A series of seminars to discuss urban regeneration and social innovation in Naples

On Tuesday the 16th of May 2017 Professor Christian Iaione, LabGov coordinator, will be in Naples to hold a seminar on the topic “The commons in Italy, between urban economies and public policies”.

His lesson is part of a series of seminars organized by Professor Giovanni Laino within the framework of the course Urban and metropolitan policies (UPTA) offered by the Architecture Department (DIARC) of the University Federico II in Naples.

The series of seminars, titled “Riuso contenitori dismessi, tra rigenerazione e innovazione sociale”, allows its participants to analyze topics such as the reuse of vacant urban spaces and buildings, urban regeneration and social innovation from different perspectives. This is possible thanks to the contributions brought by scholars, experts and practitioners with both a strong knowledge and practice in these fields. Each lesson will be the occasion to discover the experience of a different city (from Milan to Bari and Brindisi, with a special focus on Naples itself) ad to learn about the innovative processes that are regenerating our cities and our communities.

The previous seminars saw the participation of Claudio Calvaresi (Avanzi – Innovation and urban regeneration in Milan, Base and much more), Giuseppe Micciarelli (University of Salerno – The reuse of ex-spaces in Naples as citizenship laboratories), Roberto Covolo (Laboratorio Urbano Brindisi – Ex Fadda in San Vito dei Normanni), Claudio Morelli and Teta Sepe ( Metropolitan city and Neaples Municipality), Carla Tedesco (IUAV and Bari Municipality – The ex-Caserma Rossani in Bari) and Emma Ferulano (Chi rom e chi no – Chiku, regenerating a space in Scampia). Additionally the last seminar, which will take place on Thurday the 18th of May, will be held by Annibale D’Elia and will focus on the topic “Places, between social innovation and change”.
