Open House is the Roman edition of the world's largest architectural festival: a concept born in 1992 in London, and is now widely circulated in more than 35 cities around the world, which each year offers free public hundreds of quality architectural sites. The Open House edition of Rome is a great project that from 2012 involves the whole city, with a growing share of participation. In 2016 70,000 guided tours were promoted in 160 sites.
And for the 2017 edition, scheduled for Saturday 7 and Sunday 8 May, there will be over 180 public places, including historical, monumental, museum and archaeological sites, significant sites of the immense architectural heritage of Rome. The aim is to foster the knowledge, promotion and development of the architecture and design sector, while promoting workshops, cultural paths, meetings with creative young people and experts. The event is realized thanks to the support of young volunteers Under 35, university students who - besides being the first users of the event, in line with the Lazio Creativo program - will at the same time be the guides that will animate Open House Rome.
"Architecture Tale Through Imagery" is in this sense a showcase that gives space and visibility to the free initiative of young people in the field of cultural and creative activities.
