Bruegel in Rome

Brueghel

It appears that being the son or daughter of a famous artists isn’t easy, that’s why we don’t find in art many examples of artistic dinasties. One the happy exceptions are the Bruegels, a family of Flemish painters whose work will be on display at the Chiostro del Bramante Museum until June 2, 2013.

The exhibition follows  the four generations of Bruegels drawing a parallel beetwen their artistic evolution and the  vicisitudes of their personal lives. To the contemporary eye the work of the Bruegel dinasty might appear odd at times; it uses the same moralistic and sometimes grotesque perspective used by Hyeronimus Bosch, a contemporary of the Bruegels whose surreal slant is greatly appreciated by modern painters.

The Chiostro del Bramante is open everyday from 10:00 until 20:00 (until 21:00 Saturdays and Sundays). To reach the museum from Yes Hotel or Hotel Des Artistes, go to the station Termini, take the bus 64 for for 10 stops and then get off at Corso Vittorio Emanuele/ Navona.

Rome Welcomes Pope Francis

Il nuovo Papa Jorge Mario Bergoglio con il nome di Francesco I

So, we finally have a Pope.

The world was surprised to learn the election was so quick, but was even more surprised to learn that the new pope – who will go under the name Francesco, or Francis in English- was Jorge Mario Bergoglio, archbishop of Buenos Aires, who wasn’t included in any of the preliminary lists made by Vatican experts and probability whizzes at the gambling companies around the world. As the  Roman saying  goes, whoever enters the conclave as a pope, leaves as a cardinal.

With hindsight, the election of archbishop Bergoglio, who will become the first pope to arrive from outside Europe, is a smart one. An austere man who chose his papal name inspired by Saint Francis of Assisi, he is sure to bring warmth and vigour to the church he is called to lead, that without mentioning the immense reserve of devotion and support he will find in Latin America, where the majority of the population is catholic.

Next Sunday, Pope Francis will offer his first Angelus, the public blessing the pope offers every week at noon. It will be a great opportunity to be part of a historical event!

Rome: Conclave to Elect New Pope Starts Today

conclaveToday, cardinals from all around the world will meet in Rome to elect a new leader for the catholic church.

According to the Italian media there are a couple of strong names, namely cardinal Scola from Milano and cardinal Scherer from Sao Paolo but none of them seems to be able to get the 77 votes that are necessary to reach the majority of the preferences. Specialists do not expect a quick decision but it’s almost certain that the new pope will be elected before the week ends, probably on Sunday, a possibility that the city council has already contemplated, making arrangements to move the annual city marathonf from the morning to the evening in case Sunday turns out to be the big day.

Tonight rains in Rome and there is in the air a feel of anticipation while the eyes and cameras of the world turn to the Sistine chapel waiting for the white smoke signal that will open the next chapter in the history of catholicism.

Want to witness history? check our availability on-line or send us an e-mail to book your accommodation for this memorable day.

Deep Purple Rome 2013

Old school still rocks!

deep-purple-tour-2010-italia

Deep Purple, the band that has made ​​the history of rock, after two years of absence from the stage, will perform on July 22, 2013  at the Hippodromo delle  Capannelle here in Rome


There is also a lot of waiting for their new album, their first in eight years since the successful “Rapture of the Deep.” The album recordings have brought the band to close the studio for much of the last  year, bringing the painful decision to give up the summer tour of 2012.

The title of the new album has not yet been revealed, but the statements of vocalist Ian Gillan and guitarist Steve Morse suggest a record that will leave a mark. Morse makes it clear that the same could be one of the latest in the band’s studio. The eight years that separate  “Rapture of the Deep” allowed the English education to tap into a multitude of material written in this period. Therefore legitimate to expect a work worthy of the best Deep Purple.
