From one of the comments
L’incontro è avvenuto a Milano nel 1968, organizzato da Eco e da Enzo Melandri, che è il primo degli intervistatori in questo breve video. Una foto dell’incontro è stata inserita nella riedizione Quodlibet di “La linea e il circolo” di Enzo Melandri. Eco e Melandri scommisero una birra su come Foucault avrebbe pronunciato “episteme”: alla francese, secondo Melandri, o alla greca, secondo Eco (vinse Melandri). L’incontro non fu organizzato per caso: Melandri, assieme a Celati, Calvino, Carlo Ginzburg, e altri, lavoravano al progetto di una rivista incentrata sul concetto di “archeologia”, che purtroppo non andò in porto (sia Celati che Calvino hanno scritto un saggio che ruota attorno all’archeologia: si tratta dei materiali di discussione del progetto). Inoltre, Melandri stava scrivendo “La linea e il circolo”, nel quale si confronta anche con Foucault.
Sarebbe interessante sapere da dove proviene questo video, e se è disponibile una verione più lunga.

Power inscribes order on space through codes. Bureaucratic codes measure and normalize dynamic ecologies and constitute the substrate of any infrastructural system, organization, and praxis. They striate space and punctuate time to increase efficiency, maximize profit, reduce risk, and maintain order in cultural, social, economic, and political spheres. #decoding gauges the agency of spatial practices in relation to the challenges and capacities prompted by codes and protocols.

Organized by students in the Doctor of Design Studies program, this conference investigates the impact of codes, concerned with mapping of environments, demarcation of legal territories, operational protocols of logistics and risk management, and codes of building and subtraction. By exposing the spatial and socio-cultural implications of micro-politics embedded in the hidden codes and protocols, we speculate about the potential agency of design practices mediating between processes of normalization, and the live, complex, and unpredictable ecologies of human habitation.
