On Thursday 21st July at 2 p.m. IED Torino is planning an online meeting for everybody (you just have to register), organized by Master in Smart Buildings and Sustainable Design.

The webinar will be leaded by the Master Director, Cesare Griffa, with two students that are actually attending the course.

The meeting will pivot around the Predicting a Sustainable Future theme, and it will be completely in English.

In the next future, the world population and the planet’s temperature will dramatically grow, while our fossil sources will decrease. There will be more and more need of energy and food, together with the need of reducing green-gases emissions. The designer has a great responsibility for generations to come: he has to face this challenge in a creative way, which means transforming this problems into source to project a sustainable future.

 

The webinar is transmitted online and it lasts about one hour.

835 sport events, both national and international, 16   paralympic games, 248 cultural events, 15,500 free motor activities. More than 50,000 children are involved in the projects, and there are over 55,000 awards. 20 million ratings in the RAI programs. These are the figures registered in a year of sport in Turin.

It was registered by OMERO – Centro interdipartimentale dell’Università di Torino (Olympics and Mega Events Research Observatory), during a research for Assessorato allo sport of Turin City Hall. Such figures were presented at Cavallerizza Reale during the meeting named “La città e lo sport. Torino 2015 e oltre – Mappe, pratiche, immagini, ricadute economiche, pubblico (City and sport. Turin 2015 and over – Maps, pictures, economic crisis, public)”.

 

The research analyzes relations between sport, spaces and land. It also makes a map related to sport (and its plants), analyzing the relations between sport, land and the relation between sport and the image of the city, going through the economic crisis that affected Turin in 2015, together with the results of surveys.

 

“The research was focused on the profits gained by the city, and on how important they have been after Turin 2015. What happened is the so-called leverage effect: 600,000 € for the City Hall. 3.5 million € were spent on lands and territory.” Explained Professor Piervincenzo Bondonio, from Culture, Politics and Society Department at Università di Torino.

 

The work made by Velasco Virali is coming in the Rectorate’s yard at Università di Torino. It will remain there until November.

Two naked men carrying a long shining ship, upside-down on the shoulders, keeping their heads inside, in Università di Torino’s rectorate.

 

This is a symbolic dialogue, a perfect dialogue between the sculpture and the University’s yard. The aim is focusing on the relation between the society and its path, supported and lightened by culture.

”This work is often seen as a representation of the immigration social problem. Actually is something different: an insecurity moment, something that is about to happen, that must happen and that will happen for everybody. It’s a moment in which your life inevitably changes, going from cheerfulness to responsibility. It can be a social, economic, or political responsibility. I didn’t think of a ship laying over the bodies of people carrying it, but of a house. The outline of this sculpture is a man drawing a tent, a house, a roof. The roof is the horizon that limits him.”
