L'unico sviluppo possibile?

Shanghai di notte è spettacolare, anche perchè di giorno, nelle giornate estive, è semplicemente invivibile. La temperatura è infernale, il cielo plumbeo sembra che ti caschi addosso appiattendo i colori e le ombre, l'umidità preme sul corpo fino a farlo scoppiare...

Di notte ritornano i colori delle luci al neon, che nei quartieri moderni cercano di fare concorrenza a quelle di Ginza, proponendo il solito ed unico sviluppo che accomuna tutte le grandi metropoli del pianeta. L'uscita dalla povertà e il cammino verso il benessere, impetuoso in Cina, deve sempre passare per il consumismo e i loghi delle grandi corporations, che ormai sono onnipresenti? E' propio questo l'unico sviluppo possibile?

 

Nanjing Road at nightNanjing Road at nightNanjing Road (Chinese: 南京路) is the main shopping street of Shanghai, China, and is one of the world's busiest shopping streets. Today's Nanjing Road comprises two sections, Nanjing Road East and Nanjing Road West. In some contexts, "Nanjing Road" refers only to what was pre-1945 Nanjing Road, today's Nanjing Road East, which is largely pedestrianised. Prior to 1949, the road's English name was rendered "Nanking Road" using the standard romanization of the time.
