Hosted by FIG Projects Founders; Francisca Insulza & Fabrizio Gallanti

Therefore design in urbanism, in its multiple scales, can contribute to stimulate positive experiences.

After a short presentation, participants will be prompted by questions to remember moments of their life always accompanied to specific places. After which a collective exercise in cartography will take place, as the title suggests that there is not a single city, but as many as its inhabitants. In this case 21 million.
