Although this year the weather is acting up and summer is late, the organizers of the initiatives that have been populating Roman nights for years don’t lose their heart. The calendar, like every year, is full of concerts, theater shows, film events, guided tours, etc. organized to welcome tourists and locals, allowing them to spend pleasant outdoor nights. The evocative Roman beauties will contribute enriching the settings.
How this event came to life?
The first edition of Roman Summer, an event organized by the Roman municipality, date back to 1977 thanks to the initiative of the then councilor for Culture, architect Renato Nicolini. The initiative aimed to give citizens of all social classes the opportunity to take part in cultural and entertainment events organized in public spaces; this was exactly the reason that determined the initiative success.
Rome is an open air museum which offer alone enough scenarios to create the right atmosphere for any event.
Roman Summer 2018
The initiative success has continued over the years raising constantly, and the initiatives have multiplied and enriched with original ideas to grant the entertaining, socialization and the amusement of both adults and kids.
From the 1st of June the forty first edition of this event has begun, which will continue until September 30th. The various initiatives take place both in the city center and in the suburbs, with a program rich of perspectives, cinema, music, workshops, artistic initiatives, guided tours and much more.
They range from the classic open air screening of movies, to concerts and theatrical performances. But there are also more original choices such as multidisciplinary festivals or the use of an Ape Car, the Aperossa, equipped to set up outdoor arenas in different municipalities of the city.
It is possible to enjoy theatrical guided tours to discover the enchanted places of Rome, having actors in the guise of historical figures as guides.
Space is also given to experimentation, with artistic initiatives that see art and new technologies as protagonists.
The initiatives are really a lot and you’ll have plenty to chose from!
