2019 Guinness Six Nations opens its doors to Rome’s museums

2019 Guinness Six Nations opens its doors to Rome’s museums

Rome has always been a hive of parties, fun and most importantly a joyful meeting of cultures since Italy’s introduction to the Championship in February 2000.

This year, the culture of the capital is permeated throughout its every corner once again thanks to an offer from FIR and its partners that has committed to ensuring that fans get the chance to explore the city to its full.

Launched in 2016, the FIR project “IV Tempo Rugby e Cultura” offers fans a wide range of entertainment opportunities that come with their Six Nations tickets.

Also, for 2019 the renewed partnership between FIR and MIBACT will open the doors of some of the most important state and civic museums in Rome for free, on match weekends, to Six Nations ticket holders.

To celebrate the new partnership a representative of Azzurri convened by Conor O’Shea for the inaugural rounds of the Guinness Six Nations 2019 posed for a photo outside Stefano Compagnucci’s statue, thanks to the collaboration with the Capitoline Superintendency of Cultural Heritage.

Pier Luigi Bernabò, FIR Events Director, said: “After taking the national team to pose at the Colosseum in 2018, a picture that became a symbol of the Tournament in Rome, this year we wanted to enhance the IV Tempo project by telling a collection of images a small part of the fantastic opportunities for cultural enrichment that the Six Nations brings with it.

“The Capitoline Museums are, like our Azzurri, a national excellence. We can only hope that, as in previous years, this campaign will contribute to increasing the perceived value of the Six Nations and concretely supports our willingness to organize events that go well beyond the simple eighty minutes of sports performance, but which contribute to enriching culturally young people and families, in line with the institutional values ​​of our sport and of our Federation.”
