There is a week’s time left in order to enrol on the Summer School “Sicilia coast to coast: camminare in territori vulnerabili” (Summer School “Sicilia coast to coast: walking in vulnerable areas”).
The initiative will bring to Sicily, in the period from 19th to 29th August 2018, 30 students and researchers for a fascinating walking tour. The itinerary, from Mazara del Vallo to Palermo, will serve to study closely the areas marked by fires, reflecting on the policies which have been adopted and the consequences of the disaster.
Mazara, Selinunte, Salemi, Segesta, Monreale, Palermo. They are only some of the cities through which students will walk during the coast to coast promoted by the Laboratorio del Cammino (Ldc) (Laboratory of the Walking) a network of students and researchers born in 2017 in the context of didactics and research promoted by the Dipartimento di Scienze, Progetto e Politiche del Territorio (DIST) del Politecnico di Torino (Department of Regional and Urban Studies and Planning).
The Laboratory of the Walking conceives the travel of the pedestrian as a stimulating experience, able to grasp the profiles and the hidden clues of the areas. The pedestrian observes, crosses and listen to the city from below and investigates the daily modalities of attendance and use of the spaces.
In order to participate, please send a mail by Monday 30th April 2018 with your curriculum vitae and a letter of motivation to: firstname.lastname@example.org
