This volume was first published by Inter-Disciplinary Press in 2016.
This volume is designed to introduce readers to the interactions and crossovers between culture and the city. The volume in fact intends to investigate urbanity as a cultural form on the basis of a broader and geographically representative collection of case studies. In particular it offers a stimulating range of inter-disciplinary perspectives showing that urban space manifests itself as an interpretative gaze, anchored in human life not just as something to look at but as a cultural form to live in socially.
Silvia Mazzucotelli Salice is is currently research fellow at the Faculty of Political and Social Sciences, Università Cattolica of Milan. She is primarily concerned with the interplay of art and urbanities. To date she has found public space a rich site for sociological inquiry.
