The nocturnal condition

Abstract : As a central field of tension in our society, a space of ideas and last-standing frontier of the city, the ‘night’ has plenty to say to the day’. The night should be open to scientific investigation, to the future, to creativity. The time has arrived to explore the nocturnal archipelago, decode the urban night, discover its actors, its limits, its centers, its margins, its rhythms. In face of pressures resulting from the continuous temporality of the economy and of the system, we should invest in the night, explore the last-standing frontier in the city so as to anticipate conflicts and imagine possible futures of the Urbs and Civitas. We need to place the night in the political agenda and launch a grand debate in favor of more beautiful cities than the ones we live in during the day.
