31 Dicembre 2013: Capodanno a Roma, Fori Imperiali e non solo

Capodanno-2014-RomaCapodanno in strada per la città eterna. Ad accogliere l’anno nuovo non sarà solo il consueto concerto al Circo Massimo, ma anche i Fori imperiali la faranno da protagonista. Proprio qui infatti, a mezzanotte, si assisterà ad uno spettacolo pirotecnico dal nome “Sipario di luce”. In più, Mercati Traianei mozzafiato, con la traversata a filo teso del funambolo di fama internazionale Andrea Loreni e animazione, artisti di strada, musica e spettacoli si susseguiranno da Piazza Venezia a largo Corrado Ricci, dalle 22 in poi. Ultima chicca non meno importante, due maestose torri alte 6 metri poste alla fine di Via dei Fori Imperiali che ospiteranno straordinari acrobati aerei.

Demetra Hotel reccomends: Anni ’70 – Arte a Roma , Arts in Rome in the 1970s

ANNI ’70. ARTE A ROMA

from 17 December 2013 to 2 March 2014

arte-aroma-1970sAlmost two hundred exhibits by one hundred Italian and international artists serve to explore the art of a decade and of a city in a lively tangle of varied artistic trends and approaches. Rome in the 1970s was a crucible of experimental art, a city that welcomed with open arms all the different visual cultures that ended up forging a unique identity while continuing to reflect what was going on in the outside world.

The exhibition hosts a multitude of different artistic trends, ranging from Arte Povera to the artists of the so-called Roman school, from Conceptual Art to Anarchitecture and art seen as collective participation or as political militancy, and from Narrative Art to the work that triggered a planetwide revolution in painting revolving around the Transavantgarde whose epicentre was in Rome. Each room in the exhibition has been put together on the basis of a different leitmotif: not a theme as such but a trend, a discipline, a mindset, a key word, an intuition borrowed from a critic or the title of an exhibit. The way these leitmotifs have been choreographed has led to a basic division of the exhibition into two parts corresponding to the first and second halves of the decade. But we urge visitors to take our indications as mere suggestions, remembering that each exhibit is a repository of unfathomable complexity and that the arguments selected on each occasion for the plot of the narrative can “travel” in the eyes and mind of the visitor from one room to another and from one exhibit to another.”
