Urban past, present & future
- Serie: reviews 2011
The idea of a Capital of Culture is not a franchise product which can be put on any given region like a hat, regardless of its structural situation. Each European Capital of Culture is unique and different from the others. But of course there are also several similarities. And they all want to accomlish one thing at least: sustainability.
