IN A CONTEXT OF RADICAL PLURALISM AND IN THE ABSENCE OF A SHARED VISION IS IT STILL POSSIBLE TO LIVE TOGETHER?

IN A CONTEXT OF RADICAL PLURALISM AND IN THE ABSENCE OF A SHARED VISION IS IT STILL POSSIBLE TO LIVE TOGETHER? A DIALOGUE BETWEEN PHILOSOPHY AND URBAN PLANNING ON THE FUTURE OF THE PLURAL CITY

The city has always been the place of coexistence and differences. Today the world population is increasingly urban. How can we think of the present and future of the plural city of the contemporary era? The philosopher Carlo Sini and Gabriele Pasqui, director of the Department of Architecture and Urban Studies of the Polytechnic of Milan, talk about the paradoxes of the relationship between city and countryside, culture and nature. The problems and contradictions of an unachievable democracy explode in the degenerate places of the urban suburbs.
