Christian Iaione

Christian Iaione is a professor of Public Law at the LUISS University of Rome and has done pioneering research on the city as a commons. Ianione argues the importance of better cooperation between urban stakeholders, in which several parties feel responsible for the city and its public space.

Iaione believes that if several parties take responsibility for this space, the streets, parks, and squares and other public spaces in the city will benefit. Iaione has started several urban projects to promote this idea in which universities, companies, government agencies and social organisations work closely together with residents and initiators. Iaione also advocates new regulations to optimise these collaborations.

He will speak about his experiences at the conference  Co-Creating the City on Thursday, June 21.
