Lungo il Tevere Rome 2014 Edition
The “Lungo il Tevere… Roma” event returns as protagonist of the Roman summer nights until 31 August.
The event, now at its 12th Edition, is being held along the stretch of the Tiber River from the bridge of Ponte Sublicio to that of Ponte Sisto, with a series of bars,cafés, stalls, restaurants, art exhibitions and art installations. A real date with culture, “a river of culture running through the heart of Rome” as written on the poster.
Obviously, the market is the protagonist around which all the other activities are linked: the stalls offering handicraft items, clothing, furniture, vintage and ethnic objects. Around it, there are also stands dedicated to entertainment and restaurants.
As far as the part dedicated to entertainment is concerned, this year’s event includes a long list of concerts – especially pop and jazz – as well as numerous theatrical performances, like the “Tevere Teatro Festival ”, a show of previously unreleased theatrical performances starring young talent from the best theatre companies in Rome.
A large number of exhibitions have been organized. In fact, you will find the dreamlike works of the sculptress Alba Gonzalez, through which she portrays unconscious passions and nightmares, and also the “Maniphesta RomaBruciAncora” exhibition, created to remember Nero’s fire, in which, based on the concept of creative fire, artists speak of the history of Rome and of its future.
Once again this year, the literary competition in Roman dialect returns: “Poeta Saltimbanco” created in memory of the great Franco Califano.
There is no shortage of literary appointments, with book presentations, history lessons, viewings of vintage films telling the history of music, seminaries and round tables on major social topics, art laboratories for adults and children and much more making up the parade of activities that will not fail to impress every tourist.
For those who wish to visit Rome, summer is the ideal time, because of the great variety of events and special offers designed to let you enjoy the Roman summer to the full. In addition, strolling around Rome by night, along the Tiber, is one of the most enchanting pastimes that the city has to offer.
