rinascimento segreto antonio-da-crevalcore-sacra-famiglia

RINASCIMENTO SEGRETO

Vittorio Sgarbi, the great animator of the cultural activities of the Marche Region, oversaw the exhibition Rinascimento Segreto that is held in three different locations:

URBINO – Palazzo Ducale, Sala del Castellare

FANO – Archaeological Museum and Pinacoteca of the Malatestian Palace, Sala Morganti

PESARO – Palazzo Mosca, Civic Museums

Thus Vittorio Sgarbi describes the exhibition: “The Secret Renaissance is difficult to show. There is a complex search for both the works and the authors that makes this show of sophisticated level. Along with Raffaello and Perugino, you will meet many anonymous artists, achievements of recent critical research or artists who are known but still under study. This secret Renaissance, in its entirety, becomes for the visitor a revealed Renaissance. ”

More than eighty works are exposed in the three locations of Urbino, Fano and Pesaro, including paintings and sculptures, drawings and artwork from the beginning of the fifteenth century to the mid-sixteenth century.
These works have been sought after by bank foundations, institutions and private collectors to enhance an almost unknown artistic heritage not exposed in the museums, and at the same time to create a link with the spells of Renaissance works in the territory of the Marche Region.
In addition to local school masters such as Giacomo of Nicola da Recanati and Giovanni Antonio da Pesaro, have been selected little-known masterpieces of representative artists of the principal pictorial schools of the peninsula.

From April 13th to September 3rd, 2017

Healthy vegetable drink

BUFFET LUNCH FOR MEETING

At the end of the morning, at lunch time, participants relax and start to talk to each other, to share the topics that have be discussed during the meetings, but also to know each other and create important links, often destined to last in time.

Lunch is thus a very important moment of the meeting, as well as important is the food we eat.

Our Chef Danilo Mariotti prepares personalized proposals for buffet lunches that use vegetables from our organic vegetable gardens, so always seasonal and fresh, legumes, that have low sugar and high proteins, whole grains that, thanks to the high fiber content, give energy but are not sleepy, the fish rich in Omega 3, especially the so-called Blue Fish of the Adriatic Sea.

Here are some dishes from our buffet menu for the meetings:

  • Active drinks, that are blended fruit and vegetables, such as celery, apple and ginger; strawberry and tomato; orange, carrot and almond milk …
  • Vegetable Soups such as beans, peas and mint; carrots and turmeric; leeks and potatoes, fennel and lemon; chickpea and rosemary; gazpacho and nigella …
  • Salads of legumes, such as barley and asparagus; spelt and sprouts; chickpeas and cumin; mixed vegetables and legumes …
  • Grilled specialities
  • Mixed salads with dried fruits
  • Fresh cheeses, such as fresh goat cottage cheese with home olive oil, small vegetables with vinaigrette
  • Bruschettas with confit tomatoes and fresh basil

  • Compositions of fresh fruits
  • Fruit sorbets
coffee break per i meeting

MEETING COFFEE BREAK AT VILLA GIULIA

People engage with a much more enthusiasm during the coffee breaks than in the working stages, because it’s a moment of great relaxation and informal socializing and the environment of the bar and the lounge of Villa Giulia, where we serve our coffee breaks, is warm and comfortable, providing a serene and relaxed atmosphere.

It is known that during conferences or meetings the participants’ attention tends to decline sharply after the second and the third hour of the beginning of the event.

For this reason it is essential to provide a mid-morning (or mid-afternoon) break, to allow participants to detach and to regain energy, to promote socialization among different participants in the same group and to aid the integration and interchange of ideas.

This little break, from 10 to 20 minutes, help to assimilate the experience and actually help to resume with enthusiasm the carrying out of what was taking place.

The coffee break is not to be considered a waste of time, as it is rather an added value for the performance of the participants of the meeting.

It ‘s inevitable and instinctive for participants to rush on coffee, but be careful, because caffeine increases blood flow to the brain making us more receptive, but it provides no nourishment and therefore to take much coffee when you are tired equates to even more stress your body.

The Coffee break at Villa Giulia is enriched by fresh and hot drinks such as fruit juices with no added sugar, tea and herbal teas and offers small pastries and savory snacks, but also fresh fruit and fruit salads because it is very important to give priority to simple sugar foods, and the fruit is perfect for this purpose: it not tire the digestion, restores the reserves of sugar of the body and provides vitamins and antioxidants.
