abandoned buildings (Map of Unused) and in the possibilities of re-use (Map of Ideas), in the diversity of operators who produce culture and in the multitude of events spreading it (Map of Actor & Event). Anyone can geotag photos, videos , sounds and texts and so contribute to a new collective narrative of the city.
The goal is to reclaim the city’s ability to be a tireless factory of images and imagination, a polyphonic matrix of possible worlds, composing through daily experience a collective map to open a different look; it is an occasion giving you alternative ways to transform the city.
To this end, the project support both online and offline activities.
Open labs trigger light and low-frequency actions on urban spaces. Workshops in audio-visual mapping will be available, with missions and crossings of the space, inviting the public to explore, critically rethink, reclaim and re- imagine these territories as a place of sharing, learning and experience, and maintain and enhance them through a creative and innovative usage, even if only temporarily.
In addition, to stimulate tactics of urban regeneration and support projects of reuse and re-appropriation of urban space, the platform has created the Map of real estate owned (rented or less) georeferenced open data of the City of Naples.
Mappina in Neapolitan is the worn out kitchen rag, used and abused, but useful in the daily usage of those who take care of the house.
It is also, in Italian, a “little map”.
Building MappiNa is a bit like living in the city.
