In Rome: the NAPOLEONIC MUSEUM

Rome is a city rich in museums.

Among these you can not miss a visit to the NAPOLEONIC MUSEUM, where you will find an important collection of works of art, Napoleonic relics, family memories, which document the intense relationships that linked the Bonaparte family to Rome.

You can admire about fifteen thousand works of art, furniture, objects and relics of the Bonaparte family…

 

 

In this House Museum are exposed not only beautiful paintings with portraits of the emperor and famous people but also objects of common use that will make you experience the sensations of living in Rome in 1800 AD.

The MUSEUM to Touch!

I inform you about the possibility of making a tactile-sensorial visit! Touching the works you will notice how the habits of fashion have changed during the 18th century. Very nice!

Parma: the “Ville en rose”

  • PARMA – Northern of Italy

If you are in northern Italy, one hour from Milan, you will find the city of Parma, the “Ville en rose”, famous for its Prosciutto and Parmesan cheese, known all over the world!

BUT, it is not only the culinary specialties that attract so many visitors! Parma is rich in history, the Duomo, the Churches, the Baptistery, the very famous Teatro Regio which hosts fantastic programs of classical music every season.

Parma "the ville en rose"

Visiting these churches will make you discover beautiful paintings and statues, decorated floors and ancient organs…

Frequent are the references in Parma to his Napoleonic past and to the Imperial Princess and Archduchess of Austria Maria Luigia …

 

Then, a nice quiet walk, through the streets and alleys of a small town that moves by bike, among well-kept shops and lovely restaurants.

 

In short, find out about the concerts and plan to stop in Parma at least one night …. it is an elegant but “young city”, full of Italian and foreign university students

Not to be missed!

The Ace of Cups legend in Rome

The historic center of Rome awaits you with its beautiful fountains.
Among all, of course, the Trevi Fountain!

The Ace of Cups legend in Rome

But here I want to tell you about what you will never find in the guidebooks: The legend of the ACE OF CUPS.

This sculpture was baptized by  Roman people, The ace of Cups, because it recalls the figure of the playing card.

The Ace of Cups legend in Rome
It is said that this travertine vase-shaped sculpture, built by the architect Salvi (who designed the Trevi Fountain), was positioned to prevent the vision of the fountain to a barber who tormented him with negative opinions about the work!

Whims of the artist!

TREVI - The Ace of Cups in Rome

 

Of course, the Trevi Fountain, remains a destination for romantics who throw a coin to return to Rome, but also couples of lovers….

 

If two of you will drink at the fountain on the right, precisely in the Fountain of the Lovers, you will be together forever! Just try it!TREVI- the Ace of Cups legend in Rome(ps: it’s right next to the Ace of Cups!)
