ROME  –  A GREEN CITY

ROME – A GREEN CITY

casina-delle-civette

Rome offers a wide range of opportunities to immerse yourself in charming public parks and refresh in green nature in the summer season

Rome is surrounded by a wide  countryside  known as Agro Romano, characterized by rustic  landscapes and  agricultural activities . Inside the city itself archaeological ruins  of Ancient Rome (Forum, Circus Maximus, Terme di Caracalla, Parco degli Acquedotti)   form green spaces  fully integrated into the urban fabric.

Other oasis of nature are created by  parks of historic Villas (Medici, Farnese, Este Tivoli, Borghese, Ada, Doria Pamphili, villa  Ada) built on the tops of hills and surrounded  by ornamental gardens

Villa Doria Pamphili  is one of the largest and most fascinating  villa in the city  and is located on the Gianicolo, near the Porta San Pancrazio.

Villa Borghese  the most famous Roman villa, due to its very central location near the Spanish Steps and Via Veneto, once the very heart of the “Dolce Vita”. Inside Villa Borghese you’ll find the Galleria  Borghese art collection that  includes paintings, sculptures and antiques. Among the most famous pieces of art, we can name the masterpieces by Gian Lorenzo Bernini: his “Rape of Proserpine“, “Daphne and Apollo” and “David“.

Villa Ada Savoia is situated in the northeastern part of the city.This property was once the estate of the House of Savoy.   After the fall of the Italian monarchy, this enchanting park became a public property of the Italian state. An area of the park hosts the Embassy and the Council of the Egyptian Republic. It remains one of the most pleasant Rome parks for a walk. During the summer season a music festival called “Rome meets the World” take place in the park, here all the info: Roma incontra il Mondo.

Villa Torlonia  belongs to the Torlonia family. It was designed by the well known architect, Giuseppe Valadier. It was abandoned for a certain time until Mussolini used it as his state residence for a couple of decades. After 1945, it was again abandoned, until a recent restoration gave back all the beauty to the villa, now open to the public.

Villa d’este – Villa adriana ( Tivoli)

Villa Adriana was built between 118 and 138 AD from Hadrian (Publius Aelius Hadrianus)
Adriano decided to move his residence outside the capital, choosing a green and water-rich territory, near Tivoli, 28 km from Rome,
The Villa includes residential buildings, spas, nymphaeums, pavilions, gardens that alternate according to a completely unusual distribution, which does not reflect the usual sequence of villas and imperial domus
Villa Adriana was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1999

Villa d’Este  is a masterpiece of the Italian garden and part of  UNESCO  world heritage, with an impressive concentration of fountains, nymphaeums, caves and water games
Cardinal Ippolito II d’Este, Governor of Tivoli since 1550, immediately caressed the idea of creating a garden along the  slope of the “Valle gaudente”. In 1605 Cardinal Alessandro d’Este started a new program of interventions for the restoration and repair of damage to vegetation and plumbing systems,
Other works were carried out in the years 1660 – 70, when Gianlorenzo Bernini himself was involved.

 

Civita di bagnoreggio

Located on the border of Umbria, in  the Tiber Valley, Civita di Bagnoregio is  squeezed between the two deep ravines of Rio Chiaro and Rio Torbido. It is part of the Most Beautiful Villages of Italy.
For many years it became almost a ghost town, today  Civita di Bagnoregio is connected to its sister Bagnoregio, and to the “rest of the world”, through a very thin and long viaduct. It was rebuilt twice, after the demolition of the old masonry bridge, blown up by the Germans during the Second World War.
Entrance ticket prices to the Borgo
Every day of the year: € 5.00

Ostia antica

The Archaeological Park of Ostia Antica is one of the largest and most famous in Italy, equal only to that of Pompei. Thanks to the nineteenth-century escavations, 34 hectares (out of 50 possible) are rebuilt. Ostia
It seems, according to tradition, that this was one of the first inhabited settlements in Rome (founded by Anco Marzio) therefore one of the oldest areas.
The excavations of Ostia Antica were begun, at the behest of Pius VII in 1800 and were carried out by Pius IX in 1909 with Vaglieri, Paribeni and Calza who helped to resurrect the Ancient Host from the dust of the soil that had buried it.
The excavations of Ostia Antica are located in Via dei Romagnoli 717 and can be easily reached with your own vehicle or by metro, taking the B line towards Laurentina up to Magliana and from here the train to Lido di Ostia up to Ostia Antica, cross the blue pedestrian overpass and go straight to the excavation gate (total time about half an hour).

IDES OF MARCH || 15 March –  Julius Caesar will “die” again

IDES OF MARCH || 15 March – Julius Caesar will “die” again

On March 15th, from 2:00 pm, in the Sacred Area of ​​Largo Argentina in Rome will be played the assassination of Julius Caesar.

The theatrical company ” Gruppo Storico Roma ”  will perform the reunion of the Senate, the discussions of the conspirators and the bloody murder of the great Roman leader.

The funeral procession will lead the public to the Roman Forum, where will be proposed other theatrical insertions dedicated to the characters close to the “Divo Giulio”. We will listen to thewords of Calpurnia, Caesar’s bride, of Brutus,  before friend and then a traitor, and many others.

Idi_2012-12

 

It was March of 44 B.C, Julius Caesar was preparing for a meeting with the Senate unaware of a conspiracy that would have killed him, organized by  personalities related to the Senate of Rome, including the famous Brutus (Marco Giunio Bruto) and Cassio (Gaius Cassio Longino).

The great Caesar was assassinated with several stabs while he was in the Theater of Pompeo.

He was killed because over the years he had become more and more powerful, concentrating on himself several charges and menacing the authority and power of the Senate.

 

His death became one of the most famous episodes of Roman antiquity.

According to someone it became the symbol of the murder of a tyrant in the name of the republic, as for example in the bust of Brutus sculpted by Michelangelo

To others Brutus and Cassius became the symbol of betrayal (Dante, example, put Brutus  in the 9th level of Hell, the lowest level, in the mouth of Satan together with Judas).
Largo di Torre Argentina is at just 10 minutes bus journey from Termini station or walking distance from the main sights: ask our staff at  YES HOTEL ROME for more details!

! ! Happy Women’s day ! !

! ! Happy Women’s day ! !

The international women’s day is celebrated every year on March 8th.

The meaning of women’s day  refers to political, social and economic achievements of women and the fight against violence they suffered in history.
The history of the “ Women’s Day” dates back to the beginning of ‘900 to the tragedy that occurred on March 8th in 1908, in which women workers of the Cotton textile industry in New York, were killed by fire. The fire of 1908 was however confused with another fire in the same city, which occurred in 1911 when  146 victims were recorded, including many women.

Initially the “Woman’s Day“,  was set up to discuss over sexual discrimination and the right to vote.

At the end of 1908 the American Socialist Party decided to dedicate the last Sunday of February 1909 to the demonstration for the vote to women.

So, the first “Women’s Day” in the United States took place on February 23, 1909.
A couple of years later it was decided to follow the American initiative by setting up an international day dedicated to the rights of women. Initially this day was not the same in all countries

In  1944  in Italy the Woman’s day  was set on March 8 and that the symbol became the mimosa,a  seasonal and cheap flower.

Today the women’s party has lost its initial value.

While there are women’s organizations that continue to try to raise public awareness about the various issues affecting women – such as violence against women and the pay gap compared to men – many women consider this day as an opportunity to go out with friends, leaving husbands, companions and children at home
