Abstract

Urban spaces are the image of collective will and political institution; so urbs and civitas are each aesthetic representation of the other. If the city’s iconography reflects, in the mirror, the architectonic structure and origin of the political institution; will, freedom, rights, ownership, membership, dependence, are civitas foundation and, at the same time, ‘visibile’ in its architecture. So we can talk about geometry of urban paces and geometry of civitas and we can see constitution and political idea of civitas in a building, a square, in a time wich is time of history, or time of political power, of an Ideal city too.
