“Wonderful church, not to miss the Cloister and the Oratory of St. Silvestro (to visit them you need to ask for the key to the nuns). If you have the chance also the Aula Gotica but is open only occasionally”

“The Domus Aurea ("Golden House" in Latin, precisely because a lot of this precious metal was used in it) was the urban villa built by the Roman emperor Nero after the great fire that devastated Rome in 64 AD. The destruction of a large part of the urban center allowed the princeps to expropriate a total area of about 80 hectares and build a palace that stretched between the Palatine, the Esquiline and the Celio. The villa, probably never completed, was destroyed after Nero's death following the restitution of the land on which it stood to the Roman people. The surviving part of the Domus Aurea, hidden by the successive baths of Trajan, like the whole historic center of Rome, the extraterritorial areas of the Holy See in Italy and the basilica of San Paolo fuori le mura, has been included in the list of World Heritage Sites. by UNESCO in 1980.”

“Defined as the "mother of all the churches in the world", the Basilica of San Giovanni in Laterano represents the ideal trait d’union between the pagan era and the Christian era. Born, in fact, as a building for public meetings and for the administration of justice, with the spread of the new creed it is transformed into a majestic ecclesiastical structure, suitable for hosting a large number of faithful. The Basilica stands on the same site as the basilica built by Constantine, around 314, on land formerly owned by the noble Lateran family, from which the whole area takes its name. Repeatedly damaged and restored, the basilica was continuously enriched over the centuries. The facade, built between 1732 and 1735 by Alessandro Galilei, is a prelude to the magnificent interior designed by Borromini, to which Pope Innocenzo X Pamphilj, in view of the Jubilee of 1650, entrusted the reconstruction. The overall layout with five naves was nevertheless preserved. Inside, the original apse mosaic, by Jacopo Torriti, made for the Jubilee of 1300, has been replaced with a modern copy, while the sixteenth-century coffered ceiling of the median nave is preserved; finally, between 1884 and 1886, the presbytery and apse were completely rebuilt. If you are here, the museum is certainly worth a visit, which contains precious liturgical furnishings, and the cloister, a masterpiece of Cosmatesque art where architectural elements, sculptures and ornaments of the ancient basilica are preserved.”
