Summertime. Times and Cultures of Coexistence in Public Spaces

Summertime. Times and Cultures of Coexistence in Public Spaces AbstractThis paper presents a case study the Estate Romana (Roman Summer), an initiative promoted between 1977 and 1985 by Rome’s city councilor for culture, Renato Nicolini. Starting from the alternative reuse of archaeological sites, decayed places and abandoned territories, through the interaction with cinema, dance, theatre and poetry performances, the events of the Estate Romana are elements of an “immaterial urbanism” that revived the economic and overall destiny of the Italian capital. In a period characterized by great social and political crisis, the rediscovery of ephemeral practices introduced urban governance tools particularly aimed at rebuilding spaces for collective life. In discussing the Estate Romana, the aim is to investigate the ability of festival architectures, or non-architectures, to shape the city, rediscovering extant heritage not only in cultural terms but also in its innovative values. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Architecture and Culture Taylor & Francis
