Iconic social centre
Why locals love it
Forte Prenestino is a local institution. In the 80s it was known for its liberal political action, though nowadays it’s considered a cultural hub. They host many activities and events including parties, exhibitions, festivals, film forums, dance, music and theatre courses, and much more.
Why you should visit it
This is one of the oldest social centres in Rome. As it’s located in a 19th century fort, it features amazing underground galleries and rooms, as well as a drawbridge. It also has a big open-air space where concerts and festivals are held in spring and summer.
I recommend "Crack!" – the festival of drawn and printed art.
