Summer has finally come, and Rome is ready for a season rich in any kind of events. The Lungotevere surely is one of the main settings of the summer events in Rome. Let's discover them: they are free.
ALONG THE TIBER: MAIN EVENTS
During the summer, the Lungotevere gets the main stage of the most important events in Rome. Also this year, the manifestation named Lungo il Tevere actually proposes several interesting events to Roman citizens and visitors. This is an important year, as it is the 140th anniversary of the Il Messaggero newspaper, the most important one of the capital: 14 panels celebrating the first most important pages of an historical newspaper telling about the Italian past by their pictures. But this is not the only one event in program: music, theatre, and cinema events will take place every day along the river banks, hosting famous guests to offer great nights to everybody. This year, the event will celebrate its 16th edition: for this reason, every evening, a music show will take place, playing any kind of music, from pop to folk. Thanks to the precious copperation with the Conservatorio di Santa Cecilia, also classic music concerts will take place, during the summer. Many artists will play on the several stages along the Lungotevere, such as Hu Chunxi, Alessandro Muller, and Daniele D'Andrassi. On Saturday evenings, young artists will play, such as Irene Cavalli and Luca Bussoletti. Also the theatre will be an important protagonist, thanks to the shows by Cristiana Vaccaro. There will be also art along the river and several exhibitions of pictures and street art will take place.
TASTE, PHOTO AND HANDICRAFT ALONG THE TIBER
Food surely is one of the most important protagonists of the Lungotevere summer. There are several stands offering a rich selection of street and typical food. The aim is to involve spectators in a complete Roman landscape, departing from the discovery of the river - important protagonist of the city life - to the pleasures of the traditional Roman food. Some stands will propose the typical street food, but others will let you have a sit and choose your favourite food by the menu they offer you to spend the perfect evening. There are also stands selling handicraft products, so you can get lost among them and they are trendy accessories for anybody. Art will play an important role, too: emerging but also famous artists we'll show their pictures, such as the famous Emilio Gentilini whose pictures describe Rome from 1970 to 1975. So the summer along the Lungotevere is a perfect mix of flavours, perfumes, and pictures making you happy of your time spent there.
