In 1984 the city administration built the "staircase of the artists": a sculpture in travertine from Tivoli decorates each turn of the steps.
The sculptures were made by students with Florence's Fine Arts Academy under the supervision of sculptor Vincenzo Bianchi, who also helped other students carve mythological figures from a rock face over the town called ''Europe's mountain dedicated to peace in the world''. They are born from the white stone of Cervara, a series of figures symbols of peace and fraternity with poetries and murales that adorn the country. The last work, in time order, is a bas-relief of approximately 20mē in ceramics, realized from Fabio Piscopo and placed in the little central square.
The houses of local families that traditionally give hospitality to visiting artists who dedicate their works to Cervara are also decorated with wall paintings.
All these works rich the historic center of Cervara where the access to the automobiles is impossible and the surrounding panorama is only greens mountains and wide valleys.
The spanish poet Rafael Alberti (1902-1999), who often stayed in the Aniene valley, called Cervara di Roma ''a sculpture dedicated to the sky, which would fly high if just the air could hold it up''. Cervara, embellished from valuable sculptures, is called the Mountain of Europe for the Peace in the world.
In the town there is also an Arts Museum for Peace with paintings and sculptures.
