In July the Cosanti Foundation was contacted by Gian Paolo Chiari from the Museo del Camminare in Venice, Italy. The Museo del Camminare (Museum of Walking), was recently created to study and document daily life in the world’s largest and oldest pedestrian city.
In addition to dealing with Venice and the broader cultural, political and environmental meanings of walking, the Museum has just inaugurated a specific section (Car-free Life) on urban pedestrianization that includes the cases of London and Brussels and will soon involve Granada (Spain), Fes (Morocco), Oslo (Norway), Paris and others.
Their invitation read: “On behalf of the free and open association which runs the Museo del Camminare, it will be a great honor and pleasure to host a page dedicated to Arcosanti in the Carfree Life section.”
The archives department at Arcosanti responded and sent images and text. Click on the link below to explore the online exhibition for yourself.
