Urban legacies between heritage, rights and innovation

Curated by Prof. Carlo Olmo

Urban Legacies is a cycle of seminars in two parts that explores the meaning and consequences of FULL keywords.

The debate aims to produce a theoretical basis that reshapes the concept of Urban Legacy to produce a theory that will underlies FULL researches. It is necessary to create a common lexicon that supports the concept of Legacy and identifies some relevant research fields.

The common places of the twentieth century no longer exist, and the narratives linked to these places are no longer sufficient to describe what remains of them. At the end of the last century we went from keywords based on the history of industry to keywords of urban nature founded on ‘absence’. Emptiness becomes heritage, and buildings or fragments of buildings come fully into the process of becoming legacy, highlighting the problem of the continuous reconstruction of a repressed memory. The challenge is to reconstruct a common-basis vocabulary with the necessary historical depth to redefine the legacy of industrial city. Today, this city needs the foundations of its own legitimacy, its own borders, and its actors and narratives.
