The present study is aimed at highlighting Piazzale delle Corporazioni (Guild square) urban role: it is a structure built behind the theater...

Il paesaggio del turismo oltre il COVID-19: prospettive per una Firenze resiliente

Elena Tarsi & Massimo Carta
Le misure anti-contagio legate all’emergenza sanitaria da COVID-19 decise da molti governi nazionali, hanno avuto un impatto devastante sull’industria del turismo, mettendo in luce con estrema chiarezza la fragilità di un sistema che, pur producendo enormi profitti, trasforma profondamente i luoghi interessati, la percezione che ne hanno abitanti e visitatori e la loro capacità di resilienza. Il contributo riflette sul caso di Firenze e sulla progressiva specializzazione turistica del suo centro storico, presentando un bilancio...

Altri, altrove, altrimenti

Annalisa Metta
Terminata la fase più intensa e drammatica del contagio da Coronavirus, l’osservazione di alcune sue conseguenze sugli spazi aperti urbani potrebbe essere utile per l’avanzamento del progetto, al di là della contingenza emergenziale. In particolare, si sollevano due questioni. La prima: dopo che l’assenza degli umani ha rivelato la presenza di altri esseri viventi, vegetali e animali, nello spazio urbano, potrebbe ora essere possibile e persino desiderabile stabilire con essi rinnovate condizioni di compresenza, alla...

Cities after covid-19: how trees and green infrastructures can help shaping a sustainable future

Francesco Ferrini & Antonella Gori
There is no doubt that metropolitan areas are, and will increasingly be, the engines of economic growth and fertile grounds for the development of technology, creativity and innovation and this will need a shift in the future cities planning and management especially regarding the increase in green areas. This must be done through a regeneration process that can only refer to the 17 objectives of sustainable development (UN, 2019) that are frequently neglected in regeneration...

Update in progress. Urban metabolism strategies: an application case

Federico Orsini
Time acts as a fundamental variable of urban transformation. In fact, changing needs can make an architecture or a technological unit obsolete over time. Precisely, this unexpected deficiency in performance can no longer be interpreted as a limitation but rather as potential to update the architecture itself. This paper fits into this framework and investigates both the potential and limitations of architecture considered an upgradeable system in which time, and the need for changes, become...

Schedule quality evaluation for Construction Project Management

Marco Alvise Bragadin & Kalle Kahkonen
The construction schedule is the most important construction document as it indicates total project duration, project stages and times of activities, costs, logical sequences, quality and safety. Hence, the quality of a phase schedule presented by a contractor must be assessed by the owner’s consultant either before the commencement of works or during the bidding phase. Only few international standards concerning schedule quality exist, and most of them are not specific for construction. A construction-oriented...

The circular economy in transforming a died heritage site into a living ecosystem, to be managed as a complex adaptive organism

Luigi Fusco Girard
Climate change is a consequence of our difficulty to manage the currently conflicts and contradictions. It is configured as a process that makes human life on Earth increasingly uninhabitable, making the relationship between the Earth’s ecosystem and humanity increasingly difficult. A fundamental cause of the climate change is the way in which economic wealth is produced and distributed. The current economy produces also ecological and social poverty. The adaptive reuse of cultural assets is proposed...

Antiproliferative analysis of aqueous extracts of cabreúva (Myrocarpus frondosus) on the Allium cepa cell cycle

Cassiane Ubessi, Luísa Gonçalves Rodrigues, Julia De Senna Pereira, & Solange Bosio Tedesco
Myrocarpus frondosus is widely used in Brazilian folk medicine for bronchitis, gastritis, ulcers and wound asepsis. However, there is a scarcity of scientific data proving the safe use of tea of this species or if there is any toxic effect on the human organism. This study aimed to evaluate the antiproliferative effect of aqueous extracts of cabreúva on the Allium cepa cell cycle. The aqueous extracts were prepared from leaves, bark and roots (dried material)...

Dalla Francia a Dresda. Le Bibbie portatili della Sächsische Landesbibliothek - Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek

Adriana Paolini
The Sächsische Landesbibliothek - Staats- und Universitätsbibliothek of Dresden preserves a very interesting collection of medieval and modern manuscripts, once in the most part belonging to the Electoral Library of the Saxon Dukes. The study of the ancient catalogues of the Library has revealed the presence of five portable Bibles copied in the 13th century in the North of France and acquired by the Saxon Court on the antiquarian trade during the 18th century, except...

Pubblici uffici e competenze grafiche nell’età carolingia: una relazione biunivoca? Il caso di Lucca

Antonino Mastruzzo & Gaia Elisabetta Unfer Verre
The authors examine the way in which the paleographic analysis can enrich the historical knowledge of the public administration in a local context of the Carolingian age. In particular, the case of Lucca is examined. In fact, Lucca offers a privileged point of observation due to the extraordinary richness of its surviving documentation. The analysis focuses on only one type of contract: the exchange that involves ecclesiastical institutions. Finally, the possibility of a more in-depth...

Karyological variability and chromosomal asymmetry in highland cultivars of Chenopodium quinoa Willd. (Amaranthaceae)

Sreetama Bhadra & Zhi-Quan Cai
Chenopodium quinoa Willd. is rapidly gaining importance worldwide as a superfood. However, structural diversity and asymmetry analyses of chromosomes of different cultivars of the species are largely understudied primarily owing to their small chromosomes. In this paper, karyomorphological investigations were performed on 21 cultivars of C. quinoa with varying seed morphology cultivated widely in the highland regions of the Andes, which is the center of domestication of this species. Somatic chromosome number was found to...

Knowledge and innovation, privileged tools of the agro-food system transition towards full sustainability

Inge Van Oost & Anna Vagnozzi
The two strategic documents for the future of Europe post 2020 (Green Deal) and agriculture in Europe (From Farm To Fork) recognize the important role of knowledge and innovation systems in accelerating change towards food sustainability. Researchers and advisors, together with the other actors of the Agricultural Knowledge and Innovation System, have the mandate to cooperate more closely to supportall on this transition path. This includes stronger and more structured networking, increased information sharing and...

Direct Payments between Income Support and Public Goods

Angelo Frascarelli
Direct payments maintain a fundamental role in the future CAP, since they still absorb a high share of the CAP budget. However, despite some confirmations (mainly related to internal convergence, types of interventions and the role of genuine/active farmers), several relevant innovations (e.g., a reinforced cross-compliance, new eco-schemes that replace the greening payments, a new capping model) are expected to affect their implementation and the way they contribute to achieving the CAP goals. The aim...

«Ridurre li drammi all’esigenza». Il modello performativo dell’opera in musica dai libretti del ‘Fondo Bonamici’ della Biblioteca Marucelliana di Firenze: disseminazione e adattamenti (1600-1737)

Luca Degl’Innocenti & Caterina Pagnini
The essay is a synthesis of a project financed by the University of Florence, focused on the dissemination processes of the Italian opera in the Baroque era. The original perspective of the research sees the libretto as a privileged witness of these ‘adjustments’, through the analysis of the witnesses related to the different occasions which can define the different ways of reception and adaptation of the staging practice and the dramaturgical structure.

‘Il quinto evangelista’ di Mario Pomilio-Orazio Costa. Apocrifo del dissenso

Teresa Megale
The essay reconstructs Orazio Costa’s direction of Il quinto evangelista by Mario Pomilio. The drama is included by the author in the final chapter of the award-winning novel Il quinto evangelio and staged during the 29th Festa del Dramma Popolare di San Miniato (September 1975), a few months after the publication but, after a short tour, never represented. The novel had the same lot: after eighteen editions and translations in many languages it was re-published...

La predicazione cappuccina per le quarantore e un sermonario annotato della fine del Seicento

Carla M. Bino
The essay explores the dramatic and performative dimension of the Forty Hours Devotion – one of the most important liturgical services of the Counter-Reformation – promoted by Capuchin Friars Minor between the 16th and 17th centuries. The first part summarizes the salient steps that marked the emergence of a precise system of celebration developed by the Order, highlighting those elements that made it original in choice of time, organization and, above all, detailed meditation practice....

Early Modern Crime Literature: Ideology, Emotions and Social Norms

Maurizio Ascari & Gilberta Golinelli
Early Modern Crime Literature: Ideology, Emotions and Social Norms delves into the complex relation between early modern crime and its literary representations in the light of an episteme that was characterised by contrasting ideologies, forms of transgression and their containment. It explores the multi-layered, polyphonic and porous nature of crime literature as dynamised by social and cultural changes, positioning it within a shifting geometry of religious and political conflicts, class and gender divides and negotiations,...
