Project leader of the Master in Urban Vision & Architectural Design held a lecture on the modern city guide

On December 13th as part of the 6th convention of SIIAItalian Society of Applied Anthropology, Elisa Poli, project leader of the Master in Urban Vision & Architectural Design held a lecture on the modern city guide.

The lecture titled “It is worth seeing it: the modern city guide as a decoder of the Urban environment” analyzed the travel guide as a tool for social evaluation and design project to reduce and transform physical spaces.

Starting from 16th century when the tradition to use knowledge tools to explore cities began, the lecture will explore the history and the use of this useful tool for travelers.

The travel guide is a factor of selection and reduction: it directs and forces the traveler to take mandatory steps. Its ambiguous nature is evident in its double function: it is an archive of changes in the urban landscape, but it is also an engine of change, due to its enormous influence.
