In the countryside of Rome, hidden in a forest outside a small village, there is a forgotten renaissance pavilion. It’s the Bramante’s Nymphaeum, designed by the famous Italian architect Donato Bramante, built at the beginning of the fifteenth century by the Colonna family in Genazzano, near Rome.

It was the main element of a huge garden, with some lakes and a small river, located on the hillside next to the main door of the town. It was abandoned right after its completion.

Participants of this competition are asked to reuse this space as a theatre and a public park.

Is it possible to bring life back into this abandoned ruin?

The answer to this question is in the hands of the architects and the students who will participate in this competition.
