LOCAL STRUCTURES FOR A NEW WORLD ORDER
RICCIONE, 5-16 JULY 2021

"The Atlantic and the Pacific are seas of distance,
the Mediterranean a sea of propinquity,
the Adriatic a sea of intimacy".

(Predrag Matvejević)

Precisely because the world risks becoming mired
ever more deeply in the crisis of values in which it is
already floundering, the only reliable frame of
reference left is the physical space of the territory(..)
In the territory humanity can continue to find the signs
of its past and the symptoms of its future

(Giancarlo De Carlo)

Today, more than two-thirds of the trade value between the European Union and China goes by sea (via the Suez Canal and port of Rotterdam). In the near future, the Chinese Government plans to activate a fast train line from the Far East to the North Adriatic, a strategic infrastructure to reach inland parts of the Old Continent (i.e. Germany).
This epochal geo-strategic masterplan puts the spotlight on the role of the Adriatic region – its coastline and its ports- in the massive trade and infrastructural project that aims to link China to Europe.

urbanization along the northern Adriatic Sea, across Veneto Emilia Romagna, Marche and Abruzzo represents a unique, and all too often overlooked, laboratory to study the evolution of the contemporary European city. Adriatica will work as a “think tank” studing the evolution of the urban coastal condition of the Adriatic city: its past, its present condition and future potentials. The Adriatic City has grown and keeps striving under the pressure of social, technological, and economic forces. We set to develop the first comprehensive study and an urban theory describing this vast territory unfolding along the Adriatic.
