Associazione Urban Center Metropolitano

Torino, Piazza Palazzo di Città 8/F

The Urban Center’s aim is to communicate and spread urban transformation, with an activity plan aimed at stimulating interest in the themes related to the city and contemporary landscapes. The initiatives proposed are based on architectural projects and themes regarding urban quality, to promote knowledge, participation and dialogue, towards a different and wide-ranging public compared to the more usual one of people who work in the sector.

Specifically, in 2015 UCM proposed a programme of cultural activities to get a closer look at the transformation Turin has gone through in the last 20 years: the Centre depicts how it has changed, which policies and instruments made this transformation possible, and what future scenarios are opening up for the new metropolitan city.

The Urban Center’s activity seems to be evolving towards a mainly “educational” one, aimed at communicating and describing urban transformations and (with "marketing" aims in mind too), with less direct interest in transformational processes.
