  • I don't like graveyards and, when I was in College at La Sapienza carefully avoided the adjacent San Lorenzo neighbourhood that for my taste was too close to the Verano monumental cemetery. The district was created from nothing at the end of 1800, in fact in the vicinity of the cemetery, when Rome became capital experienced a great development and was provided to workers ' homes. The tower blocks were developed around the 4th century Basilica of San Lorenzo, built by Constantine, who because he was in the countryside is still improperly listed as San Lorenzo fuori le Mura and unfailingly, according to Roman tradition, has its own legend: the well-known archeologist Alfredo Barbagallo insists that there are concrete elements in its basement is hidden somewhere in the Holy Grail. The neighborhood, with its popular vocation, in the course of the ' 900 had a history of dynamic that has earned the nomination of "red area" because the inhabitants took to the streets to try to stop the March on Rome in 1943 during World War II, it was the Rome area that suffered the heaviest bombing and, in the years ' 60 during the student protests , was chosen as the site of the largest-parliamentary groups. Today, however, because of the social change that change the target and the anthropology of cities, San Lorenzo has become a trendy neighborhood, "cool" foreign media call it, with a lively nightlife (perhaps too) animated by pubs, taverns, cultural clubs that did lose the spirit warden-popular and attracted artists, writers, students and intellectuals. The focus of nightlife is piazza dell'immacolata, dominated by the homonymous church built since the beginning of the ' 900, that every night is invaded by hundreds of young people who meet, drink, play, eat ... until dawn, and it goes without saying that the district has been gradually abandoned by residents. Even now, across town to go to San Lorenzo and certainly not for the nightlife but for a cinema-the Tibur-that I love so much because it reminds me of the first film Club when we were kids we used to see the films that they made great Italian and international cinema and were key to the company's de-provincialization. Today the Tibur with his merry alternative atmosphere is the defiant answer to the icy shimmer gigantic multiplexes: has two halls and straightforward, costs something less pretentious and full of more you can talk to the conductor and in fact sometimes it is he who gently warns you that Yes that is the day when you get some discount. Programming, just like old arthouse selects the most beautiful and intelligent films in circulation and, once seated you feel tenderness of a lost world when going to the movies was a party, the most beautiful then you were to dream up other lives and other distant lands.
