"The exhibition shows a selection of paintings by some of the best landscape painters who worked in Rome between the 17th and 18th century, a period when landscape painting moves between The Ideal and The real".
"Landscape of Latium becomes the visualisation of a dream, it changes into myth as fables and ancient stories it performs, rising to a universal value. Tivoli is expression and synthesis of these ideas: the ancestral memory of ancient myths, the great vestiges of classical and Renaissance world, the panic sense of nature live together in an indissoluble union. The emotion caused by the landscape of Tivoli is expressed among the ideal, the real, the picturesque and the sublime in the views by Dughet, van Wittel, locatelli, Van Bloem, van Lint".

The return of X factor

The internationally known TV programme that searches for the next big pop music artist is back for it's third edition on Italian TV. Originally created by British Simon Cowell, X-Factor is now a cult programme throughout the world. In Italy it is broadcast on Rai Due.

The first appointment with this popular programme was last night. Hostedby Francesco Fracchinetti, this years panel of judges/tutors is made up of Morgan, Mara Maionchi and new member Claudia Mori.

Over the 13 evening shows and daily afternoon airing, the 12 musical talents will battle it out to win a music contact and prize money.

The singers are divided into 3 groups; 16-24, 25+ and groups. My personal favorites after watching last nights show are Marco, Ornella and Luana Biz.
