CCR Walks: Cola di Rienzo - March 18, 2017

Who was Cola di Rienzo? A rabble-rouser? A man ahead of his time? A humanist or an impostor?

This walk meanders from the banks of the Tiber to the Capitoline Hill, unraveling the many strands of his amazing tale, from his birth in an obscure inn to his mission to the glittering Papal court at Avignon, to finally becoming an inspiration as a Risorgimento hero in the 19th century, hundreds of years after his death!



When: Saturday, March 18, 2017
Time: 9:30 a.m. for coffee; 10 a.m. for the walk.
Meeting point: Via Petroselli area; exact location to be provided to those registered for this walk.
Cost: €10 for members and €15 for non-members.
RSVP required by Thu. Mar. 16, ATTN Joe at canadarome@gmail.com. You are financially responsible for your reservation.
NB: Please bring correct change.
