“Mint LIST” is a specialist agency for architecture and design that deals with public relations, communications and media management. It was established in Rome, in 2016, following the insight of Giulia Milza and Maria Azzurra Rossi. Both are architecture graduates, and have had some experience abroad - Giulia Milza in Barcelona and Maria Azzurra Rossi in Holland - along with collaborations with magazines and blogs they then concentrated on communication, taking their professional skills to the market. Their primary objective is to add value to architecture through new communication strategies and cultural promotions, by fostering networks with various organisations that operate in the sector. The agency mainly carries out press office activities, co-organises architectural and design events and collaborates with architectural studios in Italy and abroad. These include KAAN Architecten in Holland and Francisco Pardo in Mexico. Last year, it held a master class at the IED (European Institute of Design) in Rome, entitled, “Il Seme della Comunicazione” (The Seed of Communication). Among the most relevant sector events, the studio participate to La Biennale and the New Generations Festival. As well as performing the role of media partner for the latter international event, the agency invented “Press Box”. An installation of SET architects including a selection of international publications looked after by “Mint LIST”, displayed during the festival, from 24 to 26 September 2017. The project was presented as a modern newsstand built inside the evocative eighteenth-century cornices of the Acquario Romano – Casa dell’Architettura building. Creating a sort of temple to architectural culture, where the archetypal structure enters into dialogue with modern day materials.
