Transformation and Reorganization of Italian Cities and Their Architecture in the Interwar Period

How did urban Italy come to look the way it does today? This collection assembles recent studies in architectural history and theory exploring the historical paradigms guiding architecture and landscape design in between the world wars. The authors explore physical changes in townscapes and landscapes, covering a wide range of architectural designs from strict modernist solutions to variations of regionalism, mediterraneanism and national style from all over Italy. Specifically, the volume explains how conservation, restoration and town planning for historic areas led to the production of heritage, elucidating the role architects like Marcello Piacentini, Innocenzo Sabbatini, Mario de Renzi and Giulio Ulisse Arata played in this.

The Techno-Apparatus of Bodily Production

A New Materialist Theory of Technology and the Body

What if the terms "technology" and "the body" did not refer to distinct phenomena interacting in one way or another? What if we understood their relationship as far more intimate – technologies as always already embodied, material bodies as always already technologized? What would it mean, then, to understand the relationship between technology and the body as a relation of indeterminacy?
Expanding on the concept of the apparatus of bodily production in the work of Donna Haraway and Karen Barad, Josef Barla explores how material bodies along with their boundaries, properties, and meanings performatively materialize at sites where technological, biological, technoscientific, (bio-)political, and economic forces intra-act.
