Download the November Newsletter! “Carthago Tuesdays” continue while the new conference series “Beyond the Center” begins

2 November 2019

The Parco archeologico del Colosseo has a rich calendar of events in store for the month of November: “Carthago Tuesdays” continue with the calligraphic artist Nja Mahdaoui and the study day dedicated to Phoeno-Punic Sardinia; “Discussions about fashion — Ephimera” return after the resounding success of the first conference; the new conference series scheduled from now until 12 December, “Beyond the center”, takes off, establishing the PArCo as meeting point between city center and the greater urban area, with a focus on sustainability supported by the creation of museum networks; and finally, the PArCo’s commitment to the community continues with our Park-in-PArCo activities.
