welcome to Tanzania

TANZANIAN COMMUNITY IN ROME (TZ-RM,) is a community that unites TANZANIANS living in Rome and those living outside of Rome who have read, understood and accepted the content of its Constitution and hence becoming part of the community's family. Tanzanian Community in Rome is a fruit of the well designed ideas, approved by all community members at the Community's First General Meeting held on the 30th January, 2010. It is a non-political, non-religious, non-ethnical and non-gender based kind of organization. It is a community that democratically, accepts and respects different ideas from all its members without any sort of segregation.
Tanzanian Community in Rome counts alot on members monthly contributions in order to keep the community alive.But all in all, it appreciates any sort of contribution from anyone.

                                 Rome 30.12 to 31.12.2013

                          New Year's Eve in Rome

As New Year’s Eve approaches, Tanzanian community in Rome highlights a selection of events taking place on the Festa di S. Silvestro, as it is known in Italy, as well as some traditions associated with new year.

The third edition of the marathon “We Run Rome” takes place on 31 December at 14.30. The 10-km course through the historic centre starts and finishes at the Baths of Caracalla.

The traditional Italian New Year’s Eve meal consists of cotechino (a product similar to salami), zampone (stuffed pig’s trotter), and lentils which are meant to bring luck for the coming year, all of which is washed down with a glass of prosecco or spumante.

The other well-known but almost-extinct tradition (in southern Italy at least) associated with capodanno involved people throwing old objects out the window, symbolising their readiness to welcome in the new year.

Some of the most atmospheric places to ring in the new year around Rome include Piazza del Popolo, Campo de’ Fiori and Piazza Navona, while there are many parties taking place in Rome’s clubs: Circolo degli Artisti, Palazzo dei Congressi, Escopazzo, Art Cafe Roma, La Cabala, White, Piper, 45 Giri, and Spazio 900.

Other events include a performance by Emmanuel Djob for the Roma Gospel Festival at the Auditorium, and Italian comedians Lillo e Greg at Teatro Olimpico, while there are plenty of parties at the city’s expat pubs such as the Abbey Theatre, Scholar’s Lounge and the Fiddler’s Elbow.

This year the city holds a free concert at Circo Massimo, beginning at 21.30. The event will be dedicated to women and will feature Roman bands and DJ sets. There will also be a giant fireworks display on Via dei Fori Imperiali which this year is completely pedestrianised from 25 December until 6 January.

Meanwhile one of the city's most unusual and popular sights on the morning of New Year's Day is the Tuffo nel Tevere. At midday, immediately after the cannons fire on the Gianicolo, daredevil divers thrill the crowds by making the 17-metre plunge off Ponte Cavour into the icy waters of the Tiber below.
