Seminario / Bergamo, ex-carcere di Santa Agata 13 Ottobre 2017 / h. 9.30 - 19.00 see The symposium draws on the assumption that the remains of former prisons constitute a difficult and neglected heritage, which is often ignored in order to remove it, at least metaphorically, whenever preservation laws, economical consideration, or even architectural and urban contexts, did not permit to do so physically.
The idea at the basis of this study day is that former prisons may be regarded as a heritage, which is often forgotten or invisible to a wider public but that bears unexploited historical, social architectural and cultural values. By analysing selected emblematic examples of adaptive interventions on former prisons and focusing on design based strategies and approaches to their reuse, it will expand upon the chances and challenges posed by the urgent question of how to preserve and valorise this overlooked architectural heritage.
