Abstract

Culture and heritage are relevant elements in the marinas’ landscape, and they could be competitive advantages in the management of these maritime facilities. This paper explores the marinas’ cultural heritage and cultural landscape, and it attempts to deep into the relationship between them. The identification and evaluation of these elements represents a main stage. It is also proposed three relationship models, ranging from integration, to strengthen and evolution, which enhance the image of the marina and its environment.

Abstract

Les lieux parlent. Ils disent une manière de vivre et traduisent une mentalité. Comme en entrant chez quelqu’un, nous entrons dans son monde, de même en visitant une ville, nous nous imprégnons d’un certain art de vivre et en découvrant un paysage, nous pressentons toute une culture. Chaque lieu exhale son propre imaginaire.Toujours et partout, la vie épouse les lieux. Aujourd’hui, nos lieux de vie en disent long de notre époque, de nous-mêmes. Nos paysages portent la marque de la mondialisation. À côté de chez nous, elle se traduit dans des lieux très contrastés, porteurs d’états d’esprit très divergents. Ces différents paysages ont la particularité de se retrouver parfois côte à côte, parfois aussi de s’emmêler.Cet essai propose trente-six lectures de paysages contemporains mis en miroir. En contrepoint, ces variations cherchent à dévoiler l’imaginaire de chacun de ces lieux et à éclaircir les possibilités d’avenir qui s’y esquissent. En s’efforçant de lire les lieux que notre société engendre, ce livre interroge son devenir, ses devenirs multiples et contradictoires. Depuis 1998, Vincent Furnelle enseigne la philosophie du paysage à Gembloux. Sa pensée, attentive aux multiples enjeux éthiques sous-jacents à l’évolution de nos paysages, reste proche de l’expérience sensible. Il aspire à la clarté sans renoncer à la complexité.

Abstract

The South African UNESCO world heritage site of Mapungubwe Cultural Landscape became the site of a conflict in 2011, when a coal mine was built in close proximity. The area of tension evolved around matters of conservation of culture, socio-economic development, environmental and nature protection, as well as the generation of identity. Following the conflict and its actors, the author shows the valorisation/valuation of Mapungubwe's resources as well as processes of propertisation against the backdrop of the special obstacles after the end of apartheid. Utilising interdisciplinary research approaches and an understanding of resource as a relational assemblage, the author follows the shifting of discourses between conservation of culture and extraction of resources from the local to the international level. She shows that power of interpretation is bound to time, place and actors when it comes to constituting cultural property.

Abstract

London’s Urban Landscape is the first major study of a global city to adopt a materialist perspective and stress the significance of place and the built environment to the urban landscape. Edited by Christopher Tilley, the volume is inspired by phenomenological thinking and presents fine-grained ethnographies of the practices of everyday life in London. In doing so, it charts a unique perspective on the city that integrates ethnographies of daily life with an analysis of material culture. The first part of the volume considers the residential sphere of urban life, discussing in detailed case studies ordinary residential streets, housing estates, suburbia and London’s mobile ‘linear village’ of houseboats. The second part analyses the public sphere, including ethnographies of markets, a park, the social rhythms of a taxi rank, and graffiti and street art.

Abstract

Este libro explora distintos tipos de paisajes de guerra, surgidos como resultado de los grandes conflictos bélicos de la Europa del siglo pasado. Comparando el devenir de estos paisajes en Francia, España, Alemania, Rusia, Hungría, Polonia, los países bálticos, Ucrania, Camboya y Japón, se busca profundizar en sus huellas, en las reconstrucciones de la posguerra y en la patrimonialización más reciente de estos testimonios. La obra insiste en el carácter transnacional de esta historia particular de las reconstrucciones tras las contiendas, sin olvidar su dimensión artística y cultural, ni la repercusión del fenómeno en el cine y en la literatura. El volumen reúne los estudios de una veintena de especialistas que han abordado cada caso con enfoques amplios y exhaustivos donde se priorizan los elementos comparativos entre los diferentes escenarios bélicos, lo que supone una relevante aportación respecto a estos temas, que ve la luz en una edición coordinada en castellano.

Abstract

International lecturers and academics address issues centred on the fundamental role played by the urban centres and port poles of Adriatic Puglia and the Tyrrhenian Sea in ancient and modern history for the development of Mediterranean civilization.The common denominator of the themes tackled is therefore the urban historical landscape, outlined through the gaze of the most varied disciplines - from the history of art, architecture and the city to urban historical iconography and cartography, from archaeology to economic history, to that of building materials and their technological and chromatic use - drawing on many, and in more than one case unpublished, documentary and iconographic sources.A contribution of ideas in the common objective of knowledge and enhancement of the landscape, urban and architectural environment of those historic centers within the current debate on the fate of cultural heritage in Italy. For the territory of Gallipoli and Salento, a valuable tool for the identification of the most appropriate strategies for the exploitation of its recognized beauty, not separated from traditional hospitality.

Abstract

Green space managers develop and maintain urban green spaces, where children are often among the most frequent users. In a case study of four urban districts in Sweden and Denmark, focusing on children aged 10-11, the authors collected children’s texts and drawings and conducted child-led walks with group conversations about places, activities, preferences and suggestions. Children’s use of their local outdoor environments and their views on green space management varied, but they seldom perceived management as something they could affect. We recommend children’s experiences and opinions as a rich resource for green space managers and an important aspect of child friendliness.
