Returning for its 5th edition, This Is Rome is back in the capital today and tomorrow, the 17th and 18th of October. This event, born in the club scene, highlights the most interesting components of culture that characterize the capital of Italy, Rome. This year, the event moves into the famous walls of Rome’s new cultural center, Palazzo Incontro, where the structure and exhibition spaces better express the various themes of the festival.
This Is Rome moves past its music-themed beginnings to grow into an event that incorporates exhibits of all kinds: graphic art, urban art, audiovisual installations, and even food from the Roman culinary scene. Over two days, This Is Rome tells the stories of the new players in the capital, players who cultivate and foster creativity.
