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. CIR 6388

    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.

    The Colosseum

    Quote on request

    Rome’s symbol throughout the world and proof of Romans’ amazing knowledge of construction. A place where the extravagance, whims and cruelty of the Emperors were loosed and coordinated to gain the people’s favor. However, we are not talking only of the Colosseum. The 78 hectares around it hold some of most famous monuments of the ancient world, from the Roman Forum to the Circus Maximus and the Domus Aurea. Here you can walk by the Arch of Constantine, a huge monument erected to celebrate the Emperor’s victory over Maxentius, Emperor Nero’s palace, through the Roman Forum under the Palatine Hill, from whence the legends say that Romulus dug the trench within which he founded the city.

    Tiber Island

    450.00

    A little more than 300 meters in length and no wider than 90, it is among the smallest inhabited islands in the world and, despite this, houses the monumental 16th century hospital Fatebenefratelli. Myth says that in 291 BC Aesculapius, god of medicine, hid in a Roman ship sailing to Greece in the guise of a snake to seek help from the Gods and save his people from a plague. It is said that on his return the snake escaped from the boat and hid on the island. A temple was erected here to worship him, over the ruins of which the Church of Saint Bartholomy, which today still shelters a miraculous spring, was later built.
