Here are more photos from the wonderful Cortili Aperti, or “Open Courtyards” weekend, in May 2019.
We had a peek into Palazzo Sacchetti on the beautiful Via Giulia (many thanks to the terrific young ADSI volunteer there who graciously explained the history of the palazzo to us in English).
Apparently the palazzo, or at least some of it, is for sale, so here’s a look inside for those who dream of a real Roman Palace.
Then there was the small but charming courtyard of Palazzo Cisterna, also on Via Giulia.
Palazzo d’Aste on Via di Monserrato was another hidden gem.
Palazzo Capponi Antonelli’s courtyard (also shown at the top of this post) was lovely, starting with a picturesque entrance.
We also discovered that this last, lovely courtyard is sometimes home to concerts — including this month!
Many thanks again to ADSI for this wonderful event (including the excellent brochure and displays at each location, all with English-language information); and to the enthusiastic and helpful volunteers we encountered along the way.
