ALL THE BEST OF ILLUSIONS AT “SUPERMAGIC”

ALL THE BEST OF ILLUSIONS AT “SUPERMAGIC”

For one week Rome will be offering the chance to go far beyond the real world and enter the realm of magic and illusion… a realm where the place of the physics rules is taken by the invisible power of marvel.
This will be happening in one of the greatest Roman theatres, Teatro Olimpico, on occasion of the Festival of Magic, from January 29 to February 8. The most skillful magicians, illusionists, conjurers and manipulators from Europe, Asia and America will be gathering in the Eternal City to give life every night to a world where everyone will feel comfortable regardless of age and native country.
Quite interestingly, the artists performing at “Supermagic” will personally look after the several backstage steps, to make sure of the secrecy of their tricks.

ALL ROADS LEAD TO ROME: ROME MARATHON 2015

March 22, 2015, 8:50 am: runners, walkers, Eternal City’s lovers from all over the world save this date, the day of Rome Marathon 2015.
This traditional sport event, a major one in Italy due to the amount of participants, has come to the 21st edition. As usual, competitors will run for 42 km 195 m along a path which passes across several famous spots in the city center, leading to areas off the beaten tracks of tourists but still enchanting in their own way, to end up exactly where it all began: at via dei Fori Imperiali. Registration deadline expires on March 5. Maximum time to conclude the marathon is 7 hours, while on the ground of previous editions the professional runners’ time is actually estimated around 2 hours (2014 marathon was won by two Ethiopian athlets: Shume Hailu with his 2:09:47, and Ayelu Lemma with her 2:34:49).
Besides the Maratona di Roma, a non-competitive event will take place on the same day: the so called Romafun, “La Stracittadina”, an occasion open to everyone (youngsters, elderly, families with pets) to take together a 5 km walk from via dei Fori Imperiali (starting at 9:10 am) to Circo Massimo. Registration deadline in this case is just on the day before, March 21, upon € 8 fee (which gives right to the official t-shirt).
Don’t miss the chance to visit Rome on occasion of this great event! Yes Hotel will be the perfect accommodation for you in the city center!

THE MAGIC OF CINEMA IN A PARK: CINECITTÁ WORLD

THE MAGIC OF CINEMA IN A PARK: CINECITTÁ WORLD

You can now touch for real the magic of cinema in a brand new thematic park in Rome: Cinecittà World. Its name clearly reminds us of the greatest cinema studios in Italy which in the past decades were home to major actors and directors of the international scene. This park, far from being a mere commemoration of the past glory, projects visitors directly into a high tech cinematic illusion thanks to a skillful combination of live shows, movie sets, amusement areas, restaurants, shopping and green zones where every single detail is meant to produce the impression of being into a movie and feeling like a star. Cinecittà World perfect illusionism is due to the highly refined designs by Oscar winner set designer Dante Ferretti, and music atmospheres by Oscar winner musician Ennio Morricone. The park regularly hosts special events as well, for both kids and adults.
Cinecittà World provides its guests with a special shuttle service from Termini station which will take you there in the easiest way. Yes Hotel will be glad to help you out with more info!

“LO SCHIACCIANOCI”: IL BALLETTO PER GRANDI E PICCINI

“LO SCHIACCIANOCI”: IL BALLETTO PER GRANDI E PICCINI

“Lo Schiaccianoci” di Petr Il’ic Cajkovskij è a Roma anche quest’anno nel periodo delle feste natalizie per offrire una serata d’incanto a grandi e piccini. Come sempre accade per i capolavori che travalicano i limiti del tempo e dello spazio, anche questo racconto, portato sul palcoscenico dal Balletto di Roma, può essere letto e apprezzato a diversi livelli. La dimensione favolistica ha infatti il background amaro di un tema a cui di certo tutti gli adulti sono sensibili: il passaggio doloroso dall’età della fanciullezza a quella adulta. L’allestimento di Mario Piazza riesce a sottolineare in maniera non scontata proprio questo aspetto.
Dove: Auditorium Conciliazione, Via della Conciliazione 4 (metro: Ottaviano San Pietro o bus # 40).
Quando: 30 dicembre 2014 – 6 gennaio 2015.
Biglietti: €13-€45.

AMERICAN THANKSGIVING DAY IN ROME

AMERICAN THANKSGIVING DAY IN ROME

On the last Thursday of November it traditionally falls one of the most important public holidays in the USA: Thanksgiving Day. Despite its birth dates back Christian Protestant England, its American roots are conventionally identified with the harvest celebrations which would have been performed by the first Pilgrims in 1621 in the town of Plymouth. Since then, the meals cooked upon this festivity changed with time passing (at that stage, for instance, potatoes and sweet potatoes where not yet so regular in the English diet; sugar, requested by the cranberry sauce, was still too expensive, and pumpkin pie was suffering the lack of crust ingredients): today we have a menu where roasted turkey can’t be missing.
To embrace the spirit of its American visitors, Rome will be celebrating as well on 27 November 2014 with special arrangements in restaurants, pubs and places such as Palazzo Sciarra (where Norman Rockwell’s exhibit is on), and Cinecittà World (the biggest amusement park on Italian cinema industry). Ask Yes Hotel staff for full programme on events & venues!
