On Saturday, September 30, an exhibition with more faces will be opened at Palazzo Lucarini Contemporary. In 1987, in fact, the Triennale of Milan organized an exhibition titled “The Imaginary City – Nine Projects for Nine Cities”. Franco Purini was assigned at the time to take care of the Roman section that had the theme of “The Political City. The new ministries. ” It was a matter of elaborating a proposal concerning the displacement of the places of politics in the peripheral area of Centocelle which was part of the areas where S.D.O. (Eastern Orientation System). Thirty years later, the results of that meritorious work are presented to the public today, through the exhibition of the original drawings of the time.

To testify to the necessity – nowadays – to take up the lines of the debate on urban planning and architecture in Rome, then, architects of a more recent generation have been invited to offer their personal point of view on the situation of the Eternal City.

The plurality of voices is thus arranged on a double dialectical plane: both the content and the expressive means adopted. An opportunity, therefore, to verify how style is not only a formal element, but a perceptive tool with its autonomous meaning.

At the end of the initiative, Prof. Franco Purini and Piero Ostilio Rossi, on the inauguration will hold a public lesson on the graphic representation of the cities and at the same time will be presented the catalog of the exhibition edited by EraNuova.
