This is the challenge taken up by the Istituto Europeo di Design in Rome which, on the occasion of its 50th anniversary, becomes a promoter of initiatives with the aim of offering not only creative ideas and suggestions that look to the future, but also concrete services for the benefit of the territory.
There is a rich calendar of projects in the pipeline, bringing together the whole teaching agenda under the claim IED for: IED at the service of. Starting on 5 April, at the MAXXI - National Museum of XXI Century Arts, with the exhibition “Roma tra cinquant’anni” (Rome in fifty years). This is the fourteenth edition of IED Factory, an annual format that allows students to attend immersive, interdisciplinary workshops with exceptional curators. This year, through the eyes of photographers and visual artists, possible future scenarios of the capital will be explored and hundreds of students will be asked to imagine the Rome of the future. This will be followed in May by a special edition of “La Città Insegna” (The City Teaches), a cycle of itinerant lessons in historic Roman settings, created with the intention of exploring public space and creating a new form of relationship with the city. This year, IED Roma will complement the week of lessons dedicated to students with four lectures open to the public and included in the Open House Roma calendar. Upcoming projects include a prototype for a reuse and recycling plant together with Roma Capitale, a proposal for the regeneration of three local markets in the Roman suburbs, and a new training scheme for inmates of the Regina Coeli Prison. Particular attention will also be paid to former students who have distinguished themselves in the Institute's various disciplines over the past half century and who have now established themselves as true benchmarks in the world of fashion, design, communication and visual arts. Their experiences will be collected in an editorial publication dedicated to the new generations and produced by the IED students themselves as a thesis project.
