The Atlas is an open system gathering visions on the city. Projects, actions, publications, web sites, theories. Everything can be included in the atlas to create a shared information space.

The Atlas lives across digital and physical spaces.

On the web, an open system is used to add visions and to access the ones that are already present through territory, time and the semantic space.

In the physical space, the Atlas is a large scale installation designed for public spaces. Here people can access the shared information either visually, by observing the 35 meter wide information aesthetics, or they can directly interact with information by using multitouch screens allowing direct connection to the projected surface, browsing information through categories, territories and times.

The walls of the public spaces animate themselves, communicating the stratification of the multiple points of view, ideas, projects, events and voices that define the life of the city, its emotions, its desires and strategies.

The Atlas is an open project, instantiated for the first time in the city of Rome, where it has been curated by Paolo Valente and commissioned by the Order of the Architects for the Festa dell'Architettura 2010 ( Index Urbis http://www.indexurbis.it/ ) with the name "Atlante di Roma", with the fundamental collaboration of the Council for Communication and Cultural Policies of the City of Rome.

The project is based on the creation of a complex network of institutions, professionals, academics and other subjects expressing or telling the visions on the life and on the possible evolutions of the city, of the relations and interactions among its citizens, of public spaces, of information and social interaction.

The experience will be replicated, during the next months, in other cities both in Italy and in the rest of the world.
