Inspired by Fernand Braudel's famous essay, Connectivities tells its own story of the great Mediterranean port cities of the 16th and 17th centuries-Istanbul, Algiers, Venice, Genoa, Seville and Lisbon- which represented the nodes of power and exchanges in a Mediterranean that saw the birth of modernity, between two empires and globalization. In two parallel but inter-connected pathways, the visitor is invited to a time leap in order to explore the question of contemporary urbanity and show expanding cities as places where influxes and connections converge.
