EXHIBIT: THE JOURNEY OF THE STONES, A JEWISH CEMETERY: URBAN RENEWAL OF THE SMALL HARBOR WATERFRONT IN SYRACUSE
as part of XIII Edition of the Italian Language Week around the World, under the high patronage of the President of the Italian Republic.
On Sunday, October 13th, 2013 at 18:00, the exhibit “The Journey of the Stones, a Jewish Cemetery: Urban Renewal of the Small Harbor Waterfront in Syracuse” will open with a special reception open to the public, at the International Conservation Center “Città di Roma”, in the historic city of Acre (Israel).
The event, organized in partnership with the Italian Cultural Institutes in Tel Aviv and Haifa on occasion of the XIII edition of the Italian Language Week around the World: “Research, discovery, innovation: Italy, land of knowledge”, was originally inspired by the Worthy Citizen of Jerusalem architect David Cassuto and its realization has been possible thanks to the collaboration of the International Conservation Center “Città di Roma” in the city of Old Acre. Two lectures, both open to the general public, will be held during the inauguration evening: one by Arch. Francesco Taormina (University of Roma, Tor Vergata), the coordinator of the project, on the subject “Planning by empty spaces”, and one by Arch. David Cassuto, on the theme “Aspects of Southern Judaism before the expulsion”.
The urban renewal project of the Small Harbor of Syracuse has been seen in various prestigious locations, among which the MAXXI museum in Rome (2011), the Santa Croce monastery in Bisceglie (2011), at the World Congress of Design and Architecture in Tokyo (2011) and in the Italian Pavillion at the Yeosu Expo, in South Korea (2012).
