Artistic-architectural projects are presented in which art is considered as an integral part of the redevelopment and maintenance of public space. The title Luoghi in-Raddoppio is a reference to works by Paolo Ferrari, an artist-scientist, in places for work and culture and, in co-operation with Architettura delle Convivenze (Architecture for Living Together), in social projects for the self-construction of the environment-community. They represent experiences in the planning of public spaces in which art constitutes an element which transforms places. The art works presented in Luoghi in-Raddoppio constitute the basis not only for the aesthetic values but also the cultural and social values which the planning of public spaces brings to a city, in the assumption that art can make a significant contribution to habitability and more generally to the quality of urban life.
Keywords: Luoghi in-Raddoppio; Paolo Ferrari; social art.
