Le trasformazioni urbane nella Yerevan post-sovietica
Note su élite, economia e retorica della continuità
Yerevan underwent a process of radical transformation in the post-Soviet period and in particular since 2000. Many large residential and commercial buildings were built on the city plan designed by Tamanian in the twenties. Yerevan's urban redevelopment has not been painless and without consequences: many buildings have been demolished, residents evicted, and rules that suggest an extractive development have been created. Moreover, the attempt to root urban growth in history has given rise to a progressive simulacrization of the city.
