This book originates from a long series of cultural and research activities carried on by the Department of Architecture in Pescara in several cities of the Adriatic and Balkan Region. Our journey through this region was extensive and compelling, but when we arrived in Sarajevo our amazement could not have been greater. In the midst of the soft and narrow furrow cut by the Miljacka River, is a place where religions, ethnic backgrounds, cultures, languages and traditions have coexisted for centuries, side by side, commonly and peacefully. Geographically, Sarajevo is located between East and West, a condition that has made it a place of grafting, where overlapping cultural elements have always been superimposed to the pre-existing ones. The cultural mix and the consequent urban stratification, have in fact been a peculiar condition of this city, and even more so today when Sarajevo is looking for a new diversified and inclusive identity, where contemporary culture plays an important role. The book is the result of the collaboration between the curators and the authors: architects, artists, photographers, art experts, diplomats, sociologists and students, each of whom has generously agreed in sharing their own personal experiences of life, by working or studying in this extraordinary city and contributing to the definition of an “account of a city” that combines the present but also looks towards the future.

Stefania Gruosso is a research fellow at the Department of Architecture - Università “G. d’Annunzio” in Pescara. She holds a PhD in Architecture and Urban Planning. The main theoretical research interest is focused on the role that culture and creativity could play in processes of urban regeneration with a special attention to cities in East Europe. This has been flanked by applied research projects with experimental activities within the field of urban design. This was carried out in particular as a tutor in numerous international design workshops and as a consultant to a number of public municipalities both in Italy and abroad. Since 2008 Stefania Gruosso has been design tutor in courses of Architectural Design at the University of Pescara.
