CITIES AND WAR
Military defences, ruins, permanences of urban memories and images
Throughout history, cities have had to face up to invasions, sieges and ruins due to wartime conflicts, and cities pre-emptively needed to be defended by all means and equipping themselves with fortifications and defences. The winners always tried to erase the traces of urban identity, while the inhabitants strenuously fought around the symbolic sites of the community and then they recovered every sign of their past, of the surviving memories of the city, architecture and landscape.
At such a significant moment in European and world history, the 10th CIRICE International Conference 2023 aims at offering an opportunity for scientific reflection on the relations between political choices, military actions and the physiognomy of cities and of urban landscape, on the evolution of defence structures and techniques, on the representation of war and its effects on the urban image, and on the recovery of traces of city memories.
