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.

Andy Warhol in Rome

Warhol-Campbell_Soup-1-screenprint-1968From April 18 to September 28 2014, Palazzo Cipolla, Via Del Corso 320, Rome.

Andy Warhol by Brant Foundation is a rare opportunity for the public to be able to see one of the most important groups of works by the artist father of American Pop Art, collected not by a simple collector, but a character, Peter Brant, a close friend of Warhol, with whom he shared the years artistically and culturally vibrant New York in the 60’s and 70’s. Warhol was only twenty years old in 1967 Peter Brant bought his first work of Warhol, a drawing of the famous Campbell‘s Soup, starting what would become one of the most important contemporary art collections in the world.

Through masterpieces and works by lesser-known but equally amazing, as a series of Polaroid never seen before in Europe, the exhibition tells the Brant Foundation is not just the star of Warhol’s art world and the market but also the intimate Warhol, friend, the man.

From April 18 to September 28 2014, Palazzo Cipolla, Via Del Corso 320, Rome.

Modigliani and his band of damned artists in Rome

modigliani

Paris, beginning of the 20th century. Many of the revolutions that are going to change our understanding of the world and ourselves are being planned here. The first battles in the front of art are fought by a little group of broke bohemian painters that gather at Montparnasse and make ends meet selling paintings to a certain Jonas Netter, a shy businessman with an eye for art, deep pockets, and a soft spot for that band of outsiders that paint what most people then consider monstrosities.

Many of those monstrosities will become artistic treasures, specially those by Utrillo and the Italian Modigliani, whose stylized portraits are among the most iconic works of art of the 20th century. Netter, on the other hand, will be known to posterity only through his protégées. More, however, than most of his less farsighted contemporaries can say.

The Netter collection, that includes works by Modigliani, Utrillo, Chaim Soutine and other “damned” artists will be on display at the Palazzo Cipolla, Via del Corso 320, from November 14 to April 6, 2014. The Museum can be easily reached from Yes Hotel or Hotel Des Artistes with the bus 64 from the Station Termini (Stop Piazza Venezia).

Six Nations 2014

Six_Nations_Championship.svgScotland and England will jet into Rome for the 2014 Rugby Six Nations tournament to face the Italian team at home.

The Azzurri will want to improve last year’s performance wen they finished in the 4th place, under England, France and Ireland. This year will see them take to their home ground 2 times. The first home game sees the Scottish travel to the capital on Sunday February 22nd. Then England will visit the Eternal City on March 15th.

England, will try by all means to  win again the tournament as they did for the last time on 2011. The Irish could be among the tournament’s favourites, and maintain a ruthless record against Italy.  Scotland will try to improve the third place obtained last year and Wales will be looking to renew its championship.

The matches will take place at the Stadio Olimpico that can be easily reached from Yes Hotel or Hotel Des Artistes: just take the red subway line and get off at the station Flaminio, then take the tram 2 across the street until the last stop.

Book Recommendation

9788842097686
This is not a blog about books, but I just came across one that’s too good to be ignored.

Elena Bonora’s “Roma 1564″ is authoritative and educational but is also as entertaining as the best thriller. The book documents with great historical rigour a conspiracy to kill pope Pious IV and unveils through its reconstructions the sometimes brutal past of the city and the peculiar worldview of its inhabitants (there are astrologers and treasure hunts involved!)

Unfortunately the book is yet to be translated in English. If you know italian, get it; if you don’t, keep checking for the translation: it’s an indispensable read for those who believe that reality is stranger (and sometimes more intriguing) than fiction.
