The Rocco Forte Collection’s Hotel de Russie Celebrates Caravaggio in 2010

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Rome, Italy – Hotel de Russie, the Rocco Forte Collection’s stylish hotel in the heart of Rome, is offering guests the opportunity to visit the cultural event of 2010 in Italy. The Scuderie del Quirinale Museum is marking the 400th anniversary of the death of Caravaggio with an exhibition of the great master’s most important and representative work. The exhibition will run from February 18 to June 13, 2010.

Drawn from museums and galleries all over the world, the paintings include the Bacchus from the Uffizi, David with Goliath’s Head from the Galleria Borghese, the Musicians from the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and The Supper at Emmaus from the National Gallery in London. The paintings will be accompanied by in-depth commentaries that place them in historical context, and chronicle Caravaggio’s complex artistic development and revolutionary approach to naturalism.

The 18th-century Scuderie del Quirinale—the former papal stables directly opposite the main entrance of the Palazzo del Quirinale—was remodeled in the late 1990s by architect Gae Aulenti and reopened 10 years ago as a venue for exciting, temporary exhibitions. It sits on the highest of Rome’s seven hills and has stunning views over the city.

In celebration of the Caravaggio exhibition, Hotel de Russie is introducing a special Caravaggio package, which includes tickets to the exhibition, a copy of the official exhibition catalog, a two-night stay in a double classic room (with upgrade subject to availability) and daily buffet breakfast.

The Caravaggio package starts from €1,221 ($1,775) including VAT and is based on two people sharing a double classic room for a minimum two-night stay. The package is valid from February 18 to June 13, 2010.
