City and River: Memory, Myth, Identity

Roberto Pasini, Peter Rowe

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This essay analyzes the evolution of the city/river relationship across time. It focuses on how the identity of the dwelling community precipitates about sense-giving nuclei 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.
