How to experience the city as students between tourists and citizens? The idea is to focus on Students’ Life in a City of Citizens and Tourists, with its opportunities and problems. How can the medieval context of the city keep on being an attractive space for contemporary needs of multiple users? Objective of the workshop is to develop possible solution related to product- service systems.  Students will work in mixed groups (from the University of Bologna and Nîmes) during the week. The main theme will be the city of Bologna, through the prism of its cultural identity: academic, gastronomic and architectural (or artistic). On Monday morning, the students will be given some information by the team, and will then choose more specific areas and users to work on. Over the course of the week, they will meet with local residents and other key players in the city to discuss these issues. They will be given a number of methods and best practices to help them in the field. On the basis of this meeting, the students will develop proposals for design solutions that they feel are appropriate for both the users and the city of Bologna, taking into account the complexity of the subject, which is considered to be systemic.The team will accompany the students throughout the week to help them develop a proposed solution, which will be presented on Friday afternoon.
