“dMake” is an architectural studio where innovative ideas and projects are developed. It was opened 18 months ago, at the address 174-176, via Giovanni Lanza, by four under 35s, originally from southern Italy. The Centre is open to the hybridisation with other disciplines, such as art and design, due to the willingness of Giuseppe D’Emilio, Gaetano De Francesco, Rosamaria Faralli and Denise Franzè. The aim of its founders is actually to explore the limits of architecture and to open up by bringing in outside influences, broadening possibilities for planning and realising. The team has three keywords: making, sharing, learning. The interdisciplinary studio in Rione Monti is in a disused factory that has been repurposed, and almost entirely rebuilt by the team. Here, they primarily do project work - both large and small-scale, from single items of furniture to interventions for the urban
landscape. But they also create culture and they share that too. One section of the space is devoted to event promotion as it is actually an art gallery. People can learn here in the laboratory dedicated to experiments and workshops on 3D-printing techniques.
They research areas of new technology. “dMake” is a space that provides a service to the city, made possible by the entrepreneurialism of four young creative talents, who firmly
believe in the ethical and civil role of architects. They believe in their responsibility toward the people who will live in the spaces that they create, but that will transform an area for everybody in there. The studio’s mission is to work alongside and for the community,
making a network of diverse professionalism. With stubbornness, tenacity, passion and rationality, Giuseppe, Gaetano, Rosamaria and Denise have breathed life into a space
where you can experience the cultural and creative buzz of Rome. A marvel for visitors.
