NABA in collaboration with Università degli Studi Roma Tre presents within the University section. Resiliency agencies of the 17th Venice Architecture Biennale at the ITALIAN PAVILLION, the video “CONCINNITÀ”, a reflection revolving around the curatorial proposal by Alessandro Melis about resilient communities, exploring the key role of universities into education to resilience as a local answer to global challenges.
“CONCINNITÀ” looks at the condition of the contemporary city and the challenges that arise today in order to be able to rethink it according to a different relationship with the existing, where everything becomes heritage, now. On the territories, constellations of cities and non-cities that translate the urban everywhere. New dimensions of habitability, rooted in the rethinking of the relationship between times and ways of being on Earth. Explorations across the urban ocean generates resilient communities because they are capable of acting and re-inhabiting legacies by transforming them. The advance of the city and then its dissolution in the territory, in fact, suggest ways of observing the contradictions of the present where the imagination creates unexpected places and relationships. Re-enchant the existing with bodies immersed in urban realities that encounter "orphan objects", arranging themselves to be "affected" and reinvented. In these accumulations, we find ourselves involved with things and with others, and places are measured by the density of immersion of those who participate in this process. The lengthening of the shadows on the roughness of the ground announces perpetual upheavals, decay and daily rebirths, whose plastic power lies in the cure.
The project is born from the didactic and research activity of young researchers of the Università degli Studi Roma TRE’s Architecture Department, guided by Giovanni Caudo and coordinated by Federica Fava. The video was realised by the students of NABA BA in Media Design and Multimedia Arts, under the supervision of Marianna Schivardi, lecturer of the same BA and with the project coordination of Silvia Simoncelli, Head of Education of NABA Rome’s campus, as well as Vincenzo Cuccia’s, Course Leader of the BA in Media Design and Multimedia Arts.
