Sympathy for the Devil, the Rolling Stones (Hyde Park, 1969): Bye bye, Mr. Andreotti…
Particularly happy, today, about the fact that my presentation to the ROSCCA 2013 Conference will take place in the Stallman Room: “Free as in Freedom”… ;-)
I’ll be speaking about the 2009 and 2012 earthquakes in Italy and the unsatisfying approach to great risks management til now in a presentation running under the title: “Learning from Mistakes: A different Strategy for Cultural Crisis Management in Post-Disaster Areas”.
Sobriamente, il chiarissimo prof. @senatoremonti promuove un grande movimento: l’Italia che sale. Ascenseur pour l’échafaud. #notinmyname — Alessandro Califano (@a_califano)

“Danger - falling teargas canisters” - The exterior of the Ministry of Justice in Rome, from where teargas canisters were apparently shot against a students’ rally passing nearby…
I finished writing a short essay about the need to rethink the strategy for managing cultural heritage protection issues in post-disaster areas: the ICOM Italy strategy that worked out pretty well in the aftermath of the 2009 earthquake in L’Aquila, was a complete flop when the 2012 earthquake hit the Emilia-Romagna region.
I’ll soon post it on SlideShare - will share the link, when this happens.
The University of Milan organized a Satellite Workshop at VL/HCC 2012 - IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human Centric Computing - under the patronage of ICOM Italy.
The workshop (“Creative Design for Interdisciplinary Projects in Cultural Heritage” - CDCH’12) will take place on 4 October 2012 in Innsbruck, Austria, at Congress und Messe Innsbruck GmbH.
My Invited Talk as a guest speaker will be “Standards, Prototypes, and Pilot Projects - Technology and Flexibility in Designing Cultural Heritage Projects in Challenging Contexts”. It will take into account my experience as a cultural consultant for UNESCO in Central Asian Countries like Afghanistan and Uzbekistan, and the theoretical approach fostered by OSACA - the Open Source Alliance of Central Asia.
incontrasse - specie se blu-girocollato -
per strada un tir, un Iveco impazzito,
non basterebbe aver l’auto blindata
né nascondere il culo dietro al dito.
The Italian Parliament? A bunch of zombies…
Italian MP, Justice Antonio Di Pietro, posted a great little video: his interview is intermingled with pictures showing main politicians as living dead, as in Romero’s cult movie (1968).
Wonderful! And of course, strongly criticised by the zombies themselves… ;-)
