Rome is a constant inspiration for me, the more I walk around the more I enrich my own perspective and discover a new facet of it.
One day I was wondering around the city center and I noticed there's a lot of hints and clues about cruel stories that have deeply affected the destiny of the city and had consequences on its future.
Traumatic events like violent deaths and brutality generate fear and, by making leverage on our deepest instincts, cause superstition. Some others instead awaken consciences and unleash revolutions.
We will talk about mysteries, intrigues, conspiracies, how they affected the citizens' soul and how they turned their characters into victims of their obscure plots.
This weird heritage gave rise to maxims, ways of saying and anecdotes contributing to form the identity in which the romans mirror themselves. By sharing these unordinary stories you will feel like a real local as it will take you to a deeper level of knowledge of the city and feel part of our community!
