City and River

Memory, Myth, Identity

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This essay analyzes the evolution of the city/river relationship across time focusing on how the identity of the dwelling community precipitates about nuclei of sense such as collective memory and identitarian narrative. By plotting an account of continuities and discontinuities in the relationship between geography and human construction, the text reconstructs the layering of the locus of the city and its river, that is, the inherent sense of the place.
