In return, social transformations most obviously take the stage on the public spaces of cities that are open-to-all spaces of urban culture and are the main reason why cities define spaces of freedom. Besides the direct relationship it establishes with the public spaces of the city, the public realm is an intangible concept shaped by how the urbanites develop their comm...
