One of the historical clubs of Paris, the Raspoutine, inaugurated in 1965 on the Champs-Elysees, in rue de Bassano, is about to start "his journey to the world" on Friday 11th March starting right from Rome, a few steps from Piazza del Popolo. Its founder Hèlene Martini was called at the time "the Empress of the Night" and the design, with many little red alcove in Art Nouveau style was realized by Ertè. Among the attendees at that time Serge Gainsbourg, the Agha Khan and Marlene Dietrich.

As told by its new owners, the restaurant was re-opened in Paris in 2010, Ghislain Evraert, Logan May and Benjamin Cassan: "L'esprit, the spirit of the Raspoutine, is to travel through collaborations with the most famous clubs in the world, from London to New York. and as the first leg of our journey could only choose Rome. Over the past five years we have rejected many proposals because for us the Raspoutine has to collect in one place elegance and quality music".

The stage of Paris has hosted various performances, such as the sight of Dita Von Teese in November on the occasion of our 50th annniversario". The idea of ​​opening in Rome was born from the encounter of Antonio Girardi, architect who care Palace Dama, with three French. Girardi then made the club as a "brothel Twenties" (with velvet and red carpet). "We realized we share the same vision of a small exclusive meeting place, thus was born Raspoutine Rome," he says

The Macchiaioli at the Cloister of Bramante in Rome from March 16 2016

The scolarina, the Manes in the wind and Pasture in Maremma by Giovanni Fattori, The visit to Villa and Gardens in Piagentina by Silvestro Lega, The Rio at Riomaggiore, the Pascoli a Castiglioncello and the Return from the Capital by Telemaco Signorini are just some of the works of art of the Macchiaioli ready to invade the halls of the Cloister of Bramante in Rome. The exhibition, I Macchiaioli. The collection will open its doors on March 16, fifty years after the great exhibition at the National Modern Art Gallery dedicated to the masters of the macchie (literally "spots"). The style of these artists comes from the method of coloring "the first" and "real" (learned from Giorgione and Titian) and resulted in the work of a group of painters and intellectuals deeply involved in the reality of the second half of the nineteenth: the stain or spot is loaded with new meanings and became a tool for expressing moral tensions, civil and social.

Sting to play in Rome on 27 July 2016

Gordon Matthew Sumner, aka Sting, after the tandem last year with Paul Simon, will return in the summer in Italy for three concerts: July 27 at the Cavea of ​​the Auditorium Parco della Musica in Rome, 28 on the stage of Visarno Arena - Park Cascine in Florence and July 29 to Assago Summer Arena of Milan, in the context of Music Street Art.

With The Police Sting was able to soften the harshness of punk in an unusual rock-reggae, creating masterpieces like Outlandos d'amour, Reggatta de blanc and Synchronicity.

Since 1985 the English artist, who lives several months a year at his villa in Figline Valadarno (FI), continued to reap success as a solo artist, winning 10 Grammys, 2 Brits, 1 Golden Globe, one Emmy, three Oscar nominations , the Billboard Magazine Century Award, and MusiCares Person of the Year in 2004. He is a member of the Songwriters Hall of Fame and in 2014 received the Kennedy Center Honors. During his long career he has sold nearly 100 million albums between albums released with The Police and as a solo.

At the threshold of sixty (he will be 65 next October 2), brought beautifully thanks to a physical athlete, has reinvented the "classical" musician with the album Songs from the Labyrinth in 2006, brave crossover between pop and classical, If on a winter's night in 2009, dedicated to the songs of the English and Irish Christmas tradition, and Symphonicities of 2010, a mix of greatest hits and rare songs from his repertoire rearranged into orchestral key.

Tiber Island, another hidden gem overlooked by Romans

Tiber Island, Isola Tiberina. is a very small island, according to some the smallest inhabited in the world. The island, long a little more than 300 meters wide and not more than 90 emerges from the Roman Tiber river and it is connected to the banks of the Tiber by two bridges: the Cestius bridge to Trastevere, with the central arch which dates from 46 BC. In the direction of the Jewish Ghetto is the Fabricio bridge, built in the 62 BC, called bridge Quattro Capi, for the Roman herms that adorn the edges. It has the shape of a ship, hence the legend that the island is located in the place of a boat submerged.

But there are many other legends about the origin of this small island: one takes us back in 509 BC when, the last king of Rome, Lucius Tarquinius Superbus, was ousted by the people and as a sign of hatred towards the tyrant the mob tossed into the Tiber a huge quantity of grain belonging to the king and enough to form an island.

But the best known legend is the one linked to the cult of Asclepius, god of medicine. This would explain the connection, which always existed, between the island and the activity of assistance to the sick. In 291 BC the city of Rome was hit by a terrible plague that claimed many victims and the priests, after having consulted the Sibylline books, sent a delegation to Epidaurus, a place of worship of Aesculapius.

The ambassadors returned to Rome on the ship carrying a snake, an animal sacred to the god. When he was closed to the Tiber Island, as reported by Ovid in Metamorphosis, the snake leaped and at the point where he took refuge it was erected a temple dedicated to Aesculapius and the island itself was made architecturally like a ship. On the ruins of the temple it was later built the church of St. Bartholomew on the Island, which preserves a Romanesque bell tower of the twelfth century and, down the aisle of the church, the temple columns.

The ancient medical traditions of that time did not die out with time. In the Middle Ages the island became a shelter for sick run by monks, and continue to this day. Today the island is home for the hospital "Fatebenefratelli" and the Rome's Israelite Hospital.

This lovely island is very beautiful and it is often overlooked by romans. There are nice cafes and a very good ice cream place. 

To reach Tiber Island from Penthouse Apartment Monteverde Rome take tram 8 and get off at Belli stop. Then walk for about 500 meters.
