many possible cities
As we imagine the future(s) of our cities, let’s begin by listening to the voices of those who try to deconstruct and resignify them.
During Many Possible Cities Radio Papesse will be curating a three-day live broadcast from Manifattura Tabacchi, to start answering some of the most urgent questions that blossom along the way of urban regenerators and cultural practitioners seeking a balance between independence and sustainability.
Many Possible Cities’ talks will be aired on Manifattura Tabacchi website and on radiopapesse.org and its studio will be hosting numerous guests, artists, architects and cultural workers.
