Building the identity of Casablanca delves back in time. Based on history and myth in equal parts, this map is an evocation of the experience and memory of a city. Tracing the mobility of its inhabitants and the metamorphosis of its neighborhood, it becomes the portrait of a city whose evolution has occurred through transhumance and mutation.
