HISTORY, CULTURE, HERITAGE

GENOA, POLYTECHNIC SCHOOL-ARCHITECTURE, 4-5 JUNE 2018

We witness today a huge flow of foreigners pouring into a city that barely contains them. They are mostly homeless people: they come from all over the world, driven by ambition, need of work, their role of ambassadors; some urged by their vices, others by the desire to study; some drawn by the shows, others by the chance of intertwining relationships or under the weight of misfortune… They rush all together, having left their homes, hoping to find an opportunity in this city which is the capital of the whole world but not theirs.

Those words have been written by Seneca about two thousand years ago, commenting the abnormal growth of the city of Rome. Seemingly, they look very appropriate to describe some of the typical phenomena of today’s world. Nevertheless, almost everything has changed since ancient times: there has been the affirmation of monotheism and the split of the Mediterranean world; the unexpected discovery of new lands and their systematic exploitation; the industrial revolution and the end (?) of colonialism; the Reformation, the Declaration of Human Rights, the Second World War… The very nature of cities in the last few centuries has profoundly changed too, both in their internal structure and in their relations with the regional, national and international context. Center- periphery relations, the economic fabric and the networks of social integration, culture gaps and the patterns of sociability: these are only some among the many fields in which scale variations over the centuries have produced diverse and somehow heterogeneous urban landscapes. Also, the concepts of citizenship, ‘race’, ethnicity have been written and rewritten several times. Continuer la lecture de Multi-Ethnic Cities in the Mediterranean World. History, Culture, Heritage
