Planum 6.2008 The Welfare Space in Europe

23 June 2008 – 24 June 2008

The Welfare Space in Europe

Venice, Italy
University IUAV of Venice Room A Palazzo Badoer, S. Polo 2468

23-24 June 2008

This seminar deals with the spaces of welfare, which were constructed starting during the second half of the 20th century in Europe as spaces for socialization and collective activities, services and infrastructure. Despite their many limitations, these spaces aimed at guaranteeing comfort, health and safety to the city, while also giving a spatial dimension to welfare state policies. To work on this topic with the broadened perspective of Europe is deemed urgent for three distinct reasons: - because the arrangement of infrastructure and services, the widespread presence of these public spaces constitute one of the characteristics of the contemporary European city; - because the spaces of welfare are one of the areas in which citizens can determine their very identity and form the very spirit of citizenship; - because to investigate the space of welfare means to work out the themes of urbanity, of mixitè, and of the construction of urban fabrics that are livable, comfortable, sustainable, healthy and safe.
