Abstract

In Inhabited by 3 million people and 4 million with its surroundings, at first sight Casablanca might seem an international and cosmopolitan metropolis. However, after closer experience, Casa (as friendly nicknamed by her inhabitants), reveals to be a city tightly locked to her Berber origins in a paradox of nomad urbanism. The population of “free people” (as, in fact, the etymologic meaning of the word “Berber” suggests) continues to maintain customs and traditions of North-African nomads. In the most ancient Medina, surrounded by high wall in red raw ground, the white buildings, from which the city took her name from, create a labyrinth of streets and dead-ends animated with full life where everything lives the happening present.
