Savorengo Ker, the house of All, now online

Savorengo Ker, which means “the house of all” in Romanes, is an experimental housing project which took place in the Roma Gypsy camp Casilino 900 in Rome. It is the story of a simple and brave idea which became the symbol of emancipation for a marginalized community. The project was hosted at the Venice Architecture Biennale and was visited by Members of the European Parliament, reviewed by the international press and debated in academic centres around the world. But in Rome, where the house was built and presented, it met only hostility and unnecessary controversy. Now that house is no more.
