In the period from March 22nd 2018 to June 21st 2018, PaPs had an opportunity to expand its activities in Puglia (Italy), in the occasion of the official engagement at the Politecnico di Bari. The activities carried on during the period included teaching as well as extensive research, networking and other academic works.

Teaching activities were organized in six lectures with a general topic of “Art in Urban Design”. Those were costumed for the students on master level, but open to the wide public. A seminar and a workshop on the topic “Public Art and Public Space” were organized for students from Scuola di Spezzialisazione in Beni Architecttonici e del Peisaggio, students form first and third year of academic studies at Politecnico di Bari, as well as for international students. Research activities has been based on 'in-situ' analysis of the local condition and specific context of the public art practice in Puglia Region and the City of Bari. The research aimed to discover present forms of public arts and how these are contributing to the process of place-making of local urban spaces. Networking activities has been based on establishing contacts, trust building and cooperation with local art community through mutual activities inside the teaching and research activities.

The course contained four lectures and a workshop in direct relation to the topic and program Public art & Public space - PaPs and, four lectures with a broader understanding of the city. Following contributions illustrate the plates and summary of the lectures (and a field research) that are directly related to the PaPs education.
