                                               The station: a place to love or a place to live

The main topic of Nicola's article was the city station and all kind of problems linked to this place.
In Perugia the train station it's not a nice place:it's set in the middle of the city so it's affected by problems such as traffic, pollution, the presence of a lot of homeless people;it has often been theatre of a lot of urban struggles between people of different nationalities. However in Nicola's opinion it still retains great fascination because it is a meeting point for different cultures.
Fortunately the situation is not the same in every city:Kolbuszowa has just a small station, not modern but quite clean, as Anna and Jolanta said; it's a place where usually students meet their friend before and after school, they sit and talk while they're waiting for the bus or the train.
Marta, Kasia, Dorota,Marzena and Mateusz agree that:Kolbuszowa station it's not a special place, it's only a waiting place, well made and sufficiently confortable, but nothing more than that.
Also in Huelva, says Ivan, the station is not a very important place, set in a suburban part of the city, so only frequented by people who really need to stay in that place.
I think the problems about our stations should be solved: being built in a central part of the city, they are an unavoidable passage for people that need to move from one part of the city to another, so it's a meeting point for a lot of people but also a sort of "fighting place" between different cultures; moreover, not rarely the news talks about aggressions taking place there.
It's not really a safe place, especially late in the afternoon and evening, even because it's often not well lightened, but it's necessary to pass through it to move.
The station should be an important part of the city both from a pratical and from a social point of view beacause it's a sort of presentation card of the city: it's the first place you see when you arrive and the last you see when you leave.
