New perspectives of integration rethinking an Italian housing legacy

[vc_row][vc_column][vcex_spacing][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]It was 8th of August, 1991 when the ship Vlora, with 20,000 Albanians on board, arrived to the coast of Apulia. Much has changed since then.

The progressive change in living conditions of the new citizens rises a housing question that increasingly converges with that of parts of Italian society.

This unspoken potential can be imagined as a resource for formulating new strategies of renovation for the existing residential heritage and for building a common ground  ofcohabitation and integration.

New technological services and experimental housing models suggest the possibility of outsourcing many of the spatial and infrastructural features traditionally included in domestic units to integrate the house with the urban space. The provision of public spaces and high-density private buildings make Italian cities a convenient context to apply an effective model of integration between the individual and the collective dimension.


The seminar will take place on Monday 27th November, 11:00 – 13:00, at Centro Interdipartimentale FULL (Toolbox Coworking, Turin), presented by Matteo Robiglio

(DAD | FULL – PoliTO), Nicola Russi (DAD | FULL – PoliTO) and Federico Coricelli (DAD | FULL – PoliTO)


The seminar takes part of Future Urban Legacy Lab Seminar series and will provide grounds for discussion with PhD students about methodological issues, policy implications, and potential developments of the study along different research paths.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
