    Free walking tour: Trastevere, Isola Tiberina and Jewish Ghetto
    To discover some historic districts of the city, where time seems to stand still.
    Trastevere, ancient area of ??residence of the Etruscan population on the right bank of the Tiber. Crossing the river you will stop on the Tiber Island before reaching the Jewish quarter, where Rome still hosts the oldest Jewish community in the diaspora. Strolling through the narrow alleys of the district will allow you to jump back in time when the area was considered one of the poorest and most unhealthy in the city although not without evidence of a glorious past. After the period of imprisonment, subsequent emancipation and persecutions, the district has in fact turned into one of the trendiest areas of the capital, frequented by both tourists and Romans attracted by the many restaurants that serve the characteristic dishes of Jewish-Roman cuisine.
    Duration of the tour: 2 hours and 30 minutes

    Booking (The reservation is free and only serves to book and join the group, once the tour is over you decide how much to pay. )

    The exhibition, which sees Ellen Wolf, Ludovica Baldini and Roberta Ubaldi as protagonists, is characterized by a powerful and engaging sensory and perceptive communication force that emerges and is revealed through the chromatic energy, the power of the various mediums and the images evoked. . The works reflect on the concept of time, randomness and fleetingness of the traces. Works in transition, explored through different techniques such as painting, photographic prints, video installations made using mixed materials and supports, quite different from each other, which create a unique communion.
