Come back after 4 years the project involving five years ago (2008-2013) the neighborhood and the surrounding areas at Corviale, XI City Hall (Municipio) of Roma. A border area, that of the extreme suburb southwest of the capital, near Portuense road. A new revival for an artistic project that, together with associations and realities of the area, seeks redemption through culture and against marginalization.


They were different from the area’s redevelopment, considered among the 5 most dangerous suburbs of Italy, which over the years have tried to change the appearance and social and urbanization of this neighborhood/palace.

Born in the ’70s as the popular-economic housing solution of a Rome, when there was already living the housing emergency, Corviale is also known as the “serpentone” (trad: “big snake”): on 9 floors and 980 meters in length the urban complex, conceived by architect Mario Fiorentino, welcomes in this unique and immense 1200 family structure (excluding abusive and irregular).

From the video by Urban Experience  (2010, Antonello Anappo tells the origins of the Corvial district between chronicle and anecdotes). 


Today, at a distance of 4 years, ARTmosphere, in collaboration with the local associations, has decided to start the activity again by changing the changing conditions of the area and responding to the lack of cultural offerings in the neighborhood. Therefore, ARTmosfera proposes for this three-year program of Eastern Rome this innovative project of territorial redevelopment in the area of the Town Hall XI: the area where it was and continues to be necessary for a constant effort to revitalize the social fabric and urban regeneration

So Corviale Urban Lab event rebirth on with its sixth edition 21 and 22 September 2017 at  Galleria Il Mitreo, the multifunctional space that offers art, theater and concerts near of the “Serpentone” of Corviale.

During the first night – September 21 at 23 (from Mitreo [link https://www.romecentral.com/event/corviale-lutopia-di-un-quartiere-in-un-palazzo/], Via Marino Mazzacurati , 61) – a night walkabout will revive the exploration of years ago realized by Urban Experience, at midnight in the Serpentone.

The MArteAwards at Corviale

The event falls within the initiatives before the BiennaleMArteLive scheduled for December 2017 within which Corviale Urban LAB will also feature a new event at Galleria Il Mitreo. As always Corviale Urban LAB will also host the MArteAwards the Italian nuova art prize, an acknowledgment of the artistic and cultural value of the artists but also of the workmen who during the year distinguished themselves by their originality, artistic skills, commitment and above all for the significant contribution in terms of innovation, which have given the artistic cultural landscape Italian. During the evenings of 21 and 22 September, the nominations will be announced for each artistic section (music, theater, dance, circus, literature, cinema, video clips, painting, photography, cartoon, illustration, graphics, graffiti, fashion, artistic crafts dj and vj ) and voting on the site arteawards.it will be opened until December when they will be delivered at the BiennaleMArteLive on the closing night on December 10, 2017.

The choice of Corviale as the home of the MArteAwards is symbolic and important because it represents the social redemption of a difficult territory of the Capital and at the same time an opportunity for recognition for artists and talented people who often did not receive the right attention media.

The initiative is organized by the ARTmosfera Association and is part of the Estat Romana program promoted by the Roma Capital Capital of Culture, and realized in collaboration with SIAE.
