Ciudad de Mexico: between Ancient Myth and Contemporary Complexity

After the volume on Rome, in the context of a three-year research on the quality of life in metropolises as the fate of globalization, Scuola Sinderesi presents the result of its research on the Mexican capital.

Indeed, Ciudad de México represents a privileged context for understanding today's structuring of development patterns in Latin American society, between historical legacy and current challenges.

In the essay presented to the public, contributions from experts in the fields of historical, religious, political, economic, legal and social sciences enable the three subsequent paths of in-depth study: on the normative criteria that regulate the administration of this megalopolis; on its development in comparison with the current parameters of sustainability; and on the paradigmatic character of a neighborhood like Santa Fe.

Introduced by the Rector of the Pontifical Gregorian University and the Director of the Roman Headquarters of the Adenauer Foundation, speakers will include: Valentina Alazraki, a well-known Mexican journalist; the Ambassador of Mexico to the Holy See, the Secretary of the Pontifical Commission for Latin America and the Director of the Mexican Headquarters of the Adenauer Foundation. Msgr. Samuele Sangalli, editor of the volume, will conclude.
