  • Misterbianco in the 17th Century: Sale and Re-­Foundation of a
           Sicilian Town

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Paolo Militello
      Misterbianco, casale (village) of Catania on the southern side of Etna, in the mid-1600s was at the center of financial transactions that led to its purchase and feudalization, until the re-foundation following the destruction caused by the eruption of 1669. The analysis of 1682 fiscal surveys ("riveli") outlined the socio-economic composition of the newly built Misterbianco.

  • Properties and social trajectories: the case of the Pernate family in
           Spanish Novara

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Giacomo Lorandi
      The most recent studies on the real estate market and on housing practices in the cities of the old regime have highlighted the polysemic meanings of the house, which embraces the social, political and symbolic dimension, as well as the economic one strict sensu. The house, in addition to responding to a primary need, generates status and rights. This article aims above all to propose some interpretative paths. In particular, the urban space of Novara is investigated focusing on the role of the house as a fundamental step in the social climbing for a family of the countryside, as a source of social legitimacy and support to inclusion in the ranks of the Decurionato. At the same time, the research highlights the socio-political value of buying a house from a brotherhood. So, It emerges the importance of the choice of the type of housing, its location and the social connotation that this gave to its owner. The case of the family of Pernate is emblematic because, it is easy to understand all the passages and the dynamics that led it to the top of the administration of Novara from the countryside.

  • «Il morbo continua a regnare». Plague in Tunisia between 1818 and 1820
           in the relations of Sardinian Consul Gaetano Palma di Borgofranco

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Giorgio Toso
      Between 1818 and 1820 Tunisia was struck by a serious epidemic of plague, which caused the deaths of thousands of people. In this context, European Consuls present in the North African Country reported in the relations to their Governments news about the spread and progress of contagion, the mortality rate and the measures taken by the Tunisian Authorities during the emergency: although sometimes tainted by prejudices or inaccuracies, these relations are a direct testimony to the plague in Tunisia and its effects. In this article are presented the references to the epidemic in the relations of Sabaudian Consul in Tunis, Gaetano Palma di Borgofranco, with particular attention to the tendentially negative imagine of the Tunisian Governement and population in these relations. Through the analysis of documents preserved in the Archivi di Stato of Genoa and Turin emerge, therefore, not only the practical data relating to the epidemic but also the ideas and attitudes of a nineteenth-century European diplomat towards a Muslim society during a health emergency.

  • Urban development in the "Artistic Cities" of Spain at the begining of the
           20th Century. Antonio Palacios and the preservation of aesthetic integrity
           in the proposals for Ourense and Santiago de Compostela

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Jesús Ángel Sánchez-García
      Together with the new urban planning, in the first decades of the 20th century the Civic Art movement found in the conservation of historic cities one preferential ground to keep the artistic quality advocated by Camillo Sitte. It was within this framework that Antonio Palacios made his proposals to intervene in the heart of two Spanish historic cities: Ourense (1928) and Santiago de Compostela (1932). The functional objectives of providing new accesses to their cathedrals were solved by means of a square presided by a staircase in Ourense, and an avenue of irregular layout and scenographic effects in Santiago. Sharing inspiration in the traditional and historic architectures of the Galician region, the personal interpretation of the vernacular heritage in the regionalism of Palacios was presented as an operative tool to address the reform and expansion in old cities, although finally both proposals did not go beyond the paper.

  • The impact of economic and political events on the urban and social
           transformation of Istanbul (1923-1984)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Carlo Sanna
      Istanbul, with a population of over 16 million, is the most important city of Turkey and one of the biggest metropolises of the world. Formerly capital of the Ottoman Empire, nowadays it is the major city of Turkey and its cultural, economic and social beating heart. The city alone generates over 40% of the tax revenue, about 40% of the entire nation’s GDP, and more than 20% of the country’s industrial production1. Strange as it may seem, less than sixty years ago Istanbul was a stagnant and forgotten port city, cut off from international trade routes, with less than a million inhabitants and virtually no growth2. Its condition mirrored the situation that the entire nation was living during the post-war period: a poorly industrialized and predominantly rural country, with economic structures mainly based on agriculture, poor and backward infrastructures, and generally far from being integrated in the international market. Turkey will be capable of realizing a huge period of growth that - albeit extremely unstable - will bring it firmly within the mechanisms of the global market by the last two decades of the 20th century. These processes had a tremendous impact: Istanbul, as the entire nation did, was crossed by huge transformations not only in its economic dynamics, but also in political and social ones. The city was shaken by a decades-long process of metamorphosis that took it from being just a big city among others, with its 950 thousand inhabitants in the Fifties, to becoming a huge metropolis of 8 million inhabitants by the Nineties3. The article will focus on how these historical processes have changed the economic, social, demographic structure of Istanbul, laying the foundations for making it the city it is today.

  • Academic histories, public histories, and heritage. Urban planning in
           post-Napoleonic Europe as observed through the lens of the Unesco sites of
           Nice and La Chaux-de-Fonds/Le Locle

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Filippo De Pieri
      The paper compares two sites that have recently been included by Unesco in the World Heritage List - La Chaux-de-Fonds/Le Locle and Nice - by focusing on the ways in which histories of early nineteenth-century planning have been mobilised in the construction of public narratives associated to urban heritage. Although such narratives appear to be questionable in many respects when confronted with available documentary evidence, they also seem capable to play a fruitful role in fostering the emergence of new research on hitherto underexplored topics. They therefore provide an interesting observation ground to explore the mutual links that potentially exist between academic urban histories, on the one hand, and socially shared accounts of urban change, on the other hand. When observed side by side, these Unesco sites point at the need for a comparative re-assessment of the history of early nineteenth-century gridiron-based city plans, especially within Napoleonic Europe. Once understood as the outcome of implicit urban theories valuing rational organization, individual initiative and an equal distribution of opportunities, these plans have in fact nourished a remarkable plurality of social imaginaries - well exemplified here by the opposition between plans conceived as a support for international tourism and leisure activities along the French seaside, and a plan conceived as a support for industrial production in the Swiss mountains.
