The Dimora degli Dei
boasts a wonderful location immersed in centuries-old history.
The Dimora degli Dei takes its name from one of the most prestigious monuments in Rome Thel Pantheon.
The word Pantheon in fact coming from the Greek word τό πάνθειον which means the totality of the Gods. Commissioned in 27-25 BC by Emperor Marco Vipsanio Agrippa, at the start of the 8th century it was converted into a Christian basilica, named Santa Maria della Rotonda, the name of the opposite square. It was the first pagan temple converted for Christian worship. The Pantheon is in fact a true engineering masterpiece, the insertion of a round hall at the back of the pronaos of a temple, having no precedent in the ancient world. The Pantheon being also the result of perfect mathematical calculation; it being a sphere in shape, its height being equal to the radius: 43 m and 44 cm by 43 m and 44 cm. The only opening of the Pantheon being the oculus, measuring approximately 9 m in diameter, through which light, heat and even rain enter. Due to the rain in fact the flooring has 22 drilled holes in it to allow the rain to filter through.
The Trevi Fountain
is undoubtedly one of the most famous fountains in Rome, dating back to the late Baroque era. The theme of the entire work being the sea: taking the form of a rocky cliff, with the statue of Oceanus guiding a shell-shaped chariot drawn by two winged horses, guided by mermen. Four large Corinthian columns support the upper facade, on which there are four smaller allegorical statues in the vicinity of each column: from left to right, “The Abundance of Fruit”, “The Fertility of the fields”, “The Autumn abundance” and “ The Pleasure of the gardens”. The fountain has become an icon of both Italian and international cinema, thanks to “La Dolce Vita” by F. Fellini and also the source of numerous legends. The most famous of which states that if you toss a coin with your back towards the mountain, with your eyes shut and with your right hand on your left shoulder, you will be sure to return to Rome.
