As part of the celebration we have arranged a free guided tour of the Teatro di Documenti, the wonderfully atmospheric multi-level theatre designed and built by Damiani himself, excavated from a seventeenth-century “grotta” (cave). The tour will include an exhibition entitled “Astrazioni Geometriche” (Geometric Abstractions) plus a selection of film clips featuring his work and a permanent display of scenic props, footwear and apparel, posters, sketches and working designs. Visitors can also admire the “Banco Ottico”, an optical device created to project designs in their real dimensions.
The conferences will be held in either English, French, Spanish or Italian with simultaneous or consecutive translation.
The Casa dell’Architettura is located a short stroll from Rome’s Termini mainline station with direct link to Fiumicino airport.
