During the last few years, several Italian city-planners have considered the concept of urban transition as something aprioristically able to produce new social practices. The aim of this article is to analyze the effects of transition in the metropolitan area of Bari (a large town in Southern Italy) where most of the recent public works have ignored the need for empathy. In particular they have not considered the way to capture the citizens’ imagination which is essential for distribution of affectivity into human relationships as those with public institutions. This thesis takes its cue from the results of recent studies regarding the negative effects on the affective tone produced by the botulinum toxin used in plastic surgery, and argues that public works are performed according to an aesthetic view that does not consider the value of beauty as sociability.
