicated to
the Saint From Assisi, currenty used as an
exhibition venue. Serra San Quirico Station, the current large town, lying down
on the banks of the River Esino ,was born
around the Church of Santa Maria di Loreto, built in the seventeenth century to
accommodate travelers who were pre-

paring to cross the “Red Gorge” which
was subject to the attack of dangerous
robbers. On September 18,1841, the village had the honour to welcome Pope
Gregory XVI, coming from Loreto.
You are surrounded everywhere by vegetation and pine forests. You may enjoy
the fascinating beauty of the hills, the
walks with sightseeing on unexplored
corners in a peaceful atmosphere. In other words, Serra San Quirico is the ideal
destination just waiting for you to discover it. We invite you to enjoy the luxury
of taking the time to explore our place,
immersing yourself in local landscape, the
history and culture. You will return to the
simple pleasures of life when savoring our
unique specialties and tasting our wine.
You can go for a run, scale down rockfaces, explore on foot or by bike through
the hills. Talking to the local people, you
will learn a lot about living traditions. You
will feel unforgettable emotions that you
will be proud to take home and happy to
experience once more.
THE EVENTS
Many events are organized in Serra San
Quirico regarding Culture, music or entertainment. We will just mention a few
of them:
• National Festival of the Theater of

THE TERRITORY
The origins of Telese have to be traced
back to the ancient Roman town of
Telesia, an important centre
which in 215 b.C. was recognised as “urbs foederata” (town
allied with Rome). Today the
ancient ruins of Telesia can be
seen some kilometers away
from Telese Terme in the territory of San
Salvatore Telesino.
Around 10th Century writings reveal
the presence of a cathedral outside the
walls of Telesia in the surroundings of
today’s Via Roma in Telese Terme. A first
village developed therefore around the
cathedral which became the seat of the
bishop and the ancient diocese in 5th
Century.
The earthquake in 1349 completely destroyed Telesia. The continuous shakes
lasted until 9th September of the same
year and they caused an upset of the soil
giving origin to ponds, swamplands and a
lake. Most devastating was the emission
of carbon dioxide and sulphur dioxide in
the air which made life almost impossible to live.
The “mofete” (stinking sulphureous water) caused the escape of the inhabitants from Telesia. The bishops abandoned
the village too as the unhealthy climate
was at the origin of numerous diseases.
Also Monsignor Branca, bishop between
1413 - 1453, wrote about his discomfort
and the annoyance of those strong exhalations rising from the river Grassano.
Later in 1609 bishop Giovanni France-
best destination
sco Leone requested the congregation
of bishops to leave Telese and move to
Cerreto Sannita as the cathedral was
destroyed, the village left with no inhabitants, the air was unhealthy and priests
arriving from the neighbouring villages
were continuously assaulted by thieves.
The congregation accepted the request
and left Telese on 22nd maggio 1612.
At the beginning, Telese was a landed
estate of the Gaetano family. In 1487 it
passed into the possession of Lagonessa family and in 1540 it belonged to the
Caracciolo’s.The feud had no inhabitants
and it was simply sold through an auction. The Grimaldi family bought it and
they annexed it to the feud of Solopaca.
They ruled both Telese and Solopaca until 1806 when feudalism was abolished.
The Grimaldi introduced mills on the
territory and had several houses built
where about 30 people started to live
in Telese again. The rebirth of Telese was
slow but businessmen started to realize the importance of the sulphureous
waters and decided to exploit them by
paying the costs of reclamation of the
soil.
In 1861 Telese was a part of the territory
of Solopaca and counted 494 inhabitants. By the end of 19th Century Telese
had its own post office, the thermal baths were opened and a train station was
constructed. The rebirth of Telese led
its inhabitants to ask for “independence”
from Solopaca and after several years,
on 21st January 1934, Telese became an
autonomous municipality.

Meanwhile a dispute started with San
Salvatore Telesino because of the possession of the thermal water sources.
The dispute ended after many years in
1957 when both sides agreed to create a consortium for the management
of the thermal baths. In 1992 with a referendum, the municipality changed its
name from “Telese” into “Telese Terme”.
In 2014 the inhabitants have celebrated
80 years of their hometown’s independence and the Italian government has
recognized Telese Terme as “Città” (city).
Furthermore, the authorities of the
Campania Region have acknowledged
Telese Terme its status of “Città d’Arte,
Turismo e Cultura” (Town of Art, Tourism and Culture).
The history of this town shows the commitment of its people to work, sacrifice
and suffering but also the strength of
integration with different cultures and
ethnic groups. Telese is a beautiful territory thanks to its culture, history, art and
geography. As it develops in the centre
of the Telesina Valley, it is the crossroads
between Rome and Puglia region and
between Naples and the Region of Molise. This favourable geographic position,
Telese’s natural beauties, such as the lake,
and the fact that it is the only town with
thermal baths in the whole province of
Benevento represent the factors for a
continuous development of the town
which is at present leading to the Union
of different towns in a wider territory of
“Città Telesina”.

THE TERRITORY
From the hill on which it was built, Volterra controls a wide territory rich in
natural beauty and important
remains documenting its long
history.
It was founded by the Etruscans around the seventh century BC, grouping around the
core of the Acropolis - today
archaeological site open to the public
- the people of different villages founded several centuries before. Around it
a rampart was later built that survives
today in large tracts and the Etruscan
Arch, the most important monument
of the entire ancient Etruria.
Of the Roman era remain the great
theater, baths and numerous archaeo-
best destination
logical remains. The Guarnacci Museum
preserve many archaeological remains
from the Etruscan and Roman.
The aspect that presents today the city
is medieval with houses towers, churches, palaces that date back to that time,
when the city was one of the most important in Tuscany. Who comes to Volterra can admire the Cathedral (sec.
12th), the Palazzo dei Priori (sec. 13 th),
real museums full of works of art. Other
works are on display at the Civic Gallery
and other museums.
The city Even stands out in the food ,
especially for olive oil, the production of
sheep cheeses, truffles and wine. Significant the recent DOP Pecorino delle
Balze Volterrane. Even quality agriculture is present on the territory with ve-
getables, wheat and honey with many
organic farms and biodynamic.
With all these products it is easy to
achieve even a kitchen of quality and
tradition, with dishes such as the Zuppa,
wild boar stew, Pappardelle with hare,
rabbit, that we found with the traditional
Tuscan dishes in restaurants of Volterra.
THE EVENTS
Volterra is a city rich in events that take
place every year in the historic center.
Among the most important events there is Volterragusto. It is a festival where
we present the main products of the
city and its territory. Protagonists of
the event are the truffles, olive oil,
cheeses, wines, accompanied by a
market where they sold other local
products. Volterragusto takes place
in two editions: in spring at the end
of March and in fall in late October
and early November. Together with
market and tastings there are prizes,
workshops, book presentations and
other cultural moments.
The Summer in Volterra is dominated by the medieval festival Volterra
AD1398, a great event that brings
back the town a few centuries earlier with reconstructions of shops,
markets and settings where hundreds of people in medieval costumes bring to life the Middle Ages
Volterra.
The visitor can easily imagine the
life of that era when passing a few
hours in the midst of sounds, co-

the third and four th Sunday of August
each year. Finally closes the summer of
Volterra, the first Sunday of September,
the Astiludio, a competition between
groups of flag-wavers that every year
sees teams of other cities get to Volterra city.
They contend, in the beautiful setting of
the historic Piazza dei Priori, the Bravio, a plate of alabaster decorated each
year by an artist from Volterra, which is
now one of the most coveted trophies
by the flag weavers of all Italy.

The Emperor Domitian became leader of Rome when he was thirty years old and he ruled with great passion for fifteen years, eventually assassinated by the senators
he had excluded. He left
impor tant traces of his
commitment to beautify
the city with monuments
and buildings for athletic
contests. He completed
the construction of the Colliseum
and the Imperial Baths , then he started the reconstruction of the Circus
Maximus after a fire damage and he
built the self named stadium whose
ruins are still today in Piazza Navona
44
in the historic center of Rome (Unesco Heritage).
The remains of the Stadium of Domitian are in an area situated between
Piazza Navona and Piazza di Tor Sanguigna, around 4.5 metres from street
level. The archaeological area under
the authority of the Sovrintendenza
Capitolina, is all that remains of the
first and only example ever found
until now of a masonry stadium in
Rome. The temporary wooden constructions of Caesar and Augustus,
are among the rare testimonies, along
with that of Pozzuoli (Naples), that
are known outside of Greece and the
Eastern world. The stadium’s capacity was around 30,000
according to Regionari
catalogues but another
calculation
estimates
that 20,000 would have
been more probable.
The structure was built
to celebrate the Capitoline Agone, games
dedicated to Jupiter
Optimus Maximus and
was an imitation of the
Olympic Games which
began in 86 AD when
the games were established. This competition,
like the Olympics took
place every four years
and was dedicated to
Agone athletes who
were of Greek origin.

Other events were added that involved music and equestrian challenges. Presiding over the games was of
course the Emperor wearing a golden crown with an effigy of Jupiter,
Juno and Minerva, dressed in Greek
fashion with a purple toga.
The remains of the Stadium of Domitian construction are derived from
Greek architecture and various par ts
are preserved in the basements of
Piazza Navona; these came to light in
1868, 1869, 1933-34, in 1936-38 and
in 1949-50. The most notewor thy

are still visible under piazza
di Tor Sanguigna, remarkably

masonry structures are one
of the most representative monuments to imperial
Rome.

the nativity scene, spread over an area
of about 30m2 with 200 statues, 140
of them moving, opens onto a crosssection of daily life where the characters,
wearing the traditional costumes, give
life to various activities. There are workshops of potters, weavers, vintners,
blacksmiths, cobblers, all with the ancient
tools of their craft, and also shepherds,
fishermen, women at the market and
playing children. Striking is the succession of night and day with light effects
that begin with a starry sky followed by
the sunrise, the mist rising from the river,
the fire burning and the animated figures until the red sunset with the houses
illuminated inside and the snow falling
down.The nativity scene has been realized thanks to the work of several craftsmen who, over time, have created a

movement of the characters and the
machinery, the careful study of the context in which you insert the realization,
the strict perspective and harmonious
scenic design make the nativity scene
