What makes a city real?

This post was written by Andrea Paoletti

Travelling around the world gives me the opportunity to see various elements from different perspectives. Last week I flew from San Francisco to Veracruz. What I found was a collapsing city without respect to its cultural and architectural history. But on the other hand, because of this transparent exposition of the normal life, Veracruz was a very good spot where to observe Mexican life style, local people attitude and lose myself cycling around. In a certain way it looked real. So what makes a city real? And how can we innovate cities like those?
