Adaptivity is the ability to change and adapt to changing circumstances. It can stimulate the resilience of particular cities and urban systems, but resilience can also be achieved by not adapting to change and by returning to ‘business as usual’, once the change or shock is absorbed. The aim of this macrosession is to deal with the polysemous nature of the two paths. In spatial terms, the urban and regional scale of the phenomena of resilience and/or adaptability will be considered; in temporal terms, the resilience processes will be investigated on a broad chronological spectrum. The concrete historical declinations of processes will provide a wealth of experience on which further comparative research can be based. We call for research that, in different disciplinary fields, highlights above all the relationship between the capacity of a community to respond to traumatic stresses (political, climatic, health), and the possibility of structures and forms (urban, territorial, infrastructural, museal) to absorb, withstand or foresee changes in response to such stresses, both in terms of resilience and adaptation.

More specifically the macrosession will include (but it will be limited to):
