The material construction of the city

Friday October 24.
14.30 h - open end

Metropoliz, Via Prenestina 913

For centuries Rome has evolved by means of the material and social production of its citizens, in their practices of daily life and in various urban cultures that form the city. This social production responds to various necessities of its territories, from the urgency to satisfy primary needs like housing to the creation of social and cultural spaces. These practices draw a counter-geography of spaces inside the planned city. They are a result of self-organization, of internal and international migration, of acts of resistance to the dynamics of neoliberal development, of relational conflicts and a practice of the right to the city that in the current phase reformulates urban spaces as commons.
