Frida Kahlo  // COMING SOON IN ROME !

Frida Kahlo // COMING SOON IN ROME !

 

This Autumn, “ Tirso Space Events project” will come to life and will organize an exhibition called “the chaos inside” dedicated to the wonderful Frida Kahlo.
The exhibition  begins on October the 12th and will end on March the 29th 2020

It will ovreview the entire life of the Mexican painter from various points of view using different instruments and objects, such as original works, photographs by Leo Matiz

This “sensory exhibition”, curated by experts, presents a vision of the life and love of Frida Kahlo through her vibrant letters, her photographs and works seen through technology in an immersive and engaging perspective. It tells the story of a unique artist, going through the places of her  life: her  home in Mexico City, her  bedroom, her studio, the garden of Casa Azul.

Along the way, the viewer gains a deeper understanding of Frida’s relationships with her husband, the artist Diego Rivera and through the photographs of the photographer Leo Matiz, an intimate and personal story of the icon of contemporary art.

Beat the Summer in Rome !

Beat the Summer in Rome !

How can you make  your summer stay in Rome even more comfortable and appealing?

Maybe tasting delicious Italian gelato and  spending a romantic evening at an outdoor terrace of a restaurant after a  daily journey to the beach? Why not ? This could be the best way to complete the pleasure of visiting the Eternal City

There are plenty of great beaches   easy reachable from the Capital. Here you have a few:

1) Anzio

Anzio is  50 miles south of Rome. It has  long sandy beach along the entire length of the town, backed by the imposing ruins of the Emperor Nero’s seaside villa. From Rome, you can take the train from Roma Termini towards Nettuno, Anzio is the second last stop, and the journey takes approximately one hour.

2) Sperlonga

A little further south lies Sperlonga. The waters are warm and crystal-clear. This is one of the most beautiful beaches near Rome

How to get there: Hop on a regional train from Roma Termini heading towards Naples and get off at the station Fondi-Sperlonga, about an hour and 15 minutes from Rome (not all trains stop here so make sure yours does in advance!). From there a short shuttle bus ride will take you to the town and beaches. Get your bus ticket in the train station’s bar.

4) Santa Severa

This beach is on the north side of Rome at  50 kilometres from the city and is  overlooked by an imposing castle! The water is good, if not quite as crystalline as in southern Lazio.

How to get there: Take a regional train from Roma Termini heading to Civitavecchia and get off at Santa Severa, about an hour from Rome. From the station you’ll have to walk about 10 minutes to get to the beach.

5) Santa Marinella

One stop further north from Santa Severa comes the town of Santa Marinella. Here the water is usually calm and surprisingly warm and is  ideal for families.

How to get there: Take a regional train from Roma Termini heading to Civitavecchia and get off at Santa Marinella, about an hour from Rome.

6) Ostia

Ostia is the beach of Rome. The water quality is not so good   but there is always a fun atmosphere due to the high number of bars and restaurants, and if you want to see Romans behaving on the seaside   this is the place to go.

How to get there: Take the metro B (blue) line to Piramide. From here change onto the commuter train to Ostia from adjoining Ostiense station. All you have to do from the metro is change platforms – just follow the signs. The train ride to Ostia is also covered by day or week passes on Rome’s transport system, so if you have one of these you won’t need another ticket.

Book well in advance Yes Hotel Rome  offers a better price and quality to your liking. Excellent opportunity not to be missed for a wonderful holiday.

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!

ROME TOWARDS MILAN

ROME TOWARDS MILAN

2015 is now just around the corner, but preparations for one of its major events are in full effect since months: the Universal Exposition which will take place in Milan from May 1 to October 31, 2015. This giant event is focused on the theme of nutrition from multiple perspectives, including tasting and education. It will involve more than 130 countries from all over the world and is expected to attract approximately 20 million visitors. Rome will contribute to its organization in terms of services: stands and information points scattered around the city center will make it possible to book tickets for any event of Expo Milan 2015 even from the Capital. That’s not all: some special wings in Rome’s airports will offer some authentic journeys of taste offered by a selection of countries taking part to the 6-month exposition, while exhibitions and promoting events will be organized by the respective embassies.
Yes Hotel is strategically placed at walking distance from the major train station in Rome: Milan is at just 3 hours train journey from 2015 capital of culture and trade.

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.
From Yes Hotel just catch metro line A and get off at Flaminio.
