Hitler’s visit to Paris: a 3-hour tour, reverence for Napoleon and the idea of ​​building a city that surpasses it

No one would have imagined it a few months ago. In June 1940, the Nazis entered Paris. The French War was brief and its result was overwhelming. The Germans invaded Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg. Then they went to France. The calculations of the French command failed. His defensive strategy did not work. They tried to mimic what had happened in the First World War. But the world had changed. What led them to victory in that contest made them …

This partiality is made up of members who pay their dues every day, repeating that nothing can be changed and that if it is changed, that will not work. In Córdoba, a clear example of this was what happened with the change of the seat of government: those who rejected the collapse of the old Casa de las Tejas later ended …

It’s Christmas already at Barcelona City Council

This strange summer, hot but without tourists, in which the feeling of having regained freedom of movement coexists with the fear that in a few months we would be locked up again, was missing a different note, an exotic touch, another point of view.

Paris and Barcelona: two examples that anticipate the death of the car in the big city

Socialist Anne Hidalgo has been re-elected Mayor of Paris after a complicated six-year term. Her eminently environmentalist program has been imposed on that of her conservative rival, Rachida Dati, and stands out for two points: pedestrianization of Paris and more cycling. In fact, it wants to eliminate 72% of the parking spaces in the city. The same is happening in Barcelona, ​​where it is committed to reducing the space that the vehicle occupies to give it to pedestrians and cyclists. …
