Readings, visions and projects for the Rome of the future developed by 25 Italian and foreign universities
This exhibition collates and presents the results of the international workshop promoted by the Department for Urban Transformation of the Municipality of Rome and MAXXI, recounting the entire process.
With a temporal horizon represented by the decade separating from the Jubilee of 2025 and on the basis of a programme developed by a specific Scientific Committee, the project takes into consideration a new map of the metropolitan city, identified by a square with sides of 50 km, corresponding to the vast perimeter of the social and economic life of contemporary Rome.
While taking its cue from the project “Roma Interrotta”, Roma 20-25 goes beyond the confines of the historic city centre and opens itself to a metropolitan territory, the vastness of which has never previously been defined, but the perimeter of which extends from Mount Soratte to Ardea.
A mosaic of interpretations and proposals on many themes, from architecture to the landscape, from infrastructure to housing.
This area has given birth to the grid of 25 squares with 10 km sides, within which the invited university teams have located a smaller square with 1 km sides containing a fully developed design proposal. The presentations of the various proposals in the exhibition have been designed by the universities concerned.
