The idea that cities are no longer the expression of an average value of necessity, but they are arenas in which different actors face and meet each other is a (postmodern) metaphor interpreting the urban spaces. The difficulty of imagining urban policies and, also, new spatial configurations for the city to ensure and augment this function is an issue of the actual city, and it remains hard to be accomplished. In Palermo, the lack of urban policy has stimulated a mobilization that amplifies the self-construction in reusing and maintaining city spaces.
