We focus on how to reconsider theories about the public image of the city by revisiting Kevin Lynch’s survey under the light of those needs which are the engine of the contemporary production of urban images. According to this thesis, we introduce a taxonomy of images and actions useful to appreciate how events, rituals and practices influence popular imaginaries (by a multiplicity of urban populations and local stakeholders).
Keywords: Public image, Kevin Lynch, image survey, promotional policy, social construction
