Neighbouring the Forum
Sure, there’s a Fendi-curated art gallery on the ground floor, but the serviced apartments at remodelled palazzo Rhinoceros Roma are like art installations themselves – each one original. Walls are a partially unwrapped storyboard of bare brickwork, left-in-place graffiti or half-stripped wallpaper; your bed may be on wheels; perhaps your ensuite is mid-suite, encased in sleek panels of stainless steel. These playful interiors are the work of starred architect Jean Nouvel who, in incorporating details from the palazzo’s past, shows a reverence for its legacy. And what a spot in which to revere history: at the heart of the Velabro neighbourhood, you’re surrounded by Roman relics, brushing shoulders with Palatine Hill, the Circus Maximus and the once-buried ruins of the Forum.
