Design for Politics – Applied training

Webinar, Friday 19th March, 18:00 -20:00

Pandemic is significantly shaking the foundations of a staggering reality, marked by inequalities and in search of greater social, economic and environmental responsibility. A decisive technological, social and political transformation is taking place producing new forms of work and new relationships between people, the environment and the community. Strategical preparation for the future is essential, expressing a political planning that is able to translate new technological opportunities into development and innovation levers.

FEPS and Fondazione Socialismo want to explore and renew the ways to architect the political future in the age of technology. Politics was the “queen of techniques”. Architecture, literally superintendent of techniques, has always been a metaphor for politics. Design is the key to get out of the metaphor.

This workshop, led by Elisabetta Cianfanelli and Maria Claudia Coppola from the University of Florence – Department of Architecture and animated also by David Rinaldi, FEPS Director of Studies & Polocy and Luigi Covatta, Direttore Mondoperaio, aims to present the disciplinary field of design, its tools and its approaches, as historical translator of technological progress placed at the service of social well-being. Thanks to its analysis, verification and synthesis, a design project is able to provide answers to perceived and intercepted needs, thus accompanying the evolution of modus vivendi.

The workshop activity proposes to the participants to adopt and experiment some of the design tools in the drafting of policy-reforms at European level aimed at promoting a transition to a new digital democracy.
