Gal­le­ria di Imma­gi­ni

Coglien­do gli inter­ro­ga­ti­vi emer­si dal pri­mo semi­na­rio del ciclo Armo­nie com­po­ste dal tito­lo “Il pae­sag­gio costrui­to, il pae­sag­gio nell’arte, que­sto secon­do incon­tro affron­te­rà il tema del­la peri­fe­ria, come il luo­go del mar­gi­ne del­la cit­tà.

Il semi­na­rio si pro­po­ne quin­di non sol­tan­to di vede­re un rap­por­to con­cre­to tra mona­ste­ri e peri­fe­rie nel mon­do, nel­la sto­ria così come oggi, ma soprat­tut­to di riflet­te­re sul­la natu­ra del siste­ma mona­sti­co e su come esso pos­sa esse­re model­lo per le peri­fe­rie degli uomi­ni. S’intende, cioè, riflet­te­re sul mona­ste­ro come un pic­co­lo labo­ra­to­rio di uma­ne­si­mo dove ali­men­ta­re l’arte del­la con­vi­ven­za tra tra­di­zio­ne e inno­va­zio­ne, tra silen­zio e comu­ni­ca­zio­ne, tra mate­ria, spi­ri­to e pen­sie­ro.

Il Semi­na­rio è a un mas­si­mo di tren­ta par­te­ci­pan­ti (di cui cin­que stra­nie­ri), su paga­men­to di una quo­ta d’iscrizione. La richie­sta di par­te­ci­pa­zio­ne pre­ve­de l’invio di un cur­ri­cu­lum accom­pa­gna­to da una let­te­ra di moti­va­zio­ne a: segreteria.armoniecomposte@praglia.it entro il 10 mar­zo 2017.

L’Abbazia di Pra­glia e l’Università di Pado­va han­no avvia­to, nel cor­so del 2015, un rap­por­to di col­la­bo­ra­zio­ne al fine di favo­ri­re la cono­scen­za del siste­ma bene­det­ti­no di pro­get­ta­zio­ne e cura del ter­ri­to­rio, basa­to sul­la pecu­lia­re impo­sta­zio­ne del­la vita comu­ni­ta­ria indi­ca­ta dal­la Rego­la di san Bene­det­to e in gene­ra­le da tut­to il pen­sie­ro mona­sti­co da essa ispi­ra­to.

Gal­le­ry

Respon­ding also to the sti­mu­la­ting que­stions rai­sed by the fir­st semi­nar in the Armo­nie com­po­ste cycle, enti­tled Con­struc­ted land­sca­pes, land­sca­pes in art, this second mee­ting will explo­re the the­me of “peri­phe­ry” in the sen­se of the outer edge of urban set­tle­men­ts.

Throu­ghout their histo­ry, mona­ste­ries have cho­sen to esta­blish them­sel­ves away from town and city cen­tres in pla­ces that com­bi­ne seclu­sion with suf­fi­cient pro­xi­mi­ty to allow them to main­tain a dia­lec­tic rela­tion­ship with urban rea­li­ties and with the world. As in the past, a com­mon fac­tor in the­se land­sca­pes is the prio­ri­ty they give to con­struc­ting “com­mu­ni­ty” spa­ces, desi­gned to enrich the lives of the peo­ple who inha­bit them and to lend them­sel­ves gra­dual­ly to being absor­bed into the urban land­sca­pe. Today, mona­ste­ries embo­dy a bor­der­li­ne ter­ri­to­ry encom­pas­sing both the spi­ri­tual dimen­sion and a con­cre­te com­mit­ment to con­struc­ting the human envi­ron­ment, and as such can them­sel­ves be under­stood as “peri­phe­ry”.

Can histo­ry or the pre­sent day pro­vi­de models and expe­rien­ces of peri­phe­ry con­struc­tion, like the exam­ple of the mona­ste­ries, that can gui­de con­tem­po­ra­ry endea­vours to reclaim urban land­sca­pe deve­lo­p­ment from the figu­res Andrea Zan­zot­to defi­ned as “hear­tless plan­ners”? Is it pos­si­ble to discern ele­men­ts of com­mu­ni­ty values and aspi­ra­tion to cen­tra­li­ty in peri­phe­ral land­sca­pes?

The semi­nar will set out, the­re­fo­re, not only to iden­ti­fy a con­cre­te rela­tion­ship bet­ween mona­ste­ries and peri­phe­ries in histo­ry as in con­tem­po­ra­ry life, but also to reflect on the natu­re of the mona­stic system and on how it can work as a model for human peri­phe­ries. In other words, the aim is to reflect on the mona­ste­ry as a small-sca­le labo­ra­to­ry of huma­ni­stic thought and prac­ti­ce
Pra­glia Abbey and Padua Uni­ver­si­ty have joi­ned toge­ther to enhan­ce kno­w­led­ge ofmo­na­stic land­sca­pes, and in par­ti­cu­lar ofthe Bene­dic­ti­ne system ofland plan­ning and mana­ge­ment based on the distinc­ti­ve approach to com­mu­ni­ty life set out in the Rule ofSaint Bene­dict and in gene­ral in the who­le ran­ge of mona­stic thought that it inspi­red.
dedi­ca­ted to foste­ring the art of coe­xi­sten­ce bet­ween tra­di­tion and inno­va­tion, bet­ween silen­ce and com­mu­ni­ca­tion, bet­ween mate­rial, spi­rit and thought.

The star­ting point of the semi­nar is a cri­ti­cal exa­mi­na­tion of the­se sub­jec­ts, com­pa­ring the prin­ci­ples that inspi­re the mona­ste­ry “as the peri­phe­ry” and “in the peri­phe­ry” with the con­cept of peri­phe­ry in the cur­rent urban plan­ning deba­te.

Sub­se­quent con­tri­bu­tions will offer an ana­ly­sis of the outer edges of towns and cities at various sta­ges in histo­ry and will reflect on the role played by mona­ste­ries in the con­struc­tion of the­se land­sca­pes; this will lead on to a focus on the ways value-rich peri­phe­ral land­sca­pes that gene­ra­te well­being for tho­se who live within them and for the town or city as a who­le can still be con­struc­ted thanks in part to spe­ci­fic actions put into prac­ti­ce by mona­ste­ries and other reli­gious bodies, or to local efforts or plan­ning that is sen­si­ti­ve­ly cogni­sant of the func­tion of com­mu­ni­ty.

Con­tri­bu­tions from repre­sen­ta­ti­ves of mona­stic cul­tu­re will pro­vi­de fir­st-hand insights into the spe­cial rela­tion­ship bet­ween the con­cept of “desert” and the iso­la­tion of mona­ste­ries on the one hand, and the histo­ri­cal deve­lo­p­ment of their links with various forms of ter­ri­to­ry and “peri­phe­ries” on the other.

At the con­clu­ding ses­sion, which will be open to the public, the resul­ts emer­ging from the semi­nar will be con­si­de­red in the con­text of salient poin­ts of view and expe­rien­ces con­cer­ning the rela­tion­ship bet­ween mona­stic spi­ri­tua­li­ty and land­sca­pes of con­tem­po­ra­ry “peri­phe­ries”.

Histo­rians of archi­tec­tu­re, art, geo­gra­phy, socio­lo­gy, archaeo­lo­gy and urba­ni­sm are invi­ted to take part in the semi­nar with a view to achie­ving broad inter­di­sci­pli­na­ry deba­te. The pro­gram­me inclu­des the pre­sen­ta­tion of papers, discus­sion groups on spe­ci­fic aspec­ts of the gene­ral the­me, and site visi­ts.
