SPAM is the title of Rome's inaugural Architecture Week.
10-18 Oct. Rome's guild of architects launches the inaugural edition of Settimana del Progetto di Architettura nel Mondo (SPAM), highlighting the issues that govern the urban, social and economic transformations of major cities, with a particular focus on Rome.
Under the title Dream City, the nine-day festival based at the Casa dell'Architettura will address questions such as what Rome can do to bring architecture back to the centre of its urban agenda, and how to involve citizens on matters such as sustainability and the environment.
Each day of the festival will feature lectures, discussions and workshops on a specific theme relating to Rome, involving young architects and architectural students, as well as a programme of talks aimed at schoolchildren.
