Abstract

The text provides a comprehensive reflection on the role of design in connecting people, heritage, and processes, highlighting its ethical dimension in the context of the New European Bauhaus and the Palermo convention. Design is appreciated not only for its aesthetic contribution but also for its potential to integrate and communicate knowledge, serving as a bridge between different disciplines. It emphasizes the societal impact of design, particularly in relation to social innovation and cultural heritage, underscoring Italy and Sicily's rich cultural legacies as evidenced by their numerous UNESCO sites and works of art. Furthermore, the text advocates for a design approach that is user-centered and democratic, encouraging the participation of local communities in the design process to address contemporary challenges such as renewable energy and sustainable food networks. The text also moves away from iconic design towards a more systemic project that encompasses everyday policies. It concludes by emphasizing the dynamism of design research and the importance of fostering connections that lead to positive societal and environmental outcomes, drawing on historical and contemporary philosophical perspectives on empathy and community.
