Roma Tre University
design: Mario Cucinella Architects


The new complex will be used to house an assembly hall, lecture rooms, meeting rooms, the so-called "agora", offices of the Roma Tre University's rectorate. Parkings are located in underground levels. The project gives great importance to the reduction of energy consumption and environmental issues, while much attention has been given to study of the green spaces, through the presence of trees on the terraces and a system of patios and gardens on different heights.

Rome's Trinità dei Monti Steps reopened after $1.7 million refurbishment


The site reopened today after a year-long refurbishment that returned the stairway to its original splendor. The $1.7 million project was financed by Italian jewelry and luxury goods brand Bulgari. The stairway was immortalized by Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck in the movie "Roman Holiday".




Millions of people have sat on them to eat, drink and smoke while canoodling and enjoying the view over Via Condotti. But that left behind a coating of filth that slowly darkened the once shiny marble. Paolo Bulgari, the chairman of the luxury jewelry house and nephew of its founder, wants to make sure that doesn't happen again. "Restorers have done a great and difficult job. But now I am worried. If we don't set strict rules, the steps will go back to being used as a camping site".






So Rome will deploy more traffic cops to stop people camping out on the iconic steps. "There is an ordinance to stop bivouacs without preventing access" said mayor Virginia Raggi. "I don't think it will be closed at night" she added. She stressed the importance of "averting improper use and degradation" of the Steps, which connect Piazza di Spagna with the church of Trinità dei Monti above.






This was one of the latest restoration of Rome's monuments and landmarks funded by Italy's famous fashion houses in exchange for tax breaks.

GRAB: a walk through Rome's history

Rome will have a new ring road called GRAB, consisting of +44 km of cycle and pedestrian route.

Pedestrian route
Example of a typical street



Cycle route
GRAB will make Rome the city with the world's longest cycle route, starting from a road built 2,300 years ago – Appia Antica – and reaching the contemporary architecture of Zaha Hadid’s MAXXI and street art now invading the districts of Quadraro and Torpignattara. The project is oriented towards tourism, but it can also be useful to some resident cyclists to reach some quarters of Rome, the underground or the regional railways.

Linking together Colosseum, Circus Maximus, Caracalla, St. Peter’s and the Vatican, Gnam, parks and unexpected landscapes (Caffarella and Aqueducts), historical villas (Villa Ada, Villa Borghese, Villa Gordiani), Tiber and Aniene rivers routes, the GRAB is the connection of already existing bike and pedestrian roads within villas and parks which ends up to creating a network of 200 km cycling routes with no interruptions.

GRAB will be ready in the coming years but, as it is based on pre existing bike paths, it is already possible to ride it.

The proposed route

According to the study's results, more than 600.000 tourists are expected to be travelling on the cycle route in the first year only, generating a profit for local economies which should be five times bigger than the initial amount invested for the construction.

Apple is getting ready to open new store in historic palace

After the announcement of Apple's Milanese store, the American hi-tech giant said it will open a new store in the historic Palazzo Marignoli, located between Via del Corso and Piazza San Silvestro in the heart of Rome. British archistar Norman Foster was appointed to redesign the palace spaces.


Innovation and high technology are going to fit into the architectural context thanks to a careful work of preservation and restoration of the historic building. The Rome City Council seems has given the green light, but now Apple must follow some guidelines: outdoor signs, flags or banners are banned; special materials and lighting systems adapted to the urban context should be used.

Rome is getting better all the time. Last time I was there a year ago I was so impressed with changes since my previous visit. Keep up the good work. It has so much to offer, surprised it's not as popular as Paris or even London.

It is not a contradiction, though. Just like PSG is a French football team, even if it is owned by Qatar.
