Le tracce del futuro. Il cuore razionalista di Como
From August 30 to September 9, 2012 has been proposed to the city and citizens a special itinerary of urban strategy that we like to call “The City of Culture”. The landscapes of the city are not dumb. Knowledge, stories and emotions, talk about collective memory. Therefore, listening the past, knowing how to read the traces and signs handed down, we can better shape the future. The architectural and literary route realized calls for a design reflection, whose mover is the rationalist heritage of 900.
This network of sites, which includes the Casa del Fascio (or rather the so-called Rationalism Isle, that is, Casa del Fascio and former ULI), the water front, the gardens, the stadium, the proto-rationalist city, the Gelpi promenade, Villa Olmo, is an extraordinary story of sedimentation able to give answers for open museum for recreational, cognitive sites indispensable for a city that seeks to affirm its identity.
