The publication presents contemporary approaches to the integration of food production and consumption in urban contexts. As a contributor I wrote about my experience in teaching the “SuperMercato” design studio for Master students at ETH Zürich. In this academic course we worked together with students and a rehab community in central Italy to explore the potential of implementing a farmers market in the city centre of Bologna, as a way of giving an opportunity to the community members to re-engage with society through work, in a mediated and protected environment. Students’ projects tackled the complexities of organizing modern-day logistics of food distribution in a dense historic urban centre, while taking special care of social inclusion and accessibility.
