Viaggio nelle città invisibili di Roma

Rome, the Eternal City, a microcosm that embodies several cities, from those emblazoned downtown to the most popular suburbs. But there are also invisible to most cities, wasteland and abandoned on the edge of the city, deliberately excluded from the urban fabric, in their desolation stand dormant in memory of their sublime beauty, like lunar landscapes wrapped in the city hectic. A journey into the heart of these realities, dall'incompiuta City of Tor Vergata Sports, ephemeral monumentality of the Gasometer, the abandonment of the Flaminio Stadium, the isolation of Corviale, the journey continues through the uncertain fate of the racecourse Tor Valle and the new buildings never completed the Z2 complex, Z3 of Piazza of the Navigators, landing finally all'utopica "Tree House" Fregene.
timeless city at the same time interact with the same time, ruptures in the open territory that can and must become a driving force for growth and urban renaissance, economic and social.
