We joined, on behalf of the Martesana Ecomuseum (City Hall 2), to the traning course The suburbs areas of the city – active training on the urban regeneration 2018/2019 (Adriano Quarter) of LaCittàIntorno program. The aim of LaCittàIntorno project is to start a process of urban regeneration in the suburban neighborhoods of Milan, in partership with DAStU Department of Architecture and Urban Studies of the Politecnico of Milan e the Municipality of Milan. The goal of the course is to develop tools and skills useful for the implementation of urban regeneration actions and new projects in the Adriano district.

On 14/12/2019 we delivered a detailed report of the course to the publich meeting of the Ecomuseum Martesana and we presented during the conference the process of building a parish map, starting from the Community Map of the Adriano neighborhood created as a course output.
The parish map/community map is a tool used in the urban redevelopment and regeneration political strategies to raise awareness of the people who live the city.

On the specific theme of memory, the course revealed that memory can be used in the Adriano district as a expedient to consolidate local relationships between people and places, to give value to spaces, to make people more aware of the history of the neighborhood they live in, so that they can respect and enhance it.
