Back to the future: this month, MutikaEMC is transformed into a time machine and glad to take you on a mythological and ancestral journey by discovering one of the most legendary region of Italy: Lazio.
Its name speaks for itself: it is derived from the Latin word Latus, which means extensive and immense. From its vast history to its infinite landscape, Lazio is a national treasure and fiercely wears the crown of the great Roman Empire by holding in its hands the Etruscan heritage of the territory of Tuscia. Its most celebrated city, Rome, is the voluptuous and passionate capital of Italy, a must see gem that captures the essence of the Italian lifestyle. Eat, pray, love: let us guide you to an unforgettable experience of eternity.
Timeless: visiting Lazio is an experience that you will carry within you forever. Among ancient treasures, archaeological sites, imperial villas, this unique land still resounds with the deeds of the Roman Empire. Here sacred and profane come together to create a miracle of Great Beauty. Like the River Tiber, its fascinating history runs through its millenary veins, reaching the heart of its most famous city, Rome.
Mesmerizing, the capital of Italy is the portrait of the Italian Dolce Vita. If you love the idea of stopping time and being enchanted, Lazio is your next experience to live.
What a delicious and tasty day! We at Mutika are glad to invite you to celebrate with us the #CarbonaraDay discovering what made this Italian dish, born in Rome, famous all over the world.

A forkful is enough for you to understand that Carbonara is a real treasure of the Italian Cuisine. Spaghetti alla Carbonara, or simply Carbonara, makes its entrance into the homes of Italians after the liberation of Rome in 1944.
Although Carbonara has a very rich savor, in the post-war period of Rome it was considered a poor dish, made with a few genuine ingredients such as pasta, eggs, cheese, but the special touch is given by bacon, which was introduced in Roman markets thanks to American troops.
It is said that the famous dish took its name from the woodcutters of the Apennines who collected wood to make charcoal or “carbone” in Italian.
Take a seat in the front row to watch a show that takes your breath away. Rome, the capital of the Lazio region, has always been one of the favorite sets of famous Italian and international directors to create unforgettable movies. The heart of its most ambitious productions is Cinecittà, a hotbed of daydreams with which, we at Mutika, have a strong bond.
A city that will always continue to be chosen as the set for major productions, such as Mission Impossible 7 with Tom Cruise and the third season of the Amazon TV series Jack Ryan, both due out this year.
Buona visione! 🎬 🎥
From Federico Fellini to Sergio Leone, from Luchino Visconti to Woody Allen, Rome is a silver screen on which dreams and desires are projected. If in Italy and in the all world the love for the Eternal City is so great, we owe it to the cinema which has always known how to pay homage to its infinite beauty.
The famous scene in Federico Fellini‘s La Dolce Vita paid homage to the stunning Anita Ekberg and the unforgettable Marcello Mastroianni. But above all, the movie immortalized the Fontana di Trevi in all its majesty. Built on the facade of Palazzo Poli, this Baroque masterpiece is a true wonder and Fellini, with his film, has declared his eternal love to Rome.
Who has never dreamed of wandering the streets of Rome on a Vespa just like Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck? In the immortal movie Roman the two stars take us with the to discover Rome: from Piazza di Spagna, at the top of the staircase of Trinita de Monti to the divine Pantheon, without forgetting to never tell lies when you put your hand in the scary Bocca della Verità.
Italian cinema has often stand out by its creativity. The Great Beauty (La Grande Bellezza) by director Paolo Sorrentino, winner of the Oscar for best foreign film in 2014, is a tour de force in the most sumptuous Rome. A postcard that shows incredible attractions such as the splendid Fontana d’Acqua Paola, on the Colle del Gianicolo, the imposing complex of the Bagni di Caracalla and the marvelous Parco degli Acquedotti.
f you are thirsty for art and culture, Lazio is an amphora from which knowledge, creativity and beauty overflow. Homeland of the Latin language, cradle of sculptors, poets, writers and orators – above all, Cicero and Virgilio – is a fundamental stop for all those who want to discover the ancient roots of Italy and immerse themselves in a timeless story. Mutika EMC invites you to be inspired by its incredible wonders.
Do you know what makes Lazio a breathtaking show? Its ability to be itinerant despite its beauties having been rooted in its land for centuries. At every step, you will be able to hear the echo of antiquity and tradition. At every glance, you will come across ruins, aqueducts, temples, patrician villas. Each time it will be like sitting on the stairways of time and listening to the glorious voice of the past.
Rome is a beating heart of art and if you want to listen to its beats, just stand in front of the magnificent statue of Apollo and Daphne by Bernini exhibited at the Borghese Gallery; be fascinated by the impressive frescoes by Raffaello in Villa Farnesina or take home the ecstatic vision of The Gallery of Mirrors at the Palazzo Doria Pamphilj. Just magical!
You can find plenty of astonishing museums in Lazio, but one of the most fascinating destinations to breathe the art of yesterday and today is The Musei Capitolini. This group of art and archeological museums in Piazza del Campidoglio is considered the oldest public collection of art in the world, dating back to 1471 when Pope Sixtus IV donated a group of ancient sculptures to Rome.
Enter the rooms of history and be pervaded by the artistic richness of the villas of Lazio. You can admire the magnificence of the Roman Empire thanks to the oldest villas such as Nero’s Domus Aurea or be amazed by more modern ones such as the 17th-century Villa Doria Pamphilj in Rome and the splendid Villa Borghese.
Welcome back to Mutika’s journey to discover Lazio, the Italian region of the eternal and the divine.
If Rome is the city that par excellence tells its ancient history, the Vatican City, located in the center of the capital itself, is the word of God that becomes belief, but also art, architecture, beauty.
Visiting the Vatican, center of authority over the Roman Catholic Church, is an experience rich in values and precious in emotions.
Famous for being the official residence of the Pope, this city-state is immersed in an atmosphere of profound sacredness and magnificence that will touch the strings of your soul.
The Mutika Team will always be glad to support and guide you through the most hidden and inaccessible corners of this pearl of our country and give you the key to open the door of this Italian wonder.
It’s curious how the Vatican, seat of the Roman Catholic Church and of the Pope, is, at the same time, one of the biggest sacred places and one of the smallest states on earth. With only 0.44 square kilometers, the Vatican City, an enclave declared independent in 1929 with the Lateran Pacts, has been defined as a UNESCO heritage site for its artistic and historical importance.
Imposing and breathtaking, St. Peter’s Basilica is the most celebrated work of Renaissance architecture as well as the largest church in the world. Begun in 1506 and completed in 1626, the Basilica boasts works by the most famous Italian artists, such as Michelangelo and Canova, from Bramante to Giotto, up to Bernini to whom we owe the wonderful St. Peter’s square.
Just look up to admire the most extraordinary artistic celestial vault in the world: the Sistine Chapel, celebrated everywhere for the majestic frescoes by Michelangelo. From the famous Creation of Adam on the ceiling of the building to the acclaimed Last Judgment, the Sistine Chapel is a treasure of inestimable beauty.
Also the Vatican Museums host one of the largest art collections in the world. They are a passage in time that embraces works from different eras: from the Egyptian and Etruscan museums to the Vatican Pinacoteca with Middle Ages and the Renaissance artists. Do not miss, after having visited them, to immerse yourself in the adjacent Vatican Gardens.
