From April to September 2012 i took part in a resarch project in “Partecipatory Planning” for a complex of Social Housing in Milano, via Barzoni 11. The project, coordinated by prof. A.Delera, department B.E.S.T. Politecnico of Milano, was born by protests and demands of the tenants against a previous imposed architectural project that would have resulted in economic difficulties, transfer and destruction of social ties. The project aims to face to the complex problems of poverty in the  urban neighborhoods of social housing in the Italian cities.
