L'Aquila 2009. Urban planning in emergency and the primer of degradation processes

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords: Seismic Disasters; Reconstruction; Disaster Recovery; Land Consumption.

Due to typological choices and localization strategy of emergency's buildings, the L'Aquila earthquake housing's management brought a catastrophic change in the shape of the city that led to a disaster in living. A massive diffusion of urban connotated elements in rural areas has led to the spread of an urban sprawling phenomenon that has disturbed a sense of the place determined in the past by a polarity between the historic city and the countryside. This principle of urban disorder numbs an already careless local culture of living, increasing inurement of citizenship in a landscape confusion that pursue camouflaging economic practices of land consumption behind the political rhetoric and public discourse of cultural heritage protection.
