In recent decades, many cities around the world, despite contradictions and open problems, have become increasingly attractive places. Spaces chosen to live, build, invest. Tourist and cultural destinations to visit, workshops to experiment with forms of sharing and social organization. However, the images of those same semi-deserted cities during the lockdown have left their mark and at the same time raised new questions about the type of urban development to strive for in order to respond to people’s desire to live better and face the challenges of our time.
