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”.

The 'normal' side of Cleopatra on display at Egyptian exhibit in Rome

2013-10-28

October 27, 2013 (Romereports.com) Shewas the world's first celebrity, perhaps the most famous queen of alltime. Just her name, Cleopatra, evokes many stories and legends: theheavy eye make up; milk baths; her affair with Julius Caesar


Allthose stories are clear proof the fascination with the last Queen ofEgypt remain to this day. But a new exhibit titled Cleopatra, shows adifferent side to this legendary woman. 

GIOVANNIGENTILI 
 Art Historian 
"Theexhibit on Cleopatra shows off, for the first time in the world, themonarch in her everyday look, more in a Greek style. So it's thequeen, but far from the magnificence and the majestic Cleopatra we'reused to seeing on the big screen, with the unforgettable LizTaylor.”

Theexhibit features a few pieces displayed for the first time ever,including two head busts of a younger Cleopatra, with her hair pulledback and a tiara. The pieces came from private art collections allover the world. But the Egyptian queen wasn't just a seductivemonarch, she was also a mother. 

Inaddition to the Queen herself, the exhibit also shows off thecultural wealth of her kingdom. Murals and paintings depict themighty Nile River and itswildlife.Egyptian gods and deities sculpted in precious metals. Traditionaljewelry decorated with gemstones. Their wealth unleashed one of theworld's first fashion trends. 

GIOVANNIGENTILI 
Art Historian 
"Egyptomaniawas an uncontrollable passion for everything Egyption, which tookplace especially after Octavian Augustus conquered Egypt in 30 B.C.Rome was fascinated by the incredible wealth of that mysteriousworld.” 

Artand history are commonly intertwined. This exhibit narratesCleopatra's life. From her birth and reign, to her love affairs anddownfall. Her power and influence threatened the existence of theRoman Empire. Whathappened to her after the Romans defeated her is still up for debate.But it's safe to say that without Cleopatra, the Roman Empire, andRome itself, would not be the same
