The Macchiaioli. The Collections Revealed

ROME Chiostro del bramante from 16/03/2016 to 4/09/2016 The exhibition 'I Macchiaioli. Le collezioni svelate' (The Macchiaioli. The Collections Revealed) opens at the Chiostro del Bramante in Rome on 16 March and for the first time offers the public the chance to see important paintings by the Macchiaioli and others, within the context of the collections that originally held them. The works that belonged to great collections of the past – for example those of Cristiano Banti, Diego Martelli, Rinaldo Carnielo, Edoardo Bruno, Gustavo Sforni, Mario Galli, Enrico Checcucci, Camillo Giussani and Mario Borgiotti – are now mostly in private collections and represent the core of the most important 19th-century Italian movement in painting. The over 110 works on display are the gems of the rich collections of great art patrons of the period. They were extremely interesting personalities who shared a great passion for painting, entrepreneurs and businessmen in love with beauty, without whom we could never admire these masterpieces today. Sometimes personally donated by the artists themselves, but more often purchased to support painter friends going through hard times, these works – that give aesthetic pleasure and enrich major collections – have become masterpieces sought after by the great art connoisseurs of our day.

Experience with Caravaggio

Rome 24 March - 3 July 2016 Plazzo delle Esposizioni Caravaggio Experience, a powerful and totally original video installation, adopts a contemporary approach to the work of art to explore Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio's artistic career. The use of a sophisticated multi-projection system on a massive scale, combined with an original musical score and permeated with fragrances, takes visitors on a unique sensoral journey based on total immersion in the art of this 17th century master. The aim is to allow visitors to observe and to explore Caravaggio's work in true depth through a flow of emotions triggered by pure sensoral enjoyment, thus helping to draw a broader audience of experts and non-experts alike to appreciate his work in an absolutely novel fashion.

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.
