The urban park represents a traditional area of the city, whereas the airport has only recently gained influence as urban space due to its variety of meanings. Both a traditional place and a new urban space highlight four aspects that refer to the city as a whole which is marked by: 1) a growing privatization of spaces and functions; 2) the pervasiveness of consumption as fundamental practice of social action; 3) multiple though increasingly provisional relationships; 4) a growing social need for safety.
Keywords: Safety, control, park, urban spaces, airport, Olbia.
