Located on the other side of the Tiber River, stands one of the most representative districts of Rome: Trastevere, once considered the gateway to the East as well as the district of diversity, where divinities and oriental cults have coexisted for centuries alongside merchants, thieves, and murderers. Trastevere still jealously and silently guards the secrets of its inhabitants among its intricate alleys and its characteristic squares.
In the bowels of this colorful district, between the bars, the artisan shops, and the historic churches – including some of the most beautiful in town - there is a place where art, magic and esotericism meet to give rise to a unique and extravagant experience. Allow the householder to reveal to you the rare pearls of his collection.
Open the door of an eighteenth-century building and access the heart of a parallel universe, a gallery of wonders in which objects of eccentric charm converge and interpenetrate in an incessant dark harmony.
In the dreamy atmosphere of this fantastic place, each room will seem like a window to many different worlds. Enter them, close your eyes, and abandon yourself to the imagination.
Picture yourself wearing a traditional Egyptian funerary headgear from 330 BC or playing a 17th century Tibetan drum. If you pay attention, you can almost hear the screams of the victims as you wield the traditional shield of the Dayak head-cutters. These and other wonders await you behind the door of this enchanting place, in one of the many dark alleys of the neighborhood.
