Experience Rome’s Art And Culture Through Outdoor Storytelling

Art, literature, history. Rome is the perfect setting for any show combining these elements. How many times, walking around Rome, you wondered which stories took place along the ancient roads, inside the decadent palaces, around the old fountains and in the middle of the romantic squares? From July 14 until mid-September the Falene Association will tell you in their new English-language storytelling show “Strolling stories”.  Reading Stendhal’s “Italian chroniques” excerpts from his Rome trip, they will lead you to original sites of the stories, to the narrow streets and wild adventures of Caravaggio’s time, unveiling the real heart of Rome and her fascinating private stories.  Every Wednesday at 7:30 pm starting from Piazza de Cenci, in the Jewish Ghetto, every Thursday at 7:30 pm starting from via San Francesco a Ripa, in Trastevere. Ticket price: 10€. For further information and reservations contact: strolling.stories@gmail.com

And if you are interested in ancient Rome stories and characters, then you can’t miss the free 40-minute show by the Miracle Players every Friday until August 6 at 7:30 pm in front of the Carcere Mamertino, at the Roman Forum. The play encapsulates some of the funnier moments from previous years’ performances and draws its inspiration from the writings of Suetonius, Plutarch, Livy, Cicero, Shakespeare and of course Monty Python. The historical made hysterical!
