International Summer School

THE CITY AND THE WATER

Architecture, arts and design for the valorisation of the Massaciuccoli lake in Tuscany

Massaciuccoli | August 24th – September 3rd 2017


ORGANIZERS


The International Summer School starts from the awareness of the value of the Massaciuccoli Lake (Massarosa, Lucca) and its territory. As main element of characterization and unification of the micro-sites along its coasts, the Massaciuccoli Lake is the central theme of the International Summer School – 2017 Edition.

The aim is to redesign the natural, archaeological and anthropic contexts, neighbouring with a still partially untouched natural environment. Through a systemic vision, that takes into account environmental, physical, historical, cultural and socio-economic aspects, students will develop five main themes:

The results, in addition to re-appropriation and safeguarding of the natural environment, will be related to the generation of new economic, touristic and manufacturing opportunities, linked to the landscape and to the surrounding territories.

The final products of the International Summer School will stimulate new possibilities for the inhabitants of the territory and, above all, of the small town of Massaciuccoli, for the small and medium-sized enterprises operating in the territory, as well as for the local institutions, in terms of contribution to improve the awareness of their own potential and wealth.

The ideas and drawings elaborated during the International Summer School will be exposed in a public exhibition.
