Density, Land Use, Community, And Italy
Density is a dirty word until you experience it. Land use is only a concept until you see a first hand example. Community is an abstraction that, until you live its benefits, lacks the power it truly conveys. The Walk! Tour to Orvieto, Italy immerses you for a week in a city where the joy created by community, complementary land uses, and density are felt, experienced, marveled at, and savored. Now in its fifth year, the Walk! Tour provides inspiration, example, and tools to enable you to transform your city. The tour is a mix of immersion, study, cultural experience, and pure fun. Meet with city officials to learn about the "Orvieto plan for the betterment of life." Sit down with Slow Cities headquarters staff to explore their work in 100 cities worldwide. Measure, observe, analyze, discuss and redesign spaces in this medieval town. Learn about the Etruscans, Italian customs, the importance of food, how wine is made. And earn 30 hours CPD credit from AICP. The next trip is in September with a June 23 registration deadline. For more information visit www.playce.biz.
