Happy Birthday Garbatella: a week of events for the 95 years of the district

Gargatella_Effige_quartire-RomaThe historic district of Garbatella, the so-called “City Garden” in February 18, 2015 celebrates its first 95 years. In the district has already begun to celebrate through a full program of events, given the nature of the popular district all appointments will be free. There will be prizes, exhibitions and musicals and concerts, all organized by neighborhood associations.

The idea to celebrate the birth of the district created in 1920 by Mussolini, was founded about 16 years ago, namely in 1999, and now is an appointment of the district, and over the years the festival has become a city event and thanks to the contribution of the association “Tempo Ritrovato“.

The week of events will end the popular Palladium Theater where we will have the opening of the exhibition “Antique Radio” and the musical comedy, “On the waves of the radio: a story many voices” by the Association I.T.A.C.A (http://www.buoncompleannogarbatella.it/)

The “Garden Cityborn from an  architecturalphilosophy idea that promotes housing in a community integrated context. The Garbatella is a district created to house people displaced following the demolition took by Benito Mussolino in Rome, such as the Bocca della Verità (Mouth of Truth ) and Via della Conciliazione a San Pietro (way of conciliation). The neighborhood, then away from the city, has given birth to various artistic and cultural personalities such as Roman  Maurizio Arena, Valerio Mastandrea, passing by Enrico Montesano, Victor Cavallo, Alberto Sordi, Enzo Staiola, Tiziana Foschi to more traditional interpreter of song Roman Alvaro Amici.

The district was the muse of Pier Paolo Pasolini, Daniel Pennac, Nanni Moretti and many others.

The most illustrious and enlightened architects of fascist, including Gustavo Giovannoni, Marcello Piacentini, Del Debbio, Limongelli, Sabbatini, were inspired by the British architectural models, faithfully taking the inspiration of the dream of Owen of the “Garden City“, where Urbanism is interpreted as container contents social, demonstrating in time how true the proposition for which History is made by people and its rites, Signs and Symbols
