On 11th December 2013, the meeting promoted by the Association Cittadinanza Attiva Flaminio (Active Citizenship Flaminio) took place at the MAXXI museum in Rome. The meeting concerned the axis of Via Guido Reni and was attended by about 70 people, including citizens, students, architects and representatives of Capitoline Administration, including the Councillor for Culture of the District II, Emilia La Nave.
During the introduction, prof. Richard D'Aquino explained the terms of the collaboration set up by Cittadinanza Attiva Flaminio with the University of Arkansas Rome Center, Philadelphia University and the Faculty of Architecture of Roma 3. Afterwards, prof. D'Aquino, prof. Andrew Kranis and prof. Simone Ombuen, teachers who led the international workshop 'Flaminia Crossing', presented the urban and architectural solutions proposed by the students during the semester of study on the Guido Reni axis with a focus on the use of 9,000 square meters over 27,000 of the former barracks situated on Via Guido Reni.
The meeting was particularly useful to give voice to the citizens of the study area, both new residents and long-term, and to gather input about needs, such as a Health Collective, multi-purpose spaces designed to accommodate a variety of uses and people, for cultural initiatives and events. In this regard, willingness has been expressed to organise a design competition open to both professionals and the citizens themselves in order to develop transparent and shared design solutions.
