The Heritage of fascist architecture, dossier for the critical reuse of the Casa del Mutilato in Palermo. A public seminar and an architectural intervention by Decolonizing Architecture Advanced Course.
Presented by Prof. Alessandro Petti
The students from the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm, invited international and local guests and the general public in Palermo take part in a discursive symposium-exhibition at the fascist building Casa del Mutilato in Palermo. The summer school aims to create a critical discussion on the heritage of fascist architecture. A scissor lift, installed as a prosthesis to the Casa del Mutilato, acts as a tool to reorient the future uses of the building and pragmatically start a much needed restoration process.
Public seminar: 18, 19 June: 7pm – 11pm
Meeting of the Coalition for re-use of the colonial fascist architecture: June 20: 7pm – 11pm
