FOR 2 WEEKS IN JULY, THE FAMOUS VILLA MEDICI GARDENS SET FOR AN OPEN-AIR FILM FESTIVAL SPONSORED BY THE NEIGHBORING SOFITEL ROME VILLA BORGHESE.
Sofitel celebrates its French heritage by supporting cultural events worldwide and is proud to partner the Villa Medici, home to the French Academy and talented young French artists, architects, musicians, writers, film directors and poets.
This year’s festival honored the remarkable career of French actress Isabelle Huppert, who attended the opening night screening of The Pianist (2000) directed by Michael Haneke.
All year long, the Villa Medici offers a varied program of photography shows, concerts, conferences and cultural exchange. On summer evenings, privileged groups of guests from the Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese can take a private tour of the 16th century palace and gardens.

BE MAGNIFIQUE
SOFITEL'S GOT ATTITUDE!
PILOTS FOR SOFITEL’S BRAND NEW LEARNING PROGRAM ‘UNLOCKING THE COUSU MAIN EXPERIENCE’ WERE ROLLED OUT TO SELECT AUDIENCES FROM SYDNEY TO BANGKOK, MACAU TO DUBAI, LONDON TO PARIS, BRAZIL TO ARGENTINA...
Part of Sofitel’s Be Magnifique strategy, this program is designed to teach all Sofitel Ambassadors to understand and recreate the ‘Cousu Main’ guest experience every day, all the time. Sofitel Attitude is about to become a way of life: it means asking guests the right questions so we can create a tailored service that meets and even exceeds all their needs and desires.
Audiences around the world reacted enthusiastically to the pilots and gave interesting feedback that will be collated and integrated into the course. Official release and rollout is scheduled for the end of 2014 in all Academies worldwide.
