Really?

On April-May 2014, the magazine “Alfabeta2” released “alfaECOLOGIA”, a special issue where Marjetica Potrč presented the project of a self-organized community garden in the Ubuntu Park, in a village-area of Soweto, Sudafrica. Here some questionable statements: “Community gardens represent a new model of public space: they are indeed collectively organized … Part of their success is tied to the failure of existing public spaces. … They are political courtroom: a statement of will to be involved and to affect decisions at neighborhood level by those who are devoted to them…. Community gardens are laboratories of human coexistence, where you can think outside the box … marking out the repositioning from the industrial city towards a new culture of living.”

Cavallerizza Reale. An opportunity for cities.

Cavallerizza Reale’ clock is stuck at 14.45. This is a place where time stopped few years ago, actually, and when Assemblea Cavallerizza 14.45 went in to occupy it they started imagining that time could still run on here. This is a not partitic organisation composed by Turin’ citizens, students, artists, actors, associations which few months ago began to meet in order to discuss and imagine a different future for this extraordinary baroque Royal Horse Stables while the City intended to sell it to private investors.
The opportunity the crisis gave it is that is not that easy to find an investor who wants to spend more than 12 million euros in a magnificent but very old and damaged building.

But what happens when public space holds troubles, emotions, conflicts?
