Journey into the archipelago of third places

Inherited from the land crisis, and “boosted” by the health crisis during the pandemic, third places have become laboratories for the city of tomorrow, addressing issues of land, ownership, the common good, innovation, new uses, work and the economy, ecology, hospitality and accommodation, and encounters in the broadest sense. On a national scale, the demands of elected representatives and the projects of coalitions of local players have gained momentum, and third places have become a social phenomenon.
