The Glory of Parma

Rome Scuderie del Quirinale from 12 March 2016 till 26 June 2016 Every major project at the Scuderie del Quirinale is designed to familiarise the public with artistic masterpieces not just by visiting the exhibition but also through a rich and varied cycle of encounters and lectures held in the auditorium at the Palazzo delle Esposizioni. The curator, art historians and university lecturers take us by the hand on an exciting journey to Parma to explore the school of painting that made the city one of the capitals of the Italian Renaissance – on a par with Rome, Florence and Venice – and a crucial focal point for European taste and painting not only of its own era but also on into the following centuries. Thanks to the fascinating stories and viewpoints expounded by these illustrious scholars, we can once again experience the wonder of the first travellers who began from the 16th Century on to voice their enchantment when confronted with "the marvellous abyss of the great Correggio's painting" and the spectacular talent of Parmigianino, whom even the highly sophisticated papal court saw as a reincarnation of the genius of Raphael.

International of Tennis 2016

Rome Foro Italico from 04 May till 15 May 2016. Unlike the previous edition, the tournament will occupy in 2016 a 12-day span. The Parco del Foro Italico in fact open to the public Wednesday, May 4 with pre-qualifying tournaments that year after year grow in level and technique and will give the opportunity for fans to follow the training sessions of the top players that anticipate their arrival to the Master 1000 Rome. The men's main draw will begin Sunday, May 8, and in the usual combined formula will continue until Sunday, May 15 fielding the spectacle of world tennis players, just like in the Grand Slam tournaments. Particularly attractive is the show of the first day of the tournament, when the true connoisseurs can admire the young champions who dominate the scene in the near future. Also in 2016 the second numbered field will be the Grand Stand Arena: over 4000 seats, excellent visibility, the scene of meetings at the highest level until Friday 13 May. Every day, here, a "long session" that presumably will end in the evening. As always there are three types of tickets. CENTRAL STAND and GRAND ARENA have specific coupons, so different: with the title of the first stage access can not enter the second and vice versa. Both (limited to those of the daytime session) instead allow to follow, like the GROUND ticket, the match in progress since the morning in all the additional twelve fields, so-called secondary, the Foro Italico, the first of the stadium Nicola Pietrangeli.
