Book announcement: Maurice Cerasi, Attilio Petruccioli, Adriana Sarro, Stefan Weber (eds.) _Multicultural Urban Fabric and Types in the South and Eastern Mediterranean_ Beiruter Texte und Studien (BTS) 102, 2007. 269 pages EURO 59.00 The book can be ordered internationally from the publishers: Ergon Verlag http://www.ergon-verlag.de/en/ e-mail: <email@example.com> About the book: This volume is a compendium of the main topics discussed during the international seminar "Multicultural Urban Fabric and Types in the Southern and Eastern Mediterraneanâ" held in Trani, Italy. Analyzing the outcome of multicultural settings, trends and influences from various angles in cities such as Aleppo, Galata, Timbuktu, Mostar, Chios, East Vermion, Damascus and those of Morocco and Tunisia, and commercial quarters of cities in various regions, the contributions reflect the change of attitude during the last decades in the exploration of urban structure and architecture in Southern and Eastern Mediterranean towns. Increasing attention has been paid to the coexistence of heterogeneous and even conflicting urban and architectural models, and urban and typological concepts, within the same towns and within the same urban fabric. New light has been thrown on the strong cultural interdependence with Europe, an unavoidable reality of the eastern sector of the Mediterranean. On the other hand, the deeply rooted interaction among the sub-regions of the Levant and its very lively and often wholly native processes of modernization and change have assumed major importance as a subject of research. This volume continues and deepens the analyses of the complex multicultural urban fabric in the Southern and Eastern Mediterranean.
