The Capitoline Geese

posted by admin in Curiosity

Among the Seven Hills of Rome, the Capitol is certainly the most famous, known as the nerve cente of daily life in ancient Rome. Someone may not know that this hill is also the home of many events where historical and legendary protagonists meet.
One of the most popular legends of Rome refers to the sacred geese living on the Capitol Hill, in the temple dedicated to the mother of the gods.
The story goes that in 390 b. C., when Rome was fighting against the invasion of the Gauls, Roman citizens who were in town had to face hunger and isolation, and the soldiers who guarded The City had no other place to spend the night but the temple of Juno.
One night a former consul Marcus Manlius, who was sleeping together with the army, he heard the geese honking, immediately got up and ran to the walls of the fortress and found one of the Gauls who tried to climb the rock of the hill, confronted him and tore his fingers. Meanwhile, the geese who kept squawking, woke the whole army, which finally defeated the invaders.

posted by admin in Photos

CommonCraft has created an effective video in which explains the advantages of sharing photos online.
Very often without thinking about leaving the only available copy of our cherished photos in our computer, ignoring the fact that a disk can break and sometimes it is impossible to recover the data.

Last June my laptop was stolen,  I lost all the pictures of the last 4 or 5 holidays, including Santo Domingo and New York.

It ‘been so sad to say that my photos of our vacation… no longer existed, especially to her… she loves, and asked me, the old classic paper photo album!
… I had to promise that we would be back soon to New York to shoot again the photos!
Whether New York or Rome is… the advice is to save your photos online using services like Flickr

Dal rosso Trevi alla quadricromia…From Trevi Red to four color…

Graziano Cecchini, autore della ormai nota opera d’arte futurista ‘La Fontana di Trevi in Rosso’, si ripropone con Trinità dei Monti nell’opera che potremmo chiamare ‘Piazza di Spagna… che palle’, ieri infatti ha liberato circa mezzo milione di palline colorante giù per la più famosa scalinata di Roma.
Graziano Cecchini, author of the popular work of art futurist ‘The Fountain of Trevi in Red’, again with Trinità dei Monti in which we could call ‘Square Spain … That balls’, yesterday it has released nearly half a million balls dye down to the most famous Spanish Steps in Rome.


Cecchini prima di seguire gli agenti di polizia per gli accertamenti di rito trova il tempo di spiegare alla stampa, tempestivamente accorsa, le ragioni della sua opera d’arte (vaghe denuncie sociali) ed i suoi ringraziamenti allo sponsor che ha investito 20000 euro in questa operazione… inoltre promette che presto visiterà Parigi!
Divertiti i passanti sopratutto i bambini, meno gli spazzini che hanno dovuto pulire tutto…

Cecchini first to follow the police officers for the findings of ritual takes time to explain to the press, promptly come, the reasons for its artwork (vague complaints social) and his thanks to the sponsors who invested in this 20000 euro operation … Also promises that soon will visit Paris!
Enjoy passers especially children, minus sweepers who have had to clean everything …


Rimane tutto il dubbio sulla legittimità di queste incursioni ‘Futuriste’, anche se bisogna riconoscere queste palline hanno colorato una roma grigia e piovosa regalando un sorriso a tanti passanti, se poi questa è arte non lo sappiamo…

It remains throughout the doubt on the legality of these raids’ Futuriste ‘, although we must recognize these balls have a roma colored gray and rainy giving a smile to many passers. Is this art?
