Nurant is a team project. We keep on describing ourselves as an illustration design magazine
but actually we have crossed the border of the printed page to create relationships, not only a magazine.
This issue is about cities, not the ones created by city planners but the cities redefined by the people living there. Green Cities, Smart Cities: they are no longer empty words, they are becoming real experiences and changing the way we live in the urban areas. Thanks to technology and its capability of adjusting to the environment. But also thanks to the initiative of the city’s inhabitants, who decided to find new destinations to the vacant urban areas and took the responsibility of managing a small part of the world with the purpose to improve it. In order to investigate these themes we asked the collaboration of professionals who deal with them every day. In this issue you will find more texts than usual but for sure not less images.
