    Abstract

The present here analyzes focus on various aspects of culture - literature and feuilleton, theater, film, broadcasting, architecture, city marketing and event culture - which describe the identity of the city in the interwar period, as well as today. Both in the twenties and in the nineties culture is understood as a response to a particular of constraints and opportunities new beginning. In some areas will also be aware of ties in the years after the turn of the quote in the interwar period to a metropolitan tradition to underpin the right to a continuity of this tradition.
