Example text

The resistance of the image of the discreet city is also tied to the persistence of another image and another illusion, that of the eternal city, celebrated in 1978 by the Roma Interrotta exhibition. But, for Antoine Grumbach (Grumbach 1994), Roma Interrotta goes beyond the simple exercises of “gymnastics of the imagination on the parallel bars of memory”, to recall Giulio Carlo Argan’s expression in his inaugural speech. The question posed in filigree in Roma Interrotta is that of the future of the past of urban forms, faced, on the one side, with the excesses of the safeguarding and promotion of the historic value of urban fabric and, on the other, the indifference of urban renewal with regard to history and the mechanisms of formation of the fabric constituted.

Some of Vittorio Gregotti’s projects refer to another meaning of megastructure, near to city-territory, such as the 1971 project for a new site for the University of Florence, but above all the project for the University of Calabria, a gigantic structure of a linear bridge, on which the units of settlement are attached crosswise, and which depicts the territorial future of urban form. With respect to these positions, the resistant utopia presents itself as an example of reciprocal integration of past and present.

Ville Machine and the disappearance of urbanity were for Françoise Choay two associated concepts, since the utopia of the Ville Radieuse presented itself as the systematic deconstruction of all previous types city, of all forms of continuous, articulated agglomeration, of a possible role of ancient centres as nuclei giving dynamism to a new development, as had happened in Hausmann’s Paris and Wagner’s Vienna. For this reason it can be conceptually considered liquidatory, but also effectively liquidatory, due to the international influence without equal that it exerted on territorial and urban planning after the Second World War.
