Abstract

Infrastructures in their various forms constitute the network through which the transmission of knowledge takes place within metropolitan cities, in addition to physical exchanges. Big cities have long been recognized as important breeding grounds for creative production and cultural innovation. This creativity, which makes the big city competitive in comparison with other realities of a similar level, has a direct correspondence with the cultural level of the city itself, measurable through the number of people who graduate. Culture and creativity, in turn, determine the capacity for innovation and consequently high levels of productivity and wealth. Economic studies have shown that the city is not a simple concentration of individuals, but a complex environment rich in interrelationships that favors the creation of new ideas and consequently new businesses.
