Prof. Stefano Catucci, University of Rome
Prof. Catucci teaches Aesthetics in the Faculty of Architecture and is the author of the book “Learning from the Moon” (Quodlibet, Rome, 2013. The book is available only in Italian). The book analyzes the paradoxes of the imminent transformation of the Moon into a museum and tries to better understand the logic of tourism and our fetishistic relation with the remnants of our past.
