Descriere

Un ghid de explorare Vechile harti lasau pete albe si eventual ase­zau acolo dragoni sau alte dihanii. Sudul Bucurestiului, cel ascuns dupa bule­vardul lui Ceausescu, este o pata alba nu doar pentru vizitatori, ci si pentru majoritatea locui­torilor din partea de nord. Noi n‑am intalnit acolo dragoni, in schimb am gasit locuri magice si oameni remarcabili. Ghidul contine harti speciale, povesti scrise sau fotografiate. Povestile sunt despre case frumoa­se, mai noi sau mai vechi; despre parcuri istori­ce, monumente si patrimoniu industrial, despre blocuri, case care cresc deasupra strazii, des­pre case‑vagon cu bolti de vita sau despre cen­tre culturale independente; despre artisti vizuali radicali, curatori, dansatori, arhitecti, designeri, medici, administratori de bloc, scriitori, activisti comunitari, antreprenori sociali. Mergem in vizi­ta la doamnele Victoria, Jana, Marioara, Leana si Geta din Rahova, dar si, mai spre sud, la casa lui Arghezi. Mai aflam si despre niste zeci de pri­mari, cu cate un mandat de zece minute fiecare. E o carte pentru calatori, pentru cei ce iubesc orasele si sunt interesati de felul in care se des­curca singure si se reinventeaza. E si o carte pentru cei indragostiti de sudul etern si de pretutindeni. An explorer’s guide The old maps left white spots and sometimes drew there dragons. The South of Bucharest, hidden behind Dicta­tor Ceausescu’s pompous boulevard, is a white spot for visitors, but also for most inhabitants from the North. We didn’t find any dragons there, but instead some magical places and remarkable people. There are some peculiar maps in this guide, as well as a lot of stories, photographed and in wri­ting. There are stories about beautiful old and new houses; about historical parks and the in­dustrial heritage; about endless apartment buil­dings, houses that grow above the streets, about the urban vernacular and the independent cul­tural centers; about radical visual artists, cu­rators, dancers, architects, designers, doctors, writers, community activists, social entrepre­neurs. We pay a visit to Victoria, Jana, Marioara, Leana and Geta, a group of ladies from an un­justly maligned neighborhood. Also showing up are the houses of avant‑garde writers, a sexy swamp, and about dozens of mayors, each allowed a dozen minutes term. It’s a book for the passionate traveler, the city lo­ver and for those interested in the way ‘bad’ ci­ties or city parts manage on their own. It’s also a book for those in love with the eternal and world‑wide South.
