Publication: Networking collective knowledge to foster change. The case of Sansheroes network (San Siro, Milan)
The aim of the following paper is to offer a reflection on the role that the co-production of knowledge assumed in the development of a local network of rooted social actors in the context of San Siro neighbourhood, one of the biggest Milanese public housing complexes. The paper will analyse the different phases of the development of the network, underlining the main strengths and the critical aspects related to the role that it assumed in promoting a new vision for the transformation of the neighbourhood. It will especially focus on the role that Mapping San Siro - Politecnico of Milan action-research group - played in the creation and progression of the network, particularly in relation to the involvement of the institutional actors and in the governance of the network. The contribution will set up some reflections regarding the role that governance, time, spatiality and planning play in this kind of processes.
