NATURE, FOOD & FASHION DESIGN ALTOGETHER FOR A BRAND NEW EXHIBIT

NATURE, FOOD & FASHION DESIGN ALTOGETHER FOR A BRAND NEW EXHIBIT

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!

DIGITAL CELEBRATIONS OF AUGUSTUS

DIGITAL CELEBRATIONS OF AUGUSTUS

To commemorate 2000 years after Augustus’ death (the great emperor passed away on 19 August 14 AD) Rome had settled two majestic exhibitions which will still be running for some time even in 2015. The reason behind these long-lasting celebrations has to be found in the deep social and political changes that Augustus’ governance brought to the Roman domain, marking its official shift from the status of republic to empire.
The first of the two is mainly a colossal digital expo which, through the most sophisticated interactive technologies, offers a conceptual itineray developing across 4 cities formerly part of the Roman Empire: Amsterdam, Sarajevo, Alexandria of Egypt and Rome of course. Each of them is currently hosting a branch of the joint exhibit project called “Keys to Rome”. It’s not a random choice: visitors will approach Roman Empire history from four different points of view corresponding to the former four different corners of Augustus’ reign.
The second exhibit highlights instead the impact of Augustus’ rule on the traditional Roman culture. One of the most meaningful changes he introduced has to do with time calculation: he didn’t hesitate to add new festivities and events to the Roman calendar even for propaganda purposes.
We shortlisted for you few info on these two events:
“KEYS TO ROME – THE CITY OF AUGUSTUS”, Trajan’s Markets, 9 am- 7 pm (Mon closed)
“AUGUSTUS REVOLUTION”, Roman National Museum at Palazzo Massimo, 9 am – 7.45 pm (Mon closed).
