Looking at the project and the built form of Ludovico Quaroni’s San Giusto neighborhood in Prato, the notion of the ‘open city’ is questioned as a spatial and ‘political’ alternative to the tendency of the contemporary city to organize itself into impenetrable enclaves. If on the one hand the illusion of living in the absence of contextual relations degenerates into the formation of such enclaves, on the other hand the need to live within recognizable boundaries remains a condition of collective life. San Giusto, with its open courtyards yet capable of defining confined spaces, still seems to offer, seventy years after its conception, a ‘progressive’ form of dwelling, where architectural and urban morphologies contribute to favoring dialogical relationships between the individual and the community.
Keywords: San Giusto neighborhood; Ludovico Quaroni; openness vs closedness
