I don't mind travelling a bit to see something outside Rome.

It is often said that the one thing we learn from #History is that we never learn from history.
I’ve just watched the first episode in the #BBC mini-series on Julius Caesar. As usual with TV history, they gloss over some points, but the main message is clear. There are a lot of not very subtle, and some very overt, comparisons to modern day populist #Politics, and some trolling by the writers who use phrases like, “Billionaire celebrities” and “Take back control”.
It’s certainly painting a very dark picture of Caesar which may not be entirely fair, but does make for some fascinating comparisons with the modern day.

On our podcast, we love telling stories about what happens when good film making turns bad.

In this episode, we deep dive into the making of the infamous monstrosity "CALIGULA".

They didn't just make a crap movie, they made a crap porno, too. That was harder to do than it looked.

San Clemente is probably my favourite church in Rome. It's modestly decorated compared to similarly important sites and you can time travel to Imperial Rome just by going downstairs; visit a mithraeum, buildings which were probably part of the imperial mint and an underground river.

It's the Day of Selene / Luna's Day / #Monday! 🌛

#Diana-Selene wears a crescent-moon ornament in her hair and a torch in her right hand, attributes characteristic of the moon goddess. The statue has been found near the Porta San Sebastiano.

Diana-Selene, personification of the Moon, is wearing a sleeveless, high-girded chiton, which gathers on her breasts and legs revealing her figure, and then gathers at the hem and in the folds that fall alongside her, pushed by the impetus of the movement.
Around her shoulders, there is also a himation, which in the typical iconography of flying figures billows up like a sail behind the goddess.

Did you know that an old #folk #tale has been around since the #Romans?

Androcles was a runaway #slave who helped a #lion with a thorn in its paw. The lion becomes friendly & shares its kill.

When Androcles is re-captured by #Ancient #Rome, he's condemned to #die. When he faces his fate, the lion sent to kill him turns out to be HIS lion.

#Emperor Caligula lets him & the lion go.

This story resurfaced in the #MiddleAges, the #Victorian Age & is still being used as recently as 2010.

This is a print of the tale of Androcles & the Lion.

it shows a bald, older man crouching on the forest floor. he wears a toga and nothing else.

He is hugged from the back by a big lion. The animal has large claws and an impressive mane.

Androcles is holding one of the lion's claws and pulls out of obvious thorn, like that of a rose.

The lion is hauling in pain.

16 October 1943 | Raid of the Ghetto of Rome.

365 German security & police forces sealed off the ghetto. 1,259 people were detained, comprising 363 men, 689 women, and 207 children. Afterwards, non-Jewish people were released while the Jews were detained at the Collegio militare in the Palazzo Salviati in Trastevere.

Two days later, a transport of 1,035 Jews left Tiburtina station and left towards Auschwitz.

Only fifteen men and one woman survived the war.

Photos at the Vatican

After the crowds have gone on a cold November day in 2017, I visited St. Peter’s Square in the Vatican for some photos, and came across two women taking advantage of the quiet for some photos.

The sun had already set, and it wasn’t 5pm yet, but it was nice to be in such a normally crowded area with hardly anyone about.

Rome. Some roofs (?rooves?). Ceilings anyway. Always look up.

1. Santa Maria at the Baths of Diocletian
2. The over-the-top roof over the crossing of the Gesu, home church of the Jesuits
3. The ceiling of Sant Agnese fuori le mura
4. The mosaic ceiling over the outer ring of Santa Costanza.

Did you know that the Romans' favourite #snack went #extinct?

Besides honey & grape juice, meals in #Ancient #Rome were flavoured with imported dates from Judea (#Israel).

Date palm fronds were symbolic of #success - lawyers pinned them to their doors & generals wore special "toga palmata".

Judean dates were also shelf-stable & delicious.

Sadly, by the 19th c., they had vanished.

Except for a few 2000-year-old seeds.

They were successfully germinated in 2020.

#history #food

This is a photo collage of six images showing the six seeds of the Judean date palm that researchers have successfully germinated in 2020.

The images show plant pots with seedlings ranging from about 30cm to a good metre in height.

The plants are green and have feathered palm fronds, with a considerable width.

I finished Ovid's Metamorphoses last night. (McCarter translation)

I expected mythology but I was surprised by the amount of magic. Like, woman with wild hair in the woods at night with a wand and cauldron, mixing herbs and casting spells.

I guess I had associated that with more Germanic (Grimm fairy tales) literature. Apparently a lot of that imagery comes from Rome.

The Roman Colosseum's underground, is a hidden marvel beneath the iconic amphitheater. This labyrinthine of tunnels was once a hive of activity, housing gladiators, animals, and props. Understanding the workings below further defines the Colosseum as one of history's most magnificent architectural wonders.

🔛 #Exhibition : 15 Sept.- 4 Nov. 2023 - Website:

Photography and Art. A color photo of a photo installation in a room of a gallery. You can see a room like a Roman palazzo with columns, arches and frescoes. On the floor there are black and white checkered tiles. In this ancient masonry, street artist and photographer JR has placed a floor installation of a black and white photo to make the actual photo like this. A deep crack goes through the floor of the room and extends to the wall, where some Roman buildings can be seen. To make the illusion perfect, a real man in a black suit jumps over this crack. Both this photo and the photo of the crack are works of art that are exhibited like this in various galleries.
"Ferita" is JR's first solo exhibition in Rome. It gathers for the first time works from the artist's biggest and most iconic anamorphosis. Anamorphosis - the technique of distorting an image in such a way that it becomes recognizable only when viewed from a specific angle.

I wrote about our plans for a #summer #vacation to #Greece without airtravel a while ago. I'd said I wanted to put my money and effort where my mouth is.

Now I wanted to add a follow-up, but the original post is already gone. My fault for setting auto-deletion to 3 months.

Two adults and two children travelled from #Vienna 🇦🇹 to #Corfu 🇬🇷 and back via #Italy 🇮🇹 , with some sightseeing in #Ancona, Corfu Town, #Brindisi, and #Rome without using any cars or airplanes. I had bought additional travel insurance for missed connections, but we didn't need that.

Itinerary: Tram, #Nightjet sleeper, bus, #ferry, bus, bus, (hotel stay with occasional outings by bus), bus, bus, ferry, shuttle bus, bus, (hotel), #Frecciargento train, (hotel, metro and bus for #sightseeing), #Frecciarossa train, Nightjet sleeper, metro. (Busses means regular public transit busses on numbered lines that the locals also take.)

Every single vehicle everywhere had working air condition. They were clean and on time, and all the longer trips had tasty food. There's power outlets everywhere. The Frecciarossa (red arrow) between Rome and #Bologna only got to 250 km/h, not the 300 we were hoping to see, but that was the only slightest disappointment.

The ferries are not at all climate-friendly. I have not found a number for how much #CO² for a crossing, but they are similar to cruise ships. The trips are far shorter than cruises of course, but we see and smell the black smoke from the stacks. It's wrong to feel smug about taking a ferry instead of an airplane. All the busses had #combustion engines. All the trains/metros/trams were #electric, so that depends on the grid. The Austrian ÖBB prides itself on using only "green" #electricity.

We enjoyed the trip very much. I am unsure about any future travel. I would totally do this again in terms of comfort and experiences. But my goals for how much I hope to not pollute and damage the world for my pleasure have changed. I have no answers right now.
