Trans Tiberim (Trastevere)

Trastevere has also another soul, a devoted, spiritual one. Otherwise, where would all the churches come from, its convents, its many houses for the poor, its hospices and hospitals? Ever since the beginnings of Christianity, it was this out of reach land that the first believers used as hiding place when they were persecuted within a babel of languages, in the midst of people that used to reach the end of the month any possible way, between adventurers, pilgrims and women having to use promiscuous ways, a new creed appeared, a creed with its roots in love and forgiveness.
