Cover of the Auditorium of the Emperor Adriano
The project of the Cover of the archaeological remains of the so-called ‘Athenaeum Hadriani’, comes from a deep reflection about the place and its complex history. It is symbolically based on the idea of a cracked marble plate exposed to a process of dematerialization, as an explicit connection to the ancient function of the Auditorium - that is a place used to allow the verbal transmission of thinking - but principally a reference to the ‘Forma Urbis Romae’, the Severan marble Plan of Rome existing in the past near this site.
