I/ Introduction to the project

Experiencing Rome

Rome, the „eternal city“ – this title is not only a reference to Rome’s 2773 years since its founding, but also a hint to the many layers of time that we can encounter here simultaneously. The city’s urban development since antiquity is not a completed process, as one might assume, but endures even within the ancient Aurelian Walls. Whether we wander the indirectly lit streets, stroll on the Sanpietrini-paved squares, listen to the dabbling of the numerous fountains that run since antiquity or move along the Renaissance artists’ paths: Every locations tells its story in a unique way and contributes to the history of the city which is firmly connected to the history of European culture.
