Given this “Italian Connection”, so important in Rodin’s work, is only fitting to have an exhibition in Rome – the house of his artistic forebears- thaf aims to bring into focus the importance of the sensual and sensorial pleasure in the work of the French master. A man with a broken nose, a couple that kisses with an intensity unrestrained by any mythological excuse (we are looking at you, Canova): the flesh, the body and the unabashed beauty of its pleasures are the great themes of this exhibition.
From February 22 until June 8 the Vittoriano Complex in Rome will be displaying some of the most representative works of the French impressionists, one of the artistic movements that originated painting as we understand it today.
At the beginnning of the 20th century the impressionists, most of them French, set to change art bypainting in the open to re-create the many effects of light, and by favouring subjects of every day life, a mindset deemed outrageous by many, since painters back then priviliged mythological or biblical subjects.
Nowadays the most important impressionist collection is on display at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, which has led some of its most important works for this Roman exhibition. The Vittoriano Complex is located in Via di San Pietro in Carcere, just beside Venezia square and can be reached from Yes Hotel or Hotel Des Artistes taking the bus 40 from the Station Termini.
The Italian team will play in his own field, the Stadio Olimpico, first against Scotland and then against England. Not small challenges, considering that Rugby has gained wide exposure and popularity only recently, but the Azzurri are a tough pack and they sure learn fast.
The match against Scotland will take place Februrary 22nd, at 14:30 P.M; the one against England on March 15, 15:30 P.M. The Stadio Olimpico is located just outside the city center: to get there just take the red subway line (”A” line), get off at the Station Flamino and then take tram 2 until the last stop.
Monsters were a very important part of classical culture. After all, every hero needs a monster to face and defeat in order to stay (or become) a hero.
The exposition at the Palazzo Massimo brings together for the first time pieces from all around the world to show how Minotaurs, Pegassus, Sphynxes, Harpies and Centaurs played a central role in the narratives that ancient peoples used to make sense of the world and ultimately, of themselves.
The Palazzo Massimo Museum is located at Largo di Villa Peretti 1, basically around the corner from Yes Hotel and a couple of blocks away from Hotel Des Artistes. The Exhibition will be on display until June 1, 2014.
Mystery, legend, magic…The first Diva in history. The woman who made ancient Rome gone crazy with love…envy and hate also (like usually happens with a Diva). Now she is back and better than ever…

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).
Is October in Rome, the weather is lovely and we wish you were here.
