Since 2010 Outdoor Festival and the organizers of Nufactory have pursued an impressive goal: to transform the face of Rome through art and urban culture from the 2nd to the 31st of October.

Originally taking place in the neighborhood of Ostiense, this year Outdoor opens it doors in an unexpected location of the Capital, the former barracks in Via Guido Reni 7, on a surface of 30,000 square meters that on this occasion will be invaded and reinterpreted by an army of 17 visual artists and 16 international musicians.

The program is intense (installations, talks, movies, gastronomy, music) and we suggest browsing it with care. Here are some of our recommendations to get your bearings: the installations of Greek artist Alexandros Vasmoulakis, the political-poetic works of Filippo Minelli, the mix of graffiti, sculpture and video by 2501, the eclectic abstract art of 108, the two-dimensional labyrinths of Norwegian Martin Whatson and the research of street artist Lucamaleonte centered on the memory and interactive design of No idea.

"A set place and time, a unique moment, unrepeatable, that encloses in itself different temporal planes: the past of the barracks, the present of artistic creation and the future of the redevelopment of the space", this is "Outdoor - Here, Now", said Antonella Di Lullo, curator of the Festival.
