Save the date: next Saturday, 23rd March we will host the second EDU@LabGov community gardening session in Luiss Community Garden from 10 am to 13am.
The LabGovers will work in order to improve and complete the prototype of the platform that they are building. This session will represent a fundamental moment to practically apply what they have learnt during the first three modules in the classroom. This is not only a didactic moment, it is a collaborative practice that they will see to bud a project on which the LabGovers (students of the Urban Clinic of LabGov) are assiduously working and with passion.

The third workshop of the Urban Clinic EDU@LabGov 2019 took place on Friday the 15th of March into the Viale Romania Campus of LUISS University. The workshop has inaugurated the start of the third module of the course. The module was dedicated to “Urban Law and Policy”. Indeed, the Laboratory hosted three important experts on these themes: prof. Christian Fernando Iaione, lawyer Nico Moravia, and dr. Paola Marzi.
Iaione, the scientific co-director of LabGov, teaches Urban Law and Policy and
Urbanistic Law at LUISS University.
Moravia is partner of the law firm Pavia-Ansaldo (administrative law department).
Marzi is an official of the municipality of Rome as Head of the office for the
Urban Gardens, and has a long experience on these themes since she has
participated in the drafting of the Regulation of Urban Gardens of Rome.
workshop was introduced by the speech of Prof. Iaione, who talked about his
experiences in the urban regeneration field. He exposed the project of
Co-Bologna (http://co-bologna.it/): the
program started 7 years ago and its effects were such as to spread his
principles in Italian cities like Turin, Rome and Reggio-Emilia, but also in
others parts of the world like New York, Amsterdam and Sao Paulo.
experiences demonstrated how important is to rewrite administrative and
urbanistic legislation in order to face all the problems brought in the cities
by the changes of the third millennium. What is fundamental in this process is
the participative paradigm, that means involving as much as possible all the
different urban stakeholder in order to re-define the way of living the urban
Moravia showed how it worked in the roman context, by showing the case of the
Ex-Dogana: an un-used space, owned by Cassa Depositi e Prestiti, brought back
to life by the efforts of four young entrepreneurs. The cohesion of legal,
human and economics competences, made possible to find a new and simple
solution, like a temporary leasing contract, and create what now is one of the
most important experiences of this kind in Rome.
One of the
sectors where the participative paradigm is more successful and better applied
is the urban garden’s one. Dr. Marzi explained how gardens are the place where
it is possible to focus all the energies and differences of a neighborhood, not
only as a place where plants grow, but as an instrument of social inclusion,
that generates wellness and new solutions to co-live the city by building up new
forms of community.
Module of the Urban Clinic LabGov EDU 2019 continued with the Co-Working
session, held on March 16th. The co-working session is facilitated
by Chiara De Angelis, Friends of LabGov’s ex-president.
Co-Working session took place in the LUISS Campus of Viale Romania and it started
at 10 am with Pasquale Tedesco’s testimony, expert of Confagricoltura ().
He talked about
the importance of the relationship between Earth and Nature and the fortune to
enjoy some products that Earth offers.
inspirational session, Chiara De Angelis explained the Labgovers service
design, an important passage to complete and improve the idea that they’re
developing during this A.A. of LabGov EDU. For this reason, the LabGovers were
divided into groups in order to select the “personas” (consumer type) of their
product/service, basing on their previous research.
In the afternoon, the LabGovers developed the user journey map to describe the possible experience consumers might have through the platform that they are developing.
Save the date: on 15th and 16th March will take place the third weekend of the EDU@LabGov Urban Clinic in Luiss Guido Carli University!
Friday 15th March from 16pm to 18pm in the Luiss Campus, we will host a lecture of professor Christian Iaione about Urban Law and Policy, and we will hear the testimony of lawyer Nico Maravia from law firm Pavia & Ansaldo and of the dr. Paola Marzi from the Municipality of Rome, who will speak about the Regulation on the urban gardens that she wrote for the Municipality of Rome.
Saturday 16th march from 10am to 17pm, will be held the third session of co-working. It will be divided into two part. First, we will hear Pasquale Tedesco’s experience: he is an expert in environmental sustainability, sustainable and synergic agriculture and in the field of urban and social gardens. In the second part of co-working the EDU LabGov team, thanks to the guide of Chiara De Angelis and Daniela Patti, we will speak about the process of design focusing on the user journey maps. In this way, the LabGovers will analyze all the passages of their project, they will answer to the needs of the ‘personas’ (the users object of their project) and they will define the various sections and the categories of contents of the platform that they are developing.
The next meetings are very important in order to complete and improve the
idea that it is taking form more and more.
The process of the Edu@LabGov Urban Clinic’s action on the city/university territory continues with the Community Gardening session which took place last Saturday the 9th of March 2019 in the LUISS Community Garden from 10 am to 12 am.
first divided into three groups, started working to the construction of three prototypes
of their project, using waste/recycled. Following the project’s idea elaborated
during the Co-Working sessions in class, and also thanks to the advices of agronomist
and botanist, dr. Barbara Invernizzi, the students completed the structure with
hours of Community Gardening represented the starting point of a process of
collaborative action which aims to concretize the principles of sustainability
and circular economy which are central for the Urban Clinic. Nevertheless, the self-construction

Gli appuntamenti della
Clinica Urbana EDU@LabGov continuano con la seconda sessione di Community
Gardening che si è svolta lo scorso sabato 9 marzo 2019, presso l’#OrtoLUISS,
dalle 10:00 alle 12:00.
I LabGovers, dapprima
suddivisi in tre gruppi, hanno iniziato a lavorare alla realizzazione di tre prototipi
creati attraverso il riuso di materiali destinati allo scarto. Seguendo l’idea
progettuale frutto delle sessioni di Co-Working in aula, ed i consigli dell’agronoma
e botanica Barbara Invernizzi, gli studenti hanno completato lo scheletro della
struttura con ottimi risultati.
I principi della
collaborazione, la sostenibilità e l’economia circolare giocano un ruolo
cardine negli appuntamenti di community Gardening nell’orto universitario della
Luiss. Il laboratorio di autocostruzione (che si svolge in parte degli
appuntamenti di Community Gardening) continua ad essere una palestra di
collaborazione essenziale anche per comprendere l’importanza del saper
rispettare i tempi di una progettualità (allenando alla lentezza), e al fine di
raggiungere obiettivi comuni.
Il lavoro giungerà a conclusione
nel giro delle due prossime sessioni di Community Gardening, previste per il 23
marzo e il 27 aprile.
the date: next Saturday, 9th March we will host the first EDU@LabGov
community gardening session in Luiss Community Garden from 10 am to 12am.
LabGovers will work with recycled materials in order to build a prototype that
they will install in Luiss and in the city of Rome. If you are interested in

The assisted gardening is not only a didactic
moment but an activity of practical collaborative among the boundaries of the University
Luiss Guido Carli, that then the students will experiment on the field in the
city of Rome.
Save the date: Sabato 9 marzo si terrà
il primo community gardening della Clinica Urbana EDU@LabGov presso l’#OrtoLuiss
dalle 10:00 alle 12:00.
Durante la sessione di community
gardening i LabGovers, divisi dapprima in quattro gruppi sulle diverse aree di
lavoro, dovranno presentare i dati raccolti nel corso della settimana e
iniziare a dar forma al loro progetto. Inizieranno quindi un laboratorio di
auto-costruzione che, tramite l’utilizzo di materiali riciclati, li porterà a
realizzare un prototipo che installeranno nella città di Roma. Se volete

è mettere in pratica ciò che gli studenti stanno apprendendo durante i moduli
in aula, quindi rappresenterà un importante passo avanti nella realizzazione
della loro idea.
Il gardening assistito non è solo un
momento didattico ma un’attività di pratica collaborativa tra le mura
dell’Università Luiss Guido Carli, che poi gli studenti sperimenteranno sul
campo nella città di Roma.
Co-working session “Entrepreneurial lab” with Alessandro Piperno
The Module II of the Urban Clinic of LabGov EDU 2019 continues with a Co-working session on March 2nd, “Entrepreneurial lab” facilitated by Alessandro Piperno (Phd student at the Department of Economics and Management of LUISS University).
The co-working session takes place in the LUISS Campus of Viale Romania and starts at 10 am with a recap on the project idea that the LabGovers (the students enrolled in the Urban Clinic) are incubating: a network of digital community gardens spread among city neighborhoods that among the other things provide contents on food, wellness and healthy lifestyle. The co-working session of the “Entrepreneurial lab” of March 2nd is focused on the design of the social business model of the entrepreneurial idea.
After an introduction on the main features of a social enterprise, an hybrid enterprise aimed at solving social challenges with a sustainable business model, the group worked on the identification and definition of the main services that the enterprise wants to offer. This phase of the co-working session leveraged on the work carried by the four LabGovers’ working groups in the period between the modules.
After the definition of the service, the LabGovers are divided into groups and worked on the social business model canvas, identifying its core elements: stakeholders; actions; resources; types of intervention; channels to distribute the service; beneficiaries of the action and targets; clients and users; revenues; costs.
