Via dei Banchi Nuovi, via di Panico, via del Governo Vecchio, Piazza dell’Orologio, via Orsini, Largo Tassoni are LE VIE DEL PONTE that look at Castel Sant’Angelo and will host musical, artistic and cultural events at the end of February. This is the initiative organized by the V.E.S.T.A. to enhance the area through a real atmosphere of participation among tourists, citizens and traders.
“The Ponte district, whose name derives from the pedestrian Ponte Sant’Angelo, built by Adriano in 134 d. C. extends in reality in a much larger territory that reaches up to via della Pace and via dei Coronari, but ours – says Gianfranco Labib, president of VESTA, which includes over thirty activities in the area – is a little step to start making the territory better known, which develops on economic activities whose productions, since the Middle Ages, attracted citizens, merchants, pilgrims and tourists of the grand tour. We hope we can return, through the revitalization of the area through small events with great content, to that influx dictated by the curiosity to discover the work of a goldsmith, mosaicist, leather goods, painter, sculptor, marble worker, how to enjoy shopping, catering and receptivity sharing a piece of our history together.” (see photo gallery)
