Cities are not empty pages; but narrative spaces in which particular (hi)stories; myths and parables are inscribed. These cultural codings have a cumulative effect in part the result of the process of continuous intertextual cross-reference. The reflections on the cultural texture of cities are intended to make clear that we are dealing with processes of long duration. Like a rhizome; the cultural texture has burrowed deep; and unconsciously guides even those who are determined to radically alter the image of the city.
