City

ROMA LIVE.

The dominant colors of Rome’s architecture are white shaded with amber of travertine, able to defeat time, and brick red.

These were also the tones chosen by architect Adam Tihany when designing the Boscolo Aleph in Rome. To see all the other colors of the city (the variegated bronze, gold, silver, blue, ochre and green of the hard stones, the source of the mosaic tiles, the orange of sunset, the copper green of the sediments of fountains of iron water, the grayish blond of the Tiber) you need to go up and down the city on foot several times: in order not to miss Santa Maria degli Angeli, Michelangelo’s Moses, the magnificent Christ by Buonarroti in the Church of Santa Maria sopra Minerva, or Sant’Ignazio with the incredible altar made of inlaid marble; to visit all the most important wonders making Rome the city with more works of art than any other and therefore the heritage of all humankind: from the Colosseum to the Pantheon, from the Trevi Fountain to the many museums and galleries of modern and traditional art.

Despite the fact that the hustle of the city is a bit high, with its chaotic traffic and teeming tourists, Rome is, and always will be, eternally beautiful.
