The 10 Roman itineraries described in this guide will take us on a journey through time from ancient Rome to the present day passing through the Middle Ages and the Baroque era, showing us different faces of the capital: the illustrations taken from Les aventures d’Alix will accompany us ( partly designed specifically for this guide), a popular Franco-Belgian comic series born from the pen of the great French cartoonist Jacques Martin, appreciated for the accurate reconstructions of places and life in ancient Rome. A temple, the detail of a facade, scenes of daily life, Baroque palaces: from the illustrations and texts Rome will reveal itself with its metamorphoses over the centuries, suggesting how the city owes much of its present-day charm to its great past. We will go to the discovery of the most fascinating places and districts of today’s Rome, that of fountains and hidden cloisters, the papal splendors and the popular and social life of Trastevere: an inscription or an unknown alley will reveal the secrets of the eternal city between the past and present, between history and fantasy.
