Housing e planning. Una prima riflessione intorno ad una relazione difficile - The history of the institutionalization of planning demonstrates that the relations between planning practices and dwelling or inhabitating practices have been particularly problematic. Planning reduced dwelling or inhabitating practices to a problem of housing provision and regulation, within a frame of normalization of daily social practices and of social control. Such a process imposed a powerful cognitive frame to the planning practices and their histories, removing important experiences, such as those of Jane Addams or Mary Pierce at the beginning of the last century. If the aim is to define an original point of view on the contemporary dwelling and inhabitating practices, over the mainstream planning perspectives, it seems relevant to reflect on such anomalous past and current experiences.
Key words: housing, planning, dwelling, social practices, institutionalization, cognitive frames.
