Hospitality and contemporary art in Rome

Combining art and hospitality, our goal is to offer our guests a distinctive and exceptional service:

Dedicating our space to Modern Art, we aim at facilitating a real interaction between the creativity of each artist and the rooms.

Under the artistic direction of Emmeotto, we have carefully selected Italian and international artists, whose works make the atmosphere of Relais Rione Ponte special and sophisticated.

Welcome to a unique, elegant and inviting boutique guest house.

Emmeotto is a contemporary art gallery housed in Palazzo Taverna, a 15th-century historic building in the deep roots of Rome, in the very heart of Rione Ponte, between Piazza Navona and Castel Sant?Angelo.
Throughout the centuries, Palazzo Taverna has been the backdrop for historic and cultural events, as well as an important meeting place for Italian and international artists and intellectuals. These days, contemporary art still animates the palace in the large rooms of the Emmeotto, into a unique and suggestive place, where the past and the present are in dialogue with each other.
As well as hosting a heterogeneous range of artistic activities, Emmeotto creates curatorial projects and organises art events to add value contemporary art, both inside and outside the gallery of Palazzo Taverna, in a context where works and space are in dialogue with each other, as in the case of ?Abstract Configurations?exhibition by Marco Angelini in the Relais Rione Ponte.

EVITA ANDUJAR - ANDREA PINCHI Dell'Amore, dei miti e dei miti personali

February 12th to June 7th, 2019

The myth of Cupid and Psyche is one of the most beautiful love stories ever. It was the Latin writer Apuleio to recount it in his "The Golden Ass" in the 2nd century AD. The metaphor of the eternal dichotomy between rationality and instinct, between heart and mind, has inspired the greatest writers, poets and artists. It is impossible not to think of one of the most sublime achievements in the history of art: the sculpture Amore e Psiche by Antonio Canova. And it is from here that the common thread of Evita Andújar and Andrea Pinchi's double solo show unfolds on 12 February at Relais Rione Ponte in collaboration with Emmeotto Arte. Intervening on the mention of Canovian memory, the two artists reinterpret, in four hands, Cupid and Psyche, each with their own stylistic code, a story and a myth, and make them personal.



Curated by Emmeotto Arte and Valentina Luzi

Muta Imago by Verdiana Patacchini

June 26 to November 14, 2017

Relais Rione Ponte, in collaboration with Emmeotto Gallery, is delight to announce the new exhibition project of the artist Verdiana Patacchini entitled Muta Imago.

The dialect of the visible is the cornerstone of an artwork, where matter, in its most varied declination, inevitably leads to the immaterial.

Metals, paper, ceramics are the medium of a reflection that places this ancient topos in the center of her language that reveals the fragile delimitation between visible and invisible.

In Atlas, Ego Imago Mundi is the ego of the artist, Luca Di Luzio, and his new human atlas, where a new relationship between the body and the world is established. Atlas puts the man in the position of redefining his place in space, not adapting to it, but shaping it in his own image. Land surface area with lakes and islands, mountains, rivers and boundaries are generated by the artis through the spontaneity of a resolute and docile gesture. The points of Atlas’ maps are the sign of the impression of the artist's body on paper. The Atlas project by Luca Di Luzio started simultaneously with "Magnetic Declination", curatorial proposal of White Noise Gallery for Set-Up Fair 2016.

"Drawings on paper, canvas, made with the simplicity of a pen, video animations and video installations that shows the constant presence of observers media; these are only some of the expressive ways which Keziat uses to unveil her ‘magical tale”. Amalia di Lanno
“The reinventing of reality by Keziat doesn’t claim likelihood, rather it offers fantastic shelters to ponder over daily life often too arid and schizophrenic.” Emanuela De Notariis
