For the last 5,000 years, since the first recorded exchange of dowry in 3,000 BCE, couples have been tying the knot and exchanging "I do"s. Whether civil or religious, weddings are a natural celebration of love and a day marked with joy. In Italy, Rosciano castle has been a popular wedding site for lovers from all over the world. Thanks to a thousand-year history and views overlooking the Assisi valley, the Etruscan fortress oversees more than 100 nuptials a year.
Back in March, Young Architects Competitions announced a new architectural competition called 'Wedding Oasis' inviting young designers and architects to transform the site into an idyllic wedding location with pavilions, suites and extensions in harmony with the breathtaking surroundings of the historic monument – without neglecting modern comforts like weatherproof alfresco dining and Wi-Fi connectivity.
