edited by the network of socio-cultural hybrid spaces


The project "Hybrid socio-cultural spaces and open cities" includes workshop days from 7-10 April, during which various moments of territorial animation will be organized, with walks and guided visits to the city districts (or NIL Nuclei of local identity) that have germinated hybrid spaces such as Stecca3 and ZONA K in the Isola district, Rob de Matt in Niguarda, Spirit de Milan in Bovisa, Casa degli Artisti in Brera, BASE Milano in the Savona-Tortona district, mare culturale urbano in San Siro, East River in the Turro district , Cascina Cuccagna in Porta Romana, Terzo Paesaggio in Chiaravalle ...

Between April and June 2022 3 public walks, 3 bike tours, on foot, by canoe will be organized. The public walks and guided tours will show the genius loci of the neighborhoods, the meeting spaces, the places of conflict, the public services present and the self-organized activities and services offered by the hybrid spaces.

The public walks will be accompanied by HYBRID AUDIO by ZONA K:
Creative audio guide that crosses the territory of Milan to discover the Sociocultural Hybrid Spaces that inhabit it. An electronic voice of a personal navigator will guide the listener on a journey in stages through those places - new, historical, adapted, rich in history, cultural, performative and social incubators - which are part of our urban horizon.


10 April 3 pm-7pm

# 01 NIL Isola-Dergano-Niguarda, Bovisa

Meeting at Stecca3 and BAM Park for the island bike tour in ZONA K, then towards Dergano and Bovisa passing through Nuovo Armenia and Scighera, then back in the saddle towards the swing citadel of Spirit de Milan, and again riding towards the former Paolo Pini psychiatric hospital, now a public park with Olinda… But it’s not over,  but it's not over, yes go back to Dergano because the party at Rob de matt awaits us! All told by Radio 20158 of Dergano.
