The essay deals with the topic of the congress and discusses the causes that lead to the creation of voids within historic cities. Starting from a recent book by Nicola Gardini, the essay highlights two trends: the urban void can be considered as a bearer of meanings and stories, perhaps more intriguing than the built city; or the void can be seen as an absence that must be restored to ensure the life of the city. Mostly of urban lacunae are not accidental: they are often the result of an express intention. Rebuilding in a void is not easy, however, according to recent Italian laws, both in situations such as after earthquakes (L’Aquila 2009) or in the cities ruled by speculative overbuilding.

Abstract

The essay deals with the topic of the congress and discusses the causes that lead to the creation of voids within historic cities. Starting from a recent book by Nicola Gardini, the essay highlights two trends: the urban void can be considered as a bearer of meanings and stories, perhaps more intriguing than the built city; or the void can be seen as an absence that must be restored to ensure the life of the city. Mostly of urban lacunae are not accidental: they are often the result of an express intention. Rebuilding in a void is not easy, however, according to recent Italian laws, both in situations such as after earthquakes (L’Aquila 2009) or in the cities ruled by speculative overbuilding.
