Pietrasanta: The Latest Architecture and News
“The City and the Water” Summer School is organized by the University of Pisa (DESTeC, Long Cycle Master Degree Course in Architectural Engineering), the Visual Art Center of Pietrasanta and the Municipality of Pietrasanta (Tuscany, Italy), with the contribution of the Fondazione Cassa di Risparmio di Lucca. The Summer School, that will take place from 7th to 20th September 2015 at the Visual Arts Center, will see students in Architecture, Engineering, Design, Art Schools and young professionals, working together on the Versilia Area, and in particular on the “Due Laghi” artisan area: a context with a high environmental value and a precious landscape, with several artistic and artisanal laboratories, but actually mined by a strong decay. The project proposals aim to provide indications for the creation of new spaces, in order to make the area more functional and enjoyable for those who live and work there, and for all the future potential visitors, with particular attention to the creation of spaces for cultural and artistic events. After the first design stage, a self-construction laboratory will take place in the “Due Luaghi” area. Students will be guided by the architect Santiago Cirugeda (Recetas urbanas, Seville), Scientific Director of the Summer School, and they will work in close collaboration with the artists and artisans of the "2 Luoghi". The Course Director is Roberto Pierini, President of the Master Degree Course in Architectural Engineering at the University of Pisa. The Summer School, among the guest lecturers, will have Alessandra Capanna, architect and professor at the Faculty of Architecture of Roma La Sapienza University. Open events will be organized also in the Cloister of S. Agostino (Piazza del Duomo, Pietrasanta) and in the “Due Laghi” artisan area (Via Sarzanese 111, Pietrasanta). Inscription deadline: June 30th 2015.
