The Colosseum of Rome  and  Rome Eternal city

‘Rome does not need to make culture. It is culture’ those were the words of the Italian film director Federico Fellini. He was right that’s why Rome is known as the eternal city.

When thinking of Rome and films who can forget the famous scene of the  film La Dolce Vita with Anita Ekberg and Marcello Mastroianni on the Trevi Fountan, or Roman Holiday with Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck with the scene of the Bocca  della verita’(mouth of Truth)

The Colosseum, is without a doubt one of the most famous Roman monuments. In 2007 to the Romans pleasure and pride has become one of the Seven Marvels of the Modern World. 

The breathtaking Colosseum in 70-72AD was three times bigger than what we have left today.

There are many stories about the name, but the one that I want to share with you is the most beautiful one. Once upon a time… there was a temple on the same spot, this temple was dedicated to Isis, ancient goddess of maternity and fertility. The place was called Collis Isei, with means from Latin the hill of Isis.

Ferrara 

The relaxing and beautiful city of Ferrara seems like hasn’t changed much since one of the most powerful and influential European family the d’Este reigned.

Many are the historical city attractions, like the main attraction Castello Estense, Palazzo Schifanoia, Palazzo dei Diamanti, Duomo of San Giorgio.

A romantic film that shows the beautiful Ferrara is Beyond the cloud ( Al di la’ delle nuvole). The film consist in four stories of romantic love.

If you love history and feel like you want to step back in time Ferrara is the city for that.
