This article discusses the China’s urbanization processes starting from the new towns under construction in various regions of the Country. Through the redefinition of the processes that are providing material and symbolic form to places, new towns are taken as litmus tests that absorb and reverberate the characteristics and the contradictions of the Chinese urbanization processes, beyond the exceptionality of demographic data. Questioning the Chinese new towns is thus a way to question what cities are (and what they have become), in China as elsewhere.
Keywords: New towns; China’s urbanization processes; contemporary city
