Campo Boario Today
The City of Alternative Economics in Testaccio, at Campo Boario.
The City of Alternative Economics (“Città dell’Altra Economia”) is at the heart of Rome, in the renovated spaces of Testaccio’s Campo Boario, and offers 3,500 square meters for exhibitions, trade, events and meetings to promote alternative market economy: organic and social agriculture, fair trade, renewable energies and green building, reuse and recycling, sustainable mobility – but also a library and a game room, an organic bar and restaurant.
A place to promote civic awareness.
The City of Alternative Economics is one of the first areas in Europe to be entirely dedicated to business practices characterized by the use of low-environmental-impact processes and fair distribution of wealth,companies that do not pursue profit and growth at all costs, and give “people” and “planet” the priority over “profit”.
The City was founded as a place to promote all of Rome’s alternative businesses by offering them exhibition spaces, meeting places, training, research and development.
