Over the centuries Rome has always known how to innovate, changing itself without losing the identity that makes it – in fact – eternal. Now eternity must be carried into the future. And innovation passes through the ability of the city to propose new ways to live and inhabit it, to offer social, economic, working relationships, capable of transforming it into a real smart city.
There are about 100 urban regeneration projects that Roma Capitale puts in place to deliver a more sustainable and attractive, open and shared city to its inhabitants, city users and tourists. The projects – already partially presented on 7 and 8 September 2021 at MIPIM in Cannes, the reference fair in Europe for the Real Estate market – are now revealed to the public, grouped into 7 main “districts”, in the exhibition “Rome, Eternity in the Future”. The exhibition, with free admission, promoted by Roma Capitale with the organization of Zètema Progetto Cultura and the design of Studio Visuale, will be hosted in the ground rooms of Palazzo dei Conservatori at the Capitoline Museums from 10 September to 31 October 2021.
The almost completely digital exhibition itinerary aims to tell in a single immersive environment made up of renderings, videos and drawings, the approximately 100 transformations that are involving and will involve the entire city with the identification of new sustainable residential neighborhoods. , the enhancement of creative and productive districts, with their spaces for cultural and social aggregation, as well as centers for research and start-ups.
Through the instrument of the SUMP – Urban Sustainable Mobility Plan, the city of the future takes shape by redefining the changing contours of its neighborhoods with the aim of satisfying the heterogeneous demand for mobility in urban and peripheral areas, while safeguarding the infinite wealth that characterize the individual territories: from the natural wonders of the coast of Ostia to the cosmopolitan atmosphere of the Esquiline, from the artistic and cultural heritage of the historic center to the twentieth-century utopias of Eur, up to the industrial archeology of the Ostiense quadrant. The access gates to the city, that is the railway stations and the contiguous areas, become real attractive hubs for research excellence and industrial growth.
Upon entering the exhibition, the visitor will find an introductory video to welcome him. Above, a depiction of the Capitoline Wolf decorating the ceiling dominates an installation that refers, in a small way, to the shape of the Circus Maximus in which stands a digital scenography with the many future projects, arranged on steps and usable on video, divided into 7 thematic areas corresponding to 7 districts of the city.
It starts from The city and its sea (Sea District), which leads from Ostia to the monumental architectural reality of Eur, along the route of via Cristoforo Colombo. We then cross the section Our South (South Modern District), concentrated on the Ostiense district and its industrial archeology born between the 19th and 20th centuries. We proceed with SMILE – The railway that unites the city (Railway Circle Line), which explores the projects aimed at highlighting the centrality and attractiveness of the railway junctions. Then with the decisive district of Il Polo Est (The East Pole), the fulcrum of a new urban polarity to be reached through the organic and functional reorganization of the Tiburtina / Pietralata quadrant. With So many cities in one (Geo Areas), however, the thousand faces of the capital are told through its communities, cultural and social gathering spaces, regeneration programs throughout the city. The Olympic city (Olympic Vision District), on the other hand, tells the idea of developing the Flaminio district, one of the most dynamic in the city thanks to the cultural ferment of its architectural and artistic spaces. In closing, the section Al Centro del futuro (Eternal District), with projects that, respecting tradition, project the historic center of Rome towards a new idea of the urban core.
All the projects exhibited in the exhibition are accompanied by their own QR code which will allow the in-depth analysis of the contents on the relevant online cards, which can be consulted at the moment or, more calmly, at the end of your visit. On the web pages you will find videos, further images, more detailed texts and the complete list of credits for each project. Also planned will be the distribution of a sort of free catalog to take anywhere to continue the experience of the visit and acquire an increasingly active role in building the future of Rome.
