Cornell in Rome: 2018 Neighborhood Studies
With a focus on migrants, markets, and public space, the spring 2018 Rome Workshop participants conducted deep analyses of three fast-changing neighborhoods on the periphery of the Italian capital — Nemorense, Torre Maura, and Torrevecchia. The project teams examined the role of marketplaces in each neighborhood, the ways public space was used, the presence and degree of integration of migrant groups, as well as broader issues of transportation infrastructure, housing stock, urban services, and economic development. The students conducted extensive fieldwork and interviewed residents as well as local government officials, community activists, planners, and others responsible for urban policymaking.
Join the participants for a brief overview of each study, followed by refreshments.
Posters summarizing the workshop studies will be on display in the West Sibley Exhibition Hallway beginning October 17.
