A by-product of today’s multi-faceted economy, based on finance as much as production, is the delineation of the new landscapes of living and residing, as the economy replaces politics in conferring meaning on places. The virtually unstoppable march of the capitalist religion is laying waste the social and territorial fabric. However, the decline is not homogeneous and uniform. It conceals interstices and fractures, things discarded and forgotten, that can inform different paths and potential ways of existing. Little heresies undermining the prevailing orthodoxy. Arenas where new practices, forms of life, and experimental collectives have the potential to generate territorial initiatives that break out of the recognised institutional frameworks.
