"Beyond the Gaze. Interpreting and Understanding the City".
OsTIUM will be present at the conference with a contribution of Anna Saviano (UCLouvain - LOCI) entitled "Ostia Ri-Vista", The contribution reconstructs the role played by architectural magazines in the dissemination in Italy and abroad of ancient Ostia antica rediscovery from the end of the 19th century. The aim is to highlight how the publication of Ostia in a state of ruin, restored or reconstructed, has led a gradual assimilation of ancient constructive and urban characteristics in the society and culture, to promote urban interventions capable of combining innovation with ancient world references.
