The intent is to get through the historical elements, the understanding of what we call a political territoriality. Idea of self-country that ranks "inside" and "outside" the territories, "through" time, defined here "temps-signifié". crucial analytical / methodological practices to locate a self-collective (de) structure, through time, its territories, explaining many of the contradictions and character of the city lusa.
