"Rome is an "interrupted city" because we have ceased to envision it" said Giulio Carlo Argan, Mayor of Rome in 1978.

This project, Roma Interrotta [a.p.o.v.], is a thread that connects the visions of Ancient Rome, with the utopian ideas of the 70s, and up to present day.
The engravings of Nolli and Piranesi immortalized some of the most beautiful views of the Rome of the past.
Then the proposals of the 12 architects of the original project changed all this: not with urban plans, nor with concrete blueprints, but with a series of imaginary exercises by means of voyages through the Memory of the Eternal City.
So it is a continuing search through ever-fertile ground even 40 years after its first conception: looking to the past to understand the future.
The aim is to open a debate: that is, utopia as a concrete philosophy to be transformed into reality, because sometimes it is necessary to imagine the impossible to design the possible.
