The topic of the call is “Billboards”

Panteon is an anachronistic venture: anachronistic is the content, anachronistic is the product, anachronistic is its use.

The protagonist is the architecture of the city of Rome, all built between 1911 and 1989 within the GRA, our contemporary city wall, whose analogies are arbitrary and questionable.

Panteon aims to be a platform for architectural debate using the city of Rome as a pretext, as an infinite warehouse from which to draw answers to a potentially infinite number of questions.

Panteon is interested in the publication of articles that, consistent with the theme, talk about buildings erected within the GRA (Grande Raccordo Anulare) between 1911 and 1989.

The interpretation of the theme is free.

The building must be easily and effectively photographable in most of its elements and parts (facades, courtyards, interiors).

Proposed contributions will be selected on the basis of a 500-word abstract, written both in Italian and English, and saved in PDF format (Title_NameSurname.pdf) including a concise but significant selection of pictures and/or images.

The files shall be sent to [email protected] specifying Title, Name, Surname, and Contacts in the text of the email and indicating as object Billboards_title.

The deadline for the pre-selection is the 27th of September 2019.

Papers selected will be communicated to each participant and on the official page

Articles shall not exceed 12,000 characters including spaces, saved and compiled according to the editorial regulations given.

Each article shall include an axonometric image saved as .dwg of the chosen building which will then be included in the Panteon map (see for the current map).

Panteon involves a different photographer and photo editor in charge of each issue. However, it is possible to send one’s own selection of pictures which will be evaluated by the board and possibly used along with the article.

The credits of texts, drawings and pictures will be quoted in the colophon of the magazine.
