The Tiber is to Rome what the Seine is to Paris and the Thames to London, a landmark that bisects one of the great cities of the world.
Motivated by the conviction that art is a potent catalyst for environmental awareness and urban renewal, TEVERETERNO is a unique, free, multi-disciplinary project that aims to contribute to the revitalization of Rome’s Tiber River by establishing a lively public gathering place — the Piazza Tevere, on a central section of the Tiber between Ponte Sisto and Ponte Mazzini.
Each year, international artists are invited to create innovative, site-specific art installations, stimulating a dialogue between nature and the urban construct, between history and present.
The project has been adopted by Rome’s Department of City Planning as a cornerstone to the revival of the Tiber, and it is now officially part of the new City Plan of Rome. Through the creation of evocative environmental works, TEVERETERNO aspires to contribute to the revival of rivers worldwide.
