“LOVE. Contemporary Art meets Love” is the title of the exhibition at Chiostro del Bramante from September 29th, 2016 till February 19th, 2017. An exhibition which add to the great names of contemporary art history, the chance to take pictures, “tag” with the hashtag #chiostrolove, and follow the thematic routes with audio guide (included in the ticket price) for adults and children. Peculiarities are the wall of love, where you can leave messages and thoughts, and the kissing point, where you can stop and take a kissing selfie.


Among the artists, there are some of the most famous exponents of Pop Art, such as Robert Indiana with his sculptural poems LOVE, which are also the logo of the exhibition; Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann, Gilbert & George, Francesco Vezzoli, Tracey Emin, Marc Quinn, Francesco Clemente – star of our Transavantgarde – and Yayoi Kusama whose installation is absolutely amazing: Infinity Mirrored room, All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins, where in a game of mirrors and lights you find yourself completely involved in the work of art itself.


An exhibition not to be missed in one of the most charming exhibition spaces of Rome.

“Viaggio nei Fori”, l’interessante iniziativa ideata da Piero Angela e Paco Lanciani e promossa da Zètema, è una delle attrazioni di maggior successo degli ultimi tempi a Roma.

Avvalendosi di effetti speciali e tecnologie all’avanguardia, vengono raccontati i due Fori: quello di Augusto e quello di Cesare, cercando di valorizzare i due siti archeologici attraverso ricostruzioni dal grande valore storico e scientifico; a partire dalla storia degli scavi, passando per le rievocazioni della vita che si conduceva oltre duemila anni fa nei Fori.

Fino al 1° Novembre 2015, tutte le sere alle ore 21:00 – 22:00 – 23:00
