Live the Dolce Vita atmosphere with Roma Luxury. Are you ready?
Not everyone knows that the beautiful Hollywood star, Audrey Hepburn, has lived in Rome for 20 years with her husband, the psychiatrist Andrea Dotti.
In those years she lived in the beautiful Eternal City and she was able to capture the true essence of Rome and its Dolce Vita essence living fully the wonders that the city offered her.
Retrace all her favorite places experiencing a real journey in the era of La Dolce Vita.
Audrey has always loved Rome as a child with her mother since she was going for the summer holidays. But the true love has blossomed during the filming of the movie “Roman holiday” where she spent a second honeymoon. What a dream!
Audrey Hepburn, with her first husband Mel Ferrer loved walking in the gardens of Cinecittà and breathed the glamour of that cinema epoch. Everybody remembers Audrey Hepburn with her ballerina flats, but in addition to the dozens of pairs stored in her closet, there were also countless loafers of the most important Italian designers like Gucci and Ferragamo. She was always impeccable in her unique chic style.
Another memorable moment in her first stay in Rome was the premiere of her film “The Nun’s Story” at the movie theater Fiammetta in via Carducci. She looked wonderful with her Mikado silk dress accompanied by a small manteau. Absolutely a trend setter sophisticated look.
Audrey was not a lover of worldliness, she liked spending her time in company of her family and friends. She loved walking with her mother around the Spanish Steps, or having dinner sitting in the famous Trastevere’s restaurant, Corsetti, with her friend the actress Annette Storyberg.
Rome and Audrey do not get tired of each another. She returned in the sixties again in the Eternal City, and she liked sojourning in her favorite hotel, the Hassler, in Trinita dei Monti area (near the Spanish Steps).
Here comes the 70s with a new love Andrea Dotti and a second child. She decided to settle in Rome and leave for a while ‘the scenes.
She spent her life in peace in her house in Via dei Consoli, and then in the elegant neighborhood Parioli living the wonderful Italian lifestyle. Audrey loved to be at home, to take long walks through the streets of Rome digging small home accessories. One of the inevitable items of clothing in the actress’s wardrobe were foulards, at the beginning for contractual obligations (the Actors studio prevented the star of ruining her hair with too much sun exposure), then for reasons of privacy.
Among her favorite foulards there were Hermes paintings. Audrey was a diva and everyone in Rome knew her. In any case she felt at home enjoying the respect and confidencentialness of the Roman people who also protected her from the indiscreet eyes of the paparazzi. In fact, she could walk around, go shopping and accompany their children to school in peace and harmony.
Events never lacked as well as High society Dolce Vita evenings. Audrey Hepburn, as a true Roman, loved Valentino’s maison and her favourite one was a Valentino’s pale pink dress with fringes, an elegant and sophisticated mix between hippies and boudoir style.
In the 70’s the casual and hippie look was on her “daily agenda”, so then in her closet appeared oversized cardigans, flannel trousers, and bright geometric patterns and silk blouses.
Audrey spent intense years in the Eternal City that welcomed her like a daughter and still today remembers her with discretion and elegance.
Come to Rome and immerse yourself in the Dolce Vita atmosphere,like Audrey Hepburn and many Hollywood divas did and still do, that you can breathe in every hidden corner of this beautiful town and live unique moments full of unforgettable sensations that only Rome can give you.
