Cirque du Soleil Quidam – in Rome (October 2014)

Quidam is the ninth stage show produced by Cirque du Soleil. It premiered in April 1996 and has now been watched by millions of spectators around the world. Quidam originated as a big top show since its premiere in Montreal, but has since been converted into an arena format beginning with its 2010 tour in North America.

The entire show is imagined by a bored young girl named Zoé who is alienated and ignored by her parents. She dreams up the whimsical world of Quidam as a means of escaping the monotony of her life.”"



The first half included some impressive aerial work by a female performer. The show was fantastic and the massive venue of Palalottomatica will help massively. The show wasn’t what was expected and never is. The performances are fantastic and will leave you amazed as to how can actually do it without injury. The best thing about the show was how funny it is. It is hilarious, at points, and wil had the whole of the hall in fits of laughter.

Luxury shopping in Rome

Shopping in Spanish steps and along Via Condotti

Let’s face it, the place is crowded (it is a notorious local meeting point). Lots of onlookers everywhere. But it is truly one of Rome highlights. The site itself is lovely. But it is also located at a place where all the Italian designers are. The palace that hosts the Bourbon Spanish Embassy is nearby facing a column with the statue of Virgin Mary. Behind the steps that lead to Trinita dei Monti church, you can visit Villa Medici (the French Art Center) and beyond Villa Borghese. The esplanade at the top of the stairs offer a full panoramic view of Rome. If you are scared of climbing all these steps, take the free metro elevator up to the church esplanade. By the way, Piazza di Spagna is a regular metro station from Termini. And then, down on the square, don’t miss some of the famous Roman cafés or the house where the British poet Keats died at the age of 25. So, yes, this place is quite unescapable in Rome!

The steps are wonderfully kept. You can enjoy walking up and down them, as well as looking into the fountain at the base and the views from the top. The steps and the view is stunning. There is a restaurants at the top but it seemed to have a very good menu and a marvelous view.

Go early so that that it is not too crowded.
thw whole area around the Spanish steps is a rabbit warren of tiny cobbled streets and well worth exploring. Avoid the tacky tourist shops though! Close to the heart of Designer shop Rome! A must for all us women! take your credit card!

The best way to reach the Spanish Steps is by walking up Via Condotti. Take Rome’s main thoroughfare Via del Corso, which cuts ancient/tourist Rome in half and passes near to a lot of the major sights—then head up Via Condotti towards the Spanish Steps. There are a lot of elite and fun shops. However, the prices are sky-high and the merchandise isn’t really that special—just elite and with a fancy label. So, window shopping is where the fun is here. At the end of the street, the Spanish Steps will loom above you.

A brand new adventure for Skunk Anansie, yet another - in the nearly twenty years of career - the overwhelming challenge for rock band led by Skins, creator of this acoustic tour, started with an argument than the “confidence” that the singer has with the his voice: Many singers do not like my voice, and somehow I am also very insecure and I am afraid to expose my voice without being accompanied by a sound. I asked myself, ok I can sing loud, but I could do it equally singing plan? “

The Italian tour will therefore be a new step in this adventure Acoustic unusual for listeners, and also for the rock band “The perspective is different when sitting on the stage and you need to focus a lot on his own music. (….) meet again during the show in London made ​​us realize how everything was so fresh and vital energy and enthusiasm impossible to forge. we are proud of every album we made, but this acoustic experience is really something special.

Rome: The City of Seven Hills

ForoRome, over the last two thousand years, became center of power, wealth and religion. At its highest peak, the Roman Empire extended Scotland to North Africa and Israel to England. And at the end of the day, the Roman Catholic state is reaching billions of followers across the globe.

Rich families, consulates and/or religious figures hired artists or architects to personalise their villas with statutes, gardens, thermae, theatre, temples, libraries and so on. The Roman Catholic hegemony, for example, hired artistes like Michaelangelo to paint the Last Super and Sistine Chapel. No wander, the rich families and the powerfull did the same.

Obsession to family interest, power and a luxurious life style often engulfed governors, generals, cardinals, popes and rich at odds against each other. This kind of selfish and controversial life style was also wide spread in the peninsula.

Rome owes its architecture, art, history and might; either to those who trampled the poor or to those who used religion to further their apetite to power, money or religious ambitions.

In a ‘modernised and civilized’ Rome, nothing seems to have changed except that now all the hassle is in a more fashionable and refined way.

Yet, Rome is worth watching.
