Abstract

Behind the city of stone lies the social representation of the city, carved in the mind rather than on the ground. Urban historians are accustomed to describing the former and tend to consider it the “real” city. Access to the other city, the “shadow city”, is in fact difficult, despite the apparent ease of such an effort. The author attempts to present a small portrait of the moral geography of a large French city, Lyon, to demonstrate how this hidden dimension is just as “real” as the city of stone.
