Summer is hot, we all know, but let’s look at the bright side of things and take advantage of the longer days.
Summer in Italy means sitting out late in a piazza watching the world go by, enjoying a gourmet dinner and drinking a glass of fresh white wine on the banks of the Tevere river.
Summer means tomatoes, eggplant, basil, peaches and figs – all ingredients for Italian delicatessen. And gelato to cool you as you explore the city streets.

300 works, 19 installations on display, and over 100 artists involved, this exhibition is a truly unique opportunity to immerse yourself in Italian video art from the 1960s to today.
28.05.22 – 04.09.22 ROBERT DOISNEAU. PARIS EN LIBERTE’. MUSEO DELL’ARA PACIS
Grouped thematically, the photographs on display retrace nearly a century of the history of the Ville Lumière. Taken from 1934 to 1991, they are an unparalleled memory of the city and of the great French photographer who died in 1994.
13.07.2022 – 29.01.2023 DOMIZIANO IMPERATORE, ODIO E AMORE. MUSEI CAPITOLINI
The exhibition itinerary, divided into 15 rooms, retraces the figure of Domitian, complex and unloved by his contemporaries and subsequently misunderstood by posterity due to the historical and literary sources which were essentially against him.
The analysis of material sources, especially epigraphic ones, has recently restored the image of an emperor attentive to good administration and relations with the army and the people, devoted to the gods and reformer of the morality of men.
A story that this exhibition helps to rewrite and understand.
28.07.2022 PATTI SMITH. AUDITORIUM PARCO DELLA MUSICA

04.08.2022 BEN HARPER & THE INNOCENT CRIMINALS. AUDITORIUM PARCO DELLA MUSICA
Ben Harper is considered one of the most intelligent and influential authors and performers, able to transcend musical genres and talk about personal and political topics. And the same goes for the band that accompanies him, made up of great musicians from very different and complementary genres.
AND TO ESCAPE THE HEAT…
The Rose Garden extends along the slopes of the Aventine near the remains of the Palatine Hill, not far from the Circus Maximus and is home to about 1100 types of roses from worldwide. May and June are the best months to enjoy the colourful flowering. Its history, which mixes with the city and some interesting personalities, is also charming. If you want to know more, read it here.

If you want to eat in the shadow of this park, the possibilities are not lacking; from the sophisticated “Molto” (Galleria Borghese) to the more relaxed “Pic-Nic” to the delightful “Casina del Lago”. To you, the choice!
