Christmas holidays, in a unique city like Rome, have always been imbued with a fairy-tale atmosphere, thanks to the windows' sparkling decorations and the illuminations spreading their play of light on some of the world's most famous streets and squares.
Among the wide avenues and monumental, rationalist-style architecture of the EUR district, and just a few steps from Fuksas’ visionary Nuvola, a new hub dedicated to art and culture opens in Rome. It is La Vaccheria, a historic “casale”, a farmhouse, ceded to Roma Capitale following the agreements of the EUR-Castellaccio Urban Program and managed by the city’s IX Municipality.
The extraordinary sculptural groups that Cardinal Scipione Borghese commissioned from the young Bernini, Caravaggio’s Madonna and Child with St. Anne, Raphael’s Deposition, Titian’s enigmatic Sacred and Profane Love, or the paintings by Correggio, Antonello da Messina, Giovanni Bellini. These are just a few of the masterpieces in the collection housed, among ancient marbles, inlays, mosaics and stuccoes, in the large frescoed rooms of the elegant residence nestled in the Villa Borghese park.
