‘From Bernini relational journey for Water’, hypothesis for a meaningful systemic vision of cultural and environmental heritage

The goal of this concept research is to enhance works of art made by Gian Lorenzo Bernini for Piazza Navona, Piazza di Spagna and Piazza Barberini in the city of Rome (Italy) with a vision of care and knowledge for the water entity.

This design proposal hopes to create a link and a dialogue between two dimensions: the artistic works, represented by Bernini’s fountains inside the architectonic spaces of these plazas on one side, and the dimension of common good environmental heritage of the element water that lives inside the shapes and art of the Bernini’s fountains.

This design scenario is a macro design system that has been developed with first-year Master’s students in Systemic Design.

Keywords: systemic design, complexity strategy, digital cultural heritage, water
