During the Middle Ages, the multitude of pilgrims who went to visit the city of Rome were said to have been equipped with a guide known as the Mirabilia Urbis, “the wonders of the city”. A definition that immediately cast a light on the special nature of this place, where art and history complement each other. It was a text that prepared the visitor for the lavishness, beauty, wealth, spirituality, but also the variety of artistic works to be found in Rome.
Rome can be visited and understood from different perspectives, beginning with the period of ancient imperial and early Christian Rome up to the works of the Renaissance, Baroque, and testimonials to Art Nouveau, modern and contemporary art. Rome, however, offers other new and unusual aspects of its history, that of the presence of another, evangelical and Protestant church.
For those who wish to, it is possible to follow an alternative itinerary in the footsteps of the founder of the Protestant Reformation, Martin Luther. The route offers a historic artistic reconstruction of the city at the beginning of the 16th century, as well as the beliefs, customs, rites and faith of the population of the time, during his stay in Rome, when he was still a Augustinian monk at the Efurt monastery.
Or, again an itinerary to discover the first evangelical communities founded during the Italian Risorgimento. The first non-Catholic churches to be built in the city of Rome, seat of papal authority and power. They contributed with their presence not only to the growth and cultural formation of the population but also to the birth of the modern city.
