Cities' magical attitude
Riccardo proposed in his
article the combination of the concept of “magical", used in this
case with the meaning of evocative, with some places in the city.
Referring to Perugia, he talked about the historical center, were
young people usually go during the weekend to meet their friend,
have a walk, shop around…
Each city has such “magical” places; they can be more
than one and different for every person:as Jolanta said, everybody
has different tastes and likes different places, so the definition
of magical can’t be univocal and, above all, it doesn’t depend on
the place but on the persons.
Jolanta and Anna say a magical place in Kolbuasowa,
which population can be proud of, it’s a Folk Museum, including a
lot of suggestive buildings from the 16th or 17th century; other
ones are the ponds, a place where it’s nice to sit down surrounded
by nature and look at the sunset, when the sun rays are reflected by
water and give amazing effects.
Other people, as for example Julie, hasn't found a particular place
in the city yet, while Lesterine has found it in the middle of the
forest near the village rather than in the urban setting.
As Anna said, a magical place musn't necessarly be outside:it can
also be a club, for example the "K2", where young people in
Kolbuasowa like to meet during the weekend.
Finally there's also someone who considers the whole
city a magic place: Kasia likes her city under almost all aspects.
I think what makes a place "magical" is obviously the setting and
the aspect of the place in itself, but especially the particular
atmosphere it's characterized by, and the memories we associate it
with; a lot of places have a potential magical charm, but it's not
sufficient to define them like that: we are what makes them really
