The trend of people settling in the city makes them, in the current outlook, to face the great challenges of today and there- fore, its political deciders that have today, new and more demanding goals of government, have assumed a crucial role to promote urban schedules, able to generate a profile of the city that makes it wanted [Giddens09].
