Celebrate Halloween inside Rome’s prestigious Cappella Orsini (“LUCIFERO’S CHAPEL”)

Enjoy an EXQUISITELY scrumptious evening in the rousing atmosphere of an Italian Renaissance studio located in a magnificent old (deconsecrated) chapel in the heart of ancient Rome, surrounded by plush treasures from the past blended with modern comfort, in an exclusive, historical setting. Chronicled coincidences and mysterious heresay surrounding the chapel since Roman times continue to intrigue and spark speculation through the centuries about its deconsecration. Surely an appealing conversation for warming-up our frightful guests and setting the mood!

Built in medieval times on the ruins of the famous theatre of Pompeo where Julius Caesar was murdered (near Campo de’ Fiori and Piazza Navona), this baroque church, Cappella Orsini, is now host to Rome’s first school of fine arts, Accademia del Superfluo. Cappella Orsini is so named because it was once the private chapel of the noble Orsini family. Presently the ornately decorated chapel rooms are overseen by Maestro Roberto Lucifero, acclaimed Interior Decorator and designer, who founded the school and cultural centre in 1986.

Don’t miss this most convivial of evenings, tricks & treats. At your disposal: theatrical makeup artist will create a special effect for you (a little spider on your cheekbone?, drip of blood down your neck?), whiteglove service throughout the evening, handsomely catered buffet, flowing spirits (as well as wine bar/cocktails), ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW backdrop screening, and live music/entertainment await you…. all of which are supernaturally a pre-requisite for any proper ghostly gathering.
