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.

Member Jochgem Gunneman is opening a Rome office of Gunneman GIS & Geomatics shortly!
Gunneman GIS & Geomatics focuses on the development of geo-applications (on-card-based applications) and serves its Dutch clients preferably from Rome. The company has won a tender together with another Dutch company (Nieuwland). Not only does this mean that a long-cherished dream is coming true, but also that employees from Rome will be hired.
Gunneman GIS & Geomatics is urgently looking for companies that offer payroll services. In any case, we intend to outsource our payroll administration. Do you know a company with which you had good experiences and which you would recommend? Or do you have golden tips about keeping working with Italian personnel? If so, then send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org .
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
