LA LUNA AL FORO ROMANO
On the 22nd of April the fascinating path at the Roman Forum opens every friday during nighttime from 20:15 to 24:00 with guided visits (last entry at 22:45). The itinerary starts at the Basilica Emilia, built in 179 BC where all activities of the Forum where held, in a covered space, during bad weather conditions. From here the lights show the row of colums who divide the space of the basilica perfectly. The intinerary continues to the right towards the Temple of Divo Giulio and leads to the impressive building of the Curia Julia, seat of the Roman Senate. The tour passes in front of the church S. Maria Antiqua, reopened for public after 30 years and where unique paintings from the Christian world of the first millennium are shown, dating from the sixth to the ninth century. Then the visit turns to the Via Sacra to reach the Arch of Titus while passing by the Temple of Antonino and Faustina, constructed in 141 AD. The restoration revealed the beauty of the six huge marble columns, 17 meters high.

PIER LUIGI NERVI - ARCHITETTURE PER LO SPORT
This exhibition features a host of drawings, photographs, documents and models from over 60 projects for sports facilities, much of drawn from the Nervi Archive in the MAXXI Architettura collections. A unique opportunity to examine the development of the design and constructional methods of the engineer from the first works such as the Stadio Berta in Florence to the buildings for the 1960 Rome Olympics and through to the great international projects such as the Kuwait Sports Centre. Three-dimensional graphic presentations and constructional models realised by La-Mo and LaMoViDA of the University of Bolognas enrich as section devoted to the projects for stadia in Italy and abroad. Also on show is a special model in Plexiglas of the Palazzetto dello Sport made by two students from the ISIA, the Istituto Superiore per le Industrie Artistiche (Rome), Aureliano Capri and Elettra Renzi, revealing the system for distributing forces conceived by Nervi for the building. This model constitutes a central element in a series of guided visits devoted to Nervi’s work that also include a “tactile” route designed for blind and partially-sighted people. Realised in collaboration the Centro Regionale Sant’Alessio, the route involves a walk around the Palazzetto dello Sport introducing participants to the built structure and an exhibition visit facilitated by the model and tactile tables.

Edgar Honetschläger - LOS FELIZ
Padiglione 9A MACRO Testaccio will open a show by renown Viennese artist and filmmaker Edgar Honetschläger entitled LOS FELIZ in association with the Cineteca Nazionale who will host the Italian film premiere of the feature-length movie LOS FELIZ and the XXX who will offer additional screenings. Hide text The exhibition and the film screenings will provide an insight into an outstanding project that took the artist and film maker 15 years to realize. Out of those Honetschläger spent three and a half years in order to paint and draw iconographic images of the land of the free. A section of this very comprehensive oeuvre that consists of 18 Japanese ink paintings each 4x16m (13x51 feet) and some 250 drawings – some as big as 5x8m (15x25ft) will be presented at MACRO Testaccio at Hall 9A. In the movie LOS FELIZ the huge paintings are transported by a specially made machine that creates the illusion of a car driving through American landscapes. This rolling panorama machine of huge dimensions – that discloses the mechanism behind the production of the film – will be presented as an installation. Christianity is the only religion that has made imagery the principal source of its persuasive power. Building on this fact, Edgar Honetschläger’s LOS FELIZ posits “Those who make the pictures rule the world” and consistently connects the two capital cities of picture production/manipulation: Rome/the Vatican with Los Angeles/Hollywood. But there is a force that wants to challenge this supremacy of the West… Like the genesis the feature film LOS FELIZ has a seven-day structure - the first day taking place in Rome, the last one in Los Angeles, the five days in between being a road trip from East to West coast portraying a two-dimensional, black and white America laying out the classic iconography of American road movies. LOS FELIZ packs the vastness of the North American continent into one room. A fairy tail, both comedy and drama that caricatures the global omnipresence of Western imagery and Hollywood pictures with humor and irony, although it does not forget to make fun of itself, the illusion film and the genre road movie. The artist / film director on the movie: "The movie fulfills itself in Los Feliz – the central region of Los Angeles, abutting Hollywood, noted for its expensive historic homes and celebrity inhabitants – where the protagonist encounters her alter ego, who is desperately seeking fame. Los Angeles knows no seasons – reason why the film industry moved there – permanent blue skies, watersprinklers, manicured gardens. Whenever you look out of the window nothing changes - ever. The only thing that changes is you. You look into the mirror - a new wrinkle! Los Angeles' permanence cannot encompass humans. That is why the beauty industry is dominating its inhabitants. The promise of eternal youth is programmatic and Hollywood films have been transporting this ideology to the rest of the world for decades." Edgar Honetschläger, born and raised in Austria, is an artist and film-maker who spent five years in the USA, twelve years in Japan, three years in Italy and a year in Brazil. He participated in Documenta X among major international museums as well as the Berlinale and Cannes Film Festival, among hundreds of film festivals around the globe.

LOVE - L’ARTE CONTEMPORANEA INCONTRA L’AMORE
From 29 September 2016 to 19 February 2017 Chiostro del Bramante in Rome hosts LOVE. Contemporary art meets amour, curated by Danilo Eccher. Chiostro del Bramante is celebrating its 20th anniversary with an exhibition of international significance. It has been years since Rome’s cultural landscape witnessed anything like this not-to-be-missed event, which endeavours to bring the city up to the level of the most respected international exhibition venues. For the first time, some of the most important contemporary artists will be shown together, including Yayoi Kusama, Tom Wesselmann, Andy Warhol, Robert Indiana, Gilbert & George, Francesco Vezzoli, Tracey Emin, Marc Quinn, Francesco Clemente and Joana Vasconcelos, with artworks that speak in highly experiential languages (Kusama’s All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins is one of the most instagrammed in the world), created to engage visitors with different kinds of stimuli. Art meets love. The exhibition aims to tackle an emotion that is universally recognized and constantly studied and represented – Love – showing its various facets and its infinite manifestations: love that is happy, that is longed-for, misunderstood, hated, ambiguous, transgressive, or childish, love that unfolds along an unconventional exhibition route featuring visual and sensory input. Love goes beyond the concept of the museum. In this exhibition, it’s the visitors who really tell the story, as they reappropriate the display spaces and become consumers and communicators at the same time, being freely allowed to photograph all the works on display (official hashtag: #chiostrolove). The experience of the museum is an experience of 360° sensory involvement, fully embracing the concept of the continuously evolving ‘open access’ museum. In addition, in connection with DART Chiostro del Bramante’s scientific project, visitors can experience a truly unusual active guide by selecting, for the first time, from among 5 “audio partners”: John, Coco, Amy, David and Lilly will be the special travel companions on this journey. Depending on the type of experience each visitor would like to embark on, they will describe the works on display and help visitors appreciate the emotions they hold. The Audio Guides were created by Zeranta Edutainment srl, a company that specializes in education and entertainment. Featured artists: Vanessa Beecroft, Francesco Clemente, Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg, Tracey Emin, Gilbert & George, Robert Indiana, Ragnar Kjartansson, Yayoi Kusama, Mark Manders, Ursula Mayer, Tracey Moffatt, Marc Quinn, Joana Vasconcelos, Francesco Vezzoli, Andy Warhol, Tom Wesselmann.
