I think this Hurban Immersion is very personal and consequently what we feel by the 5 sense depends a lot on hour life experience where we have lived, for how long....
So I tought I have to speack before about a part of my life.
I come from Figline Valdarno a town of 20.000 people and I lived most of my life in this town. In figline there is all what do you need: 4 supermarket, 2 shopping center, parks, 1 square etc.
I can cross the city walking in 30 minutes. A village in a Valley in the center between the hills.
Later I did the erasmus a Malaga, I didn't find much difference for most of the sense apart for the taste and the lack of the Italian Dish.
Later I lived for 9 months in Valencia, where i had the first approach to the life of the city, I immediately felt a big difference in terms of hearing, for the continuous noise of the cars, from the group of people, from the metro, so in addition to the taste that i already felt in Malaga, in Valencia I also met difference in terms of hearing and finally the smell. The hearing and the smell that returned to the sense i had in Figline thanks for the place Turia (the ricver that crosses Valencia) then these two sense returned into tranquillity.
And now Barcelona..
I can imagine it is difficult to analyze the real Barcelona because of the situation but at the same time i felt the city because of the big difference with my Figline.
After the lock down I started to exploring the city where i could fill the needs for these 2 sense hearing and smell.
For compare these palces i choose another 3 that i totally missing in my city: Port, Gothic, Metro Station. And these are the differences i found.
