Looking at the dynamics that take place every day in the urban environment and confronting the point of view of students and residents are the best way to understand how people attach meanings, values and images to places that are important to them.

Mapping the knowledge gained through interviews and direct interaction with local communities is fundamental in order to address issues of  perceived safety, accessibility, legibility and maintenance  and to gain a deeper knowledge of how problems, opportunities and environment are perceived by different groups of people.

This is a challenging but nevertheless fundamental perspective from which the city can be looked at and should be always taken into account in all those actions aimed at adding something meaningful to it.
