Roman Walks with the Capitoline Superintendence: the June schedule

from 20 May 2024 to 20 June 2024

Moving to the rhythm of one’s own steps is the best way to get to know a city, which is often hidden behind busy streets, and allow oneself the luxury of discovering details and glimpses, unusual and curious places, not infrequently unknown. You wander aimlessly, being guided by the suggestion of the moment and totally immersing oneself in the local atmosphere, or rely on expert guides. Like those, for example, of the Capitoline Superintendence who, even in the month of June, accompany us to discover Rome and the small and great wonders that make the Eternal City even more fascinating than the most iconic and flashy ones.

Monuments, places and spaces of the city, known and less known, from the Middle Ages to contemporary times, are in fact the protagonists of the program of itineraries of the Passeggiate Romane - Roman Walks organized in collaboration with Zètema Progetto Cultura and free participation with compulsory reservation at Contact Center 060608. In small groups, during the month of June we will thus be able to discover the Ardeatino Bastion, built by Antonio da Sangallo in 1536 on the orders of Pope Paul III, which offers a bucolic view of what the Roman countryside must have been like and bears the traces of the demolitions of the Spina di Borgo in 1939; the medieval Torre del Papito in largo di Torre Argentina; and the 15th-century Casina del Cardinal Bessarione along Via di Porta San Sebastiano.

Two walks will be translated in Italian Sign Language-LIS, thanks to the collaboration of the Department of Social Policies and Health (Personal Services Directorate) and the non-profit social cooperative Segni di Integrazione – Lazio. An itinerant route will guide us through the streets of the historic district of Tor Pignattara, the scene in recent years of important interventions that have transformed it into one of the main sites of Roman street art, while the extraordinary opening of the interior of the Porta del Popolo will include the panoramic terrace overlooking the square of the same name below, the Trident and the Via Flaminia.
