Jansen) will show their works in the Salone di Donatello of the Basilica di San Lorenzofrom 19th April to 8th May 2018.

For more detailed information on the event, it’s location and an introduction to the different artists, we invite you to read this article.

Individual arrivals NRBC members at the Basilica of San Lorenzo (Piazza San Lorenzo, Florence), go to the Salone Donatello behind the courtyard after the ticket office (no entrance fee to visit the art exposition) to start strolling and discovering at leisure.

16.30 p.m. (punctually please because the exhibit closes at 17:30) Dr Abba will give our group an enriching and entertaining explanation about the artists and their works.

After the tour, we walk together to the 4 * Palazzo Gaddi hotel (Via del Giglio, 9) which is perfectly located between the art exposition and the railway station Santa Maria Novella for a nice Italian aperitivo. Hopefully, (thumbs for good weather!) on the roof terrace for the spectacular view.

FacebooktwitterlinkedinmailFacebooktwitterlinkedinmail


Last Friday, 9 June, Association Salviamo La Barcaccia, of which NRBC members Angela Mannaerts and Claudia de Regt are board members, consigned the beloved Bee fountain (Fontana delle Api), designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini and located at the corner of Piazza Barberini and Via Veneto, to the City of Rome, after a restoration of approximately two months.

This gesture would not have been possible without the help of the Dutch company Koninklijke Woudenberg and its subsidiary Meesters in, that sponsored the restoration together with Salviamo La Barcaccia and worked together with the local company CBC to produce this fantastic result. All this under the technical guidance and coordination of another NRBC member, Ing. Leonardo Delle Chiaie, who acted as Clerk of Works (Direttore dei Lavori). The legal work was performed by Angela Mannaerts and some of her colleagues, including NRBC members Romina Protto and Ilaria Giuliani.

The speakers at the inauguration ceremony where the Vice Mayor and Councilor for Cultural Affairs, Luca Bergamo; Councilor of Cultural Affairs for the historic center, Cinzia Guido; Superintendent of Rome’s monuments, Claudio Parisi Presicce; the Dutch Ambassador, Joep Wijnands; Louis Camps, Managing Director of Koninklijke Woudenberg; and Angela Mannaerts, President of Salviamo la Barcaccia.

At the end of the ceremony, Koninklijke Woudenberg invited the numerous spectators, in collaboration with Eataly, to a toast, combined with wonderful slow food hamburgers, at the l’Hamburgheria of Eataly, located next to the fountain.

News from Tessa Vrijmoed of Beyond the Colosseum (in Dutch language)

Het Colosseum voorbij: lezingen voor scholieren op locatie in Rome

Als classica verhuisde Tessa Vrijmoed in 2008 naar Rome. Destijds was ze pas afgestudeerd en trok haar het ‘nieuwe en spannende’ van het buitenland aan. Ook uw leerlingen staan op het punt een belangrijke keuze te maken: wat gaan zij doen na hun diploma?

In een interactieve lezing vertelt Tessa hoe het is om als twintigjarige je vaderland achter je te laten en zonder enig contact een nieuw leven op te bouwen. Het actuele leven in Rome fascineert haar nog iedere dag: ze beschrijft het in haar columns op www.beyondthecolosseum.com en meerdere keren per week op haar nieuwsplatform Beyond the Colosseum.
Wat doet een Romein als hij twee mensen op straat ziet zoenen? Waar komt het nonchalante gedrag van werknemers in de publieke sector vandaan? Is Marcello Mastroianni’s filosofische opmerking voor de Trevifontein in La Dolce Vita nog altijd actueel? Waar moet je op je volgende bezoek naar Rome absoluut naartoe?

Dat zijn zomaar wat vragen die aan bod zouden kunnen komen tijdens haar presentatie. De leerlingen zullen niet alleen maar hoeven luisteren. Ze worden aan het denken gezet door typisch Romeinse situaties en ze leren wat romanesco, het Romeinse dialect waarin het Latijn soms nog duidelijker zichtbaar is dan in het Italiaans.

Hebt u interesse in een dergelijk programma als u straks met uw leerlingen in Rome bent? Neem dan contact met Tessa Vrijmoed op voor meer informatie omtrent tarieven en reservering: info@beyondthecolosseum
