If the notion of passage can be seen as a way to renew the design of the contemporary urban public space, we must be careful and accurate when we refer to ancient and contemporary passages. How to pass? How to refer? These are the two issues that were discussed freely by each participant, focusing a a specific project, exampleor argument.
Three one-hour sessions will were followed by an open discussion with the public.
