Happy Birthday Rome!!
In honor of Rome’s birthday, on Sunday (closest to Rome’s Birthday) historic groups from all over Italy (and abroad) representing Ancient Rome’s different eras from the pre-Roman Etruscans, to Imperial Rome and Barbarians who sacked it, gather for a parade that begins in Circus Maximus, travels through Piazza Venezia and along Via dei Fori Imperiali, encircles the Colosseum and returns back to Circus Maximus.
The events don’t end here: after the parade, prepare for an afternoon of spectacular shows inside the Circus Maximus from gladiator fights, ancient funeral ceremonies, dancing, music andbattle reenactments.
On April 21 you can expect evening celebrations taking place on Via dei Fori Imperiali.
In 2011 a live orchestra and reciting of historical events (and special tribute to the beatification of Pope John Paul II) accompanied an impressive light show against the walls of the ancient Trajan’s Market.
