Summary note:
A city is not determined by its size, is not a matter of degree, of accumulation of houses and people, but of nature; It is not something to be measured in extensive but intensive quantities. Paul Virilio once wrote that the city begins with the anxiety we feel closer to her. When the people, families and then neighborhoods or communities already are not enough themselves, when they can no longer be self-employed but depend on each other, or interfere with each other, then there's city. "Living the City" is something that expresses the classic difference between public and private, a difference which today is less clear than ever. Ultimately, inhabiting the city in the current social, political and economic conditions, involves understanding the complex relationships between public and private, collective and individual, the ordinary and the particular.
