City makes visible the crisis, it is home to the impoverishment processes that are generating a range of new poors, giving form to the heavy impact they are having on lifestyles and urban experience of the subjects. The public spaces and especially the places of consumption testify these substantial changes that characterize the lives of Italians in the last few years. At the same time, the crisis gives visibility to the city, it increases awareness of the relationship that citizens themselves have with the city, thus further it stimulates the "demand for the city" that often goes beyond the mere level of needs. The crisis strengthens the sense that subjects have about the right to their own cities.

Keywords: City, crisis, everyday life, impoverishment processes, consumption, experience.
