The musicality of the Italian language


Maria Callas

We often here say, especially by foreigners, that Italian is characterized by an innate musicality that makes this language wonderfully pleasant to listen to. Many argue that our language sounds almost like a song and proves likeable and gentle. They are, of course, judgments that often stem from personal taste and are very difficult to evaluate on an objective basis.

Since the days of the Roman Empire, the capitol city has been divided by the authorities in different areas – known in Latin as regiones – that over time have increased in number, thus following the city’s expansion. This happened on a regular basis until 1921, when a total of 22 different districts were defined. As one can guess, the very term “district” comes from the Latin original epithet, of which it is a vulgarization. Each district has its own […]

Is Rome is the city of love?


audrey hepburn - Bocca della verità

The anagram of Roma (Rome) is Amor (Love). Is it just a coincidence or Rome has a destiny in its name? Certainly, so far, Paris, the Ville Lumière, the romantic city par excellence, has always held on tightly to the title of the city of love, where feelings bloom just like that and where couples in love can get lost in a romantic experience among picturesque neighbourhoods, bridges and the Tour Eiffel. Rome, despite its undeniable charm and some of […]
