In the latest few years the ex Slaughterhouse, located in Testaccio, has become an important cultural pole for the whole city of Rome. The project of recovery, promoted by the capitolian administration, has started a process of reuse of its ancient pavilions to create the City of Arts, which provides the arrangement of multi-function spaces dedicated to culture and technical artistical education, such as the Macro, the Department of Architecture, the Academy of Fine Arts and the Testaccio Popular School of Music and, in addition, along with other installations, the areas and pavilions of â€śCittĂ dellâ€™Altra Economiaâ€ť e of â€śPelandaâ€ť.
In 2000, with the restoration of Pavilion 7, the Faculty of Architecture (today Department) has been the first public institution to settle in the ex Slaughterhouse, after its dismission started in July 1975. In 2010, the 15th Pavilion was restored as well, and now it contains the new library which disposes more than 90 reading seats. Three new pavilions (2b-4-8), in 2013, have been completely restored and equipped to welcome wide and open classrooms, laboratories, offices and spaces for students. Nowadays, a project promoted by Roma Capitale, for the requalification of Piazza Giustiniani and the internal courtyard of the complex, is in progress.

The historical head office, named Argiletum and located in Via Madonna dei Monti, hosts classrooms for post-lauream courses, as well as professorsâ€™ and researchersâ€™ offices. The Argiletum is situated in the most ancient roman quarter, the Suburra, a few steps far from Colosseum and the Roman Forum; it is accessible from Via Madonna dei Monti, an ancient route of the Argiletum, along which, still today, medieval houses, seventeenth century residential complexes and eighteenth century mansions are seemlessly placed.
