Thought the centuries, it has been a theatre of important events as well as the residence of popes and famous families. Emerging from the ruins of the Villa of the Quintili, who were Roman consuls, it was in its maximum splendor during the epoch of the Borghese family. It is owned by the University Tor Vergata of Rome since 1981. Pope Gregory XIII, whose heraldic dragon led to call the villa "Mondragone", used regularly the villa as summer residence, guest of Cardinal Altemps: here, on February 24, 1582 he promulgated the document (the papal bull “Inter gravissimas”) which issued the reform of the calendar now in use and known as Gregorian Calendar. The name of the bull consists of the first two words of the bull, which starts: "Inter gravissimas pastoralis officii nostri curas…" ("Among our most serious pastoral duties…"). Pomodoro and his spheres “Spheres are perfect and magical solids … which I want to crack in order to trace and discover their internal ferments, so mysterious and alive, monstrous but pure.” in Rome The Obelisk (2004) in the Pierluigi Nervi’s square, in front of the Palazzo dello Sport, in the so-called EUR area. In front of the Foreign Affair Ministry building in Rome. In the courtyard of the Pine square at the Vatican. The Social Dinner at the Casina Valadier The Casina Valadier is a beautiful building which rises up on the highest point of Pincio, where in the past great Roman families owned the most sumptuous and vast gardens in Roma. It was built between 1816 and 1837 by Giuseppe Valadier, a well-known Roman architect and urban planner, involved in the important restoration of Piazza del Popolo and Pincio in Rome. Valadier revised in neoclassical style a 16th century building built on the remains of an ancient Roman cistern. The view over Rome from Piazza del Pincio Hints for a special week-end in Rome A unique view over the central Rome from upstairs of the Vittoriano, in Piazza Venezia. It's a monument entitled to Vittorio Emanuele II of Savoia, first king of Italy. The project started with G. Sacconi in 1885 and was completed in 1935. In 1025, in the "Altare della Patria" (the central part of the monument), there was buried the Unknown Warrior, symbol of all people dead during First World War. The style of Vittoriano follows Greeks and Latin criteria. The Statue of the Emperor Marcus Aurelius, below the recent glass cover of the roman garden by Carlo Aymonino, in the Capitolini Museums in Piazza del Campidoglio. Caesar Marcus Aurelius Antoninus Augustus was Roman Emperor from 161 t0 his death in 180. He was the last of the Five Good Emperors (Nerva, Trajan, Hadrian, Antoninus Pius and Marcus Aurelius) who ruled from 96 to 180. They were known for their moderate policies, in contrast to their more tyrannical and oppressive successors. Hints for a special week-end in Rome The Museum of the Ara Pacis by Richard Meyer. The Ara Pacis is the altar built in 9 BC, to commemorate the great peace after the Gallic and Spanish campaigns by Augustus. It consists of a rectangular enclosure inside of which is found the actual altar. The most significant scene in the mostly restored bas-relief is the one depicting Augustus, Agrippa, Julius, and Tiberius. Along the base of the wall that runs along the Via di Ripetta is a bronze reproduction of Augustus' testimonial plaque, called by historians the "Res Gestae" (Deeds accomplished). Hints for a special week-end in Rome The Parco della Musica (designed by Renzo Piano) is a large multi-function public music complex to the north of Rome - in the area where the 1960 Olympics had been staged. Three large concert halls are structurally separated to insure soundproofing, though joined at the base by a continuous lobby. A fourth concert hall is the open air theater recalling Greco-Roman theaters. The complex houses the ruins of a 4th century Roman villa discovered during the construction in the early 1990s. The ruins can be viewed on site and a small glass-enclosed museum with the unearthed artifacts is located between two of the The Mosque by Paolo Portoghesi (1974) halls. The Palazzetto dello Sport by Pier Luigi Nervi (1960) Ponte Milvio (109 aC) “Goal” by Mario Ceroli Exhibitions The“Antonello da Messina” exhibition, scheduled at the Scuderie del Quirinale, is a unique event, bringing together – for the first time in history – virtually all of Antonello’s paintings that have come down to us. The Scuderie del Quirinale have been recently opened to the public, thanks to the architect Gae Aulenti, who gave the building a functional exhibition space "Raphael, from Florence to Rome" a record-breaking exhibition at Galleria Borghese in Rome. The exhibition (60 masterpieces) covers Raphael's painting from 1505 to 1508, the preparatory phase for the Rome period, when the artist reached the peak of his formal synthesis. The Galleria Borghese show is the first one devoted almost exclusively to the Renaissance painter, who in the Eternal City itself created a form of painting that remained unchanged for centuries. If you are fond of contemporary art you can't miss the exhibition of Amedo Modigliani at Museo Vittoriano in Rome. The exhibition celebrates the artist whose fame is mainly due to the “long necks” of his portraits and his innovative style: paintings and drawings that changed the panorama of the XX century Italian Art. A Modì style that greatly expresses the feelings and the moods of his times.
