introduce Lucio Valerio Barbera, coordina Vieri Quilici

per provocare il dibattito:
La sorte di Roma, Capitale laica, grande città moderna, già da alcuni decenni sembra uscita dall’attenzione del governo centrale, per la cui istituzione essa tuttavia fu ideata. La coscienza civica delle popolazioni italiane pare ne abbia già espulsa l’immagine da ogni possibile disegno di migliore futuro. È, dunque, il tempo di discutere apertamente sul ruolo di Roma nei prossimi decenni, o nel prossimo secolo se ne abbiamo la temerarietà. Un po’ di freddezza “accademica” farà superare i veli del coinvolgimento politico e culturale. Forse ormai il problema non è quello del destino di Roma Capitale dello Stato, ma dello Stato unitario come lo conosciamo. Sembra quasi che i due progetti di Cavour – prima il Regno d’Italia del Nord, e poi quello unitario, Nord e Sud insieme – siano di nuovo in alternativa fra loro. Oggi il progetto del Nord pare spingersi verso una qualche realizzazione e il Sud sembra rivelare un’identità politica separata più di quanto si sia a lungo sperato. Saranno costretti, Nord e Sud, nel loro stesso interesse, a parlarsi – come già fanno – a trovare un accordo, a misurare la distanza possibile tra loro, a calcolarne costi e benefici. E nello iato tra le due Italie si accentuerà l’isolamento di Roma. Anzi, la sua inerme solitudine.

Urban Anemia

#urbananemia; in the international workshop Puerto Rico Re_Start (http://puertoricorestart.org/) with the participation of
UNESCO Chair in Sustainable Quality and Urban Culture, notably in Africa I diagnosed
the situation of the human settlement in the area as URBAN ANEMIA.

#urbananemia: human settlement physically and functionally appears to be still in a good
state but the demographic, social, economic and cultural resources are in a continuous silent
decrease. The first symptoms of URBAN ANEMIA is the necrosis of marginal settlements.

Lucio Barbera @ Puerto Rico Re_start, 16-24 March 2018.

Background
After the consequential Hurricanes Irma and Maria passage through the Island of Puerto Rico and the Caribbean Islands, the Office of UF VP Dr. David Norton opened the possibility of supporting UPR Faculty and Graduate Students for a limited stay at UF. We were able to receive two Faculty members and 7 students for 4 weeks. CHU acted as the host of the activities and actively engaged in logistics and academics with the visitors. Sponsored by Dean Anumba DCP, and Director Alread SOA, we developed jointly the ideas for an International Workshop, to be held yearly in Puerto Rico. The first edition will be in 2018 from March 16th to 26th

The Puerto Rico Re_Start PREP, the preparatory instance held between October 16th and October 30th, presented its results publicly on November 1st in the School of Architecture. It produced extensive background research, bibliographic and web content, alumni linkages, consolidated in a google drive data bank. The visitors returned to Puerto Rico after the conclusion.

The PR RS International Project Workshop has gathered the support of The Chancellor of UPR, the UNESCO Chair in Sustainable Urban Quality and Culture Rome, the UF Center for Latin American Studies and the College of DCP through academic units and Centers.

Proposal
The Puerto Rico Re_Start International Project Workshop, PR_RS co-organized by the University of Florida and the University of Puerto Rico will address the resiliency of the Islands, with expected consequences for the Virgin Islands, Guadalupe, Dominica, Barbuda,
Haiti and Cuba. Interdisciplinary participants will gather around subjects of research and proposals. Professionals, faculty and students from UPR, UF, and international institutions from Europe and Latin America will direct the Design Laboratories, while an Open Lecture Series will discuss publicly the advancement scenarios. Representatives from stakeholders and public officials will join the discussions. Results will be presented publicly and published.

Sea Level Rise and the Future of Coastal Settlements
February 28-March 12th 2016

The UNESCO Chair in Sustainable Urban Quality and Urban Culture (UNESCO Chair) with the Consortium for Hydro-generated Urbanism (CHU) University of Florida are co-organizing a two week international workshop examining specific problems of sea level rise and its related effects on urban structures (financial centers, tourist settlements, leisure centers) and infrastructures (water management, mobility, energy generation) as exemplified in the Miami-Dade region and applicable world-wide. Scholars, students and professions from around the globe will be introduced to these pressing issues by traveling to New York City and to Miami and will subsequently gather at the University of Florida to participate in a 5-day interdisciplinary workshop intended to generate integrated proposals for urban resiliency (March 7th-11th). The participants will convene in New York City to discuss case study plans with various stakeholders and then will proceed to Miami to investigate urban and environmental vulnerabilities with regional experts and policy makers visiting key sites for visioning. An extended interdisciplinary team will formulate strategies of opportunity in response to the challenges of climate change. The results will be discussed on Saturday March 12th in a public forum at the University of Florida College of Design Construction and Planning. Daily public lectures will take place on UF Gainesville campus.

L’uccello giardiniere; la casa come museo di sé – conference by Lucio Valerio Barbera in Vicenza, Palazzo Da Porto Palladio Museum

Standard

Casa-di-Augusto-stadio-finale-buona-05-200L’uccello giardiniere; la casa come museo di sé

Conference by Lucio Valerio Barbera

I maschi di una famiglia di uccelli dal nome astruso, quasi impronunciabile, Ptilonorhynchidae, appartenenti all’ordine dei passeriformi, nel periodo degli amori costruiscono il proprio nido in forma di elaborata struttura architettonica, a volte assolutamente straordinaria, e attorno ad essa realizzano un giardino organizzato in bell’ordine vario, adornandolo di oggetti variopinti e lucenti di grande preziosità visiva, giungendo perfino ad abbellirlo con piccoli oggetti di sasso o legno che essi stessi dipingono con pigmenti naturali per mezzo di uno «pennello» tenuto nel becco. A noi, che ammirati osserviamo le loro opere, sembra che essi dispongano la propria dimora come artistica espressione di sé, allo stesso tempo prezioso recinto ed elaborato ritratto della propria identità. Certamente riflettiamo divertiti a quanto noi somigliamo a quelle delicate creature quando cerchiamo comunque di fare della nostra abitazione una presentazione, in qualche modo nobilitata, della nostra identità, disponendo in bell’ordine vario gli oggetti d’arredo, i quadri, i parati, e quelle cose di famiglia che possano aggiungere un po’ di profondità storica al nostro profilo sociale e culturale. Ma non possiamo evitare che il pensiero corra subito alle tante – innumerevoli – dimore eccezionali che costellano di bellezza, di ricchezza artistica, di messaggi colti e preziosi la storia, le città e la natura e ci tramandano immensi patrimoni artistici assieme alla viva memoria del percorso della civiltà. Spesso quelle dimore le conosciamo perché incontrate come soggetti, tra i tanti, della storia dell’architettura, del paesaggio, della città o come palcoscenico di biografie straordinarie. A volte, invece, le conosciamo poco o per niente affatto, perché riservate agli intenditori di qualche aspetto dell’arte o perché ancora riservate alla stretta cerchia degli amici del padrone di casa. Vale la pena, per una volta, coglierne alcune e ragionarne insieme, eleggendone pochissime tra le innumerevoli, appositamente scelte di dimensioni, importanza e significati molto diversi e appartenenti a culture, luoghi e tempi molto distanti tra loro, legate unicamente dall’essere in primo luogo – o unicamente – dimora, artistica espressione di sé del suo autore, elaborato ritratto della identità dell’uccello giardiniere che le visse o le vive: la casa d’Augusto al Palatino, la villa dell’imperatore Adriano, il Palazzo d’estate della imperatrice Cixi a Pechino, la casa teatro della Città Proibita, la casa di Giulio Romano a Mantova, la casa studio di John Soane a Londra, il Vittoriale di D’Annunzio, la casa di Mario Praz a Roma, la Casa di Paolo Portoghesi a Calcata, la casa studio di Nasci Franzoia a Feltre saranno le tappe principali, ma non le uniche, della conversazione.
