Zuppa Romana

Generazione, A Call from Rome | nowhere, Rome IT | 2016

The Roman countryside has been for centuries a Locus Amenus, a sort of anthropized Arcadia, free from the urban tasks, but eventually became a place of retreat for emperors and popes.
A scenario both connected and disconnected with Rome, whose borders have been always considered ambiguous and undefined.
We have been invited to this design exercise to establish a confrontation over a common
typology, a classical topic, but not for this anachronistic: a topic that bring us back to the autonomy of the discipline, but without anesthetizing it, rather trying to recover its regardless strength.
