We are taking you to Rome
Surely you are already familiar with the unavoidable sights of Rome: The Trevi Fountain, the Spanish Steps, the Colosseum, the Pantheon, Bocca della Verita ("Mouth of Truth"), Piazza Navona… and that the beauties of Rome enchanted one of the most famous Montenegrin rulers, Petar Petrovic Njegos, we learn from Ljubomir Nenadovic's travelogue "Letters from Italy". The culture and ancient history of the Eternal City were of particular interest to the bishop, and especially the church of St. Peter in chains (San Pietro in Vincoli). The chains with which St. Peter was tied in the dungeon in Jerusalem are regarded in this church as a sacred object. They are kept in the reliquary below the main altar of the basilica. To emphasize how important the freedom of his people is to him, the bishop refused to "kiss" the chains that the monk brought him, saying: "Montenegrins do not love chains". Since then, this chain has been known in our people as the Honorary Chain.
One of the greatest masterpieces of Italian art, Michelagelo's Moses, is located in the Church of St. Peter in Chains in Rome. This statue is actually the unfinished tomb of Pope Julius II. It is considered unfinished because the original idea was for the monumental statue of Moses to be the dominant figure surrounded by 40 statues, and in the end it was made more modestly. However, the statue is an example of superior craftsmanship and incomparable beauty, for which the creator himself could not believe how realistic it is. Interestingly, one can see the little damage to the right knee that Michelangelo intentionally did to keep it from being perfect. In addition to the mentioned damage, the horns on Moses' head also tickle the imagination, which were most likely made due to a mistake in the translation of the word halo, because in Hebrew the horn and the halo are pronounced the same. There is another interpretation which says that Moses put the horns in honor of the god Apis (the bull).
On the highest of the seven hills on which ancient Rome was built is the castle of Quirinal. It was in that famous palace that the civil wedding of the Montenegrin princess Jelena Petrovic and the prince of Savoy, Victor Emanuel, the future king of Italy, took place. It is written that since Rome has been the capital of Italy, never so many people have been seen in front of the royal palace. All of Rome admired her beauty, and she is still remembered as a benefactress and queen of mercy. The humanitarian work of Jelena of Savoy, to which she dedicated her entire life to and extraordinary care for the population of Italy after the earthquake in Medina, deserves to be honored once again and protected from oblivion as a figure very important for the history and culture of both countries. Call us and we will take you to discover more interesting things about the Eternal City.
Have a nice flight.
Yours, Montenegro Airlines
