U+D n.20 TERRITORIO E CITTA’ – Editoriale

 Leggere il territorio.
Prendersi cura del territorio

Giuseppe Strappa

Una riflessione responsabile sulla trasformazione della nozione di territorio, credo, dovrebbe oggi tener conto due condizioni fondamentali.
La prima è la percezione sincronica che abbiamo del mondo costruito, in un contesto dominato dal presente. Percorsi, insediamenti, aree produttive, fanno tutti parte di uno stesso ambiente contemporaneo, le cui ragioni formative sembrano appartenere a un insieme di problemi distanti dalla vita reale. In questa compresenza di tutte le cose, le città coesistono, indistinte, col loro hinterland, col territorio che le circonda e che dovrebbe spiegarle, con le infrastrutture che le annodano.
Sulla constatazione che città e territorio siano, di fatto, la stessa cosa si è sviluppata un’intera letteratura, almeno a partire dall’idea proposta da La città in estensione di Giuseppe Samonà (1976). Punto di vista allora senz’altro utile, ma oggi inattuale per non tener conto della progressiva urbanizzazione di ogni area del nostro pianeta (con le relative polarizzazioni e marginalizzazioni) che forse è la vera chiave di lettura di un fenomeno di concentrazione che sembra contraddire i miti della delocalizzazione in un nuovo universo digitale.
Soprattutto, questa nuova visione sincronica della realtà costruita sembra del tutto estranea alla lettura del divenire storico del territorio. Lettura, ritengo, fondamentale e non eludibile, a partire dalla considerazione elementare che ogni fenomeno si spiega con la sua origine e trasformazione: prima l’uomo si
muove, cammina, migra, traversa crinali e fondovalle di luoghi dei quali acquista coscienza attraverso la reiterazione dei percorsi, quindi si ferma, stabilisce le aree di pertinenza di una comunità (aree culturali) e costruisce gli insediamenti.

Sotto la spinta di un’ urbanizzazione crescente, sono stati cancellati i confini tra la città e l’area vasta che ad essa fa riferimento, stabilendo inediti legami tra paesaggi naturali, urbani e metropolitani . Nella condizione contemporanea, questi legami sono leggibili come complessa rete di relazioni fisiche, (naturali e antropiche), e immateriali che hanno perso i tradizionali caratteri di organicità del territorio storico
La città contemporanea va ormai pensata all’interno di un nuovo paradigma dinamico: come momento di provvisorio equilibrio nel divenire d i parti e sezioni di scambio che ne ridefiniscono costantemente l’ assetto morfologico.
Il territorio, a sua volta, è oggi costellato d i piccoli centri che stanno affrontando a volte fasi di abbandono, ma anche di una inedita trasformazione e nuovi sviluppi nel rapporto tra il paesaggio agrario e ciò che resta del paesaggio naturale, facendo pensare a una possibile, originale organicità futura……

URBAN MORPHOLOGY COURSE – GIUSEPPE STRAPPA – SAPIENZA – 2021-22

The lecture will present the formation and transformation process of the built environment, at territorial scale, in the Ouled Nail and Djebel Amour mounts, following the principle of oganicity such as developed in the Muratorian thought. This reading makes it possible to distinguish periods of relative stability, during which the territorial organism was endowed with all the values of the type, from periods of imbalance induced by the various waves of colonization.

UNIVERSITA’ DEGLI STUDI DI ROMA “LA SAPIENZA”
FACOLTÀ DI ARCHITETTURA

COURSE IN URBAN MORPHOLOGY 2021/2022

prof. Giuseppe Strappa

arch. Anna Rita Donatella Amato

arch. Francesca De Rosa

arch. Huimin Ji

arch. Alessandra Pusceddu

GOALS

The course aims to teach a method of reading the built landscape through the knowledge of the forming processes common to urban fabrics and buildings. The basic notions of organism and process will be used to read the built landscape.

The main purpose of the typological study proposed by the course is the identification of the characters of the built environment and the recognition of the  formation and transformation processes , having as ultimate goal the architectural design.

COURSE STRUCTURE

The course will consist of:

  1. a series of lectures (see schedule)aiming to provide the student, through the morphological / processual method, with the tools to read the built environment, historical and contemporary, having the architectural design as its goal.
  2. a series of independent lectures given by external professors or experts, on complementary subjects. The purpose of these lectures is to give a general idea of the contemporary studies on urban form through the knowledge of methods different from those followed by the course. Some re-design exercises will be proposed to apply the concepts learned.
  3. “morphological walks” eventually organized in small groups to examine the fabrics and buildings under study. The participation and writing of a short report entitles the student of Ar course to 2 credits.

EXAMINATION

Students will be evaluated through an oral test.

The student will be free to choose one of the following forms of exam:

1. presentation of the work carried out during the course on one of the themes included in the program. The student’s work will be followed periodically by the teachers and may also contain a simple project proposal as an example of the theoretical study.

2. Discussion on one of the theoretical topics listed in the course program.

The students will also be free to present all the works they consider useful for evaluation.
