Abstract

The A. explores the semiotic and political operation of commemorative street names. He sheds light on the procedures of the naming and the renaming of streets. He elaborates on how street names, in addition to their role in the spatial organization and semiotic construction of the city, are also participants in the cultural production of shared past. He uncovers commemorative street names as a powerful mechanism for the legitimation of the sociopolitical order
