The first public space for contemporary art on Rome’s urban riverfront
TEVERETERNO is a multidisciplinary non-profit organization whose mission is to reactivate the river in the heart of Rome. It aims to achieve this through the establishment and ongoing stewardship of “Piazza Tevere”, the first and largest dedicated public space for site-specific contemporary art on Rome’s urban riverfront.
TEVERETERNO envisions the Tiber River as a vital, urban park in the heart of Rome; Piazza Tevere site is the laboratory for the cultivation of public interest. Through the creation of sustainable solutions for access and public use, a commitment to long-term maintenance, and regular public programming, the riverfront will become a destination.
The Tiber will provide Romans and tourists a respite from the pace of metropolitan life. As green infrastructure, it will become a pathway through the fabric of the city, and a central venue for artists, architects and planners engaged in the rich dialogue between nature and culture.
TEVERETERNO seeks to implement this vision with the following three strategies: infrastructure (long-term renewal), maintenance (project sustainability) and cultural programming (artistic projects).
TEVERETERNO is conceived as a pilot place-making project. Ultimately, TEVERETERNO re-imagines Rome’s public space and relationship to its river, while forging a new Italian link in the global network of like-minded urban planning initiatives.
