A la carte urban policies. mega-events: from exceptionality to construction of ordinary planning practices. a look at Italy: case study of the 2006 winter olympic games in Turin

Abstract

Considering the increasing focus on mega-events studies, in parallel to the growing interest demonstrated by local administrators and European cities towards hallmark events, the article aims to analyse this new trend and existing relationship between the regular policies and rise of new forms of urban management. It deals with Italy as a case study: since the 1990s several Italian cities have been systematically participating in competitions for mega-events in order to initiate development projects. More precisely, the article focuses on Turin, which is the first Italian city to have embraced this strategy systematically. The analysis of this case-study allows us to highlight a rise of a profound change within trends of mega-events: mega events have started to lose their main features – such as ephemerality, exceptionality and occasionality – and have turned into something close to the ordinary urban practices.

A la carte miesto politika. Grandioziniai įvykiai: nuo išskirtinumo iki eilinio planavimo statybų praktikos. Italija: 2006 metų olimpinių žaidynių Turine atvejis


Santrauka. Straipsnyje analizuojama nauja Europos miestų tendencija rengti įvairius grandiozinius renginius. Nagrinėjamas Italijos atvejis, kai keletas miestų atkakliai siekia organizuoti milžiniškus renginius, tokius kaip olimpinės žaidynės. Turino miestas šios progos siekė sistemingai. Analizuojama, kaip kito išskirtinių renginių mada, kaip tokie dideli įvykiai prarado savo pagrindinius bruožus – efemeriškumą, išskirtinumą ir individualumą, ir tapo miestų planavimo kasdienybe.
