Roma attraversa il Tevere

The Rome Museum in Trastevere presents an exhibition dedicated to the Tiber and the important role played by the river in the life and history of Rome. The exhibition features reproductions of 18th-century engravings by Giuseppe Vasi and Alessandro Specchi, alongside works by Scuola Romana painters Antonio Donghi, Giulio Aristide Sartorio and Mario Mafai. Many of the works on show document the construction of the river's embankments, a massive project which began in 1876 and ended in 1926. Museo di Roma in Trastevere, Piazza S.
