The public space through an aesthetic ethics

WithA. Tommasoli, L. Tommasoli

The contemporary city is based on the interaction between different systems. If we take in consideration the perspective which represents the city as a cultural event (Settis, 2017), the relation, the paper aims to analize, will be between human being and its rapresentation. If we consider the reciprocal influence of the individual and the society, we understand the crisis of the contemporary city as a consequence and a cause, at the same time, of the “crisis of presence”. Therefore the contemporary city can be a crucial tool through which developing a reintegration process: take action on the city means make an ethos of transcendence. The paper analyze two case studies aim at redefining the sense of community of urban citizens.
