Built between 1927 and 1929, the "National Bath for Experiments in Naval Architecture" was intended for testing hulls and propellers, based on experiments based on Newton's law of "mechanical similarity". The tank, now partially converted, houses the headquarters of the Department of Engineering (studies, laboratories and lecture hall), of the University of Roma Tre. The visit by architect Niccolò Cau will illustrate how the reconversion project was developed to preserve the historical scientific value of the pool, contributing to the conservation of the Genius Loci. The operation of the tank during the experiments will also be deepened, also with the help of video and photographic material.
