Web lecture on August 12 with Ludovica Schmidt on "Where do the Spanish Steps Lead to?"
It is almost unique to consider a flight of steps as a top attraction. Usually when we travel, we look for buildings, monuments, churches, museums, visual arts, and much more intricate things.
But Rome, once again, proves to be unique in its genre: by the XVII and XVIII century the city had developed an open-air theatre where public ceremonies were held. It had also become one of the most coveted destinations of the travelers of the past, an international city, not only for the many foreigners looking for a "grand tour" or fortune, but also for the many Embassies and representatives to the Holy See.
We will discover together who the stairs were for and what is the origin of their name!
By the way… Are they Spanish Steps or French Steps?
