6th-century BC home discovery changes ancient Rome map



Rome, September 9 - A home from the archaic period has been found on the Quirinal Hill in Palazzo Canevari, the former geological institute in the Italian capital. The sixth-century BC abode had a rectangular layout most likely divided into two rooms, on a tufa stone base and with an entrance possibly preceded by a portico opening onto one of the long sides, with wooden walls covered in clay under a tile roof.

The discovery was made this summer during preliminary archaeological excavations conducted by the superintendent's office on the historic building and is considered one of the most important of recent years, as it redesigns the map of Rome between the sixth and the fifth centuries BC. It is also remarkable for the good state of conservation of the structure and since it had previously been thought that the area in which it was found was used as a necropolis and not as a residential area.

Since 2003, Palazzo Canevari - which is now owned by the Italian savings and loans bank, which took charge of the excavations when it purchased the property - has been surveyed to see whether ancient relics were on the premises. Following a period of extensive excavations, in 2013 an enormous fifth-century temple was found. And now this latest find, dating back to the time of the Servian Walls, has been considered revolutionary.

"This building is basically absent in archaic Rome, and there are only traces in the Forum area. The home was probably used for about 50-60 years prior to when the temple was built that was discovered in 2013," Mirella Serlorenzi said during a press visit, who directed the excavations on behalf of the superintendent's office.

"The position of the house near the temple hints at it being a sacred area, and that whoever lived there was watching over what happened therein. But it is even more important that we can now retro-date the urbanization of the Quirinal zone. The Servian Walls encircled an area that was already inhabited and not a necropolis." "This means that Rome at the beginning of the sixth century was much larger than what we expected and not closed in around the Forum," she added, stressing that "the excavations will continue for months more. But everything depends on what we find."

Superintendent for the Colosseum, il Museo Nazionale Romano and the archaeological area of Rome, Francesco Prosperetti, said that he hoped "adequate valorization" of the find would ensue. The issue now is over how to let the public enjoy the find, located as it is in a privately held building that may soon lodge the offices of the Italian savings and loans bank. "We are weighing project proposals for making the building into a museum," he said, ensuring "use compatible with the purpose of the building and that the excavations will not be covered over."

The “Square Colosseum” opens to the public for the first time


While Expo Milano 2015 seems destined to live beyond the official closing date of October 31, another Expo, the one in Rome in 1942, was over before it began because of World War II. Today, however, it will, in part, be reborn, thanks to the project by Fendi fashion house for the Palace of Italian Civilization, the building in EUR that would have been the heart of that Universal Exposition. The Palace was never used.

A record restoration, that began in October 2013 with the collaboration of the Superintendence of Cultural Heritage, was finished a few weeks ago. “If we were to construct a building like this today, we would have to spend approximately half a billion euros,” explains Pietro Beccari, the CEO and President of Italian luxury fashion brand Fendi.

Trevi Fountain reopens after a €2.2 mln makeover


Rome’s Trevi fountain is flowing once again after a €2.2 million makeover. The taps were turned back on after a 16-month clean-up to cheers from delighted tourists. Crowds packed the square in the Eternal City’s historic center and couples hugged and kissed next to the ornate fountain where tradition has it they can ensure eternal love by drinking its waters.

The fountain, which was commissioned by Pope Clement XII, was immortalized in the scene from the Fellini film in which Anita Ekberg waded into its waters in a black evening dress.


Italian fashion house Fendi, were carried out the repairs to the monument. It is visited by millions of tourists every year, but in 2012 bits of its elaborate cornice began falling off following a particularly harsh winter. A survey of the monument found that more critical work was needed, prompting a cash-strapped city hall to appeal to large companies and donors for funding. Fendi answered the call.

The basin was drained but the most determined visitors had still been slinging coins over their shoulders – a tradition that is said to ensure a return to Rome – in the hope of getting them into a small substitute pool. The tradition of throwing coins into the fountain was made famous by Frank Sinatra's rendition of "Three Coins in the Fountain" in the 1954 romantic comedy film of the same name.

New Rome-EUR Convention Centre & Hotel
Design: Massimiliano Fuksas

The structure is built in a strategic area of the EUR district on a 55,000 sqm built surface. The design concept is briefly explained by three images: the “Theca”, the “Cloud” and the “blade” of the Hotel. The “Theca”, longitudinally oriented, is the container, with steel structure and glass double-façade, that encloses the Cloud. The “Cloud” is the heart of the project. Its constriction into the “box” of the Theca underlines the comparison between a free spatial articulation, without rules, and a geometrically defined shape.



Inside the Cloud there are an auditorium, snack points and support services to the auditorium. The Cloud is, without any doubt, the distinctive architectural element of the project: the structure in steel ribs, with its extraordinary visual effect, is be covered by a 15,000 sqm transparent curtain.The 439-room hotel, the “blade”, is thought as an independent and autonomous structure. At the underground level of the complex it’s planned a 600-place parking.



The New Congress Centre will be a work of extraordinary artistic value, characterized by innovative logistical solutions and by the choice of technologically advanced materials. The complex will be highly flexible, able to host congresses, exhibition events.



The design of the New Congress Centre is distinguished by its eco-friendly approach, that is a group of choices to reduce energy consumption.
There is a climate control system with variable flow air conditioning, that will allow an optimal use of energy, with respect to the effective crowding of the rooms; on the cover of the Theca there are photovoltaic elements that will allow a natural production of electricity and the protection of the building from the overheating, through the mitigation of the solar radiation, as well as allowing a significant energetic saving compared to those required to obtain the air-conditioning of the whole volume with traditional systems.

China's Rosewood to turn ex-Rome mint into extra-luxury hotel



The building that used to host the Italian State mint in Rome's Piazza Verdi will be turned into a luxury hotel by Rosewood Hotels and Resorts International Limited, which is controlled by New World China Land Ltd. The move was announced in statement by Italian State investment bank Cassa Depositi e Prestiti (CDP). The letter of intent between the CDP-controlled Residenziale Immobiliare 2004 S.p.A and Rosewood, among others, was signed last Friday, the statement said.

The project envisages building an extra-luxury hotel with around 200 rooms, a convention centre, restaurants, swimming pool, spa, as well as about 50 private residences managed by the hotel operator. The restructuring of the building is scheduled to start when the definitive binding contracts are signed in a few months' time, the statement said.

About the Telecom Italia Headquarters, it looks like a redevelopment of the Ministero Delle Finanza (Ministry of Finance) Complex in the EUR district.

The Ministero Delle Finzanze complex was slated for demolition in the 2000s decade, and it was actually in the process of being demolished, but its demolition was halted for some unknown reason, and only the complex's concrete structural frame remains currently.

Based on the renders and models on post #94 of this thread, it looks like Telecom Italia will bring the existing Ministero Delle Finanze complex back to use by gutting it and applying a new exterior facade to it. Based on the photos of its current state, however, I'd rather just finish the demolition of the Ministero Delle Finanze complex and start over from scratch, even if the design for the Telecom Italia Headquarters ends up being changed.

URBAN LIGHTSCAPE INTERNATIONAL IDEAS CONTEST
Modern urban landscapes: light as a means of linking together past, present and future


SUBJECT OF THE CONTEST
AIDI, The Italian Lighting Association – henceforth defined as “Competition Promoter” - in collaboration with APIL, PLDC, Master’s in Lighting Design “Sapienza” and The Roma Tre University, would like to announce the opening of an international lighting ideas contest on an urban scale. This contest, promoted by the National Council of Italian Architects, Planners, Landscapers and Curators along with the Order of Architects of Rome and its Provinces, will be anonymous and consist of a single stage: designing a concept for a lighting system to be used in Rome’s district of EUR, specifically in the area denominated “Pentagon”. The EUR district is a very peculiar area. It was built for the 1942 World’s Fair which, due to the war, never actually took place. Today it represents an outdoor museum of 1930s architecture, to which new structures and services have been added which underline its potential role as the city’s «convention platform».

The lighting systems designed in this project must encompass public, artistic and environmental domains, meeting the needs of this historic city and establishing links between all the elements that make up this complex system. They must also pay particular attention to the relationship between the city’s ancient and modern aspects in a contemporary urban dimension. The lighting systems should preferably use ICT (information e telecommunications) technologies and be designed from a “smart”, systemic and intelligent viewpoint so as to make the district sustainable both in terms of energy/environment, through energy-saving choices and technologies, and in terms of functionality, by ensuring quality urban services which meet the users’ needs. These choices must improve the quality of life of Rome’s citizens by facilitating the usability and productivity of the new services.

The Contest will concern the following areas of EUR (specified in Attachments):
1. “Cristoforo Colombo” route (the stretch located within the Pentagon)
1.1. Historic buildings belonging to the E42 (Palazzo Uffici, Palazzo Previdenza Sociale, Palazzo INA, Palazzo della Civiltà Italiana, Palazzo Congressi, Palazzo dell’Arte Antica, Palazzo delle Arti Tradizionali Popolari, Monumento to Guglielmo Marconi, Palazzo Mostra della Romanità, Palazzo dell’Arte Moderna, Palazzo della Scienza Universale, Basilica dei Ss. Pietro e Paolo ed Archivio Centrale di Stato)
1.2 Buildings constructed after the E42 (Palazzo BNL, Palazzi UNICREDIT, la Nuvola e la Lama, Palazzo Poste Italiane, Torri di Ligini, Palazzo Eni, Palazzo dello Sport ed il Fungo)
2. Lago dell’Eur and Parco del Lago

CONTEST GOALS
1. Creating new attractions in order to revamp the Eur district as a new “convention platform” and services in the culture and entertainment sectors.

2. Enriching one or more buildings, chosen by the designer among those proposed by the Competition Promoter (Attachment B), by giving them a more modern and technological appearance which complements the 1930s architecture largely present in the EUR district, thereby establishing links between past, present and future.

3. Conceiving the district as a hub of interconnecting networks (Smart Economy, Smart Mobility, Smart Environment, Smart Energy, Smart Living and Smart Participation) and integrating these networks in a coordinated design which opens the door to new services and future transformations within the district. The main idea is for citizens to be able to actively participate in the gradual shaping of their district to fit their needs and therefore be incentivized to get the most out of their living experience. Compared to the past, the “smart city” approach will allow us to group many aspects that until now had been considered separate.

4. Improve connections routes between the more modern buildings and the inhabited areas, which could benefit from an integration with the contemporary style of the new buildings.

Italian Culture Minister Dario Franceschini announced on Tuesday the creation of ten autonomous museums and archaeological sites whose directors would be chosen through international competitions. The 10 new sites also include:
* EUR Museums (the National Museum of Ethnography and History, the National Museum of Popular Arts and Traditions, the High Middle Ages Museum)
* National Etruscan Museum
* National Roman Museum
* Appia Park with its wealth of Roman tombs
* Ostia Antica Archaeological Park
* Villa d'Este and Villa Adriana
The move is part of efforts by Franceschini and Premier Matteo Renzi to revamp Italian cultural-site management. Meanwhile, new data was published: the Colosseum attracted more than 6.5 mln tourists in 2015.
