Abstract

With the English expression «Future is back», a sort of slogan for the future, the connotation is that of the imaginary universe of mid-20th-century science fiction, mostly North American, when the future, from the cinema to urban design, was inscribed in every project. Today, this return to the future is imagined by all large cities interested in breaking into the market of lure and appeal. Following the termination in progress, the acceleration of transport and the means of communication then imposed competitiveness on cities, so that they could reinvent themselves as cities of the future, capable of both captivating and maintaining their position. Each metropolis, region or city has been forced to rethink its own future as a project, in terms of both image and process, whilst working on long-term scenarios.
