Tra didattica partecipata e “nuove” forme partecipative dell’abitare: l’esperienza di un docufilm

Isabelle Dumont


Abstract: BETWEEN PARTICIPATED DIDACTICS AND “NEW” PARTICIPATORY FORMS OF LIVING: THE EXPERIENCE OF A DOCUFILM

Several proposal have emerged over time in search of a more sustainable and participatory living, cohousing and ecovillages are among them. The docufilm, made with Roma Tre university students, seeks to understand from inside these “participatory forms of living” which try to implement the three complementary axes of sustainability (environmental, economic and social). 4 different cases have been analyzed: 2 in rural and 2 in urban contexts and for each context there is a project built from new and another involving the recovery of old buildings. The docufilm construction by the students (interviews, shootings selection…), was part of an experimental project aimed to draw their attention on the importance of field research, as well as aimed to motivate them to translate the scientific knowledge into the modern languages of the image, fostering the dialogue with civil society. The full version of the film is available in DVD, while the short one is visible on https://vimeo.com/189299910.
