The theme of the competition, to whose definition the Adrianea Academy of Rome contributes, concerns the design of new main entrance to the Roman Forum at the Basilica of Massenzio and of a new museum pavilion on the Velia hill, near the Antonio Cederna of Villa Rivaldi Silvestri; there will be inspections, conferences and seminars with invited teachers and designers.
During the semester, the teaching staff of the laboratory will be available in one of the classrooms of the teaching buildings for 5 hours a week, divided into two days to facilitate the participation of students without taking them away from the normal attendance of the courses; the presence is not obligatory in any case and the members who will produce the project according to the modalities foreseen by the program and will deliver it within the deadlines set for the final selection, will be awarded 4 credits.
A commission made up of professors from other universities will eventually award prizes (first, second and third places) and possible mentions; the exhibition and the bilingual publication of the results are planned.
Other information will follow about the official presentation of the workshop, the illustration of the program and the various activities that will take place, including conferences and seminars, which will be of interest to a wider audience.
