A round table to launch the second issue of INTERTWINING Magazine. After the 2018 Davos Declaration it’s been perceived as extremely urgent a return to urban transformation practices linked with cultural values. What does this mean? What kind of values should designers, planners, and public administrators put at the center of their decision-making process? With the help of scholars, architects, and thinkers, these questions have been developed, with a focus on the way in which the fruitful encounter between human sciences and architecture could address this challenge — the latest issue of Intertwining is the result of this debate.

Una Donna Fantasiusa - Un Nonologo

Idea by/starring Eleonora Micali
Written and directed by Stefano Maria Palmitessa

A true story, where fiction is just background to scenes from real life narrated in this monologue or - better - a "nonologo" [Nonna-logue], as author Stefano Maria Palmitessa likes to call the memories, sensations, and jokes that the protagonist lived during her arduous childhood, spent alongside her gentle grandmother. "I was four years old when I decided I would become an actress. I have always had a lively imagination. I would enjoy making up stories with characters I would play, astounding my friends and relatives as they turned into the audience", Eleonora recalls.
