quote: 'community life (comprising general or partial assemblies) does not prohibit class struggle. on the contrary. violent contrasts between wealth and poverty, conflicts between the powerful and the oppressed, do not prevent either attachment to the city nor an active contribution to the beauty of the oeuvre. in the urban context, struggles between fractions, groups and classes strengthen the feeling of belonging. political confrontations between the 'minuto popolo' the 'popolo grosso', the aristocracy and the oligarchy, have the city as their battle ground, their stake. these groups are rivals in their love of the city.'
