Obiettivi

Organizzare e condurre una summer school internazionale di 10 giorni in merito allo spazio pubblico nella città. Il programma delle lezioni e degli incontri è stato costruito al fine di avere un punto di vista eterogeneo intorno al tema dello spazio pubblico. Tempi, luoghi, argomenti e persone sono stati scelti al fine di offrire agli studenti un’esperienza accademica, progettuale, pratica e ludica vasta e irripetibile.

Descrizione

La Summer School internazionale organizzata da Izmo, svoltasi a Torino dal 5 al 14 settembre 2011, ha avuto come tema lo spazio pubblico.Le lezioni (interamente in lingua inglese) sono state tenute da professori del Politecnico di Torino, dell’Università del Piemonte Orientale e della St. John International University, oltre che da membri di Izmo, ed hanno affrontato tematiche connesse allo spazio pubblico. Inoltre, l’offerta formativa è stata arricchita da una serie di incontri con esperti e professionisti: momenti informali durante i quali gli studenti hanno avuto modo di interagire e confrontarsi con chi, come Izmo, opera sullo spazio pubblico.

Dopo questa fase, gli studenti hanno avuto modo di sperimentare direttamente alcune metodologie di ricerca sul campo (deriva urbana; urban missions; interviste), che gli hanno consentito di osservare ed entrare in contatto con il territorio e i suoi abitanti.

Al termine del ciclo di lezioni, i partecipanti sono intervenuti concretamente sullo spazio pubblico, progettando e realizzando tre installazioni, all’interno di un progetto complessivo di riqualificazione della Circoscrizione 7 di Torino. I tre gruppi, composti da tre studenti ciascuno, hanno avuto a disposizione un budget di 150 euro per l’acquisto dei materiali, mentre Izmo ha fornito gli attrezzi da lavoro necessari e ha affiancato gli studenti in ogni fase di lavoro.

Metodi e linguaggi

  • lezioni frontali e talks
  • ricerca sul campo
  • analisi dei materiali raccolti
  • rielaborazione dei dati
  • progettazione e realizzazione delle installazioni nello spazio pubblico

Conclusioni

Gli studenti hanno apprezzato molto l’esperienza della summer school, le lezioni e i talk, la fase di progettazione e realizzazione sul campo. È stata per tutti un’occasione per sperimentare diversi punti di vista sullo spazio pubblico (a livello accademico, sociale, culturale ed esperienziale); visitare e vivere la città fino a mischiarsi con i suoi abitanti durante il lavoro in piazza.

Per quanto concerne l’organizzazione dei tempi, è stato valutato positivamente dagli studenti il numero giorni con il weekend di mezzo. Tuttavia all’interno delle singole giornate, il carico di attività e di appuntamenti ha affaticato sia gli studenti sia gli stessi membri di Izmo, soprattutto in occasione dei talk serali. Infine alcuni studenti avrebbero apprezzato un ulteriore momento di riflessione e scambio a conclusione della summer school.

Per quanto riguarda le installazioni nello spazio pubblico, queste sono state largamente apprezzate dai cittadini, soprattutto durante la fase di realizzazione. Infatti gli abitanti hanno partecipato in modo interessato ed hanno contribuito alla realizzazione delle opere. Nonostante ciò, dopo una settimana dalla realizzazione, le due installazioni sonore sono state rimosse/rubate. Il sopravvissuto totem interattivo pare non incontri più l’interesse e della curiosità iniziale. I cittadini si sono lamentati e rammaricati della situazione, in quanto, nonostante la qualità delle opere, la temporanea rivitalizzazione e la presenza sul territorio, le installazioni sono state rimosse da individui incuranti.

Title:  Izmo Summer School

Date: September 5th – 14th, 2011
Location: Turin, Italy
In collaboration with: Circoscrizione 7 Torino, Politecnico di Torino Second School of Architecture, St. John International University
Team: Alessandro Grella, Alberto Rudellat, Marta Saccocci, Giulia Carlone, Giulia Marra, Pasquale Onofrio, Gianluca Sabena, Marco Menonna, Elena Candelari, Ianira Vassallo, Giuseppe Vinci, Lauren Shultz, Elena Vitti
Keywords: workshop, lecture, design, public space, public art, participation, urban regeneration

Objectives

Organize and manage a 10 day international summer school on public space in the city. The program courses and the talks have been planned with the aim to collect a broad and heterogeneous view on the topic. People, places and subjects have been selected to offer the students an intensive academic experience and also a challenging design practice in a mix of learning, doing and enjoying.

Description

The International Summer School organized by Izmo from September 5th to 14th 2011 proposed its theme as the public space.
The lectures (all in English language) held by professors from the Politecnico di Torino, the Università del Piemonte Orientale, St. John International University and Izmo’s members, dealt with topics and issues connected to the public space theme from different and complementary points of view. To enhance the didactic experience, some talks with experts and professionals were organized as informal sessions in which students had the possibility to interact and dialogue with those who work on the public space, as does Izmo. Passing from learning to doing, the students had the opportunity to put into practice some research methodologies directly in the field (urban drift, urban missions, interviews) and therefore observe and interact with the site and its inhabitants in both a traditional and unusual way. After this step, the students divided into three groups of three and through a design session realized three different installations directly in the public space (Piazza Alimonda site) as a part of a bigger program of the Circoscrizione 7 requalification. For the installation each group received 150 euros to buy the materials needed to realize the project. In this stage, Izmo provided tools and machinery to allow students work directly on the square and help they to develop and realize their project.

Methods and languages

  • lecture
  • research in the field
  • analysis of materials gathered
  • data review
  • design and installation in the public space

Conclusions

The students appreciated the whole experience: the lessons and talks, the design session and the practical stage of the project realization in the field. It was an opportunity for all to learn and exchange knowledge on the contemporary public space at an academic, social, cultural and practical level as well as visiting and experiencing the city by mingling with its inhabitants during the practical work on the square.

In reference to time table organization, the students positively valued the numbers of days dedicated to the projects with a weekend break in the middle. During the weekdays there were so many activities to do that this may have exhausted the students and the Izmo team a bit more than necessary, especially during the evening talks. Finally some students appreciated a dedicated moment of reflection and feedback exchange at the end of the summer school.

The installations created by the students were truly appreciated by the citizens, especially during the realization stage. In fact the citizens were interested enough to help the students during the realization stage by participating in the projects. Despite this interest, after a week, the two sound installations were removed or stolen and the interest in the interactive totem seemed to not go beyond the initial curiosity. The citizens complained and expressed regret about the situation, because despite the quality of the works, the installations had been removed by careless individuals.

Abstract

Izmo has organized an International Summer School in Torino from September 5th to 14th 2011 which has the public space as its theme.
The lectures will be taught by professors of the Politecnico di Torino, University of Eastern Piedmont and St. John International University, as well as Izmo’s members, and will focus on the topics directly and indirectly related to public space. Its aim is to provide insights in a broad and multidisciplinary manner.
After the lectures and the design studio, participants will be given the opportunity to work directly in the public space. Each student will be given a budget to carry out the installation. During the workshop phases —design and realization— participants will be constantly mentored by Izmo.
Finally, the training will be enriched by a series of meetings with experts and professionals: informal moments during which students will have the opportunity to interact and engage with those working in the public space, such as Izmo.
The course is aimed at students, graduates, professionals and anyone interested in the issue of public space and urban regeneration. Participants of the Summer School will be awarded 3 credits, recognized by the Politecnico di Torino or by the St. John International University, transferable to any other university (with ECTS in Europe).
In addition, Izmo will provide the logistical references for issues regarding housing, transportation and tourism.

Design Studio and Installation

Alongside the theoretical in-classroom portion, the Summer School will give its participants concrete ways to plan and realize installations in the public space.  Already from Day 2 the students will begin to experiment with qualitative research methodologies in the field (urban drift; urban missions; Q&A sessions), which will allow them to observe then enter into contact with the public space (insert link). Students will have the opportunity to realize an installation and in this way confront the territory and its inhabitants.

The next day the participants will be divided into several work groups, the information gathered will be analyzed in the classroom followed by the first design studio session after which each group will present the results they’ve obtained until that moment then form the first project hypotheses.  During the 4th and 5th day, two design studio sessions will take place in which the students will define in a detailed manner the proposed intervention in Piazza Alimonda.  In the course of the phases of field research, the design studio workshop and the realization of the intervention, the participants will be constantly under supervision, mentored and assisted by members of Izmo.  The last three days will be dedicated to the realization and installation of the project.

Each student will have at his or her disposition a budget of 50 euro for the acquisition of materials, which Izmo will provide the tools necessary to work.  Each work group will be able to realize a project of their own design and the overall redefinition of the public space will be divided and coordinated between the groups through a series of collective revisions to the proposed installation.

At the end of the work process, the installations will be presented to the public during an afternoon dedicated to the unveiling of the newly redefined spaces.

Talks and Special Guests

19:00 – Tuesday, September 6

SUMISURA. resources for the environment and the city

Through public space

Public space is not always where you expect it to be.
Public space is not public because of its ownership status but because of the use people give to it.
Spontaneous actions define and redefine urban spaces every day, going beyond their shape and structure and the function for which they were built.
A city in which people use public spaces and commit themselves to make it more liveable, is an interesting city, a welcoming city, one in which quality of life and mutual trust grow higher.
Sumisura’s work focuses on public space as the place and the engine for positive urban transformations: they research practices, analyze processes and set up projects to enhance spontaneous uses and actions.

SUMISURA is a cooperative
valente_pelfinithat works on urban regeneration, local development and revitalization. The talk will be held by the partners:
Raffaella Valente graduated in Architecture in 2005 at Politecnico di Torino.  She worked from 2005 till 2008 in the landascape planning studio Signes, in Paris. In 2008 she finished her DSA in Architecture et Projet Urbain in Ecole Nazionale Supérieure d’Architecture de Paris la Villette. In 2011 she completed her PhD in Spatial Planning and Local Development at Politecnico di Torino with a thesis on public space in urban regenaration projects.
Marina Pelfini, architect, expert in community planning and urban regeneration projects. She works in setting up and implementing projects for the physical, social and economic upgrading and development of the local environment. At present she works for Amapola, focusing on urban security through environmental design, and for Sumisura.

a.titolo

situa.to

Situa.to is a group of 30 young people from different backgrounds (art, architecture, design, humanities and social sciences) researching the city and its transformations to bring out new aspects, to discover potential problems and experimental design practices intended for the social and cultural dimensions of urban public spaces. Situa.to in the initial phase has involved young people in a structured path to higher education in workshops, lectures and design studios held by architects, experts in the social sciences and philosophy, and professionals active in the field of literature, theater, design, and music. 
After the training phase, participants explored the metropolitan area with the intent to identify the needs and potential sites, as well as the perception that the residents have of the area. From the research conducted through surveys, archival evidence, meetings with residents and associations emerged design ideas for cultural and artistic intervention in the public space to be developed with residents and other stakeholders in the territory (associations, territorial administration, etc.). 
From 30 design hypotheses that emerged with the research, 10 projects have been developed on the basis of their sustainability and feasibility.  Small groups of participants formed that then developed an operational framework and acted in several neighborhoods as “activators” who represented the desire for action by the residents. Situa.to is a project still in progress that aims to foster the development of active citizenship and self-potential projects.

Walter Nicolino

Augmented and responsive urban spaces

The digital revolution did not end up killing our cities, as predicted during the nineties, but neither did it leave them unaffected. A layer of networked digital elements has blanketed our environment, blending bits and atoms together in a seamless way.
Sensors, cameras and microcontrollers are used ever more extensively to manage city infrastructure, optimize transportation, monitor the environment and run security applications.
This feedback loop of digital sensing and processing can begin to influence various complex and dynamic aspects of the city, improving the economic, social and environmental sustainability of the places we inhabit.
The implications for urban spaces and architectural aesthetics are interesting: for several years architecture has attempted to mimic in formal terms the rapid flow of digital information, now we have the chance to create augmented and responsive spaces using citizens themselves as intelligent actuators.

Walter Nicolino (born 1975),
nicolinofounder and partner of the office carlorattiassociati – walter nicolino & carlo ratti, is an architect practicing in Turin.
He graduated from the Politecnico di Torino in 2003, with an urban design project awarded with Honorable Mention in the Archiprix 2003 – World’s Best Graduation Projects.
Involved in several projects of the MIT Senseable City Lab, he is often invited as visiting lecturer to numerous Universities and cultural institutions.
His practice in Turin focuses on the encounter between digital technology and architecture as one of its main research topics.
The firm’s works has been featured in numerous exhibitions, including the Venice Architecture Biennale in 2004, 2006 and 2010; the “Compendium Exhibition” at the Royal Institute of British Architects in London; Beyond Media, the festival of digital architecture in Florence; Digital_Minimal, an exhibition at the MIT Museum in Cambridge (MA), and KMZERO11 in Turin.
Among Walter’s other competitions and awards are the Honorable Mention for Europan 7; the Second Prize for a community center in the city of Jurmala, Latvia and the selection, together with an international team of artist and designers, for the final phase of the competition for the new tower landmark to be placed on the site of the London 2012 Olympic Games.
Walter Nicolino, together with Carlo Ratti, was recently awarded Second Prize in the first edition of the Renzo Piano Foundation Award.

This campus is located in Valentino Park and houses the First and Second Schools of Architecture. Valentino Park extends along the left bank of the river Po at the foot of the hills, between the King Umberto I and Princess Isabella bridges. It is very close to the center of town, and about one kilometer from the Porta Nuova main railway station.
The present Valentino palace of the Savoy dynasty derives from various projectural phases which began in the mid-1500s. After a complex series of changes of owners, it was given by Duke Carlo Emanuele I to his daughter-in-law, young Cristina di Francia – who, in 1621, commissioned radical structural changes to the riverside residence, in conformity with the French “pavillon-système” (a project by Carlo di Castellamonte, from 1621 to1641). This resulted in the definition of the towers on the river side, the wings, the roofs “in the French style”. The anterior towers and the original connecting wings are the work of Amadeo di Castellamonte (from 1641).  The completion of the project is testified to in the two incisions of the Theatrum Sabaudiae in 1682. In the 1700s, the palace had already lost its significance as a noble “country” residence. Reconstruction and amplification of the connecting wings was undertaken in order to host the Industrial Exposition of 1858; then in 1859 the building was ceded to the “Regia Scuola di Applicazione per gli Ingegneri” and is now property of the Politecnico.Castello del Valentino

alimonda_locations_web Piazza AlimondaDuring their urban exploration, the students will pass through the Aurora quarter and neighboring piazza Alimonda. The information gathered will then be analyzed and construct the basis upon which the installation project will be elaborated.
The piazza is surrounded by trees with a playground on one side and a vast open space on the other side. The Circoscrizione 7 is interested in redefining and restoring the balance of the public space by endowing it with new installations and structures for children and families residing in this neighborhood.Piazza Alimonda

Field Trip

envipark_trip Dora Park and Environment Park
The first leg of the field trip will be Dora Park and Environment Park. Students will go through the transformation zone that extends north of Turin.
In the past the area was characterized by a large industrial center straddling the River Dora. Since the early ’90s, Environment Park has begun the process of redefining itself. Environment Park was established in 1996 and represents a unique example of science and technology parks in Europe for having been able to combine technological innovation and eco-efficiency.
The redevelopment project involves the establishment of a broad mix of functions – including residences, commercial spaces, offices, laboratories, research centers and production centers and spaces for recreational activities – as well as the restoration and conversion of adequate spaces for producing advanced works, in the prestige buildings once occupied by the Officine Savigliano and the Paracchi Society.
An important element of the transformation of the area concerns the construction of large infrastructure projects that would redefine the viability of the area and its connection with the rest of the city.
Finally Dora Park is in the heart of the great transformation with its 456,000 square meters (designed by Peter Latz) that make up one of the largest green areas in Turin. The park, which is built on an area that was once occupied by large manufacturing plants and the natural environments, integrates existing structures from the industrial past of the area.  It is made up of significant elements that weren’t demolished including the cooling tower of Michelin and the great stripping structure and the steel boiler of Fiat.
spina_trip Spina 3 and 4
On a private bus the students will pass through the “Spina Centrale”: a huge panoramic boulevard which crosses the city north to south, created as a cover for underground railway.
The boulevard is an element of suturing between the neighbourhoods in the past divided by the railway. Today the street has also become a space for contemporary artworks, where some precious works can be admired, like the Fountains-Igloo by Mario Merz, the Opera per Torino by Per Kirkeby and the Albero Giardino by Giuseppe Pennone.
In addition to the Spina, many spaces dedicated to contemporary art have been created in the dismantled factories surrounding the city, like the Foundation Sandretto Re Rebaudengo and Foundation Merz. Some further projects are in the process of being staged, which will present works by prestigious artists the likes of Jan Kounellis, Giulio Paolini, Michelangelo Pistoletto.
The tour will reach also the OGR – Officine Grandi Riparazioni: a masterpiece of industrial architecture in the heart of Turin. These immense workshops were opened at the end of the 19th century in order to construct and maintain the railway locomotives and carriages, becoming a spur to urban development and an important lynchpin of the city’s history. On 2011 OGR is one of the two centers for celebrations of the 150th Anniversary of the Unification of Italy.
lingotto_trip Former Wholesale Market, Lingotto and Italia ’61 Park
Students will be accompanied to the south of Turin, riding along the railroad passing through some of the landmarks of the city’s industrial past. Beginning with MOI: the former Wholesale Market transformed to host events during the Olympic Games of 2006 then continuing to walk under the big red arch until reaching Lingotto and its roof.
Lingotto was one of the main offices of the Fiat. Its construction dates back to 1916 and is characterized by a formal organization instrumental in the production of cars, as evidenced by the futuristic test track on the roof. Once industrial production ceased, the factory has undergone a long process of restructuring (by Renzo Piano) and is now a big center with multipurpose exhibition spaces, offices, a conference center, an auditorium, shops, hotels and it houses the Department of Automotive Engineering.
On the other side of this district we will reach the Automobile Museum, originally a symbol of the industrial development of the city in 1960 and now completely refurbished by the recent restoration by Cino Zucchi, and the Italy ’61 area (a site of many events held for the centenary of the first Unification of Italy) with buildings such as the Pala Vela (former Exhibition Hall with its characteristic “sailing” roof, restored to host the 2006 Olympics skating competitions) and the Palazzo del Lavoro (engineering masterpiece by Pier Luigi Nervi whose future use is now the subject of many discussions).

Insurance

Izmo Summer School does not provide any insurance for students. Please make sure that you have your own travel insurance when you arrive in Italy.

↑ top

Visa and Passport

Accordingly, anyone entering Italy from within the Schengen area needs only a valid passport or some other official document issued for travelling purposes.

Students coming from outside of the Schengen area will need a passport and possibly also a visa.
Do you need a Visa?
Foreigners entering Italy for periods not to exceed 90 days, pursuant to Law no. 68/2007, whether or not subject to visa requirements, do not need to apply for a sojourn permit.
The sojourn permit has been replaced by a declaration of presence on Italian soil.
Only this sojourn permit (‘permesso di soggiorno’), which is issued for the reason and for the period indicated on the visa, authorises an alien to sojourn in Italy.
Aliens coming from countries that do not apply the Schengen Convention the obligation to make a declaration of presence is satisfied through application of the USV sticker on the travel document at the moment of border control.
Aliens from countries that apply the Schengen Convention are required, on the other hand, to file a declaration of presence within 8 days of arrival with the police headquarters (“Questura”) of the province in which he/she is staying, using the proper form.
For those staying in hotels and other reception facilities, the declaration of presence is handled by the reception facility upon check-in, a copy of which is supplied to the guest to be displayed to authorities upon eventual request.

How to come and to move in Torino

Situated in the North-West of the country, it is just about 100km from Milan, the Ligurian sea and the French border: all of which makes Turin the “one hour city”, readily accessed and handy for the mountains, lakes, sea and the rest of Italy. Fast trains mean that Milan is just an hour away, Paris five hours and then, from December 2009, Piedmont’s chief city will form part of the High-Speed track taking in Turin-Milan-Naples-Salerno, thus becoming even closer to Italy’s south.

Turin’s International Airport has a daily connection with the main cities of Italy and Europe and lays on a good transport service to the town centre, both by bus, coach (Sadem) and train, as well as taxis of course.

GTT – Gruppo Torinese Trasporti -runs Turin’s urban transport service with an efficient network of buses, trams, railways (the city rail link is currently under construction and will further improve mobility in the province) and a futuristic, automatic underground line, partially opened for the Winter Olympics of 2006 and currently due to be completed by 2011. The service is generally operative from early morning (about 5am) until midnight. Tickets cost € 1 or € 3.50 for a Day Pass, but all Torino+Piemonte Card holders travel free on GTT transports. For those reaching the city by car, the park & ride system allows visitors to leave the car in the outer areas of town close to the main communication routes and then take the faster, more relaxing public transport to get to the centre.
http://www.5t.torino.ithttp://www.metrotorino.it

The 160km of reserved paths, 40km of which within the urban parks make “green” Turin one of the best cities for cycling and therefore the most eco-friendly in Italy.
Cycle racks are dotted around strategic points of the city for parking bikes, while the bike hire service (half price for Torino+Piemonte Card holders) means that tourists too can enjoy the cycle system and visit the city in a ‘sustainable’ way. One of the classic trails recommended is along the Po and Dora Riparia rivers which not only are the perfect places for peacefully enjoying delightful views but above all for discovering just how closely connected Turin is with its waterways and its mountains and hills.

Vedere lontano

gallipoli_puglia

Qualcuno si lamenta sempre del mal tempo. Il vento gelido da nord che taglia la faccia e penetra nelle ossa.

Qui a Gallipoli è normale. Il mare si increspa, l’aria si congela, ma il lato positivo c’è. Il sole splende, l’aria tersa fa brillare le cose e fa vedere quello che rientra un po’ nel mito locale.

Diciamo che sono cresciuta con la leggenda: sai, dopo una giornata di tramontana si vede la Calabria.

Ovviamente mai vista. E’ un mito, una fesseria.

Fino a ieri.

Ero come al solito ad “errare” a Gallipoli (vedi titolo della mia tesi…). Mi fermo a guardare l’orizzonte. Un tramonto magnifico.

Un’infinità di sfumatore di rosso e arancione, che sprofondano nel blu profondo del mare. E al di là?

Le montagne della Calabria.


io l’ho sempre detto che si vedeva…comunque anche in Calabria gira la stessa voce sulla visione mitica della Puglia
