Cities Of Italy
Transcript of Cities Of Italy
Since 2000, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Il Mio Viaggio in Italia I chose this site because it is a major church in Assisi that has been important in the history of the Franciscan order. In this church, St Francis of Assisi, Saint Clare and many of their original disciples were baptised. It was on hearing Francis preaching in this church in that Clare became deeply touched by his message and realised her calling. Tommaso da Celano related that once Saint Francis was witnessed praying in this church while, at the same time, he was seen jumping on a chariot of fire in the Porziuncola.
This church is actually the Assisi Cathedral, and it is dedicated to St Rufinus, whose body resides within the altar. Cathedral of San Rufino I chose this site because it was built in 1615 on the site of the presumed birth place of St Francis, the house of Pietro di Bernardone. It was then called Chiesa Nuova because it was the last church to be built in Assisi at that time (New Church).
It was erected because, during a visit to Assisi in 1613, Antonio de Trejo, the Spanish Vicar General of the Franciscans, was saddened when he saw the original home of St Francis becoming dilapidated. Chiesa Nuova I choe this site because it is where St Francis preached to birds. It is a small hermitage in a steep forest gorge at the Monte Subasio, four kilometers above Assisi, and the steps and bows of it arch over a quatrefoil-shaped grotto or devil-hole in the smooth pink stone. The word Carceri means isolated places.
In the 13th century, Saint Francis of Assisi returned here during his life to pray and contemplate as did other hermits before him. Eremo delle Carceri 3. Circumvesuviana Interesting facts about Pompeii Circumvesuviana also known as Strade Ferrate Secondarie Meridionali is a group of narrow-gauge railways connecting towns to the south-east of Naples, Italy. Its tracks run around the base of Mt. Vesuvius, and (using a combination of lines), they completely encircle it, as well as running on down the Sorrento peninsula. There are 96 stations in total on the network, and 138 km of track. It is a great track which transports the different places around Pompeii. The Amphitheatre of Pompeii is the oldest surviving Roman amphitheatre. It is located in the ancient Roman city of Pompeii, and was buried by the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 CE, that also buried Pompeii itself, and neighbouring Herculaneum. Built around 70 BCE, the current amphitheatre was the first Roman amphitheatre to be built out of stone, previously, they had been built out of wood. The next Roman amphitheatre to be built from stone would be the Colosseum in Rome, which postdates it by over a century.
