Apologize to the big questions, for our little answers


Rosa Matteucci


Tomás Saraceno Arachnomancy Cards

In 2019, when this was not our life, Tomás Saraceno's strange cards came to look for Rosa Matteucci: he called them tarots, but they are not, because behind a name of banal convenience, there is actually an oracle . Whoever finds himself here with her, did not come by chance, out of curiosity or boredom, he was summoned for a particular reason, which each of you will be able to discover, because sometimes in life, Time becomes Destiny. The oracle must be approached in silence and with respect, the cards will tell each of you, only what you need to know, but which in most cases you ignore, underestimate, or fear. The writer will be only a modest human link between the oracle and the querent.

A space for the imagination built through the symbolism of the Renaissance

Spazio Taverna offers artists of the latest generations active in Rome a cycle of Artist Masterclasses, which develops around a series of monthly guided tours to little-known places in the city of Rome.


Spazio Taverna has identified moments in the history of Rome  during which the relationship between art and power was expressed in a symbolic and inclusive way: the Roman Empire, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the Baroque and the Twenties.


Characters such as the emperors Augustus and Trajan, the popes Pasquale I, Julius II, Urban VIII and Innocenzo X, the minister Giuseppe Bottai have developed universal visions thanks to collaborations with artists such as Apollodorus of Damascus, Raffaello Sanzio, Michelangelo Buonarroti, Gianlorenzo Bernini, Francesco Borromini, Adalberto Libera and Marcello Piacentini.

Each visit includes a historical introduction followed by a debate with the artists related to the theme of the visit, which concerns the relationship with different types of space.

The club's purpose is to help emerging artists develop their awareness through direct confrontation with examples from the past.
