The knowledge of the current city is boring and exhausting: it lacks meetings and possible belonging to a common sense. Supermarkets and suburban streets are a small part of the territory in which we behave as in a «non-lieu». The context prevents us from meaningful relationships: in this way, our «behavioral tics» make us blind and deaf to the specific signs of the urban landscape. Our best tool of political culture has jammed: we are not more citizens of a precise city that gives us political competence starting from our experience. We are becoming generic citizens to which only indirect emotions remain, generated by the media.
