Description

This unique and beautiful two bedroom apartment is the residency of the known Italian private art collector. An art collection unique in its kind and known internationally born from the passion and a life dedicated to contemporary art. The collection is located in the center of Rome in one of the historic buildings of Piazza dell'Orologio - among the architectural works of Francesco Borromini that, over time, has become a meeting point between artists, directors and intellectuals of the Roman scene and beyond. The owners have chosen to make art a special space within their daily lives, as it can be understood by entering the collection - disseminated in all the rooms of the house - and creating opportunities for study, exhibitions, performances, talks and presentations. Today, the collection is a perfect fusion of contemporary art and tradition. In the collection we can find world-renowned artists and young people such as Marina Abramovic, Alighiero Boetti, Mario Schifano, Pascal Marthine Tayou, Luigi Ontani, Chen Zen, Nico Vascellari, Luisa Rabbia and Jonathan Monk. An innovative and stimulating unconventional space where you will breathe the art like nowhere else.

    Quote on request

Our expert guide will lead you a place where the ancient world meets modernity to reconstruct the beauty of a long-gone past. This digital journey will reconstruct Palazzo Valentini in all its phases through history, reaching back through time to the remains of an aristocratic Ancient Roman Domus. The reconstruction of the reliefs that decorate Trajan’s Column, or those depicting the military campaigns against the Dacians, are surprising.

    Rome from above

    Start on the Aventine Hill, the beauties of which have been sung by poets like Carducci and D’Annunzio, and discover the scents and charm of the Parco Savello, the Garden of Oranges where Saint Dominic planted the first bitter orange tree, which to this day you can still find there. Peek through the famous “keyhole” of the Priory of the Knights of Malta, through which the Vatican Cupola will appear in a new, breathtaking perspective. Move to the Gianicolo terrace and its unique view of Rome. A true Renaissance treasure, which also holds the Tempietto del Bramante. Finally, on the opposite side of the city, inside the magnificent Villa Borghese, you will find the terrace of the Pincian Hill.

    The Casino Giustiniani Massimo

    Quote on request

    This 17th-century villa, its rooms decorated by German painters active in Rome in the first half of the 19th century, is far from the beaten track. The Casino Giustiniani was built at the beginning of the 16th century as a country residence by Vincenzo Giustiniani, and was later acquired by the Massimo family. They commissioned the Nazarenes to decorates the three rooms on the ground floor with frescoes in the fashion of the great Italian masters of the past. This resulted in a number of exquisite masterpieces. Through the language of images the walls read the texts that have shaped Italian history, from Dante’s Divine Comedy to Tasso’s Jerusalem Delivered through Ariosto’s Orlando Furioso.

    Centrale Montemartini

    Quote on request

    The combination of ancient statues and busts with the technological devices of Rome’s first public electrical power plant is an exciting sight to behold. The plant ceased all activity in the early 1960s and remained out of use until 1997, when it received the loan of a number of sculptures from the Capitoline Museums. This was meant to be temporary, but instead became a permanent exhibition. It represents an extraordinary example of museum conversion, a visual pastiche that results in a very evocative effect.

    Saint Peter

    Quote on request

    The grandeur of the cathedral, the cupola and the square with its colonnade: a crossroads where the skill of the greatest artists in history meets to give life to one of the most incredible feats of architecture. Photos, videos, postcards and films all reproduce what is perhaps the most important and well-known holy building in the world. The first stone was set by Emperor Constantine, who placed it on the ground where the apostle Peter first stood. Over the centuries the structure was changed by the hands of the greatest artists of all time. From Bramante, Raffaello and Michelangelo to Della Porta, Fontana and Maderno, before its consecration in 1626. On the inside it conceals Michelangelo’s timeless Pieta’ and Bernini’s bronze Baldachin. Then, let your guide lead you to the base of the obelisk set in the center of the square and prepare to be amazed by the colonnade and the ingenious illusion of perspective it affords.

    The urban Rationalis of Eur

    650.00

    "EUR" is the acronym for European Universal Exhibition. And it is no coincidence, because the neighborhood was created specifically to host the eponymous event in 1942. Designed in 1935, it was finally completed 15 years later, following World War II. Dominated by urban rationalism and architecture that clearly recalls the Roman Classical style, typical of the fascist period, in recent years EUR has began a new season of splendor, thanks to high value development projects such as the “Nuvola”, an ambitious project designed by architect Massimiliano Fuksas. The walk will end with a visit to the local Sunday market, a delightful mix of antiques and trinkets.
