FUTURA. What will happen to us, to others, to the planet – Chapter IV. Massimiliano Fuksas’ lecture at Museo Novecento in Florence.
On Thursday June 17th Massimiliano Fuksas held a lecture entitled “Chapter IV” at the Museo Novecento in Florence.
The lecture inaugurates the cycle “Futura. what will happen to us, to others, to the planet” curated by the Museum Director Sergio Risaliti.
“We need a change of perspective to live in the third millennium and a deep reflection on the transformations that the pandemic has brought. The cities of the future will no longer be megalopolises but diffused centers, fragmented over the territory with a fast digital network and sustainable infrastructures” “Innovation and research must become the starting point for growth and change in order to achieve a simpler and more functional architecture of which man is always the center.”
The cycle of events Futura, intends to ask to artists, architects, writers, scientists, philosophers, psychologists, researchers, economists and entrepreneurs what are the choices to be made to face the future and remedy the mistakes of the past. What change will be possible, what responsibility we will have in front of mother earth and peoples.
“The time of the pandemic, time of anguish and suffering, of sickness and convalescence, is not yet over. However, we are living the time of hope and rebirth” – says Sergio Risaliti, Director of the Museo Novecento. “The global health and economic crisis has highlighted the flaws of globalization,
A deep change is necessary, we need to review the models of development and those of exploitation, those of coexistence and relations, mobility and relationships, mass tourism, social and health organization of our cities. Thinking about the future means rethinking the past; imagining the future means imagining differently the past.”
