Anthropology and science-fiction find common ground in the interest for the city. The speculative urban narratives elaborated by solarpunk authors mirror the anthropological critical approach towards socio-economic inequalities, and the ethical and political engagement in achieving more inclusive and sustainable futures. This perspective is embraced also by the MUFANT, a science-fiction museum found in the outskirts of Turin that has been carrying out several cultural activities to foster social cohesion in the neighborhood. The ethnographic exploration of these initiatives suggests that solarpunk sci-fi can provide anthropology with a poetic and aesthetic lens to study collaborative survival in perturbated urban environments.
