The places of contemporary Rome

Rome has never ceased to add new architectural layers to its topographical fabric, with works carried out in often decentrated areas, in order to requalify its function and adapt the metropolis to the contemporary era

Index

Auditorium Parco della Musica

Via Pietro De Coubertin, 30
Completed in 2002 on a project by Renzo Piano. Around the Cavea stand out three volumes covered with lead slabs that take on a form of beetles and which act as concert halls. In the background, a rare example of a Roman countryside within the city – Map


The Cloud

Viale Asia, 40-EUR
The structure, designed by Massimiliano Fuksas, consists of an underground part, above which rises the glass case that houses the cloud, composed of steel ribs that wrap themselves on themselves, covered by a transparent cloth for an unusual visual effect – Map


Maxxi – Museum of Art of the XXI century

Via Guido Reni, 4/a
Former Montello Barracks, it is inaugurated in 2010 as Museum of Art of the XXI century. Designed by architect Zaha Hadid. The exterior in concrete is presented with curved surfaces and 8 volumes concatenated. Inside, a multi-level plot of stairs leads to the planes where exhibits and experimental activities are hosted – Map


Music Bridge

Built between 2008 and 2011 between the Lungotevere Flaminio and the Lungotevere Cadorna, the bridge is reserved for pedestrian, cycle and public transport use. The steel and reinforced concrete structure develops with two lowered arches – Map


Macro – Museum of contemporary Art in Rome

Via Nizza, 138 and Piazza Orazio Giustiniani, 4
The Macro opens in 2002 as a Museum of contemporary Art in Rome, adapting the former brewing plant Peroni and the ex-slaughterhouse – Map


Parish of God the Merciful Father

Piazza Largo Third Millennium, 8
Realized between 1998 and 2003 on the project of the american Richard Meier, it consists of 3 white sails curved in self-cleaning cement, which symbolize the church as ship that ferried the faithful in the third millennium – Map


Ponte-Settimia-Spizzichino-Roma

Bridge built from 2009 to 2012, connects the Ostiense to the Garbatella district. It has steel arches painted in white, with a lattice structure that vaguely recalls the composition of the DNA – Map


New Tiburtina Station

Via Nomentana, via di Pietralata
Inaugurated in 2011, it consists of a bridge structure linking two large atria. On this you will find the services to the travellers and the accesses to the docks. The gallery-bridge is covered in crystal and supported by a warp of steel uprights – Map


Ara Pacis

Lungotevere in Augusta
The work of Richard Meier is partly made of travertine, with transparent glass areas and other plastaced – Map


Church of the Holy Face of Jesus

Via della Magliana, 162
Built between 2003 and 2006, it has a semi-dome that rests directly on the building. The large window in the shape of a rosette wets the interior of Light by placing it in direct communication with the exterior, consisting of a “V” shaped churchyard – Map


The City of Sport

Via Casilina, 00038 (zona Tor Vergata)
Designed to host the 2009 World Aquatics Championships, it is a unfinished work, of which a gigantic white modular structure, the “shark-fin glider”, is visible. It is thought of its demolition, given the lack of funds to complete it – Map


Parish of St. Francis de Sales

Viale Alessandrino, 585
Built between 2003 and 2005, it has a special cover covered with copper tiles with a curved pattern that projects towards the entrance portal, consisting of three white marble frames inserted into each other – Map
