Nemi is a small volcanic lake in the surroundings of Rome, with a small village that climbs the slopes of Mount Artemisio which takes its name from the Temple of Diana, whose remains are right behind the village. It is not surprising that the ancient Romans wanted to build a temple in this site rich in centuries-old forests, lakes and delightful na...

The approach of the Quirinale, the seat of the President of the Italian Republic, to the many proposals of art, is becoming increasingly varied.
