The cityscape is a stage on which, as in a time machine, it is possible to relive innumerable human events and experiences

ph. Claudio Rossi Oldrati 

La storia è una risorsa per alimentare la coesione sociale della comunità che abita un territorio e la sua capacità di accogliere ed integrare chi vi arriva dall'esterno.

ph. Cinzia Campogiani

Il territorio urbano è un palcoscenico dove, come in una macchina del tempo, si possono rivivere innumerevoli vicende ed esperienze umane.

Geohistories of Milan

foto-mappa-per-hp

A city’s story can be told in a lot of ways: through reports in the newspapers, through descriptions in a book or images in a film, through numbers in statistical data. Urban Genoma’s account of Milan relies on an interactive map, made up of many geohistories, i.e. stories of the past that can still be read in the space of the city. In each geohistory the boundary between the present and the past is blurred and connections are made between the places of today and the events that occurred and the people who lived in them in the past. A geohistory can be one written down for the first time or it can be the transcription of a story already told by others in more traditional ways.
