Written by aquitodovale

Mid-January weekend, Christmas decorations stored in the attic and everyone – young and old – back to routine. Resuming everyday life, with the fast pace of Roman life, we know, is not easy and, therefore, we all deserve a weekend of relaxation, culture and fun. We need it, because the holidays already seem too far away and the next bridges too.

So what to do on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th January? After closing the shutters of villages and Christmas markets, the capital restarts from culture, exhibitions and theater with a weekend that offers many stories to discover. Here are the events selected by RomaToday for the next weekend:

Stefano Fresi, Toni Fornari and Emanuela Fresi in “Cetra una volta”

Do you know the Zither Quartet?” if you ask a 20-year-old, he’ll shake his head with a sorry emoticon. But just hum “In the old farm …” that he with the bright eyes of those who return to childhood will answer “ia … ia … ò!”. Stefano Fresi, Toni Fornari and Emanuela Fresi bring “Cetra una volta” to the Ambra Jovinelli Theater, a show that retraces the magic of the Cetra, which is part of everyone’s life. Their musical legacy needs no recognition; it’s just there. A journey between past and present, between melancholy and laughter, in the magical wake of a quartet that has become a legend.
