In the City that changes but remains Eternal: in Rome with Mint List

A city «slow in its global vision» but that «moves a lot in the daily»: it is Rome, in the story of Maria Azzurra Rossi, co-founder of Mint List, an advertising and communication agency. Here the transformations of mobility and urbanism have returned new life and interest to neighborhoods and squares, where the stories of millions of citizens, tourists and non-residents weave together

“Inside the City” #02 - Mint List

“Rome always surprises you, because you never really get to know it. It has this ease of becoming immediately neighborhood... And there are many neighborhoods that have changed over the years, have developed: Pigneto, Torpignattara and Centocelle since the opening of the new metro have seen a new development, a flourishing. One of the last to see this change is the Esquiline area».

The journey through the character and urban transformations of Rome begins with the words of Maria Azzurra Rossi, co-founder together with Giulia Milza of Mint List, a public relations and communication agency dedicated to the world of architecture, design and events, founded in the Capital in 2013.

A story started from Piazza Madonna dei Monti, which is intertwined with that of millions of workers and students, citizens and tourists, who move every day to millions in the shadow of monuments, streets and palaces places both witnesses and protagonists of the history of a City, which in its change remains Eternal.

An alternative look at the city, which Mint List has just fully expressed through a mapping of sites dedicated to design and architecture in the capital. Rome List collects 35 places divided into 6 categories (Relax, Marvel, Explore, Learn, Shop and Taste) chosen based on the value of the project, the architectural relevance and the stories related to designers or owners, offering a guide aimed at architects and designers, to tourists and Romans, to enthusiasts and simple curious.

“The advice that I often give to friends who come to visit it is: do not make too many programs about where to go, maybe tourist places but simply discover. Rome is slow in its global vision but then in the daily moves a lot, sometimes it is a crazy pinball”.
