LUX IN ARCANA – IN THE VATICAN SECRET ARCHIVES REVEALED

Lux Arcana in RomeIt will be the first and possibly only time in history that will cross the confines of Vatican City. And they do so to be welcomed and exposed in the beautiful halls of the Capitoline museums in Rome. It is original and 100 documents chosen among the priceless treasures that the Vatican Secret Archives preserve and protect for centuries.
The exhibition organized on the occasion of the fourth centenary from the foundation of the Vatican Secret Archives to explain and tell what is and how does the Archive of the Popes and, at the same time, make the invisible visible and allow access to some wonders so far kept in approximately 85 km linear shelves of the Vatican Secret Archives; will be exhibited extraordinary historical value documents, covering a time span ranging from the 8th century AD until the 20th century.
The title “Lux in arcana” communicates the main objective of the exhibition: the light that filters into the recesses of the archive illuminates a reality out of a superficial knowledge, but accessible only through direct contact and concrete with sources, which for the first time opens its doors to discover the history, sometimes unpublished, narrated in the documents. The exhibition will be enriched with multimedia productions, led by a strict as engaging historical narrative, to allow the visitor to enjoy some famous events of the past and “revive” documents, which you will with the tale of the background and the characters involved.

The document-chosen from among 100 codes and scrolls, files and records and manuscripts-will remain on display for about seven months, from March 1 to September 2012, at the Capitoline museums.

A prestigious venue, chosen to host this memorable event that underscores the deep connection between the city of Rome and the papacy since the medieval age; the sensitivity for the arts of Sixtus IV bind the origins of both institutions involved in the event, but at the same time the history kept in the Vatican Secret Archives is intertwined with the history of Italy, Europe and the whole world.

The Vatican Secret Archives constitutes a cultural heritage that has as its epicenter the city of Rome. That is why the exhibition was organized in collaboration with the capital Rome, Department of Policies and Culture, Historical Center – Superitendence of Cultural Heritage of Rome and Zètema Culture Project.
This memorable exhibition is already creating a huge expectation, nourished by the mysterious charm that the Vatican Secret Archives raises in the collective imagination.
All this will do Lux arcana-in the Vatican Secret Archives revealed a scientific value and unprecedented media.

Spending your Christmas in Rome

Christmas in Rome 2012Rome is a top Italian city to visit during the Christmas holiday season and the place where the celebration of Christmas originated. The first Christmas mass was said at the Church of Santa Maria Maggiore and the earliest known permanent nativity was created for the Rome Jubilee in 1300.

Highlights of the season are the Papal Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve, and the Pope reading his Christmas message in the piazza in front of St. Peter’s at noon on Christmas Day. In St. Peter’s Square there is also a famous life-size nativity scene.

As well as the grand display outside St Peter’s, and a smaller effort in Piazza Navona, other nativity scenes (presepi) can be seen in most of Rome’s churches. These are important destinations for Italian visitors, and it’s worth inspecting one or two. Some have fascinating details, and even feature day-into-night lighting effects. There is also a large exhibition of presepi in the Sala del Bramante by Piazza del Popolo (admission charge).

At the Christmas Market in Piazza Navona you can buy the components for your own nativity scene, as well as sweets, wooden toys and all sorts of Christmas-related ornaments and goodies. Shoppers can marvel at the elaborate additions to nativity scenes, from working waterfalls to moving bakery scenes (in which the bakers look suspiciously like pizza chefs).

Those interested in Christmas shopping will find the main shopping streets sparkling with festive lights and packed with shoppers. Groups of busking musicians, often dressed as Santas, play cheerful seasonal tunes. Many shops lay down red carpeting on the pavements and the last few years have seen an invasion of large inflatable Santa Clauses. As well as the Christmas lights, a giant Christmas tree appears in the centre of town, in Piazza Venezia or by the Colosseum.

Rome is full of good places to buy presents: hundreds of little food shops are packed with goodies to take home. Other good Roman gifts include gloves and accessories (try the shops around the Spanish Steps) and kitsch souvenirs (anywhere near the Vatican).

An unforgettable Christmas begins with Scott House Hotel!
Located in the centre of Rome, Hotel Scott House a 3 star hotel, enjoys a privileged location from which to explore the city and its best attractions and monuments: Colosseo, Fori Imperiali, Piazza Venezia, Fontana di Trevi …

Homo sapiens. The great history of human diversity

Homo sapiens RomeStill asking yourself these various questions regarding the evolution theory: when and where did we evolve? How have human societes spread across the continets? How have cultural innovations affected the growth and spread of population? What is the connection between genes and languages … Cavalli-Sforza and others have answered these questions.

Two hundred thousand years ago Homo sapiens began the journey from a small valley in what is today’s Ethiopia that led him to colonize the entire planet and to live with other human species, forming the great variety of peoples and cultures that we know. For the first time, an international group of scientists from different disciplines and coordinated by Luigi Luca Cavalli-Sforza, has reconstructed the roots and routes of human settlement. Geneticists, linguists, anthropologists and paleo-anthropologists have combined the results of their research into a wonderful fresco of the history of human evolution.
The result is Homo sapiens.The great history of human diversity, an international interactive and multimedia exhibition made up of six sections telling the stories of the adventures and extraordinary travels, largely unknown, which generated the mosaic of human diversity.

How to arrive: Underground metro A (get off at Repubblica) metro B (get off at Cavour) / Bus 40 – 64 – 70 – 71 – 117 – 101 – H (BUS STOP Nazionale/Palazzo Esposizioni)
