This is Affordable Art Fair Milan from March 12th to 17th. We promise, whether you like graphics, paintings, photographs or sculptures, you won’t be disappointed.
Pitti Uomo – If you’ve ever have wondered what is the essence of the Italian elegance, between Jan 12th and 15th you’ll have the chance to see it with your eyes. If it happens to you to see stylish men going around, spot fashionable bloggers taking pictures here and there, feel like being part of a fashion show don’t worry, is “just” Pitti Uomo, the “world’s most important platform for men’s clothing and accessory collections”. Where? At the Fortezza of course!
Music in Paradise – Rossini, Händel, Schumann..if you are a music and art lover then you’ve got more than one reason to put this on your agenda. From January to March 2016 three concerts are programmed in the heavenly frame of the Sala del Paradiso, a big space in the Museo dell’Opera del Duomo in which the ancient façade of the Duomo is reproduced. A reservation has to be done, since there’s just 200 seats for each concert and they are for free!
Rome Marathon – Starting from today, you still have 112 days to train yourself and take part to the Rome Marathon on April 10th. The route is so beautiful that won’t even feel tired. Want a preview? Well, imagine to start from the Capitoline Hill, run by the Roman Forum and the Coliseum, and to end in an iconic place like the ancient Roman hippodrome Seriously, is there any better place in the world?
Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy – In case you need an extra reason to visit the Eternal City, consider that 2016 will be the year of the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy announced by Pope Frances. Jubilees are a catholic tradition since 1300 which attract millions of pilgrims to Rome asking forgiveness for sins. The crucial moment for the pilgrim is the passage through the holy door. Even if for the first time ever have been opened thousand of holy doors all around the world, the most symbolic one is of course the one in St Peter in Vatican City. A registration to the events can be made here.
Well, it seems that there’s a lot to do 🙂
Just one little thing…We wish you a merry Christmas and a bubbly New Year!
