  • This mausoleum is surrounded by greenery and has been for years the symbol of peace between the city of Alba Longa and Rome, built on the bloody fighting between 2 families. Definitely worth seeing

  • Salve a tutti, mausoleum or tomb of the Orazi and Curizi, is one of many tourist attractions and archaeological sites of Albano Laziale, on which hangs the mythical heroes of Rome and Alba Longa fratricide challenge. On the right side of the Via Appia, at the edge of downtown in the direction of Ariccia, is sumptuous. the mausoleum built in the first century. in late Republican age, it is characterized by two conical towers on square base in peperino. From the top of the bridge, admires his former glory and you can enjoy a panoramic view with the backdrop of the Church of the truly fabulous Star. Having regard to the Visual impact of the monument, it is a great pity that the same cannot be valued as it deserves with adequate lighting, restoration, cleaning outside the area, and the opening of the site which is perpetually closed. Abroad, France in the lead there are more museums than archaeological!!

  • I had planned a half-day spent at Albano to visit it at best. I thought that the richness and beauty of its monuments went enjoyed calmly. But the expectation is way off the mark, because I had the misfortune to start right from the tomb of the Orazi and Curiazi. Upon arrival gates were wide open. I think it's time issues. Seeking a sign and, instead of opening, I discover that you announce renovation work. At that point I look better and are attracted by 23 January 2014 completion dates: beginning, duration 90 days (that's right, 90 days). That is the deadline for the end of the restoration work expired more than three years and no one feels compelled to advise of why and how; No one apologizes to visitors that instead of the grave must be exposed to the sight of a harness construction. But there's more: now we head for Santa Maria della Rotonda, another Pearl of Albano. Here the sign of times there is, but it's just comforting, because we find that the Church open just hours a week and at that time of course is closed. Certainly, the Church depends on the diocese, not the Superintendent, but the result is the same. An appeal to the city of Albano: coming, do not have the impression of being in a place rich with history and glory. You do not have the impression that the municipality has awareness of the treasure that is found in your hands and its potential. Do not breathe the identity that the city deserves, but that of an anonymous place like few others. Too bad!
