THE BOND BETWEEN ROME AND WATER
The bond between Rome and water is ancestral, historically linking them from the beginning, not only by the Tiber, on whose banks Rome was born but also by the cult the Romans developed for the thermal baths and the great hydraulic and architectural engineering works for the aqueducts. Today there are more than 2000 fountains in Rome, monumental artworks created by the greatest masters in the history of art. Water has also been a source of inspiration for painters, writers, poets, film directors, musicians, and songwriters. The video briefly describes the relationship between Rome and water and ends where it all began. In less than one year, one of the world’s most beautiful scenarios come alive.
