Keywords:, Lodz, public space, memory, aesthetic experience, aesthetic qualities
AbstractThe dramatic destruction of a large part of the Old Town in Lodz committed by the Nazis was compounded by the communist authorities that removed all the traces of its form and function.

I'm going to point out the complex, contextual aspects of this experience and to emphasize the role of analysis using classical aesthetic qualities. The main task is to try to understand what kind of revitalization could transform this empty territory into the place
