This book reports the process of construction of the “Charter of Public Space” which was adopted during the Second Biennial of Public Space. The Charter, translated in eight languages, aspires to be a document for all those who believe in the
city and in its extraordinary ability for hospitality, solidarity, conviviality and sharing; in its inimitable virtue in encouraging social interaction, encounter, togetherness, freedom and democracy; and in its calling for giving life to these values through public space. At the same time, cities show the worsening of economic, social, ethnic, cultural and generational inequalities. Public space must be the place where citizenship rights are guaranteed and differences are respected and appreciated.
The images which are contained within the different translations of the Charter are a figurative story of the principles contained therein.
