This is an important theme to talk about for us Italian citizens. Massimiliano Fuksas is one of the most important architects on the world. He has his main offices in Rome and for Rome he designed, maybe, his most important work: the "Nuvola" (Cloud).
This project is beeing realized in Rome, in the EUR area, as new city meeting center. The opera will be huge; is composed by a structure of steel and glass about 180 meters long, 65 meters wide and 60 meters tall for about a total area of 15000 square meters. But the main part of the project is the "Nuvola": something like a cloud "flying" inside the glass box, 35 meters tall.
This project could be really important for Italy and above all for the city of Rome but the huge problem is that different causes already stopped the construction. Rome is an ancient city and it's really difficult to plan new art projects to let the city grow up in a more modern way. This wonderful city lacks many things, above all for tourism reception and people comfort. A lot of people speak about the incredible 250.000.000 Euros that the "Nuvola" will cost when finished, above all because many of these moneys could have been used to fix some of city deficiencies. We hope to see the project finished for 2013, as they have recently promised.
