Short Bio Mariana Russo
I moved to Rome and worked as a manager for VIP events for different companies, until Michael Velasco and I decided to open our own agency five years ago. We love working with people and welcome you with open arms to Rome. Meticulous, dedicated, reliable and hardworking is where we stand for at Unico DMC.
Words that come to mind when you conjure up Rome, is ancient, renaissance, baroque, contemporary, political, papal, passionate, vivacious, frivolous monumental. And that's just for starters! Rome is overwhelmingly beautiful. A papal city where priests in red or white robes mingle amongst ordinary folks, where you throw coins in the Trevi fountain and make a wish, where Audrey Hepburn had a marvelous adventure with Gregory Peck in the immortal Roman Holiday and where the Colosseum, largest amphitheatre of the Roman Empire, dominates the center.
Italy's capital city is one of the most visited in the world. For many, Rome is first and foremost the political center of the nation, for others it is primarily home to the Pope.
All agree upon the importance of Rome in the development western civilization. Once the capital of the Roman Empire, the most powerful of the ancient western world, Rome has retained its impressive cultural, historical, and artistic importance and is still, centuries later, an important protagonist on the world scene.
Here, every piazza, street, and alleyway records the history of Rome's glorious past, which is, needless to say, only a part of the city's charm.
In Rome there is an amazing variety and choice and we very much hope we may assist you with your programs. You will not be disappointed, we do what we promise, in the time that we agreed to do so!
Program idea Rome
Located centrally in the Veneto Region, between Venice on one side and Verona on the other, Padova is the capital of the province of the same name.
Ancient University, it boasts several evidences of a glorious cultural and artistic past.
The University of Bologna had already grown to 10,000 students by the time Padua (Padova) founded its university in 1222. Padua was long the academic heartbeat of the powerful Venetian Republic and far before that, an ancient Roman stronghold and for this reason one of the most important medieval and Renaissance cities in Italy. Dante and Copernicus studied here, and Petrarch and Galileo taught here. Wandering in the narrow, cobbled, arcaded side streets in the timeless neighborhoods surrounding the "Bo" (named after a 15th-century inn that once stood on the present-day site of the university), one can be transported back to those earlier times.
Padua is a vital city, with a young university population that gets about by bicycle and keeps the city's piazzas and cafes alive. The historic hub of town still evokes the days when the city and its university flourished in the late Middle Ages and the Renaissance as a center of learning and art.
The most important sights are Giotto's magnificent frescoes in the Scrovegni Chapel (fully restored between 1999 and 2001) and the revered pilgrimage site of the eight-domed Basilica of Sant'Antonio di Padova, whose important equestrian statue by Donatello stands in the piazza before it.
