The concept of the common good is presented through 20 projects conducted by Italian architectural firms. It shows how, in addition to the completed works, the processes themselves can construct spaces and places useful to communities. This reveals architecture’s ability to involve and coordinate the different players in a platform that sees architects taking an active part in promoting ever broader participation, more attentive to the harmonious and inclusive development of society. The exhibition identifies 10 fields of inquiry: legality, health, housing, the environment, education, culture, play, science, nutrition and work.
The narrative of the encounter between architecture and common goods is completed by an array of photographs that give visible form to the idea of the common good in Italy.
