LSO Ep.6: In Conversation with Dr Margherita Grazioli | Julia Lurfová and Dr Nerina Boursinou

In this month’s episode, we share a stimulating conversation with Margherita Grazioli, a fixed-term assistant professor (RTDa) in Economic Geography in the Social Sciences Area of the Gran Sasso Science Institute (L’Aquila, Italy). Margherita is also a steering committee member of the ⁠Beyond Habitation Lab⁠, a Turin-based collective study lab.

In her work, Margherita explores the right to the city through themes of housing, squatting, and urban commons. As a long-standing member of Rome’s Movimenti per il Diritto all’Abitare (Movement for the Right to Habitation), her academic engagements are firmly rooted in her activist background. Having lived in a housing squat in Rome for six years, Margherita brings a critical perspective to our conversation around housing struggles, which we are thrilled to share with our listeners.
