Un luogo per promuovere intercultura

Translated title of the contribution: [Autom. eng. transl.] A place to promote interculture

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


[Autom. eng. transl.] Each of us goes through many places, brings with it experiences and memories, confronts and adapts through the complex mechanisms of socialization and re-socialization to habits, lifestyles, languages. The theme of the place is evocative of complex dimensions: space as a structural element of being, the theme of roots and roots but also the place as something unstable and plural. From the point of view of the reflection that lies at the heart of the present research, the term place refers to a context in which it is possible to make something generative happen, something that enriches our communities and makes the encounter between different cultural belonging easier. . Today it is increasingly evident that the risk of fragmentation and permanent conflict characterizes, in a pervasive way, societies after modern and, to an even more disruptive extent, societies that, facing up to modernity, find themselves exposed to difficult transition processes and socio-cultural innovation. On this side and beyond the Mediterranean, we are witnessing phenomena of intolerance, of difficult comparison and dialogue between different cultures, between different social groups, between men and women, between subjects carrying values that are felt as irreconcilable. What is worrying today is above all the conflicts that arise in the sphere of socialization, social integration and cultural production: neighborhood, neighborhood, family, school, workplace, intercultural and environmental conflicts.
