NATURE, NUTRITION & HIGH FASHION DESIGN ON DISPLAY!

NATURE, NUTRITION & HIGH FASHION DESIGN ON DISPLAY!

The Elegance of Food. Tales about Food & Fashion is the brand new exhibit at the Trajan’s Market entirely focused on two strong points of Made in Italy: food and fashion indeed.
The exhibition takes visitors on a journey across the link between nature and nutrion as it was and still is transposed in high fashion design. Water, Air, Earth and Fire appear then as inspiring motifs of haute couture artistic creations, from embroidery and textures to dresses and accessories.
That’s not all. The relation between nutrition and nature is the subject of the six month global fair EXPO MILANO 2015: the exhibit is thus a further tribute to this gigantic event.
The Elegance of Food is open every day from 9.30 am to 7.30 pm until November 1st, 2015.
HotelRome.net will be glad to provide you with more info on Expo Milano 2015 and current events in Rome!

Travelling from Myanmar, to Afghanistan, Cambodia, Japan, Brazil, Ethiopia and – last but not least, of course – Italy he is the author of iconic images such the green eyed Afghan girl’s portrait which appeared on the cover of National Geographic in 1985.
Teatro 1 in Cinecittà has on exhibit more than one-hundred-fifty works: side by side to the most renowned ones, a great number of his latest pictures (not published anywhere else before) are on display, showing his intent to move “beyond the gaze, through doors and windows to describe space and light, to overcome pain and fear”, to use the words of the exhibit curator.

LUCIANO BENETTON’S IMAGO MUNDI

LUCIANO BENETTON’S IMAGO MUNDI

An off the tracks exhibition is hosted until 11 January 2015 in Rome. “Imago Mundi”, conceived and sponsored by Luciano Benetton, the world renowned dress designer.
The visitor is actually offered more than traditional art works on display, as “Imago Mundi” is a full developed concept, a vision. Being an art lover, Benetton commissioned and collected a great number of works of art during his travells around the world, all respondent to a couple of requirements: being 10×12 cm in size and being made with non-profit intents. The aim of such a collection is to create a visual map of humanity, based on the different artistic ways it can be expressed through. Besides, the project is thought to provide the emerging artists with a platform for visibility.
Rome’s hosts at present the works from Africa: 2000 young artists from 16 countries involved.
“Imago Mundi” is at Carlo Bilotti Museum, inside Villa Borghese (metro line A: Flaminio stop). No admission fee is requested.
