    Abstract

    Cities, even though they tend to lose their charm as they become transformed into standardized and impersonal spaces, maintain their ability to attract individuals. Individuals are passing through and companies are not anchored to the city nor do they assume responsibility for it. Cohabitation becomes a sort of truce based on mutual indifference.
