Call for Papers: IX International Conference ReUso Roma 2021. Rome, capital of Italy 150 years later: Contemporary topics. Rome, 1-3 December 2021

The principle of compatible use is one of the most emblematic aspects of the conservation of architectural, landscape, archaeological and historical-artistic heritage in Europe and beyond. It represents a key point for the contemporary architectural culture. The tendency to use, and sometimes abuse not only individual architectural complexes but entire urban contexts and historic centers of different sizes, has spread further in the last decades. To this end, ReUso, on the occasion of the historic 150th anniversary of the capital of Rome, wishes to highlight the convergent attention and possible actions on the heritage of the past, on Italian and international architectural and archaeological realities with different criteria and methods of intervention.
Since the first edition of Madrid 2013, a group of colleagues who are sensitive to some architectural achievements in progress began to reflect on the importance of the quality of interventions on individual buildings, urban centres, and the landscape by organizing the first conference that laid the foundations for the next nine meetings. Now here in Rome, we want to continue and above all to consolidate the criteria and methodological aspects proposed by ReUso in relation to present needs and above all to possible future orientations.
The eventual remote modality for non-residents in Italy will be arranged in the case of a permanent state of emergency due to COVID-19.
