Source text - Italian Lo scenario, per come è inteso dai più che si occupano di studi urbani, è la costruzione di uno o più ordini ipotetici tra i diversi fenomeni che investono la città, l’economia e la società e la prefigurazione degli esiti e conseguenze che da questi ne derivano. Ipotesi che si costruiscono a partire da indizi e suggerimenti colti attraverso attente descrizioni del mondo che abitiamo.
A differenza dello scenario infatti, la vision compie una scelta più determinata e meno ipotetica; essa, una volta portate alle estreme conseguenze le ipotesi più probabili, opera una scelta indicativa e maggiormente persuasiva della realtà, indirizzando la realtà contemporanea verso una strategia operativa capace di sospingere il più possibile l’ipotesi che maggiormente si crede migliorativa per una collettività.
Una vision tuttavia muove dai medesimi presupposti e sempre dalla concreta logica del per arrivare ad affermare che .
Ciò chiarisce, forse, perché le nostre ricerche meta-progettuali alla scala della città sono stati definiti “esercizi di pragmatismo visionario”.
Translation - English As it is understood by most people who attend to urbanistic studies, the scenario is the creation of one or more hypothetical orders of the different phenomena which invest the city, economy, society and the prefiguration of results and consequences which derive from them. These are hypotheses based on clues and suggestions deduced from careful description of the world we live in.
Indeed, unlike scenario, vision is much more resolute and less hypothetical. Once it carries the most likely hypothesis to the extreme consequences, vision will take its indicative and much more persuasive choice of reality, directing the contemporary reality towards an operative strategy capable of supporting the most posssible hypothesis which is believed to improve collectivity.
Nevertheless, a vision originates from the same assumptions and always from the concrete logic of “what would happen if”, in order to assert that ”it would be most desirable, if this happened…”
Maybe, all this can clarify why our meta-planning research into the city scale have been defined visionary pragmatism exercises.
