How did you start teaching these skills. It's funny because your professors when you're in university probably one of their least favourite things they have to do. but we'll do is be an academic advisor. They tell you what classes you're supposed to take and if you get a good one the lawsuit can help you get into the career that you want and give you advice and i actually. Even though i wasn't looking forward to doing these meetings all day long. I found that i was actually quite good at it. And so alongside teaching our digital media illustration and animation. I found that my students were coming to me quite a lot for advising and i was teaching in new york city in new jersey and then for ten years in rome italy and then three years ago we moved to men mar and they're actually wasn't my field in the universities there so i started teaching for organizations and ad agencies. They're junior staff helping them. Be more confident at work. Be more able to ask questions able to give presentations basically not be so timid. So that's sort of how.

Interview with Airbnb CEO Brian Chesky

"Talk to me about going forward and connecting people and the focus. You're putting on experiences but also on the lives you can create for your host. Who in part. I think are taking equity and becoming quite important for the brand. We've just heard in london here this week. That uber has said its drivers will become workers with benefits and minimum wage. So they're getting brought into the companies. So how do you sort of to advance the experience of your host but also the people that are using the platform to rent yet to great questions. Maybe i'll start with the second question host. And then i'll go to the first one the different like let's just take us versus uber. One difference in us an uber is the founders of uber created uber because they wanted to be writers another words they said it would be awesome if i could summon a black car so they started on the buyer side. We were totally opposite. My roommate and i weren't desiring to have a service like airbnb to travel because we were too broke to even want such a service. I mean we would have loved it but we were so broke. We just wanted to way to make money so we really started as host. So in that sense. I think this is a company of hosts by host for host and even if we have veered from that in the past. We're back there. And so i'm very proud of the fact that number one host have made one hundred and ten billion dollars on our platform since we started. That's pretty cool. The next thing. I'm saying i think it's cooler. Fifty five percent of that income has gone to women most ecommerce platforms. The vast majority economics. They're not evenly distributed on airbnb. The vast majority of income is outside the united states and more than half of it goes to women. it's a pretty diverse audience. We have four million host on airbnb. Ninety percent of our hosts are individual people so there is a question. How many of these are professionals. The answer is ten percent ninety percent of individuals. The most common careers are healthcare workers schoolteachers. In students these are the three most common professions that we've seen so these are truly everyday people like my parents. My parents are social workers. And it would make sense that people who need supplemental income would be everyday people for the most part one of the things we did before it went public. Is i got a piece of advice from somebody. They said. institutionalize your intentions. So that even as a public company you can minimize conflicts. Your vision and what they really meant was wants to go public. The cement of your company gets a little harden. What do you want to bake into the company before you go public. And i said one of the things i want to bake in is to create a host endowment. I want to set aside equity for host and so one of the things we did is we took nine point. Two million shares of airbnb equity and we put it into is essentially a airbnb host endowment kind of like a college endowment where it would grow every year but then some of the appreciation would get distributed into the host each year. So that was the idea that endowment is nearly two billion dollars today and growing. I hope it's one day. Larger than most college endowments and we created a host advisory board of seventeen host from fourteen countries to advise us on how to spend that money and reinvest it back to the host community. We also allowed host to invest in our ipo. And we had. I think it was fifteen thousand host. If i'm not mistaken who invested. They bought stock at sixty eight dollars. A share as you know the stock prices at the time of this recording around triple so those hosts have done really well and if i could allowed winning more host to invest in the whatever but we had some sec regulations that limited us and so these are just some of the many things we tried to do. But i just want to say like our commitment to host just beginning. Because i've committed to putting more than one hundred million dollars in my own equity into the host endowment and we're gonna continue to invest in our host because we are nothing without our host and in the end the day everybody's more of a community anything else i mean. Yeah we are a technology company in a sense but with people are buying isn't technology and they're not buying real estate we're not like zillow wh- senator of our company our host and our people and so that leads to the second question. What is airbnb about in. Where's it going when we started airbnb. Our first tagline was travel like a human. The idea was that you were like kind of treated for who you are. And you're seen for who you are valued for who you are and that was kind of the idea. I mean it was idealistic. But i can tell you. We definitely believed it in the early days and we realized that i had these two crazy ideas when we start airbnb. These crazy beliefs and people thought i was absurd. The first idea was we thought people were fundamentally good. That sounds kind of crazy because if you open any newspaper you wouldn't think they're good. People are good wise every headline about the worst of humanity. I think there was a famous quote by a former chief justice. The united states. You said i don't read the front page of the newspaper. I read the sports section. The front pages filled the man's failures. The sports pages. Filled man successes. I kind of feel like despite what we read in the news. People are funny. Good and i can tell you that we have the data to prove it. We probably more than anyone to prove what happens. When a hundred million people live together. Mostly good things sometimes bad things but statistically people are good and the second thing is true is that people are ninety nine point nine percent the same and you would never think that today given that we are so divided and yeah we spent a lot of time energy celebrating that point one percent. That makes us different. We call that culture in other things but let's not forget that we're mostly the same deep down and if you think people are good and their most the same then you'd believe that it's better to bring them together than divide them in separate them. That was the idea behind airbnb and so real estate and housing is just the beginning. We launched a few years ago. Airbnb experiences air experiences are essentially just three hour activities where you can have a host host. One other passions. You can go to tuscany. And make pasta with grandma grandma. Non an arena. Who's like an eighty plus year old grandmother who grew up during world war. Two and tells you about living in italy during the rise of fascism and then kind of what happened after and she tells you about her famous recipe and you make pasta in her house with and then you eat around the table this alternative to going to restaurants a pretty cool alternative so we have these like really interesting experiences and i think experiences is going to be a really really big product. I thought last year was going to break out year. But of course social distancing met we put on pause but we're looking at many new ways to try just connect people again. I think this is one of the loneliest times in human history right now. I think most people listening would probably say they felt some type of loneliness in the last year. We've been so separated. And i think in life we sometimes appreciate things when they're taken away from us and human connection and travels been taken away from us and i hope that makes us value at more than ever before and i'm pretty concerned about the amount of isolation happening and i don't think that social media and digital connections are fully nourishing. We actually do need real connection with real people. And i actually think it's good. Connect people are different than you. If you wanna like bridge the divide in any country. The best answer. I've heard is to just walk in other people's shoes don't argue over the internet. No one's ever changed. Someone's mind on a youtube comment section to my knowledge. But how could you not change your mind when you walk in someone. Just home live in their home walk. In their shoes do their activities. You may not agree with them but you will find that. Most of them are good and they're mostly just like you deep

The Hitler Haggadah with Jonnie Schnytzer

"Joined today by johnny schnitzer to talk about the hitler. Haga a nineteen forty-three judeo arabic haggadah. Which tells the story of the holocaust the second world war and the allied landing in north africa through the passover seder. Johnny schnitzer is a phd candidate at bar. Ilan university with a focus on medieval kabbalah. His dissertation is focused on the fourteenth century. Kabul list rabbi. Joseph ben shallow ashkenazi and johnny is also preparing a critical edition of ashkenazis. Commentary on sefer itsy raw. Johnny also edited an english edition of the etc. Which we're going to be talking about today. The hitler etc is such a fascinating text in many ways even just the title is jarring. And you might think how can you use. Hitler's name in the title of this traditional jewish text and it draws you in to a tremendous piece of moroccan jewish history that reworked the traditional passover story to tell us about the experience of north african jews in the holocaust. I hope you enjoyed our conversation. Where we're going to dive into this text and think about how it can broaden our understanding of the holocaust to include the middle east and north africa in that story and also where we think through the important relationship between jewish roots and holidays with history and historical memory. Thanks for tuning in high johnny. Welcome to the podcast. Thanks so much for joining us to talk about your book that you added. Thank you for inviting me. Lovely to be here. Absolute think this is such a fascinating text. Can you maybe tell us a little bit about it in other words like what is it that makes this different from all other hug adults. I think there are sort of two bombs that this text drops upon any re- debt guest that sort of feast there is on the hit laga and the first one of course is the title and this is what got me interested in this from the outset and that is this sort of sporadic this who has the chutzpah to do this at taking a jewish texts calling it the hit laga. That's the sort of bomb number one. Because you're not even sure what this is about. Who wrote this. But you know one thing you know that the author who is anonymous and we'll touch upon them in a moment takes to keywords. That every juneau's today every jew does not need to google almost haggadah writer passover passover eve where we read the haggadah we all come and we eat together and he takes haggadah and he connects to the other. Keyword that we all know about for a very separate horrific connotation. That's hitler and he puts it together. The first bomb is who has the chutzpah to perpetrate a text. And give it the title. Hit laga taking one of the most sacred texts and connecting it to one of the biggest mom's area if you like in jewish history and then you open the text and you realize that author has done something absolutely fascinating he is done with. The sages have asked us to do generation after generation and that is to see ourselves as if we left egypt red. It's to reenact. Redemptions to reenact. God saving the jewish people taking us out. And what does he do. He takes the structure of the storytelling bit of the haggadah. Right on passover. Eve we have the ceremony we have the blessings and then we reached the mortgage section the mugged section to section where we meant to mcgee. We meant to tell the story. That's what is about right. We tell story we tell the story of redemption. This also explains why passovers become right. This trend of everyone bringing own hug dot. Everyone bringing their own stories. Because it's all about bringing together different pieces of the puzzle. Creating this beautifully rich mosaic. So he takes the traditional structure of the haggadah which tells us about how we were taken out of egypt and it tells us about these different characters. Rabbinic figures leaving two thousand years ago. The told us to do this and told us to do that. And he takes out the content and fills it with a new content whereby he tells the story of the holocaust of world war two of the allied victory of the ex pows over nazi germany. And hitler and mussolini's italy he tells us the story of his generation rights yossi who has something to tell us in the traditional said. There's something about how. How would you meant to do something. All of a sudden becomes the speech of the dictator iosif stalin when we told them the haggadah that i god and not an angel. Not anyone else is going to take you. The jewish people out of egypt suddenly becomes. I shall the goal. I not level not the right none of none of the other vichy high commanding general's. I shall the goal which already tells us right. This is what's fascinating in the hitler etc and this is the second bomb if the first bomb is the title. We still don't know what it's about. The second bomb is when you discover that this was written by an anonymous jew living in robots morocco probably towards the end of nineteen forty-three as a result possibly inspired by operation torch. The allied operation led by the us on the shores of casablanca and algiers. And everything changes all of a sudden this jew living in morocco. Who's lived under a regime whether anti jewish laws jews around him have lost their jobs. Jews around you can't get a jewish education you become by night a second-grade citizen and so out author. It almost seems as if he's taking a text which it's time to write it when we don't yet know the ending. He doesn't yet know about the horrific six million who are being murdered. He doesn't know about concentration camps in poland. But he knows he wants to do something horrific any also is living in a time where his life has changed for some years and as a result of the allied victory he suddenly possibly is inspired and sees. I get the exodus. The story i meant to be telling i meant to take the passover haggadah until the story that i see and that's how the allies beat the excess power. And how in fact you know retelling the story of exodus mine new-fangled version. I think that the text itself is amazing in the ways in which it on. The one hand utilizes the story of passover very explicitly very specifically in when he talks. About how hitler. Enslaved the jews but also like you mentioned the way in which some of the characteristic aspects of the traditional aspects are transfigured and transformed new. Whether we're talking about the parable of the four sons the for children or the different rabbis plagues. What are some of the really interesting things that are happening in this text that really are utilizing the passover story itself and also the the characteristic aspects of the passover seder that people who read attritional seder would be familiar with but they give it new meaning in this context. If we take right this this idea of the four sons four daughters any jewish figure that we look at it and we want to understand. What is it the sort of a heart of their teachings you know. One of the tricks is to see if they wrote a commentary on the haggadah. What do they do with these. Four boys of for doors. What do they symbolize. And in the case of the hit da it takes us back in time to a sort of moroccan viewpoint of the the north african campaign. And so who is the wise son now. You know it's going to be an allied power. But you're not sure that england or is it america and you'll told the the wise son is england right. The royal air force acts cleverly. He's clearly impressed he he is probably the razzie stance radio. He knows about the bombings. He knows about montgomery and then we move onto the russia. The russia we know can only be one person. That's clearly hitler. Hitler the evil one. He knows that he's a know he. He's torturing the jewish people and yet it's interesting that if you read through the at that we're not quite sure what's going on in europe right off a thinks that there is a concentration camp in berlin so we're not yet show what's going on in the world and our author doesn't yet. Nobody knows that he clearly is evil that he's plotting against the jews there wearing yellow badges which also is interesting. Because we're not sure. If he's referring to the yellow badges of jews in europe or the yellow badges of jews in certain places in north africa and then who is the tam. The time is interesting. Because tom can both mean in hebrew complete simpleton the thomas america and then shane no. You're dillashaw and who doesn't know how to ask questions. The classic version says the fourth son is the son who doesn't know how to ask questions. The newfangled version is and mussalini. Who isn't with the avowed woods and this is very interesting because when i was speaking to holocaust survivors. Oh you know this. Sort of all degeneration and i spoke to people from algeria from tunisia morocco across the board there was a nickname from cellini mar. He was the donkey he was the s. This resonates with this passage whims lead author decides to change it. And say it's not. He doesn't ask question it's that we don't even wanna talk about

With every passing day, the harder it'll be to reach vaccination targets

"There's been nearly three hundred thousand. Doses of coronavirus vaccine have been deleted across australia since the rollout began. But we heard from epidemiologist mary. Louise mclaughlin weeks ago that we would have to be vaccinating about one hundred and nine hundred thousand people a day to reach our targets and of course we haven't been vaccinating that many people a day for weeks now so presumably. We've gotta make up that shortfall and norman. What are these barriers at stopping us from from really ramping up this roll out to the stage that it needs to be at for us to actually make those targets well. One barrier is simple. Logistics is that we don't have the vaccine. We haven't had the vaccine in the country. We didn't get a batch of astro which was blocked by italy coming in it may well be in the future of the twenty million of doses. They may be delayed as well as if they get blocked by europe. Hopefully they won't be and so we've got a supply issue while our local supply comes on stream which is coming onstream now and that's going to be a good thing. But that's a million a week that supposedly coming on we've had more vaccine in the country we should have been able to distribute it more than we have. We haven't been able to do that. And it's been miscommunication which the federal government and general practice generates confused the communities confused and not enough. Vaccines are getting through to general practice. There are multiple issues here and of course the federal government is committed to doing this through general practice which is fine general. John apprentices wanted to do that has been success with the gp respiratory clinics and doing and we can actually see a ramp up there. But you're absolutely right. Teeing is that for every week. That goes by and you miss that target you. Just add on that target to the next week. And then you missed that target you add onto the next week. So you cumulatively are talking about much more than one hundred nine hundred thousand a day because you've got to catch up now what's going to have to happen down. The track is only going to be a limit to how much general practice can do. And we're going to have to include the state's not in the states to take over but the states can tool up. Imagine pretty quickly to provide services for large numbers of people in convention centers in football stadiums and other places independent hospitals people can get on with the regular job here and that would be for all comers. Once people immunize our high risk healthcare workers people in age care cetera. Then you could just say to people forget all this business turn up a local convention center will tell you what the waiting time is and just get it done. You don't have to make an appointment. Just turn up and anybody turn up. Who wants suits and you deliver it that way. In addition to general practice not instead of in addition. That's sort of uplift you're going to have to need and the you're going to need and the komo government will inevitably move in that direction. The only way they're going to achieve the target

"italy" Discussed on Extra Pack of Peanuts Travel Podcast

"Hey Everyone Hello. Travel mirrored and welcome to the extra pack peanuts. This show. That is going to be talking traveling. Even though we're all quarantine at I'm joined by my wife and constant travel companion and someone who's going to take us on a journey today to one of her favorite places in the world and one of my favorite places in the world to because today we are going to Italy Italy but on your travel pants. That lasted pants with elastic pans. Because today we are taking on a trip to Italy. And this is our quarantine diary sessions in. So if you haven't tuned in any of these yet we are doing these unedited. They're shorter form than our regular podcast. You can find it either on TV so if you want to watch US LIKE ON VIDEO. Go over to our instagram at extra. Pack peanuts or you can listen to it on the podcast as well and these are coming out every Monday Wednesday and Friday until we either run out of content. Probably not going to be the case or the quarantine is over. Who knows when that will be? But we're putting these out and they're super fun for us to do and you guys have loved him as well so thank you thank you. Thank you for all of that. If you're in the podcast feed you'll know their quarantine. Diaries one by the little q deal say q d and then they'll have a title and today's is the best of Italy and we've been to Italy a few times and there's a reason why it's such a popular destination. It's incredible country and we haven't even seen all of it. I mean we. We haven't seen most. Yeah most of it. We've gone back to Florence twice in Tuscany. And then we've hit the two other wealth remain cities Milan Venice and Rome. And we haven't been to the north we haven't been to the salvator. Never done the coast. Never been itching. Tara we've never been down to Sicily. I mean so. There's a ton of Italy that we haven't seen but we do know the region around Florence pretty well and let me say we've done. I've been the room twice once for one day so it doesn't really get so we've done like the touristy version of Rome. You're kind of run through three day of Rome done a few days in Milan and a few days in Venice. So we're by no means Italian experts because there are people who spend all their time. You know we're talking even people who don't live there but travelers who just go back to Italy over and over and over again because y not so much to offer but this will be Arctic on the best of Italy and got some cards and she mixes them up and she asked the same questions but in different orders for these quarantine. Diary Best of series. And it's GonNa be tough today because I mean yeah we're doing a whole country and as you mentioned the whole country that has a lot to offer especially when it comes to food so This could be a little difficult head. I mean start us off. Let's just get through it so the first card is most beautiful site which I have to say in. Italy would be pretty hard. Because there's so many dramatic visuals. They're landscapes however never having been to positano or the southern coasters can get Tara or even the mountains. The how do you say the DOLEMITE's I feel like those would maybe be on my list. Always like a mountain or body of water type person body of water bottle of wine yet from the last episode. But I would have to say my most beautiful sight is the AIRBNB that we stayed at in the intesting outside of foreign about forty five minutes outside of Foreign. We sit at this beautiful old refurbished farmhouse. It was stunning those the rolling hills of Tuscany and the olive trees and we went to all of these wineries and it was beautiful. So that's my most beautiful. Although Gosh I mean Florence and the Demo is let me give let me give that yeah I mean. There's no shortage of refurbished rehab farm houses in the countryside of Tuscany. The one we stayed out with David in Francesca was extra special. Because they're just amazing people as I'm sure honestly a lot of the hosts at these agrotourism Os are just share the same birthday and so they made us like eight. Ten course feast for Heather and his birthday. Because we just happened to be there on Heather's birthday because they insisted we stayed longer when they found out his birthday And what a night. I've never drank so much wind in my life. I'm not a wine drinker and I probably drank two balls myself. Food was awesome. My favorite site is the Domo and in Florence. I Love Santa Cruz Square as well. But the Domo going up the Bell Tower and looking back at the Domo and then Duomo Domo Domo and then going up the Domo. I know I'm not pronouncing it. Perfect and then looking back at the Bell Tower. I mean you just. We have a picture of the biggest picture we have hanging in our living room. Is that picture of being at the belltower looking at the Domo from the top of the Bell Tower. And it's just I mean it's everything you would want from an Italian city at Florence and general and that square specifically so yeah. I think it's the most stunning I mean. Obviously go to Rome and you see all the historic sites in the Coliseum and all of that and it and it is beautiful but and Venice is beautiful. Too It's a little I don't like I mean it's stunning. I don't like Venice. Florence our favorite favorite. Okay definitely the. I'm going to be a little florence heavy on this. I mean it could've just been the best of Florence honestly probably I. You know there might be one that sneaks in there okay. Well we've got next up. Best meal This is this is the hardest category when he's talking about Italy because there are so many good meals but the only thing that I've ever eaten Italy that was the best of its category. Is the sandwich in Florence at a place called Alan TICO BANAL? Adelie right there by the fouzy fees. It's rated on tripadvisor sometimes supervisors wrong right or not great. It's radio and trip advisors like one of the top places in the world. It's insane like we went and ate a sandwich every single day. Because you could pick out whatever you wanted and just going to this in there right down. The street on the same street is tied for my favorite Jalad show in all of Italy and as a place called J Lataria Day Mary. And so that's The Best Sandwich July Bang. Bang in the world right there. You've got the SANDWICH WALK DOWN. The street hits you Jill. Lotto life is good in that little two blocks stretch. It is good. That is definitely the best I've ever eaten and one of the best meals but I am going to say two things. One is the best pizza because I mean we're talking Italy so we have to talk about the best pizza to Rome. I cannot I remember the name of the restaurant what I can't. We didn't prepare. Do you remember what it was? It was called artichoke artichoke. Now but the pizza I had. There was so amazing and it was like the brick oven obviously recovering style and it had eggplant on it and ricotta cheese and it was just the best pizza. I if I knew you were going to mention this. I have in my note somewhere. Well rain somewhere.

"italy" Discussed on Talking Politics

"Decree this big decreed that the government passed in order to inject a lot of cash flow into the economy. It's not clear why he's threatening not to sign it but he's threatening to sign and the president of the Republic had to intervene so that's one line his trying to play out the other argument. He's trying to use is a eurosceptic argument. So he's basically going banging on on video that you see that you is not here we told you the Germans are not willing to share their respiratory devices with us. We had told you all along because it seems that does a slight mixed message as I understood it. One of the reasons he doesn't want to sign the decree is he doesn't want to go down the path. We taught Adam tease about this possible corona bones and the federalization of the European economy. So on the one hand he's saying look we told you the country's going to be sold out to the e bureaucrats when we get in a crisis on the other hand he saying look. We told you when we're in a crisis the other Europeans don't care about. Yeah exactly there is a mixed message. And he's not really articulate it clearly so when he's threatening not to sign this decree he's not really saying I mean if you look at his twitter account he does tweet about the factors getting corona Bonds or accepting money from the M. E. S. is a way of selling telling off the country without say that but that's not exactly the same argument he's giving for not signing the decree ventilators but not money. Your he wants yeah. Yeah but it's it's not clear what he wants. I mean He. He's of course aware that Italy will need a lot of money and it's not clear where he's planning to get it from Still GonNA come from three to nothing. I don't know maybe China. Maybe he's looking at China. The moment that it's politics of that a pretty complicated so the thing. Gotti the PAYDAY leader. So he's now known a little bit outside of Italy as the guy who would have been three weeks ago. I lost track of time when out forbid until people was there any to tell people he was going to go out drinking. And then you go. Yes yes indeed. Of course there was a lot of irony and skepticism about again as you said he was the one who went to Milan. Having a predictive. Oh and then the virus himself but he was so do we hear announced it the way he behaved afterwards was very sober and I think somehow people forgave him for that. Because that's a mistake that everybody made right the mistake of thinking that. This was an overreaction and he's himself and his party have been very quiet throughout the entire crisis. They've only been supportive of the government was doing and I think that people appreciated that and that shows in the fact that again the latest polls show that the Democrat Party has gained two three points in the last two or three weeks so basically sevigny lost these two three points depending on the polls and their Predator democratical gain them so it's the fact that he made that mistake doesn't seem to have had effects on his popularity or on. The popularity of the party was politician. And then I want to ask you about how the rest of the world looks from Italy. The Miot said when we last spoke I rashleigh said five star done. You should never in politics. Make those kinds of statements because you never know where you're going to be in three months time Where five-star now in this I mean that's still in the government for a start. Yes but we'll be tempted to say that you're right no income wrong. You're going to tell you no. I don't think they've done forever. I don't think that's the case. But at the moment they have disappeared completely. So the only voice you hear is the my young. Who's the Minister of Foreign Affairs? And you only hear of him because he's organizing repatriation flights. That's all he's doing well. The other thing he's doing is managing the relationship with China. And of course now. Everybody's looking at China as the sort of details X. Makina giving us machines and face masks and expertise so now we he is coming out of this crisis relatively well but the party is nowhere to be seen really the one last thing. I would like to say before we move on is that there is an interesting new dynamic while it's not really a new dynamic. It's an old dynamic that has come to the forefront recently which is the role of northern regions and the governors of these regions in Italian politics. So I think that now the real political divide is between regions and Rome. This is interesting. Because the regions that are gaining ground and voice our the regency the North Again Lombardi Benneteau Emilia and Piemonte and these are the worst hit regions and three out of four of these regions are run by governors from the League from the League and I think this is interesting because it means two things. The first is that this individual figures. These governors are much more visible and enjoy much more popular support than Salvini does and there has always been attention between Salvini and his nationalistic vision of the Party and the governors of the northern regions. Who on the country don't want nationally sparty but won't autonomy for the regions because these are normally wealthy regions that have a good health system? That have a good weight of compliance from citizens people are paying taxes. They're productive. They're wealthy. They're generally will run so. This crisis is really showing the detention within the league between governors and Salvini so savini. Who doesn't know who has no expertise of really governing anything and regional governors. Who HAVE A lot of expertise? And who are the ones holding on the show? Basically they're the ones who are saving lives if you want to some an exaggerated rhetoric but that's the sort of thirty that's going around so this is one reason why this is interesting and the second reason is because the old tension between the north and the central between the North and Rome has become very important again so again you position is between this northern governors who wants to for example shutdown entire productive activities of the regions and Rome whose find to be more cautious and doesn't want to give them the powers that they want to have anything. This tension between the North and Rome will play out again in the future. Once the the emergencies over. That's really interesting. So is it. So it's new set versus centers not no south. No it's north. It's really north against the rest of the country. Is that for the South? Where but those are the center right. It's it it really is Veneta. Lombard the Piedmont Emilia. So and it's interesting right because there is a Emilia which is as we discussed lit on our last episode on Italy. Mill is run by Bonacina the mechanical so from the centre-left but all this governor also league plus PD. They're working together against Rome. No south divides a confusing. Because as you say they leave out the center there's an assumption a soon as you've left the south you're in the north as in as in England or the UK. That's not true. There's the middle as well China as he said. China is now Dais X. mackinaw a month ago. China was the source of the disease. China was the place that it was the first country to stop. Flights coming in China was the problem. Now China's the solution in some sense. Can you date it? I mean when did it flip? When did it go from? We must do everything in our power to keep the Chinese out to. We need more help from them than from anyone else. I think it's two weeks ago so until two weeks ago you still had the governor of Benneteau who's again a league person saying that we all know literally he said we all know that Chinese eat mice so this was a pretty strong racist rhetoric and the sort of Tom Paean blaming blaming China for for for the outbreak of the disease but as soon as they realize that this is a serious problem suddenly. The referee can the narrative completely flipped now. China's the solution and then presumably at the point when the definitely went above the number of deaths in China and the the various grafted a put out but the Chinese have not just flattened the curve. But they've turned it the other way they've been the curve and in Italy as we speak. It's still going up logo rhythmically. China looks completely different. Now yes yes. Of course there is. I mean everybody. Here is aware that we are not China I. The outbreak in China was only in one region now region was as big as easily in terms of population. But here we are looking down an entire country and of course we cannot use the measures of surveillance that China has put in place presumably. There are not armed officers of the state outside upon them blocks taking people's temperatures as they go in and come out no no of course not even though they are taking temperature everywhere so when I landed from London they did take my temperature but yes dot with snitty two weeks ago. That was yes Eleven twelve days ago but they've been taking temperature at airports since the virus workout in China. So it's almost a month now even more that but when you were stopped after your work in the woods the police until your temperature didn't know so no of course we're nowhere close to what was going on in China But one thing that for example again the northern governors are trying to insist on is the idea of testing the entire population. It's an effort both in financial terms but also in terms of organization right. You need people to test. Every single citizen in each northern region again the justification for that is to do what China did so it is in some respects two weeks ahead of the UK. The sequence seems to go Italy Spain France. Uk possibly Germany a little bit behind the UK. Germany shut many of it schools before the UK did and people in in Britain and in other places looked to Italy as possible. Glimpse of our future future in two weeks time any longer timeframe than that two people in Italy as we sometimes hear looker. Say British people widow Boris Johnson on our Friday night. This is your last night for getting out to the pub- said a lot of people think right. I'm going to get some time in now. The People in Italy. Look at that and think the you don't know what's coming down the line they despair of us. Yes yes we do have heard yes yes so. There is a complete sense of despair. And just we come make sense of what's going on in the rest of Europe and in the UK and the Netherlands especially right. So is the other one right after. Boris speech when he basically announced this herd immunity theory. And when he said you're going to lose a lot of loved ones. The reaction in Italy was that that was completely completely insane. Then of course the bar is made a u-turn on that and people need to again take it as a proof that we are right just to be clear. The thing that was insane was it. The herd immunity was it. The loved ones BITs. In the sense. You said what really struck me about what you said. Earlier was the feeling in Italy that the government is doing the right thing because it is prioritizing saving lives over everything else and did it feel like Johnson was saying a little bit. Well we're GONNA have to just factory certain amount of inevitable death of old people and that that has almost a cultural dimension to this that it sounded cold about the old in a way that in Italy. That would be unforgivable. Yes yes I think..

"On in Italy what's happening now is the government is saying that and not enough people are staying in so they have fined about fifty three thousand people since the beginning of the lockdown and those are people who aren't following the rules closely enough and the interior minister threatens that if people don't stay put that she will pass a new decree that will ban going out for physical exercise right now you can go for a run within your neighborhood or do a little bit of exercise keeping the the social distancing but she says that people don't comply that will be introduced soon because the numbers are not coming down yet one of the people doing when they're going outside I mean are they doing something I mean besides just physical exercise and trying to get groceries well I think the the C. there have been people who have been you know arrested and fined and and in doing you know going out without what's called the outdoor chip TV gets yawning which is sort of a questionnaire it's sort of a self Declan Tory questionnaire that you have to fill out now that it and there's been a there was a new one introduced where you have to say that you you you know you have to sign that you have not tested positive for the virus and so that's a new measure most people here in Rome are keeping the distance I haven't seen anybody breaking that rule unless you consider sort of going for a stroll breaking that rule you know I've been exercising I have not been stopped but I'm clearly you know I'm wearing workout gear and I'm and I'm running I think what they are talking about is people going shopping several times a day they don't want that they want people to go stock up and and not go for a few days what's the anxiety level like across Italy because in the E. U. S. it's pretty hot I think it's probably a little bit lower than the U. S. now in the sense that the U. S. is under shock and it you know it's literally mind boggling I think it it it it's very hard to get to wrap your mind around it initially it's not that people have anymore answers here but I think what's happening is people have are are settling into the day to day routine and it's not easy in a way it you know there's a lot of people who are isolated and a lot of people very worried about their economic future and of course in the north of Italy it's theirs it's a disaster in the hospitals I mean they're working under emergency conditions twenty four seven but the feeling over all is that we're in for the long haul and the government has said that the initial deadline of April third we're schools would reopen that of course is not going to happen we're talking weeks and across Italy and in Rome which is further south than what they've been seeing are you thinking that there is the fear that it will be as bad ians some place like Rome as it is further north in Milan and other places you know I have talked to doctors sort of just south of of the hot spot the the lot number of deer region and in the media Romagna where there were there are a lot more cases but the capacity there has not it's coping with with the number of cases I mean they're working very hard but it's not the emergency situation of the north based on research there was one inter disciplinary study with experts from different fields from the university of Genoa and the north based on their models they're saying that Italy will probably reach peak numbers and about a week from now and then the percentage increase of cases even though each night when the government announces the new numbers there keep going up the actual percentage increase is going down a little bit so that's a reflection of the move that the government made a number of weeks ago in the north but you know that even the experts and political leaders are saying it's not coming down enough take care you too coming up calming an anxious world some of the things you can do to quell your covert nineteen concerns on perspective after this from ABC.

I grew up actually in Padua that now you might know weight is because there is one of the epicenter of the coronavirus yes. I've actually never been there but I know it's in northern Italy which is a definitely known as the economic powerhouse of the country. Right I mean the car companies. Were there like Fiat and Ferrari also in Milan which is nearby has also been hammered by the krona virus. You've got the fashion houses the financial center telecom. I mean this is not the part of Italy. You WanNa see shutdown if you talk to any tile in CEO Leedle is a disaster. Mcmillan is great so put that into context and you see how bad Italy is right right. We'll have do you think a lasting impact on Italy's economy or is it just kind of a temporary shock. The economic implications are pretty severe because number one who avai integrated with China. So why the coin of is is so diffused NATO and I think that's very interesting because this is related to the Dasa Structure Italy Italy is the integrated with manufacturing of. Oh so people don't understand that but just to factories both my brother and the X. Osborne on my sister way in China in January sort for work for work not enough to. It's for work so this is very diffuse. Forget this Bradley Disease. Just as proud of the delaying the supply chain world causes slowdown of of Northern Italy to that you add the slow down of China leads to a slowdown in in the world. Trade leedle is highly dependent World Trade. So Dad will lead by itself is low down of Italy so they are two causes busy nothing to do with advised directly which our supply chain and global demand to these. You add two factors number. One two is that is going to be impacted. The summer is the season for example is the lovely plan which everybody travelers in which older the place full is not going to be like that. Okay so that's probably number one and number two. Is I think when you see all this things. The last thing you think about is buying a new car replacing your frigerator. Oh God forbid buy a new house okay. So demand is going to slow down so this is the moment. I am never been a big supporter of the fiscal stimulus.

Remember that it's this sort of pleasure that renaissance painters wanted you to get from their paintings for them. A canvas was window. You looked through to see the wide world. Their paintings recreate natural perspective. Distant objects such as bridges were dimmer and higher up on the canvas. closer objects are clearer and lower. We're headed down the homestretch. Now if your little feet caesar just killing you and it feels like torture remind yourself. It's a pleasant torture and smile like the statue hanging around just over there. Our uffizi tour culminates in the three greatest renaissance artists. All of whose styles were forged relationships in florence. I we'll see leonardo da vinci who combined artistic skills with the mind of a scientist to create timeless beauty michelangelo bruno roti took the florentine style and popularized it throughout italy and raphael combined the techniques of both leonardo and michelangelo to take the high renaissance to its peak.

"Via del corso and the galleria. the course. Oh is rome's main north-south boulevard. In ancient times. This was via flaminio the highway that stretched from rome all the way across italy to the adriatic coast in the middle ages district brought pilgrims to the vatican for two thousand years. This was how all travelers from northern europe. I entered rome and headed downtown. Looks left up the street. You'll see the obelisk marking piazza. Del popolo that was the northgate into the right. That grand edifice is the victor emmanuel monument marking the center of ancient rome. Just a reminder. Were crossing via del. Corso and entering the white columned building by the way this long straight street was named for famous medieval horse race or corso. That took place during the crazy carnival season that led up to lend this wild tradition continued until the late eighteen. Hundreds when series of fatal accidents led to its cancellation in eighteen. Fifty four via del. Corso became one of rome's first gas lit streets. It's still houses. Some of the city's sheik est shops every evening. The via del corso close to traffic for a few hours. So romans can show off what they might have purchased from those chic shops. That's when they take to the streets for their passage outta enter the white column shopping mall called the galleria alberto sordi. If it's closed you'll need to circle around the right side of the building on via Beanie will meet up with you around back as you enter the mall veer to the right but i note that there are convenient toilets to the left head down the right aisle where we'll be exiting out the far end the galleria already has been a shopping mall for nearly a century. You're walking through art. Nouveau decor notice. The stained glass skylights overhead mosaic floors below. The elegant carved wood grand galleries like this were built. Throughout italy. in the late eighteen hundreds they reflect the energy of a newly united and proud nation. You'll pass by the biggest italian bookstore chain feltrinelli. He's by the way galleria. Sordi is the new name for this old gallery. It was recently renamed to honor a beloved italian movie actor known from his work in fellini films. Exit the gallery out the far right end once outside. Continue straight ahead up via to coach fairy to the trevy fountain as you. Head up via decorative ferry. The tourist kitsch builds. We're headed for the trevy fountain. Hey rick you know that fellini film la dolce vita where they splash around in. The trevy fountain was alburto saudi. And that well. At least normally. I'd have no clue whatsoever but since this is an audio tour i know everything and no. He was not in that famous. Fill and don't get any ideas about you and me jumping in darn. I even brought my cocktail dress. By the way that film by fellini is just one of many reasons why the trevy fountain is so famous. Several other hollywood films of popularized it and the tradition of tossing coins in. I'm ready for that to keep going up via croce ferry. You'll soon reach the roar of the water lights and people at the trevy fountain that trevy fountain. The trevy fountain is a showcase for rome's love affair with water. This liquid baroque avalanche was conceived by nicola salvi. In seventeen sixty two selvi used the palace behind the fountain as a theatrical. Backdrop stage is the enormous figure known simply as the ocean symbolizes water in every form. The statue stands in his shell shape chariot surfing through his wet kingdom water gushes from twenty four spouts it tumbles over thirty different kinds of plants. Winged horses represent cresting waves. There led by triton's who blow on their cut shells. Rome took full advantage of the abundance of water. Brought into the city. By it's great aqueducts. Even in ancient times there was a fountain hair where locals came to get their water. It was doug lower than street level to give the fountains maximum gravitational umph. Turn your back to the fountain now and locate. The ionic columns built into the benetton shop facing the fountain. These are a reminder that in ancient times this was where the neighborhood gathered jugs on heads to fetch their water in the renaissance and baroque eras. The ancient aqueduct was renovated and reopened. The trevi fountain was built to celebrate that joyous event after a thousand years of surviving on poor quality well-water romans could once again enjoy pure water brought from the distant hills east of the city like their ancient cousins. Did this square that faces. The fountain has a lively atmosphere. The magic is enhanced by the fact that no streets directly approach it. You can hear the excitement. Is you draw near and then bam. You're there enjoy the scene. Lucky romeo's touch dates. Well unlucky ones clutch beers. And then there's the coins romantics toss a coin over their shoulder into the fountain. Alleged says will give you a wish and assure you return to rome over the years more ridiculous legends have proliferated to coins brings romance three means marriage. No coins means you're divorced and paying alimony. it's all pretty silly. But hey it's rome and the world is yours. Make up your own wish and toss a coin. Some people pooh-poohed the idea that a coin assures you return to rome. But you know every year. I go through this terrific ritual and actually seems to work before we continue on takes time here to people watch. Go ahead whisper few breathy bellows and bellas before leaving town. Slow co bella. Cut a meal by the way if you need a little more privacy. There's often more peaceful zone at water level on the far right and i don't wanna ruin the atmosphere. But what's your wallet and purses there are a lotta pickpockets. Enjoy the scene and meet us back here when you're ready to move on from here.

"Parliament. And it's obelisk this square with the italian parliament is marked by an egyptian obelisk from the sixth century bc. For half a millennium. It stood tall at temple in egypt. Then it was taken from egypt here to rome as trophy by augustus to proclaim his victory over mark. Antony and cleopatra the obelisk is made of red granite and stands seventy feet tall or well over a hundred feet when you include the base in egypt. obelisks were connected with the sun. God raw some say. The pointed stones were meant to look like sunrays by extension. They symbolized the heavenly energy granted by the gods to the pharaohs who were gods on earth. Roman emperors loved that idea to proclaim their divinity. They erected obelisks in public places. Think of the engineering effort that brought this obelisk the head to corey it. Carve it out of a single piece of stone and erected in egypt. Then after the romans came along they had to take down and roll it on logs to the water's edge and then loaded onto a special barge. Then they'd sale it across the mediterranean and up the tiber and finally bringing it overland to this spot and hoisted up. I bet there are lots of ancient obelisks littering the floor of the mediterranean augusta. Set this obelisk up by his selenium. That was a shrine dedicated. To the god of the sun it worked as a sundial and a calendar. It cast a shadow on a set of lines that marked the days of the year. This followed the brand new calendar instituted by gusta stepdad. Julius caesar the obelisk was aligned. So that on the day of justice birthday the shadow would fall directly across the solarium. After the fall of rome the obelisk was lost it was rediscovered and redirected right here in the seventeen hundreds just like the pharaohs and the emperor's before them pope's also loved the idea of the heavens giving them divine powers as rulers here on earth. They topped these obelisks. With crosses this is the only one in rome. Still kept with pre christian ornament. Ah globe with sunray on top today. This obelisk still functions as a sundial. In fact follow the zodiac markings on the ground to our next site the parliament building. This impressive building is where the lower chamber of congress meets to govern the nation of italy. You'll see heavy security. You may also see politicians coming and going political demonstrations and tv cameras if some major law has just been passed. This stately building is often the backdrop for reporters on the tv news. The palazzo has a long history of governance. Note the relief to the right of the door. It shows lady justice before italy was unified back in the nineteen th century. The high court of the people state met here. the building. Spacious facade is designed by our old friend. Bernini it bulges in the middle to make this. Small square field grander at either end of the facade. Notice the strips of jagged stones. This rustic back to nature style was popular in the baroque age. We'll see more fake grotto stones in a few minutes at the trevy fountain..

"The pantheon perhaps the most magnificent building surviving from ancient rome is this temple. It was called the pen theon because it was dedicated to all pan. The gods feels the temples columns show the scale. The ancient roman built on their forty feet tall made of granite each of them carved from a single huge piece. The columns support a triangular shaped greek style. Peppermint try reading the inscription. 'em agrippa l f and so on it saying that marcus. Agrippa built the pantheon but in fact it was built or fetch it by emperor hadrian around the year. One twenty the temple faces a piazza as it has since ancient times back. Then this was an elegant square a gathering place it was surrounded by columns supporting shaded walkways. The ancient romans introduced the whole piazza culture. And as you can see it thrives to this day notice how. Today's square slants down to the pantheon. In ancient times the square was much lower. The pantheon actually stood above street level approached by a staircase but centuries of sediment from the flooding. Tiber river have raised the piazza to today's height. Check out the fountain in the center of the square. The fountain itself dates from the eighteenth century. But the obelisk in the middle is ancient. It originally decorated a sanctuary near here dedicated to the egyptian goddess isis. Rome had no problem worshiping. The gods of other cultures and since much of rome's grain came from egypt. They were more than happy to have a place around here for their a businessman. By the way notice. How the fountain steps disappear into the pavement. Another case of modern sediment swallowing up older structures. The pantheon is one of rome's great wonders. Feel free to take some time on your own hair stroll amid the forced of columns check out the huge bronze door but as impressive as the outside is the greatest wonder is inside a magnificent room with a domed ceiling. This interior dome inspired later. Domes including michelangelo's peters and brunelleschi's duomo in florence. Our tour does not go inside but we do have a companion tour dedicated solely to the pantheon. This would be a great time to spice that india experience. Otherwise it's time to move on from here. Are what continues past some interesting landmarks. On the way to the trevy fountain next track rick and i will guide you along from the pantheon to piazza paprika with your back to the pantheon veer to the right head uphill toward the yellow sign that reads casa del cafe. This marks a coffee shop called tut's doro one of rome's top coffeeshops. It dates back to the days. When this area was granted a special license to roast coffee beans locals come here for a shot of espresso or when it's hot. A refreshing grenada cafe compund. That's a coffee slush with cream. if it's open circle through the cafe enjoy the smell and energy of a classic italian cafe scene. Coffee to go is simply wrong here in rome locals pit cashier bring their receipt to the barista and enjoy an elegant little break. That's the whole idea. This scene is unchanged since the early nineteen eighties. When an american named howard schultz traveled to italy he was inspired to start a fancy coffee shop back in seattle today. Starbucks is making. Its way back to italy when you're done with your little coffee break. Continue past the coffee shop heading up via daily or funny after a short block via daily funny opens up into an intimate square called piazza. Capron ika as you enter. The square directly ahead is a big plane building. The palazzo capron. Akot notice the stubby tower on the left end back in medieval times. This tower stood much taller. Powerful nobles like the capron kaz needed such fortified towers for their own security medieval rome had of these stone towers kinda like that famous hill town of san gimignano. A couple hours. North of here does today but when a stronger central government arrived the rulers decreed that all the nobles would need to cut off their towers. If you know where to look you can see. Stubby remains like this all over rome and all over italy. The six story building to the left is nothing special but it's typical of a middle class. Roman apartment building circa sixteen fifty look between the apartment and the palazzo find the circular little shrine on the street corner like the city is busy with tourists today. Five hundred years ago this was the domain of pilgrim's worshipful spots like this made the pilgrims feel welcome. Leave the piazza to the right of the palace. Heading down the short street called via inequality you'll pass by a church. This may look like just another rome's many places of worship but like so many of rome's churches it's much better than its three hundred year old baroque facade. People have worshipped for at least thirteen hundred years. We're now headed to see something. That's even older than the church. In fact it's older than christianity. It says old as the birth of rome itself via acquirer leads to a t intersection at the intersection turn left. You'll enter.

"Portugal the via this monumental gateway of columns supporting a triangular peppermint shows the many layers of history in this neighborhood. The portico dates from around twenty seven bc long before the establishment of the jewish ghetto. It was built by soon to be emperor. Augustus and named for his sister octavia. It was part of a covered. Colonnade nearly one hundred fifty yards long providing a place where patrons of the nearby theater of marcellus could gather flanked by temples and libraries. The passageway served as a kind of cultural center. After rome's fall the poco house to thriving fish market or pescariu in the eighth century. The ruins became incorporated into the church of san angelo in pescara. For centuries this christian church was packed. Every saturday with jews forced by decree to listen to christian sermons notice the faded bits of fresco on the arch check out the doorway under the arch at number twenty five locals love to tell of the poor old woman who refused to sell her land and now owns this priceless been real estate that includes the ancient arch to the left of the portico runs the main drag of today's ghetto. We'll head there soon. But i go to the bridge on your right to look down. At the level of the street in ancient roman times from the bridge you get a fine view of the theater of marcellus which predates the coliseum. It is the treetop capitol hill just over the bridge. The former church oratory is now a wedding registry shop. If it's open pop in and see who's getting married win and admire their choice of table setting the now walk around the arch and start heading west down the main street of the ghetto. The via del portico data via. Don't go too fast. The heart of the action is only about a block long via del. Portico diatta via the ghettos. Main drag. this main drag is a fine place to get a taste of yesterday's ghetto and today's rome from the start near the roman arch. Look down the street on. The left is a new building from nineteen. Eleven on the right in the distance is the only surviving line of old ghetto. Building fronts imagined today's street as it was then much narrower is at foreign today walking down the street notice. Kosher restaurants. proudly serving cartography that's artichokes which only jewish grandmothers can cook properly and shops have fine locally produced judaica. You might see posters for community events. A few men wearing yarmulkes 's and political graffiti both pro and anti israel. The palestine liberation organization or pillow attacked this area in nineteen eighty. Two in police. Presence has been here ever since after a block reached the center of the district. Look right down via san ambrosio to see old surviving street looking down this lane. Imagine the density of the population here the fled muck and the squalor of the past. The pedestrianised square ahead is where older folks hang out together and shoot. The breeze sometimes even bringing their favourite folding chairs from home browse around the big yellow building on the left houses. The jewish school back on the right at number seven. There's a gallery that tenderly features modern israeli artists at its door is a prayer capsule residents touch it as they come and go to recall their jewish creed pause here in the center of the ghetto and taken the scene. Today of italy's thirty five thousand. Jews nearly half call rome though. The jewish community has long since dispersed all over rome. Most roman jews continue to spend time in this neighborhood to enjoy the strong feeling of community that survives roman jews have a unique style of worship and even preserve remnants of their own today roman dialect. That's because unlike most of the world's jewish people roman jews are neither sephardic descended from spain nor ashkenazi descended from eastern europe. Italy's jews came directly from the holy land before the diaspora. Let's move on and explore a little more opposite the big school. Take a one block detour down via della. Reggie noah noticed that most of the buildings you pass have six floors but when you reach number twenty eight. The sixth floor buildings end and the building stay the same height. They become more elegant and spacious. Three floor buildings this marks the end of the ghetto continue for a moment out of the ghetto to the end of the lane in the square. Piazza matei is a fun fountain. It's an old mannerist work which was later embellished with turtles by bernini. It said that bernini cared about the jews and honored them with the symbol of a turtle. A toughened ancient creature. That carried all its belongings on. Its back return to the main drag via del portico diatta via and turn right where you'll soon find a bar called bar toto as you backtrack through this. Residential area realized that the neighborhood has become trendy recently. An apartment prices are now well beyond the means of most members of this jewish community. Ironically when the ghetto was cleared back in eighteen seventy only the richest jews could afford to relocate and because the poor had to stay there descendants today have enjoyed the healthiest real estate appreciation. When you get back.

"To victor emmanuel the second boulevard as we approach campo de fiori again remember that will pass directly through the square and exit on the other side. Just keep walking as i talk by the way. The statue of bruno is a symbol for rome's counterculture to this day. The statue was erected in eighteen. Eighty nine when the new secular state of italy was jostling for power with the vatican. The statue was built facing vatican building the vatican objected but they were overruled by angry neighborhood. Locals ever since this place has been a rallying point for anti authoritarian demonstrations locals gather here to carry on the face spirit of bruno a martyr freedom of thought. Exit the compo heading east down via day. Laurie as you slalom through the crowds notice the crush of cheap cafes bars and restaurants. It's clear that the local scene is changing becoming more playground for tourists students and locals visiting from the suburbs rome once. A family town is following urban demographics. Lots more single professionals families are small only about a child and a half per couple high. Rents are driving families out and with each passing year. The company fury market sells more gifty edibles and fewer basic fruits vegetables. But that's hardly tragic that mix of old new. There's always been what makes rome so great and that's what this is all about. You will soon be approaching something very new a busy cross street with heavy traffic. The street is named for victor emmanuel. The second italy's first ruler after unification in eighteen. Seventy one this wide straight boulevard slices right through the tangled lanes of the neighborhood. It's clear it was built. After italy's unification when the city was modernized. Look left and right down the street. The facades are mostly nineteenth century neo renaissance cross the street to the other side noisy streets like this are becoming increasingly rare in rome today to make room more livable.

"The square of the guilt. This grand square evolved from a simple place where businessmen would stroll and paolo together to become a monumental square lined with more than sixty offices of shipowners and traders. This was the bustling center of rome's import export industry along the sidewalk second century. Ad mosaics advertised. The services offered by the various shops walking counterclockwise. Circle the square to read the mosaics that advertised in latin and in pictograms for illiterate or non latin reading sailors. Rick here's a symbol. I can read a lighthouse. Yeah that was the sign of the port of ostia. Green containers are reminders. That green was the major import of austria. The elephant marking the office of a place in present day. Libya symbolized the sale of ivory or perhaps of exotic animals great for parties private spectacles and coliseum. Events the fine mosaic in the corner shows the innovative roman ships when chip technology enabled boats to tack back and forth and sail into the wind. Commerce moved more readily making the meta training a thriving roman free trade zone statues of notable local guild members and business leaders decorated the courtyard. The temple in the centre was likely dedicated to ceres goddess of harvest and abundance or in ostiense case prosperity from good business. Take some time to explore the rest of the square. When you're ready to leave head back toward the theater as you leave the square. Find the small white alter over on the far right. This would have been used to sacrifice animals such as the rams carved into the corners to ask for favor from the gods the entrails could be read to define the future and determine whether the gods were for or against a particular business venture. This altar is a copy. The original is back in rome. Our next stop is the mill a few minutes walk from the theater to get their return to the main street and turn right continue. Down the decca modest maximus two blocks until you reach the intersection. Where the deck modest maximus crosses via day malini. You know lisa while we walk that we just saw got me thinking no wonder it's a copy. Think about the burden on italy of protecting and preserving what's actually all of europe's cultural heritage against illegal digging exportation vandalism weather and pollution. There's even a special branch of the carbonari dedicated to art theft. Okay so no souvenirs about two blocks down the decca modest maximus. You reach the intersection with Malini it's marked by the tempio republicano on the corner to the right via day. Malini marks where the towns first wall once stood surrounding the oldest part of us. Remember us dea got its start as a fort. A rectangular military camp called a kestrel before continuing straight into that oldest part of austria. Turn right down via day. Malini walk about a block and a half to reach the mill. Keep going until you see a sign marking malino. Del silvano.

The pope didn't recognize italy as a country until nineteen twenty nine when the pope and mussalini finally signed the latter impact.
