1. Stadio Flaminio – The Stadio Flaminio is a stadium in Rome. It lies along the Via Flaminia, three kilometres northwest of the city centre,300 metres away from the Parco di Villa Glori, the interior spaces include a covered swimming pool, rooms for fencing, amateur wrestling, weightlifting, boxing and gymnastics. The stadium was designed by Antonio Nervi, son of Pier Luigi Nervi, the Stadio Flaminio was built in July 1957, on the site of the previous Stadio Nazionale PNF. It was mostly devoted to football matches and served as the venue for the final in the 1960 Summer Olympics. Michael Jackson performed two concerts on 23 and 24 May 1988 during his Bad World Tour. Each concert was attended by a crowd of 35,000 fans, police and security guards rescued hundreds of fans from being crushed in the crowd. Jackson also performed another concert on 4 July 1992 during the Dangerous World Tour. It was the home of Italy rugby union team for Six Nations tournament home matches from Italys entry in the competition in 2000 until 2011. The Italian Rugby Federation announced, in January 2010, that the stadium would undergo an expansion, a failure to progress these plans has been cited as the reason for moving Italys home Six Nations games from 2012. With a capacity of 32,000, it was the smallest of the Six Nations stadiums and it is no longer considered big enough for the Italian national team and there were frequent reports that the national team would move to Genoa or to the Stadio Olimpico di Roma. This change was confirmed with the Italian Rugby Federation becoming upset at broken promises of renovations and it was initially reported that the FIR would move Six Nations matches to Stadio Artemio Franchi in Florence. The stadium was slated to become the home of Praetorians Roma. However, it was decided that Benetton Treviso would replace Praetorians. In 1989–90 season both Roma and Lazio played at Stadio Flaminio during the renovations of Stadio Olimpico, Stadio Flaminio was also the home of Atletico Roma F. C. an association football club who played in Lega Pro Prima Divisione, but were dissolved in 2011

4. Ponte Milvio – The Milvian Bridge is a bridge over the Tiber in northern Rome, Italy. It was an economically and strategically important bridge in the era of the Roman Empire and was the site of the famous Battle of the Milvian Bridge. A bridge was built by consul Gaius Claudius Nero in 206 BC after he had defeated the Carthaginian army in the Battle of the Metaurus, in 115 BC, consul Marcus Aemilius Scaurus built a new bridge of stone in the same position, demolishing the old one. In 63 BC, letters from the conspirators of the Catiline conspiracy were intercepted here, in AD312, Constantine I defeated his stronger rival Maxentius between this bridge and Saxa Rubra, in the famous Battle of the Milvian Bridge. During the Middle Ages, the bridge was renovated by a monk named Acuzio, during the 18th and 19th centuries, the bridge was modified by two architects, Giuseppe Valadier and Domenico Pigiani. The bridge was damaged in 1849 by Garibaldis troops, in an attempt to block a French invasion. In 2000s, the bridge began attracting couples, who use a lamppost on the bridge to attach love padlocks as a token of love, the ritual involves the couple locking the padlock to the lamppost, then throwing the key behind them into the Tiber. The ritual was invented by author Federico Moccia for his popular book, after April 13,2007, couples had to stop this habit because that day the lamppost, due to the weight of all padlocks, partially collapsed. However, couples decided to attach their padlocks elsewhere, in fact, all around the bridge, road posts and even garbage bins have been used to place these love padlocks. As an online replacement, a web site has been created allowing couples to use virtual padlocks, in 2007, the mayor of Rome introduced a 50 euro fine on couples found attaching padlocks to the bridge. Similar love padlocks traditions have appeared in Italy and the rest of Europe, in September 2012, the city council decided to remove all padlocks by force. There was a risk that the bridge would collapse under the weight.

There was some opposition to the building of a mosque but much of this dissipated when Pope John Paul II gave his blessing for the project, one issue that had to be agreed was the height of the minaret and its effect on the Rome skyline. In the end the issue was resolved by shortening slightly the height of the minaret to be below that of the dome of St Peter’s by approximately one meter. The structure is intended to be integrated into the green area, with a mix of modern structural design. Lights and shades are blended in order to create a climate. The interior decor is mainly made of glazed tiles with light colors, the interiors are decorated with simple yet beautiful mosaics creating more optical effects and the floor is covered by an extremely soft Persian carpet with geometrical patterns as well.

6. Ponte Salario – The Ponte Salario, also called Ponte Salaro during the Middle Ages, is a road bridge in Rome, Italy, whose origins date back to the Roman period. In antiquity, it lay outside the city limits,3 km north of the Porta Collina, at the point where the Via Salaria crossed the Aniene, the visible side arches are assumed to originate from the first stone structure built during the 1st century BC. At that time, the Ponte Salario was 72 m long and 6.52 m wide, the large bridge tower was possibly erected in the 8th century, allowing more effective control of the passage. In 1798, the Ponte Salario, which had been hitherto well-preserved due to repeated repairs, was battered by Napoleonic troops, in 1829, the medieval tower was demolished, and in 1849 the bridge was cut on a length of 15 m by French soldiers. In 1867, the once and for all lost its historical character. The Ponte Salario was reconstructed in its current form in 1874, apart from the Ponte Salario, there were other fortified bridges across the Aniene, such as the extant Ponte Nomentano, the Ponte Mammolo and the medieval Ponte di San Francesco in Subiaco.

8. Via Flaminia – It leaves Rome, goes up the Val Tevere, strikes into the mountains at Castello delle Formiche, ascends to Gualdo Tadino, goes over the divide at Scheggia Pass,575 m, to Cagli. From there it descends the eastern slope waterways between the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines and the Umbrian Apennines to Fano on the coast and goes north parallel to Highway A1 to Rimini. This route, convenient to ancients, is now far from it due to modern traffic between north Italy and the capital. It was constructed by Gaius Flaminius during his censorship, sources mention frequent improvements being made to it during the imperial period. Triumphal arches were erected in his honour on the bridge and at Ariminum. Vespasian constructed a new tunnel through the pass of Intercisa, in 77, in the Middle Ages it was known as the Ravenna road, as it led to the then more important city of Ravenna. As the SS3 it remains one of the highways from Rome to the Adriatic. A number of battles were therefore fought on or near the Via Flaminia, for example at Sentinum. In the early Middle Ages, the road, controlled by the Eastern Empire, was a civilizing influence, and accounted for much of what historians call the Byzantine corridor. The Via Flaminia starts at Porta del Popolo in the Aurelian Walls of Rome, Via del Corso, from there it descended to Cales, where it turned north-east following the gorges of the Burano. The narrowest pass was crossed by means of a tunnel chiseled out of solid rock and this is the modern Gola del Furlo, the ancient name of which, Intercisa, means cut through with reference to these tunnels. The modern 2‑lane road, the SS3 Flaminia, still uses Vespasians tunnel, the Flaminia emerged from the gorges of the Apennines at Forum Sempronii and reached the coast of the Adriatic at Fanum Fortunae. Thence, it ran north-west through Pisaurum to Ariminum, the total distance from Rome was 210 Roman miles by the older road and 222 by the newer.
