Exclusive Picasso Exhibits at the Hotel de Russie in Rome


Calling all Picasso fans. Hotel de Russie, a Rocco Forte hotel in Rome, is celebrating the 100th anniversary of Pablo Picasso’s first visit to Rome in a special way. The luxury hotel, where Picasso stayed in February 1917, is unveiling two exhibitions of Picasso’s work from a private collection. The first (on view until November 19) showcases ceramics the artist made in the Provençal village of Vallauris after World War II, while the second (taking place from January 20-February 28, 2016) will highlight a collection of engravings called “La Célestine” which illustrate the 16th century satire by Fernando de Rojas.

In addition, the Hotel de Russie has created an exclusive offer so that guests can see the city through the eyes of Picasso, following in his footsteps to local cultural spots. Last but not least: The hotel’s Picasso Suite has recently been renovated by Olga Polizzi, Director of Design for Rocco Forte Hotels. Like an elegant Roman residence, the suite is inspired by Picasso's style and contains lithographs and Picasso folio books.
