    Centenario Garbatella: "Traces. Trees remember"From 18 to 20 December, Piazza Benedetto Brin
    The visitor, equipped with an audio guide, will make a journey through time accompanied by the voices of three women whose lives were fatally intertwined on 7 April 1944 at the Ponte dell’Industria, a crossroads between the Ostiense and Portuense districts. Three women who loved, lived and fought in Garbatella.
    The path will wind through ten trees, each of which will tell a story linked to the memories of women that the symbolic places of the neighborhood arouse in them. A journey made up not only of voices, but also of images thanks to the comparison between archive photos and today"s photos taken by photographer Massimo Stancanelli.
    Event is free with reservations required on the Eventbrite website (

    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. )

    Jonathan Vivacqua - Useless workUntil December 22nd, Galleria White Noise Gallery , Via dei Marsi, 20/22
    The works on display tell with biting sarcasm and melancholy two sides of the same coin: the dignity of fatigue and work perceived as an aseptic tool.The path begins with a classical-inspired mosaic generated by thousands of spacers for laying the floors. an exhausting process that emphasizes the time-productivity dichotomy. The need for more time to do a job is considered a negative. Once completed, the writing "Useless work" stands out on the work: it is therefore itself that declares itself with ironic resignation.
    Timetable : from 11:00 to 19:00 (from Tuesday to Friday)
    from 16:00 to 20:00 (Saturday)
