Recensione di I. Daidone, Giancarlo De Carlo. Gli editoriali di Spazio e Società

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


The book tells a “story” that seeks to make people understand the importance and relevance of social architecture, or the re-examination of the contradictory question between space and society. The topicality of Giancarlo De Carlo’s thought, through a careful rereading of the editorials - collected and republished for the first time. Isabella Daidone’s essay retraces the editorial experience of the magazine “Space and Society” with a targeted survey, a recomposed narrative that reveals the web of relations between the magazine and the historical context of the events. The book is a reflection divided into parts which, as in a “rhizomatic” tale - a concept taken from biology, a metaphor for describing by nodes and branches - serves to dialogue with the reader, highlighting places, cities and territories. In the passages that the author reports, it is the centrality of physical space that suggests a specific way of looking, without time, at the real that surrounds us. Presentation by Giuseppe Imbesi, Afterword Marcello Panzarella. Part of the content of the article was published in the magazine “U + D urbanform and design”, n. 14, December 2020. This draft, supplemented by unpublished writings, constitutes an attempt to systematize and synthesize constantly explored themes.
