Savonarola Soundwalk

room 9 ECHOES

Savonarola is a residential district full of vitality. Out from the touristic tour but very close to the city center. Here life is good and the demand to acquire a property is high. The crisis of tourism since the emergence of the Covid-19 showed the city center being emptied. Empty of tourists, students but also of inhabitants. But here, people continued to live day after day, always passing through or around the Savonarola square. For sure, there were more activities here than around the famous Duomo. In particulary, the Savonarola square gives us a pist to understand why this district is loved. This square allows us to describe the concept of "open and inclusive city" developped by Richard Sennett in his book « Building and dwelling : Ethics for the city ».
So, we can say that the quality of the place is strong. Because many different activities take place into it or around it, at different moments of the day and of the year. For example, the square sound differently when summer's coming... This soundwalk is a sonic photography and a composition of how this area sounds during an ordinary january week.
