In this article, we tried to talk about the city we live in, Rome, analysing a case study: the struggles of the resistant community of Pigneto-Prenestino, a 20th century neighbourhood characterized by an uninterrupted history of urban conflicts, for the re-appropriation of the dismissed area of the factory Snia Viscosa. We described the involvement of our team in these struggles, trying to summarize a process that has been going on since the Nineties, involving both grass-roots movements and institutions. In particular, in the last three years, we participated to (and studied) these movements. In the article, we illustrated some characteristics of the process, simply describing and explaining it chronologically and highlighting some aspects. At last, we tried to find some temporary conclusions (about contested cities, network and horizons, invisible forces), that maybe could be useful to similar experiences.

Abstract

In this article, we tried to talk about the city we live in, Rome, analysing a case study: the struggles of the resistant community of Pigneto-Prenestino, a 20th century neighbourhood characterized by an uninterrupted history of urban conflicts, for the re-appropriation of the dismissed area of the factory Snia Viscosa. We described the involvement of our team in these struggles, trying to summarize a process that has been going on since the Nineties, involving both grass-roots movements and institutions. In particular, in the last three years, we participated to (and studied) these movements. In the article, we illustrated some characteristics of the process, simply describing and explaining it chronologically and highlighting some aspects. At last, we tried to find some temporary conclusions (about contested cities, network and horizons, invisible forces), that maybe could be useful to similar experiences.
