WINTER SALES: HOW TO (BETTER) SHOP AFTER CHRISTMAS

WINTER SALES: HOW TO (BETTER) SHOP AFTER CHRISTMAS

For both fashion addicted and just “made in Italy” lovers, winter sales time is definitely the best to land nice items at good prices. They begun few days ago, being over on February 15, which provides shoppers with a six-week long chance to make their good deals. Beyond pointing at the big brands’ venues such as all the area from the Spanish Steps down to via del Corso, via Frattina and via dei Condotti, Italian and International more affordable brands will offer up to 50% discounts. Via Cola di Rienzo (next to the Vatican) as well as via Nazionale (between Termini station and Republic Square) are among the best options. But sales are not just about city center: in the outskirts of Rome at least a couple of outlets and shopping malls meet customers’ desires of Italian brands at good prices. We particularlu suggest Castel Romano’s Designer Outlet and the Valmontone Outlet, which are connected to Rome city center by a special shuttle service or regular buses.
Our staff at Yes Hotel will be glad to provide you with more information about the most convenient shopping spots in Rome!

LUCIANO BENETTON’S IMAGE OF THE WORLD

LUCIANO BENETTON’S IMAGE OF THE WORLD

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.
