Graduated in Law, Giuseppe has been a journalist since 2007, first on TV (Sky) and now on writing for print (Il Foglio) and online media (HuffPost Italy and Marie Claire). He writes about books, art and entertainment. He lives in Rome and it is easy to meet him in the most glamorous dinners and parties, but if you are real night owls, every Friday night you can find him on Rai Uno, permanent guest of the program “MilleeunLibro - Scrittori in TV”: “Bring me to a nice party I will be grateful to you, but also to a film or literary festival, to an exhibition, let me meet interesting and gripping characters. Then do not worry, I will tell you stories in my own way, hoping to intrigue and excite you as happens to me every time. You just need to get comfortable and start reading.”

Clubbing

Imagine a place with an atmosphere that recalls the smoky alleys of an oriental metropolis where sudden bursts of neon light are mixed with the minimalist rigor of the essential.

At Emerald's in Rome for a trip around the world

Clubbing

“Once upon a time there was a fearless adventurer, a fascinating globetrotter with dark eyes and a musicalvoice. He traveled relentlessly to reach places and peoples of all kinds, pushing himself to the remotest partsof the globe: from the East Indies to Japan, from the heart of the Amazon forest to the Pacific islands. On his estate in Venezuela, the fairy-tale traveler loved to bring back every kind of merchandise: precious fabrics, foods, spices and carpets but also rare animals. Like Emerald. A magnificent peacock with thick plumage.”

We are at the “Valentyne”, a few steps from Piazza del Popolo, but it seems like we have just stumbled into post-war Paris or the America of Prohibition, because this is a timeless place, capable of creating a return of glamor and the atmosphere of the 1930s.

A glamorous evening with cocktails and good music

The beauty of Rome is that most activities and events happen outside, given that the climate is almost always favorable and pleasant even in winter. However, for some time now, “happenings” have been in vogue: super-exclusive evenings where good food and high quality music played by international DJs perfectly merge with each other.
