Risultato della ricerca: LibroOther report

Abstract

This volume investigates urbanity as a cultural form. The essays illustrate the real and imaginary ways that we interact with the cities through the portal of the arts. It is designed to introduce readers to the interactions and crossovers between culture and the city. The volume in fact intends to investigate urbanity as a cultural form on the basis of a broader and geographically representative collection of case studies. In particular it offers a stimulating range of inter-disciplinary perspectives showing that urban space manifests itself as an interpretative gaze, anchored in human life not just as something to look at but as a cultural form to live in socially. The essays illustrate the real and imaginary ways that we interact with the cities through the portal of the arts. The authors seek to expand and enhance our understanding of how Art, Architecture, Music, Fashion, Film and Media critically engage with urban space and actively contribute to the creation of original cityscapes thus revealing various cultural models of development.
