The Anniversary of the Foundation of Rome

The Anniversary of the Foundation of Rome

The Anniversary of the Foundation of Rome (also called Romaia), is a secular holiday that was created to commemorate the founding of the city of Rome. According to the legend told by Varro, Romulus, direct descendant of Aeneas, founded the Eternal City on April 21, 753 BC. The celebration of the birth of Rome is still celebrated with costumed performances and cultural and recreational events, such as the election of the Goddess Roma, a girl who represents the figure so dear to the Romans, represented on the fountain in Piazza Campidoglio.


Russia, the newest market for the latest quest!

Halldis maintains its steady growth in its quest for being “everyone’s” solution to every accommodation need.

Whilst specialising in both corporate apartments and vacation rentals as well as offering serviced office spaces, all of which from very short to medium-long term, Halldis maintains its steady expansion both in portfolio and market reach.

As always, the quest for a new market begins with the desire to expand a dynamic international team in order to better “accommodate” and assist clients with a personal touch, in their own language, latest of which Russian. The result of wanting to understand client needs, to date, is a team of experts of 8 different nationalities able to advise and assist in finding apartments for rent in 9 cities in a total of 4 different countries, with more to come..


Frankfurt, Halldis adds yet another destination to its portfolio of apartments

After Paris and Brussels it’s Frankfurt’s turn. The newest addition in corporate apartments Halldis offers its managers and professionals is in the all important German city, a crossroads for European business. With a population of over 650 thousand, a metropolitan area of 5 million people, an excellent transport system (the airport alone is one of the most important in Europe) and top services, the banks of the river Main are scenarios to the headquarters of the ECB – European Central Bank, Bundesbank, the German Stock Exchange, but also companies such as Sanofi-Aventis and financial institutes such as Deutsche Bank, Dresdner Bank and Commerzbank.

Why choose Frankfurt, after Paris and Brussels? “The German market alone adds up to 15% of our company revenue, and Frankfurt is the heart of German international business – explains Pietro Martani, founder and president of Halldis – We decided to launch our activity on the banks of the Main to be present in one of the most vibrant places in Europe, and to develop Germany not only as a market but also as a destination for our clients. Frankfurt has now become key in supplying services, in addition to being traditionally a finance capital: all the top consulting companies in the world have offices here and some (among which our own clients) even have their European headquarters based here.”
