The article explores the cultural dimensions of the landscape of post-revolutionary Romanian cities, with an application on Iasi as a study case. The relatively rapid succession of contrast political regimes determined the development of a mixture of landscapes, sometimes atypical. Following the intervention of the state and the non-involvement of citizens, there were dramatic changes in the old city centers, so-called historical centers gathering, generally, the elements considered representative of the population for the city’s image. These zones are present today in the form of warped spaces, of desecrated spaces. Starting from the results of some field surveys, the article shows that the urban landscape of Iasi remains above all a cultural landscape, this picture being present in the collective mind, with the ability to hide or at least to leave behind all tributaries of modernization and globalization imperfections.
