Series: This lecture is part of the 3rd series “From Italy to Hawaii: Connecting two worlds through art, science, and community,” which started in 2019 and features experts from all over Italy who discuss topics that affect both Italy and Hawaii.

Talk: Does a city at human scale exist in contemporary society? Can it exist? That is a city respectful of the human being and of the environment? A city that is truly a gathering place, a place of encounter and exchange for all: children and elderly, different ethnic, socio- economic-cultural  groups? Questions, thoughts, reflections and realization of  the great masters of the Italian architecture among which Renzo Piano and Stefano Boeri, well known for the vertical gardens in Milan. What can they teach us and what can all architects learn from the Hawaiian culture?

Presenter: Dr. Rocco Minerbi pursued classic studies (Liceo Classico Berchet), earned a Fifth Year Piano Diploma (Conservatorio Giuseppe Verdi), and obtained a Doctoral Degree in Architecture (Polytechnical University) in Milano, Italy. She taught Italian language and culture, painting in Italian, psychology, architecture, and peace studies at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa and Kapiolani Community College. Dr. Minerbi is the co-author of the book “Macrohistory and Macrohistorians: Perspectives on Individual, Social, and Civilizational Change” (Galtung et al., 1997). As an artist, she has won prizes and awards, and had art exhibitions in both Italy and Hawaii.
