A Roman Summer…in the Shade of the Coliseum!

Once again, the beautiful Italian capital will host until 5th September one of the most famous events in Rome summer: the time-honored “All’ombra del Colosseo” (“In the Shadow of the Coliseum”) which at its 20th edition, takes place in the Parco del Celio.

For the summer 2009, such an expected event, awarded by the President of Italian Republic and carefully organized by the cultural association Castellum, will bring many changes. The event’s aim is in fact to “refresh” (the keyword has become the symbol of the promotional campaign) and to renovate the activities and the performances offered to the Roman public.

This edition presents an interesting innovation: the opening of the famous panoramic swimming pool, which every summer is offered to the Roman citizens by All’Ombra del Colosseo in cooperation with Larus Nuoto, will be at 9 AM. In addition, this year in such an area dedicated to relax, citizens will have the chance to enjoy a wonderful Jacuzzi whirlpool bath!

Another innovation introduced by All’Ombra del Colosseo is represented by the several food courts place in the event area, just perfect to satisfy the culinary tastes of a wide public. For the Roman Summer 2009, visitors will have the chance to taste many delicacies made by two great international cooks and during the day you will have the opportunity to taste breakfasts, brunches, dinners and most of all delicious aperitifs near the pool!

Those who love to play poker can’t miss the seasonal event Texas Hold’em Roma, an event entirely dedicated to poker which for the third time is organized by All’Ombra del Colosseo. After the success of last year, the edition 2009 will present great innovations: players in fact will have at their disposal a 700 sq.m. large area, 5 more gaming tables (in comparison to last editions) for the tournaments, and visitors for the first time will find a special area reserved to on-line poker, where it will be possible to register at the tournament until while seats last.

Every evening from 10 PM on, many funny stand-up comedies and variety shows will wait for you all! In the summer arena theatre of All’Ombra del Colosseo, there will be several Roman (and not Roman) comedians who will entertain you with their jokes, such as Maurizio Battista, Geppi Cucciari, Alessandro di Carlo, Enzo Salvi and many more.

In addition, such an event has become so famous and successful through the years also thanks to those Italian great singers who every summer hold a concert here: this year the artists performing here will be: Cesare Cremonini (on 17th July), Raf (on 24th July) and Tiromancino (on 28th July).

But the typical Roman night suggested by “All’Ombra del Colosseo” doesn’t stop here. From 12 PM in fact, young boys and girls can’t miss the chance to enjoy an original evening with the rhythm of the disco Avenue, one of the most famous and exclusive music clubs in the capital.

So…don’t miss the chance to spend the summer 2009 in an original way!
