In this post, we are going to present to you a little history from the heart of the city of Rome, Italy. Namely, we are moving now to the Castel Sant’ Angelo or in English Castle of the Holy Angel, which is a mausoleum of Hadrian.
Hadrian was a Roman emperor from 117 to 138 and he initially commissioned the mausoleum for himself and his family.
The building was later used by the popes as a fortress and castle. Today this towering cylindrical building in Parco Adriano in Rome, Italy is a museum. With this post, we would like to combine music and history into one.
So, that you can have the opportunity to get acquainted with the history of the city of Rome, where the guys in the video below played the classic hit of Dire Straits, “Sultans of Swing.”
If you have ever been to Rome and had the opportunity to walk around the city, then you’ll know very well that this is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.
Also, Rome hides a lot of history and our band is one of those best bands in the history of the music. So, Dire Straits in the heart of Rome is one great combination for us!
The video below is uploaded on YouTube on April 21, 2019. Unfortunately, we haven’t the names of these two street musicians, but anyway they’re really good at what they do.
Check out their performance below in the almost 3-minutes video. They also make some improvisation during the session but they are still good, and from the musical side they made a remarkable solo.
