Trastevere: the flag of the Roman authenticity

Trastevere is the most characteristic and “Roman” neighbourhood of Rome (13th rione of the city): historical churches and alleys, between the Gianicolo hill and the Tiber. It is the place to eat and to drink: the concentration of restaurants, typical “Trattorias” and “Pizzerias” is just amazing. The atmosphere is charming and relaxing, even if might be a little bit crowded on the week-ends. In the very heart of the neighbourhood the Church of Santa Maria in Trastevere, a real treasure, with its nice and alive Piazza. If you want to have an authentic knowledge of Rome you cannot miss this neighbourhood, its controlled mess, its colours and its noise.

The name is Latin: Trans Tiberim, meaning "beyond the Tiber", since it was right on the other side of the original settlement of the ancient Rome

A hidden treasure in Rome right behind the Pantheon

Right behind the Pantheon, missed by the most of distracted tourists, a small tresure is hold in Rome in a small square called Piazza della Minerva. Cosidered the Bernini's most original invention, a small elephant (“Elefantino”) serves as the support of an Egyptian obelisk right in front of the only Gotic church in Rome called Santa Maria Sopra Minerva, a church that, with its electric blue vaulting, keeps other treasures like the Michelangelo's Cristo Risorto (Christ Bearing the Cross).

At the base of the elephant statue, which is definitely too small in relation to the size of the obelisk which is supporting, a latin inscription says: “Robustae mentis esse solidam sapientiam sustinere”, saying to everybody that the elephant is the symbol of the “strong mind”, which is the only condition to bear a “great wisdom”.

Enjoy this secret corner of Rome.
