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

AUTUMN IN ROME

The most colourful season to visit Rome is certainly Autumn.The weather is pleasantly mild until November and the landscape is magical.

That’s the perfect period for long walks and bike tours around the picturesques streets of the Eternal city, in the parks, along the banks of the Tiber

So don’t miss your opportunity to live ROME  and check all our special offers for you on:

Villa Borghese and the “Temple of Asclepius”

One of the must visit places in Rome that combines nature, pleasure, history and physical excercise. You can spent a lot of hours walking, drinking coffee etc. You can ride your bike and enjoy! The Villa is a great place to cycle around and the cafe’s are definitely worth stopping at while taking in the scenery. It’d also be a great place for a picnic, however, there’s not a whole lot else to keep you entertained. It’s only a short walk from the Spagna metro station and the Spanish Steps though so it’s definitely worth stopping at if you’re in the area.

The lake is circled by the walking path “Viale del Lago,” but you won’t be able to miss the centerpiece – “Temple of Asclepius.” Asclepius  was the Greek god of medicine and healing – exactly what your legs will need after all this time exploring Rome & Italy!IMG_6694

From Piazza del Popolo ­- The wide open Piazza is very popular with Romans as well as tourists, for its beautiful statuary and Egyptian obelisk. To the east of the Piazza is the massive Borghese Gardens, a quiet green spot among the big city hustle and bustle. This park is great for strolling, jogging, etc, and I believe you can rent a bicycle to ride around on. On the east side of the park is the most excellent Villa Borghese, a prime site to view art, especially, in my opinion, sculpture. There is no lack of magnificent art in Rome, but don’t miss this place.

The Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome

Auditorium_Parco_della_Musica,_cavea_(Rome)One of my favorite venues for Concerts in Rome is the Auditorium Parco della Musica. They present performers who represent the best of different music styles: classical music, jazz, latin music and electronic music as well.

But the Auditorium is an attraction well worth seeing by itself. It was designed by the famous Italian architect Renzo Piano and is structured in 3 beetle-shaped units that function as independent music halls. The complex includes also a bookshop, a bar and a restaurant, making it the ideal spot for a lovely evening before or after a concert.

To reach the Auditorium from Yes Hotel, take the red subway line from Termini and get off at the station Flaminio, from there take the tram 2 and get off at the station Apollodoro.

Rome: Conclave to Elect New Pope Starts Today

conclave

Today, cardinals from all around the world will meet in Rome to elect a new leader for the catholic church.

According to the Italian media there are a couple of strong names, namely cardinal Scola from Milano and cardinal Scherer from Sao Paolo but none of them seems to be able to get the 77 votes that are necessary to reach the majority of the preferences. Specialists do not expect a quick decision but it’s almost certain that the new pope will be elected before the week ends, probably on Sunday, a possibility that the city council has already contemplated, making arrangements to move the annual city marathonf from the morning to the evening in case Sunday turns out to be the big day.

Tonight rains in Rome and there is in the air a feel of anticipation while the eyes and cameras of the world turn to the Sistine chapel waiting for the white smoke signal that will open the next chapter in the history of catholicism.

Want to witness history? check our availability on-line or send us an e-mail to book your accommodation for this memorable day.
