    Free walking tour: Trastevere, Isola Tiberina and Jewish Ghetto

    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.

    They tend, with their artistic research, to recover a unity with the primordial part of the universe, with the cycles of the earth and the regenerative capacity of life. Sergio Vecia re-elaborates his discoveries through the photographic medium: observes with amazement, fascinated by mysterious and ineffable presence and the enigmas of almost alien and alien forms. Alberta Piazza knows the passing of the seasons, the life that dies and regenerates itself: with her own hands she caresses its preciousness and inevitability for survival, at every rising and disappear of the sun.
