Reguarding:

Conference on Post-capitalist City,  Pula – Croatia, 14.-16.8.2009
Before the splitting of the Self Made City working group we were invited as co- founder of the Self Made City project.

At the conference we will present as urbanXchange our new and still unnamed project. We will speak about the workshop „Imparare da Borghesiana“ which took place in Rome in July 2009.
