About the Presentation:
The markets in the heart of Rome are popular destinations for tourists and locals alike. Even from its inception, the Roman Forum was as much a popular market as well as a sacred pilgrimage. Join me in a virtual walking tour of the rioni of Rome, browsing through some of its neighborhood markets, both past and present. Highlights include the Markets of Trajan, Piazza Navona, and Campo de’ Fiori, among others. As the Romans say, “Annamo va!”
