Duration: 90' without interval
An encounter with Alessandro Balducci, Stefano Boeri, Maria Chiara Pastore and Cino Zucchi, architects and urban planners at the Politecnico di Milano. For more than a year, the pandemic has paralysed our experience of the city. A way of life that has developed over centuries of urban civilisation, and which no-one ever imagined could be threatened so gravely. We have been forced to radically change our way of living, of working, of learning and of relating with each other. This paralysis has forced us to realise that an alternative world is possible, in terms of the organisation of when and where we work, in a form of mobility free of congestion and pollution, in an alternative relationship with nature, and in the re-appropriation of public space.
Now that we are, perhaps, finally emerging from this situation, do we really want to go back to how things were before? What were we like before the pandemic? Can we consider capitalising on recent experiences in order to move forward, towards a city capable of slowing its pace, modifying that seemed to be set in stone, embracing more expansive areas and seeking to give a true sense to sustainability.
