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.

    My Deli Counter

    366.00

    A privileged itinerary to discover Romeo’s deli and bakery through unique products: cheeses and artisanal salamis, with local bread and a glass of wine, listening to the history of each single bite.

    Tasting, as you may know, is not only about taste, just like listening is not only about sound. It is a real sensual and sensory experience that involves all the senses, even the sixth. An exciting journey in one of the most famous restaurants in the world led by culinary experts who know the raw materials they choose just like a scientist would, but who are also acutely aware of the human soul and the emotional functioning of human beings, and are capable of uniting the knowledge of the latter and the former in what industry insiders call neuro-enogastronomy.

    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.

    Villa Torlonia with screenwriter

    559.00

    Villa Torlonia is an architectural jewel in full liberty style, and played a leading role in 20th century history. It was founded as an agricultural estate, and over the centuries became the property of some of the most important families in Rome. Even Benito Mussolini succumbed to its charm, so much that he moved his residence here. Its surprising and mysterious buildings - perfect to enchant children and adults (the Cascina delle Civette, the neoclassical Casino Nobile and the renaissance era Casino dei Principi, as well as Mussolini’s bunker) - will plunge you in a timeless atmosphere that has lived through the history of the city and its nation.

    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.

When Riccardo was born, his destiny seemed to have been prescribed: “My father immediately put a racket in my hand, by the time I was four I already owned one.” He was subsequently recruited by the Under 12 Italian national team and went on to lead them to victory, by 15 he was competing in Italy’s third professional league, motivated by tennis players such as Riccardo Ghedin and Flavio Cipolla. He soon became a certified instructor for the Italian Tennis Federation and completed his training at the Professional Tennis Registry, an American association that promotes tennis around the world.
