For the inhabitants of the Prati district, this building, as large as a block, in ocher and red colors, has represented the Vittoria ATAC depot for generations, from which old green buses entered and exited.
Today that 5000 square meters space has been recovered, without being distorted and has become one of the best recovered post-industrial spaces, not only in the capital city. The former warehouse is divided into 4 different independent spaces with distinctive aspects and different sizes able to adapt to different types of events. PratiBus District with its 7 meters high ceilings also offers 3 outdoor areas, a covered foyer, a large service area and all the rooms are suitable for vehicles.
Since its opening, art has been present in the spaces of this former warehouse with works of international renown, such as some pieces from the Animal House series by the sculptor Davide Rivalta. Since its inauguration at the beginning of 2019, the events hosted by the PratiBus District have been a great success, the area has in fact been chosen, among other things, as the headquarters of Alta Roma, the capital's fashion week, as well as the venue for the Incontri festival d'Autore, also for the first event of the "Let's Network" series of events dedicated to Small and Medium Enterprises in the food and wine sector.
Space for events, but also one of the locations of the "Quarter" project conceived and developed by the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary Art in collaboration with Ninetynine Urban Value. The project aims to extend the gallery beyond its walls, bringing art out of its usual environments.
