The production of urban memory: an interdisciplinary roundtable

Casa degli Artisti, corso Garibaldi 89, Milano

In our memory-obsessed time, cities have become places for the elaboration of images of the past that serve as a background for understanding, legitimizing, or contesting urban transformations. How are these cultural representations produced? How are they institutionalized, for example in UNESCO listings, cultural heritage initiatives, or public history projects? To what extent are they capable of integrating the changing demands of memory coming from a plurality of social subjects?

Round table and book/research presentation coordinated by:

  • Filippo De Pieri - Politecnico di Torino
