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.

Crosby, Stills & Nash in Rome

crosby_stills_nash

It was more than rock or folk. It was more than the sum of elements from the Byrds, Buffalo Springfield and the Hollies, some of the most influential bands of the 60’s and 70’s. Crosby, Stills & Nash was way more than the sum of its parts, as is always the case with legendary groups.

David Crosby, Stephen Stills and Graham Nash first got together in 1969 and were joined in 1970 by Neil Young, also a former member of Buffalo Springfield and a rock and roll legend on his own right. The affair beetwen the trio and Young was on-and-off but with and without him the band has earned a foremost place in the rock and roll canon.

The original trio will be touring the United States and Europe this year and will reach Italy this summer. They’ll stop by in Rome July 19 to offer a concert at the Auditorium Parco della Musica.

The Auditorium, designed by famous Italian Architect Renzo Piano, is located at Viale Piero de Coubertain, and can be easily reached from our hotel, located near the station Termini: just take the red subway line until Flaminio and then take the tram 2 and get off at the stop “Apollodoro”.

Eye in the Sky of Rome

eye in the sky

The Wizard of Sound, Alan Parsons, will perform next 23 th July in Rome at the Foro Italico. No excuses, be there at 9.00 pm, so you will not miss the enchanting atmospheric vibrations of this Master of Rock.

Low profile image, with his almost ‘’shy boy’’ look, focusing all his energies in the invisible inspiring force of sound, Alan Parsons worked with bands like The Beatles and Pink Floyd, helping to give birth to authentic immortal masterpieces.

His band, the Alan Parsons Project, offers a cool and sophisticated vision of rock in all its elegance and philosophical aspirations. Just pure musical Hedonism.  For more information about the Alan Parsons concert or accommodations during July contact us at info@yeshotelrome.com.
