On May 21 –22 returns to Rome the weekend dedicated to Architecture with 100s of sites to visit.
On the 21st and 22nd of May 2022, everyone will have the chance to explore the great architecture and design of contemporary structures, historical buildings, and even private houses all over Rome. Thanks to Open House Rome (an international event, which involves every year 50 cities in the world), more than 200 sites will open their doors for two days to visitors and tourists alike.
This is the 10th edition of Open House Rome. This year the events are divided into six categories: Abitare (visits to private apartments), Architettura del Quotidiano (little known buildings to many of the city’s residents), Bed & Food, Attraversare la storia (exploring Rome’s buildings through the various historical ages), Patrimonio Creativo, and Città della conoscenza (visiting the city’s sites of knowledge, culture and research).
The program includes iconic places, such as cultural institutes, representative offices, and academies (the Egyptian Academy, the Danish Institute, Villa Medici – French Academy, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation), museums, historic buildings, sites of scientific and cultural interest.
The highlights of this year include the park and solar tower of villa Mellini (headquarter of the astronomical observatory of Rome), San Michele tower in Ostia, Angelini headquarters, Palazzo Piacentini on via Veneto, Forte Pietralata, former pasta factory of Pantanella, Casino dell’orologio in Villa Borghese, and Luiss’ Villa Blanc.
