CINECITTA' SHOWS OFF

CINECITTA' SHOWS OFF

This exhibition will take you on a magical journey through cinema.

CINECITTA':

These historic film studios have played a giant part in the history of Italian and Hollywood cinema. Created back in the 30s by Mussolini under the timeless tagline, “Il cinema è l’arma più forte” (Cinema is the most powerful weapon), this is one part of Rome worth making a trip out to see.

There have been some veritable classics shot here over the years, including the epic Ben-Hur and Cleopatra modern films such as Mel Gibson’s The Passion of Christ , Martin Scorsese’s Gangs of New York and Rob Marshall musical Nine.  However, perhaps it is most renowned for being the home of Italy’s most internationally recognized director of all time: Federico Fellini. It doesn’t get more Roman or more acclaimed in cinema history than La Dolce Vita.

The grounds are actually the largest studio in the whole of Europe and you can enjoy private or group tours of the entire area. It’s located just 9km out of Rome making it an easy day trip for any cinema buff.

CINECITTA' SHOWS OFF:

You will be guided through monumental sets and a precious collection of set dressing items coming from the most significant films shot at Cinecittà.
You can get up close to costumes and accessories worn by international stars such as Sophia Loren and Alberto Sordi; be enchanted by the wonderful
sketches of the most renowned designers; and be taken directly into the heart of the Dream Factory.
The exhibition is divided into three sections and traces the history of Italian and International cinema, explaining the crafts necessary to make a movie.
It allows interactions with the different audiovisual languages in the last section called ‘Backstage’.
It’s an exhaustive homage to the most important costume and production designers, allowing visitors to perfectly understand how many professionals are required to make a movie successful. It is also possible to take a complete tour through the resident sets that are still used today for all kinds of audiovisual, domestic feature films and international productions. Expert guides will accompany visitors to the set of Broadway/New York, previously used by Martin Scorsese’s ‘Gangs of New York’ and recently revamped for Paul Haggi’s ‘Third Person’.
Guests can be taken through Florence in the 15th century and to the incredible ‘Ancient Rome’ location, which hosted the renowned period TV
series, with your guide providing insight into all the details of this mammoth production.
The opening of the prestigious Caffè Cinecittà will allow a relaxing break in the stylish café and a quick visit to the bookshop where you can pick up some unique souvenirs.

Apostolic Blessing "Urbi et Orbi":

"Brothers and sisters, good evening!

You know that it was the duty of the Conclave to give Rome a Bishop. It seems that my brother Cardinals have gone to the ends of the earth to get one... but here we are... I thank you for your welcome. The diocesan community of Rome now has its Bishop. Thank you! And first of all, I would like to offer a prayer for our Bishop Emeritus, Benedict XVI. Let us pray together for him, that the Lord may bless him and that Our Lady may keep him. 

And now, we take up this journey: Bishop and People. This journey of the Church of Rome which presides in charity over all the Churches. A journey of fraternity, of love, of trust among us. Let us always pray for one another. Let us pray for the whole world, that there may be a great spirit of fraternity. It is my hope for you that this journey of the Church, which we start today, and in which my Cardinal Vicar, here present, will assist me, will be fruitful for the evangelization of this most beautiful city.

And now I would like to give the blessing, but first - first I ask a favour of you: before the Bishop blesses his people, I ask you to pray to the Lord that he will bless me: the prayer of the people asking the blessing for their Bishop. Let us make, in silence, this prayer: your prayer over me.   

Now I will give the Blessing to you and to the whole world, to all men and women of good will.

Brothers and sisters, I leave you now. Thank you for your welcome. Pray for me and until we meet again. We will see each other soon. Tomorrow I wish to go and pray to Our Lady, that she may watch over all of Rome. Good night and sleep well!"

VATICAN MUSEUMS AND SISTINE CHAPEL

VATICAN MUSEUMS AND SISTINE CHAPEL

Just 3 minutes walking from our hotel ............

The magnificent and immense Vatican Museums are among the greatest and most important in the world. This explains the extremely long queues tailing back from the the entrance, especially in the high seasons such as at Christmas, Easter and during spring.

Rest assured however, your patience will be rewarded inside.

In order to avoid the queues and save time, it is therefore a good idea booking your admission ticket or guided tour online.

The Vatican Museums in fact encompass a number of different museums: the Pio-Clementino Museum, the Chiaramonti Museum, the Gregorian Etruscan Museum, the Gregorian Egyptian Museum, the Gregorian Profane Museum, the Pio-Christian Museum, the Ethnological Missionary Museum, the Collection of Modern Religious Art, the Upper Galleries Museum, the Vatican Library Museum, the Pinacoteca (Art Gallery) and of course the exquisite and unique Sistine Chapel.

An entire day will not be long enough to see everything, so you would do well to dress comfortably and have a clear idea of what you really want to visit before embarking of this “expedition”.

The Vatican Museums are also open on the last Sunday of every month when admission is free
