Description

This book presents the urban area as an anthropological-metaphorical space, structural at the same time, without losing its literary or historical aspect. Dante's Divine Comedy is used as a test field for setting out three possible paradigms of urban scenography: the polis or Paradiso, the labyrinth or Purgatorio, the tower or Inferno. In this volume, three geometries outline the scenographic cosmos of our cities: one horizontal for rest (eternal polis), one stress diagonal (purgatory wall) and one failure vertical (infernal Babel). A dantesque urban imaginary: the accelerated fragmentation of the metropolis. whose mental life keeps being threatened.show more
