In this fifth book of the OMB series, we aim to address the argument ‘city and its image’ a highly-debated topic that remains a relevant argument in several Eastern European cities. Our example is the new Kosova capital—Prishtina— which presents the opportunity for a paradigmatic case study. A new cycle of 33 PhD students has focused on developing research strategies around the concept of ‘Images of a city to be rediscovered’. We are aware that this is an over discussed topic, but this collection of issues seeks to avoid being considered a banalisation of research that was developed during the 1960s (LYNCH, 1960). Rather, it seeks to represent an additional piece of a mosaic that investigates the cities of the new generation.
