Open House Roma 2019
The eighth edition of Open House Rome, the annual event that in just one weekend allows the free opening of hundreds of buildings of the Capital remarkable for their architectural characteristics, is underway.
Open House Rome was born from the idea of a group of architects and communicators oriented towards socio-cultural innovation. It is an annual event that celebrates design and architecture in the capital in just one weekend. On 11 and 12 May 2019 about 200 sites of any age and usually inaccessible, are open to the public through free guided tours.
Rooms is the Open House Rome project that tells what you can't see in the city: the stories, ideas and people that make some places special.
The theme of # ohr19, Utilitas, is also the first theme of Rooms: with Firmitas (solidity) and Venustas (beauty) Uttilitas is for the classical culture a quality that every architecture must possess. Investigating the relationship between architectures and their "utility" also means questioning how much space is able to transform over time to respond to ever-changing needs.
With Rooms it will be possible to make a journey to discover all this in the Eternal City.
