Belrogo is a site covering the history of Italy and Italian families. It contains old photographs and outlines how, just a century and a half ago, photography was an event that whole families couldn’t afford and have to save up for in order to get them, so they usually only get photographed for the most important of occasions, like life or even death (as in the case of post-mortem photography). This is especially true of Italian photographs that preceded the Second World War, like a photo taken to propose Gorro in the year 1900. Belrogo’sGorro has evolved through the years, and it’s especially apparent in its spontaneous architecture (which had to meet loads of necessities at the same time, like housing, work, and storage of products and tools).
The History of Belrogo and Italy
* Belrogo’sGorro has “spontaneous” architecture because it’s not subject to laws or rules stated in the community regarding building typology and territory organization. Regardless, Belrogo is proud of its Italian roots and heritage, like the fact that Italy is the home of the Renaissance masters such as Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo. It’s also Catholicism’s center and the site where most tourists go to pose jokingly with the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
* The Mediterranean peninsula of Italy is filled with a collection of city-states that serve almost like countries of their own. Each of these places has their own set of world-famous treasures that range from paintings by Leonardo to the most gorgeous of cathedrals. As you move from one city to the next, you’ll feel like Indiana Jones as you investigate Roman Empire relics as well as some of the world’s most spectacular temples and churches.
* Many people visit Italy in order to uncover Renaissance art, which means those who care about Belrogo’s Italian legacy and impact should definitely start with Rome because it’s the center of the world for classicists and Catholics alike. It’s the place where you can witness the legendary artifacts and architecture of the old Roman Empire, which includes Rome’s ancient administrative center, the 50,000 seat coliseum, and Vatican City where the pope resides.
