Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

From Ancient to Modern Times: Unique exhibit shows architectural contrasts

2013-07-21

The second stop along the tour is the impressive Temple of Venus and Rome, which the Emperor Adrian ordered built in the year 121 A.D. The monumental Greek-style structure serves as the contrast to the modern artwork surrounding it.

The past and present are also interwoven at the Palatine Hill’s Domitian Stadium. Emperors strolled through its gardens and would welcome guests there. For over three decades, it was closed off to the public, but thanks to the exhibit,  visitors can walk around the gardens of this former Roman circus.

The exhibit, titled “Post-Classics,” renews the interaction between classic and contemporary styles. For the first time ever, the artwork from today is displayed among the remains of what was the Rome’s Imperial Forum.

Visitors to the Eternal City can enjoy the best of both worlds until the end of September. It’s organized by Rome’s Superintendence for the Archeological Heritage, along the Imperial Forum and the Palatine Hill.
