Milano-Bicocca and UB students
The main aim of the summer school is to provide a critical analysis about urban attractiveness from different perspectives: Economics, Sociology, Urban Planning and Cultural Management. Key issues that will be examined are: location theories, cultural capitals, mobility, housing, night time economy, tourism and citizenship. Internationally well-known experts will share their knowledge and views with the students on these topics.
The summer school will also provide tours in specific places and hot-spots within the two cities, in order to corroborate the theoretical part with the empirical field.
The students will learn about the Janus-faced urban attractiveness in two spatial contexts with different attributes and trajectories. Milan and Barcelona are currently at the top positions in the urban ranking of popularity and success. However, side effects are not neutral.
