Palazzo Rhinoceros: Fondazione Alda Fendi – Esperimenti in Rome

Palazzo Rhinoceros sits between the Arch of Janus and the Mouth of Truth.

Fondazione Alda Fendi – Esperimenti is a non-profit arts foundation created by Alda Fendi, of the famous Roman fashion dynasty, under the creative direction of Raffaele Curi.

The foundation's Rome base is at Palazzo Rhinoceros, located beside the Arch of Janus near the Circus Maximus, where it launched in October 2018.

The six-storey structure is an amalgamation of existing buildings, parts of which date to the 17th-century, transformed into 24 exclusive apartments along with exhibition and performance spaces by French architect Jean Nouvel, who retained ancient elements in his cutting-edge design.

Spanish entrepreneur Kike Sarasola oversees the management of the apartments, known as the Rooms of Rome, while the rooftop restaurant, Caviar Kaspia Roma, serves Russian-inspired specialities such as caviar as well as Italian cuisine.

Rhinoceros, the foundation's art gallery, is open to the public every day from 10.00 to 19.00. The rooftop terrace is also open daily, from 08.00 until midnight, for breakfast, lunch, coffee and cocktails.

Established in 2001, the foundation has staged free exhibitions and performances, showcasing international talents from the worlds of music, dance, film, theatre, opera and the visual arts.
