ò·spi·te/

male and female noun

The person who receives or entertains guests at home or elsewhere. The person who enjoys hospitality or is, as invited, in another’s home was sacred for the ancient people.

 

Welcome, it is a word that we often hear of these times, “acceptance of the other” and “integration” have become mantra that the policy is repeated with goals often not aligned with the ideal who would have us believe. Walking on the street we constantly encounter different faces, looks and gestures belonging to cultures, traditions and horizons far from ours.

But have we ever allowed the luxury of thinking what actually represents for our society the host, such as the possibility of rebirth for the territory that silently carries with it, as a bag full of memories and promises? Talking about diversity is easy, the harder it’s to find in everyday reality the countless coexistence stories, the “non-events”, the design that away from the reflectors triggers interactions with each other and explores the potential of hosting reflections, rites, identities, creating new communities in continually state of experimentation.

The amazement of sharing thoughts and actions coming from different realities contains the seeds of change and precedes a possible idea of coexistence which can only work on different relational levels, in shapes that vary from place to place, time to time. The starting point of this editorial is the belief that diversity should not be read as a problem. If we learn to accept the stranger, accommodating him to our design table, we will be able to accommodate the new fluid and contextual identities, parts of a future tissue in perpetual spinning.
