Walking around Rome yesterday was magic! You may want to know why… and here is the answer: it was Natale di Roma!
Natale di Roma (Birth of Rome) is a secular festivity linked to the foundation of the city of Rome, which – according to the legend – happened on April 21, 753 BC by the famous Romolous.
The Roman calendar was highly influenced by the foundation of its major city insomuch that, from this date onwards, years began to be counted starting “from the foundation of the City” or – in Latin – “Ab Urbe condita”.
I am happy to share the photos I took last night while enjoying one of the most beautiful walking areas of the world, between the Coliseum and Piazza Venezia: the Roman and the Imperial Fora.
Get inspired and keep traveling!
