The conference will be the fifth edition in a series of meetings on the topic “Oltre la Globalizzazione” held by the Society for Geographical Studies since 2011.
The main topics of the conference will be the various forms of property and the Commons, particularly the definition of commons, which is crucial to fully understanding the management of natural resources and intangible goods such as the environment, landscape, biodiversity, public spending, information and intellectual property.
The participants will discuss and share ideas in eleven special sessions that will be organized throughout the day.
The speakers at the plenary session will be: Christian Iaione (professor of Public Law, Director of the Laboratory for the Governance of the Commons, LUISS Roma; members of the International Association for the Study of the Commons; Ilenia Caleo (Actress, Teatro Valle occupato, Rome); Ugo Rossi (professor of economic and political geography, University of Turin); and Alberto Magnaghi (town planner, professor at University of Florence, President of Societa dei territorialisti). Christian Iaione’s presence is motivated by his knowledge on this specific topic, and on the sharing economy in general. He has also contributed to the draft of the first European institutional document on the sharing economy, “Local and Regional Dimension of Sharing Economy,” which was promoted by the Committee of Regions, rapporteur Benedetta Brighenti (Engineer, Vice Mayor of Castelnuovo Rangone, Modena, Italy) as well as the draft of the “Regolamento sulla collaborazione per la cura e la rigenerazione dei beni comuni urbani” of the city of Bologna. The official english version is available here.
During the preparation of the conference, a book of abstracts was developed, thanks to the collaboration of the participants.
After the conference ,three publications have been planned: an electronic format of “Memorie” by Societa Studi Geografici, a special edition of the rivista “Annuali – Dep. MEMOTEF”, and an article on the “Rivista Geografica Italiana” .
