Rome is celebrating in a new charming way the theme of nutrion, main subject at EXPO MILANO 2015, combined to one of the best known facets of Made in Italy, that is to say fashion design.
The brand new exhibit at the Trajan’s Market is focused indeed on the transposition of the link “nature & food” on embroidery, textures, dresses and accessories.
The Elegance of Food. Tales about Food & Fashion is therefore a journey through yesterday and today’s haute couture garments by means of photographs, holograms, video mapping and visual-art following the four basic elements: Water, Air, Earth and Fire.
The exhibit is open daily until November 1st, 2015, from 9.30 am to 7.30 pm.
Our staff at Yes Hotel will be glad to provide you with more details!

From now until June 21st, Scuderie del Quirinale (the prestigious building opposite to the abode of the President of the Republic) host a drizzling new exhibition dedicated to the works of Henri Matisse. Common ground of the paintings on display is the characteristic arabesque motif which is part of a number of Matisse’s works of art, the fascination for geometric designs and graphic undulations deriving from the encounter the author had with the Oriental culture during his journeys, as well as from the International lively milieu of 19th-20th century France.  Paintings have come to Rome from some of the major museums in the world, such as Tate, MET, MoMa, Puškin, Ermitage, Pompidou, Orangerie, Philadelphia, Washington.
Ticktes range from € 6 to € 12. Opening time: Sunday to Thursday 10:00am to 8:00pm; Friday and Saturday 10:00am to 10:30pm.
Scuderie del Quirinale are easily connected by bus to Termini station: ask our staff at Yes Hotel for directions!


1200 stanze e oltre 110.000 m²: Roma offrirà a breve un nuovo impareggiabile gioiello a visitatori e residenti, il palazzo del Quirinale. Com’è noto, il neo-eletto Presidente della Repubblica Sergio Mattarella ha disposto l’apertura giornaliera dello storico edificio, che diverrà effettiva dopo i tempi tecnici necessari per ridimensionare le aree attualmente occupate da uffici o utilizzate per eventi istituzionali, in modo da rendere accessibile al pubblico il maggior numero possibile di ambienti.
Il guadagno per gli amanti dell’arte e della storia è inestimabile. Questo palazzo del Cinquecento è la più grande residenza al mondo occupata da un capo di stato, e in generale costituisce il sesto edificio più esteso del pianeta. Ma il suo valore intrinseco sta soprattutto nel patrimonio che custodisce: libri antichi, arazzi, tappezzerie, mobili, dipinti, sculture, servizi di porcellana, carrozze storiche, lampadari all’interno di saloni che risalgono a fine Rinascimento, per non parlare di giardini e serre. L’occupazione del palazzo rispecchia dalla sua fondazione la storia del nostro Paese: vi hanno abitato trenta papi, quattro re d’Italia e dodici presidenti della Repubblica.
In attesa del nuovo riassetto, la struttura è visitabile solo di domenica con il consueto orario: 08:30 – 12:00. Chiusure nei prossimi mesi: 5 aprile – 31 maggio – 1° novembre – 20, 27 dicembre e durante il periodo estivo (28 giugno – 6 settembre).
Il Quirinale è facilmente raggiungibile da Yes Hotel con diverse linee di autobus: chiedete al nostro staff per maggiori dettagli!

Part of Luciano Benetton’s art collection is currently on display in Rome. It’s actually much more than a simple collection: it’s a project, a vision, an image of the world, as its title “Imago Mundi” points out. The chief of one of the most successful Italian brands in the world is indeed very much involved in spreading and preserving the arts, and his ultimate intuition took precisely the shape of “Imago Mundi”. This project aims at showing to public thousands of works of art that Benetton either collected or commissioned to emerging artists during his life-time journeys. These works respond to two main characteristics: they are 10×12 cm in size, they are non-profit. The concept is to create a visual map of humanity, to favour a global meeting of culture in respect of their different expressive means. As an ultimate result, the artists involved will be supported by Benetton’s foundation in finding visibility. By 2015 the project will have reached 100 nations.
Currently in Rome the works coming from Africa: 16 countries and over 2000 artists.
No admission fee!
Where: Carlo Bilotti Museum, inside Villa Borghese.
When: until 11 January 2015. Tue-Fri 10am-4pm. Sat-Sun 10am-7pm. Mon closed.
From Yes Hotel just catch metro line A and get off at Flaminio.
