The permanent collection of the Museo di Roma in Trastevere exhibits the salient aspects of popular life in Rome from the late eighteenth century to the early twentieth century, filtered through the tastes and convictions of the artists and folklorists who represented it. The major themes present in the collection are the costumes, the popular dances, the secular and religious festivals and the crafts.
The Museum of Rome in Trastevere is situated in Piazza Sant’Egidio, in a historic building. Even the Piazza takes its name from the nunnery, which included the small church of Saint Egidio.
The earliest nucleus of the convent was founded in 1601 at the church of Saint Lorenzo on the Janiculum, which was later restored and dedicated to Saint Egidio, as a home for the religious order of Carmelite nuns.
Pensata dall’Associazione daSud, la mostra è uno sguardo inedito e globale sulla rappresentazione delle mafie nella produzione fumettistica che va dal secondo dopoguerra ad oggi.
La mostra pone in relazione 40 inquadrature italiane del celebre fotografo e pittore boemo František Krátký, con altrettanti scatti del contemporaneo e affermato Pavel Kopp.
The exhibition, set up in the newly renovated areas of fifteen-century clostrum inside Roma in Trastevere’s museum, revisits two main guidelines of Andy Rocchelli’s
work between 2009 and 2014, that focused on several most relevant events of that timeframe.
