Sleepless Night at the Roman Forum

Fori pedonali-3

Rome has recently elected a new mayor Ignazio Marino, who has brought back the beloved tradition of the the Notte Bianca (White Night), a sleepless night where museums and shops stay open until late for citizens to enjoy temselves and celebrate their city.

This time the White Night will take place August 3, to celebrate the beginning of a project whose aim is to turn the Fori Imperiali into a gigantic archeological park, so most of the action will take place near or around that area: acrobats, Shakespeare plays, music and even a tightrope walker who will walk above the ruins of the forum! Definitely an occasion not to be missed !
