  • I'm very aware of love the unique setting of villa Celimontana, which therefore I visit when I can, following which often hosts musical and cultural events during the summer season. Within this framework, the Spire of the Mattei family, hence the name Matteiano, is placed in perspective position at the end of an avenue in the so-called "Grove of the muses" (once adorned the center of the square just after the entrance to the villa. Is one of the thirteen obelisks that Rome hosts, (first city in the world-superior even to Egypt, for the presence of such monuments), along with its twin Macuteo Obelisk that adorns the fountain in front of the Pantheon, was from the Helios Temple of Heliopolis.

  • Very tranquil place, waiting for santo Stefano Rotondo to reopen.
  • One of the only 8 rare ancient egyptian obelisks in Rome, in opposite to one in villa Borghese park this one is not a roman copy but original. Over the ages it lost height so about 2m of hieroglyphs remain on the very top, attached to more recent bottom addition. There are also inscriprions on the base in latin.

  • Veh, an Egyptian obelist from the time of Ramses II in Rome, is even more there than in Egypt... maybe he feels Roman! Now it's almost tucked away in a hidden villa just enough to load its picturesque value
