Exactly Protected content after Princess Sissi's death (in Protected content , September), we want to remember her and talk about the Habsburg K.K. Monarchy, what it once meant and what it still today means - in the heart of modern European democracies. For our italian history too, of Northitaly of course (Milan, Venice, Garda Lake etc.), but not only this .
Our "back home" of the German Speakers Group Rome, after the summer holidays, wants once again to gather around a glass of beer, a würstel-salad or a Hungarian goulash, our group of friends of the language and of the German culture in Rome.
It will be an opportunity to refresh our knowledge of German in a simple and spontaneous way, at the beautiful rooms of the Bavarian Protected content
In German, but also in Italian and in many other languages, we will remember the great empress of Austria, a figure in many aspects legendary, which binds the image and the fate of the most magnificent Austrian period.

We will not even forget the interpretation of the Empress's character that made her the actress Romy Schneider: she became, through Sissi a real "icon" in the first time of her film career. Long before his extraordinary appearances in the works of Luchino Visconti, Romy Schneider - the grand diva of Vienna - knew its greatest success through the character of the young Princess Sissi of Bavaria.

Is all this today just a memory, or a forgotten dimension of secondary relevance for our modernity and our European cultures?
