DARE Zoom-in #1: Narrating urban transformation - a digital platform for Ravenna's Darsena

View of Darsena in summer
In this first Zoom-in for the UIA project DARE, Levente Polyak explores the digital platform conceived to support the transformation of Ravenna's Darsena area.

DARE is a non-conventional urban regeneration project that instead of focusing uniquely on the physical environment, invests in the skills of its inhabitants and the digital knowledge infrastructure of the area. In the course of the project’s three years, the Ravenna Municipality is cooperating with Darsena’s residents, businesses, initiatives and institutions to create an inclusive, accessible digital framework for the area. This framework will help Darsena's population, users and visitors to better understand their area, develop new skills, improve their quality of life and become protagonists of their neighbourhood. DARE’s digital platform is conceived as a database to combine data coming from various sources, ranging from sensors and statistical data to historical data, visual materials and even stories, to support this process.

For this first episode of the DARE podcast, UIA expert Levente Polyák visited Darsena and met some of the project’s protagonists to explore how knowledge about Darsena is collected and distributed through the platform Darsena Ravenna Approdo Comune (darsenaravenna.it).
