Social Events

11 November evening Frascati history & Welcome Party Scuderia Aldobrandini Frascati
12 November evening Social dinner Cantine Santa Benedetta
Frascati is a town in the province of Rome in the Latium region of central Italy. It is located 20 km south-east of Rome, on the Alban Hills close to the ancient city of Tusculum. Its origin dates back to the year 1191 after Tusculum was put to fire ad sward. The Tusculum survivors abandoned it and went to live below, at the hamlet then known as frascata the bowery.
Frascati is not only closely associated with science, being the location of several international scientific laboratories, the INFN, the ENEA (the Italian Alternative Energy Authority) and the ESA (the European Space agency), but it is also an important historical and artistic centre famous for its notable villas, which were built from the 16th century on by Popes, cardinals and Roman nobles as "status symbols" of Roman aristocracy. These country houses were designed for social activities rather than farming. Our "Welcome party" will take place in the Scuderia Aldobrandini, the ancient horse stable of the Villa Aldobrandini built in the 16th century for the Cardinal Pietro Aldobrandini. The Villa Aldobrandini dominates the face of Frascati. It is situated on a small hill overlooking Frascati and Rome. The Scuderia Aldobrandini, located just at the feet of the Villa in the very center of Frascati, was restructured in 2000 and now serves to the town of Frascati as cultural center and museum. It offers to the public a wide range of events such as art exhibitions and festivals of music, literature and poetry. Before our reception event hall of the Scuderia, we will hear an introduction to the history of Frascati followed by a guided tour through the Museum located in the 'Scuderia Aldobrandini'.
Frascati is the best known of the so-called "Castelli Romani". In fact, when people speak of the Castelli they are often thinking of Frascati, and this is even more true in regard of the wine, for its golden wine is the best known of the Castelli vintages. Innumerable are the cantine (wine-making companies or cellars) that make excellent and renowned wine that are exported all over the world. The wine known as Frascati" is a "proven origin wine" (vino a denominazione di origine controllata). The social dinner will be organized in one of the most famous winery of the Castelli Romani Cantine Santa Benedetta. The tastings will be prepared with the intention of offering an experience of the place of tradition, taste the products immersed in the setting that creates these products.
