Urban paradoxe and policies. A discussion around Turin - The following four texts attempt to observe changes on urban policies in Turin, starting form the hypothesis that those changes are related, even before that to some relevant problems and their resolutions, to four paradoxes. Paradoxes make explicit a state of urban policies, which is visible also in other cities. Speaking of Turin means to localize it and to be able to treat it with some more precision. The four paradoxes are: 1. Evanescent and mobile pictures of the transformation /vs/ Crescent emphasis on places; 2. Seductive and promotional games /vs/ Planned framework of urban policies; 3. A living less incorporated in the market /vs/ A market more at the centre of local economy; 4. Lack of public opinion /vs/ Improvement of a city collective image. Arnaldo Bagnasco, Luigi Bobbio and Giuseppe Sergi discuss over these paradoxes.
