Some of the reasons of this particular relation are the urban improvisation, the urgencies of the contemporary life, the development of the terciary economy or the marginalization of the region, but this investigation doesn't want to look just for guilties nor look for reformative solutions. The aim of this project is to understand the reality of this plot, this incorrectlandscape madeof individual lifes and stories.
