Chapter Summary

This work has led to develop the hypotheses that had been formulated during earlier research, and it has enriched the image, it had formed of a conscious organization of space along the Mediterranean coast in various Arab countries. In Città, Materia del Tempo it attempts to trace the extraordinary affinities between these ancient, founding realities - built with much of what we find in the urban and architectonic organization of Tunis Medina, yet without being able to detect a common identity in the material configuration of these different cities. If the measured drawing of any Arab-Muslim city in North Africa or the Near East are examined, one can see that next to the simple and straight impasses there are others which are fragmented and branch off at various points. This is the potentially boundless net cast by this civilization, materially and culturally, over the changing geography of its own affirmation.
