Cinecittà World

Cinecittà World: a picture of cinematic fun! If you think theme parks are only for kids, then you should definitely pay a visit to Cinecittà World, the fantastic amusement park on the outskirts of Rome that captivates its visitors by catapulting them into the world of film and television. This entertainment paradise, which has the same vibes as Universal Studios in the United States, was opened in Castel Romano in 2014 by the entrepreneurs Luigi Abete, Aurelio De Laurentiis and Diego Della Valle. Ready to dive into the world of the seventh art? A day in Ancient Rome If you’re ready for unbelievable experiences, how about a step back in time? In the Roma World area, you can experience life as an ancient Roman, wearing Roman togas, enjoying lavish banquets and learning how to be real-life gladiators. As you stroll through sets that reproduce Roman streets, markets and environments, you won’t be surprised when you find yourself transported into the world of Ben Hur. You can explore the set of this colossal film starring Charlton Heston that made film history in 1959 and discover all its secrets. A sleepover at a Roman Legion encampment If you’re planning to spend the night at Cinecittà World, there could be no better way to end the day than at a Roman encampment in the middle of the forest: dressed as a Roman legionary, you can eat a delicious meal before hitting the sack, waking up safe and sound in the morning with breakfast on the table, which is always a bonus! Aqua World and the Ice Kingdom As well as original film sets, you can while away the hours in areas of the park that are certainly more traditional but just as entertaining. From the Ice Kingdom, the first indoor snow park in Italy, to the Aqua World water park; from the futuristic-themed theatre screening movies filmed in cities across Italy, to the permanent exhibition featuring over 300 sculptures from 30 films, adverts and television programmes. There is sure to be something for everyone among the 40 attractions, 7 themed areas and 6 staged shows. Born from the ashes of the old studios Cinecittà World is built in an area that shares similarly strong connections with the history of cinema: the Dinocittà film studios previously stood on the same ground, built in the 1960s by Dino De Laurentiis. Theatres and several buildings from the old film studios still stand today, converted to host indoor shows and attractions.
Art & Culture

Jewish Ghetto of Rome

The district of remembrance where you can experience Jewish culture and try traditional Roman Jewish cuisine. Located on Lungotevere de' Cenci, one of the oldest in the world, second only to that of Venice, the Ghetto of Rome was founded in 1555 at the behest of Pope Paul IV. Jews who lived here were required to wear a distinctive sign and could not trade or own real estate. Decommissioned several times, it was finally closed in 1870. In 1904, the Great Synagogue of Rome was inaugurated and even today it is a place of worship but also a reference point for the cultural and social life of the entire community. The Temple is one of the most charming places in the district and inside you can visit the Jewish Museum and the Spanish Temple. In addition to the Synagogue, other monuments of interest are the Church of Sant'Angelo in Pescheria, derived from the ancient fish market, where you can admire the Chapel of St. Andrew or even the Church of San Gregorio in Divina Pietà, in honor of Pope Gregory I who granted freedom of worship to Jews, and the Portico d'Ottavia. In the Ghetto is the Turtle Fountain with four bronze ephebes and dolphins resting on shells and on the edge the four turtles, made by Bernini who completed the work. Strolling through these narrow streets, you will notice that some of the cobblestones are covered with brass plaques, the Memorie d'inciampo, with the names of the deportees who, during the round-up of October 16, 1943, never returned from the extermination camps. This is the ideal place where to enjoy a gastronomy stop where you can taste the typical kosher cuisine but also the traditional Judaic-Roman cuisine such as artichokes "alla giudia", anchovies and endive pie, fish broth and cod fillets.
