Call For Papers



Panteon is an anachronistic venture: anachronistic is the content, anachronistic is the product, anachronistic is its use.

The protagonist is the architecture of the city of Rome, all built between 1911 and 1989 within the GRA, our contemporary city wall, whose analogies are arbitrary and questionable.

Panteon aims to be a platform for architectural debate using the city of Rome as a pretext, as an infinite warehouse from which to draw answers to a potentially infinite number of questions.

For each issue there is a call for papers published in the previous one, indicating the topic and the modalities of participation.

For each call for papers, the editorial board will choose up to four articles.




Panteon #2


The topic of the call is "Acquedotti”


From the myths of foundation further on, great infrastructures have always been a fundamental theme for Rome since its inception.

Their state of neglect, together with the common attacks coming from the new gurus of the «smart city 2.0», probably deriving from lack of understanding of their architectural quality, tells the story of a change in perspective about the urban infrastructures. Tangenziale Est (designed by Kenzo Tange), now under demolition, a huge arterial road that runs through the city just like ancient aqueducts did, is the symbol of this conceptual shift.

Panteon calls for a theoretical exploration of the concept of the aqueduct/infrastructure, on a semantic, compositional and landscape level, but also on the more direct logistic and urbanistic point of view.

The interpretation of the subject is free.
The building must be easy to be well photographed in most of its elements and parts (façades, courtyards, interiors).

Contributions will be selected on the basis of a 500-word abstract, in Italian and English, saved in .PDF format (Title_NameSurname.pdf), and including a short but significant selection of pictures and/or images. Files shall be sent to panteonmagazine@gmail.com specifying title, name, surname, and contacts in the text of the email and indicating as object Aqueducts_title.

Each article shall include an axonometric image saved as .dwg which will be included in Panteon map.

The board will take it into consideration and decide whether to use one or more pictures for the article. Credits for texts, drawings, and pictures will be aknowledged in the colophon of the magazine.
