From May 12th to 13th, Open House Rome will be back, an initiative that will allow you to discover some of the places in the city that are not normally accessible during the year. A whole weekend to go to the discovery of the best known but also the less known places of the capital.
Open House Roma is the result of the creativity 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. Around 200, sites of any age and usually inaccessible, are opened to the public through free guided tours.
An experience to live hidden places, unknown or to be rediscovered. Strong numbers from last year: 154 places with guided tours, 48 events, 27 tours, 105.00 sessions, 800,000 views and 56,000 users.
Schools, libraries, art galleries or restaurants, buildings. All unique places for multiple reasons: for architecture, for the story they tell, for the artist who designed them or for the decoration they retain inside them. Many are places in front of which we pass before every day, but without mind and, this event, is an opportunity to discover them in their many peculiarities and peculiarities.
There are many interesting places to see this weekend: the magnificent Hertziana library in Piazza di Spagna; the district of the Eur; the evocative atelier of Pietrantonio Arminio at Città del Sole, born from the redevelopment of a public transport depot.
