Alberto Sordi 1920-2020
from 16 September 2020 to 31 January 2021
Piazzale Numa Pompilio

To list all of Sordi's films would be impossible. Hundreds of masterpieces that made us laugh, move, reflect.

Bocca della verità
Piazza della Bocca della Verità, 18

The Mouth of Truth is the ancient mask, probably an ancient sewer cover, with a diameter of 1.80 meters, walled in the wall of the pronaos of Santa Maria i

Circo Massimo

Mitreo dell'Ara Massima di Ercole (Mitreo del Circo Massimo)

Terme di Caracalla
Viale delle Terme di Caracalla, 52

A custom of the ancient Romans’ daily routine was a visit to the baths.

A refined and elegant district, Aventino is known for its extremely beautiful medieval churches and its Rose Garden (Roseto Comunale),  although mainly for its Orange Grove and the most famous “Keyhole” in the world.

The Orange Grove (Giardini degli Aranci) is a splendid former monastic orchard enclosed by walls offering a truly breath-taking panorama, while the Keyhole gives a wonderful furtive peep straight onto St. Peter’s itself!

Moving slightly southwards, the Caracalla Baths(Terme di Caracalla) unfurls before us, whose famous ruins over the summer forms the sumptuous backdrop for the staging of famous operas.

For sports enthusiasts, nothing could be more pleasant than jogging through the tree-lined Viale delle Terme di Caracalla. As for the romantics among you and those “with serious intentions”, there is the gorgeous deconsecrated little church of Santa Maria in Tempulo, where civil marriages are celebrated.

What about the night-lifers? Rest assured: there is a brand now top spot  “L’Aranciera” (located next to the home of the late, great Italian Film Actor Alberto Sordi), which is a favourite for both formal evenings and for the “clubbers” among you.
