  • 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!

  • Knowing the history (or maybe legend) of the Orazi and Curiazi would expect a little more from this monument situated along the via Appia in Albano. Continuously (and perennial) restoration ... with the vegetation that advances inexorably, should be valued and cared for. Also because the affair that legend has it arouses interest and curiosity that the site, alas, does not preserve..!

  • Evaluate a monument or historic exhibit not for its current status, not for its usability, not for what it looks like to visitors (because we at this "community" we are essentially tourists keen, not some scholars), but estimate it "excellent" for what was I represented in history or in his fascinating legends, is really sad! The historical aspect and that of literature, certainly very interesting, must be supportive; alone is of interest for Wikipedia not to! I expect the consultation to Tripadvisor to receive news about what's good or bad that I can see in that place to orient and organize my trip. Specifically this tomb, said of the horatii, which stands on the right of via Appia Antica, in the part that goes to Ariccia, Albano is an interesting ABANDONED ruin, engulfed by a thick vegetation which makes it invisible. The "monument" unique "architecture" and you can see a certain Majesty, remain, besides stand in peperino: the two truncated conical towers to the East almost up to their Summit with their inner cores and two cones to the West.
