From 15 April 2022, TWM Factory and H501 City Lab, in collaboration with CoopCulture, present the exhibition Rescatti di città - Urban Transizioni in Rome at Palazzo Merulana. The project, now in its second edition, continues the work already outlined in 2020, stimulating discussion and comparison on urban regeneration in Rome through the themes of the various ecological, digital and cultural transitions that the city will have to face following the major upheavals of the our time.
Practices and projects, data and installations: a multidisciplinary exhibition to stimulate a paradigm shift in living and designing the city of tomorrow. A push for a "new ecology of the mind" (Bateson) that emphasizes green interventions, participatory planning, co-creation, inclusive social projects and new cultural practices. A multilevel approach to the dissemination of ideas and visions united by the philosophy of eco-centrism, necessary to rethink the contemporary urban development of Rome.
Through two large mappings, in which over 400 points have been inserted between abandoned and regenerated places and about 300 centers of new cultural production in Rome, Riscatti di Città aims to propose alternatives to the current situations of abandonment or necessity, presenting visions , ideas, projects and initiatives that restore value to the territory. In this research, Infographics and Dataviz represent fundamental tools for returning the results of the research to the public in a readable and interactive way.
