The world is “an enormous canvas on which to draw by walking”, a “surface that is not a white page, but an intricate design of historical and geographical sedimentation on which to simply add one more layer” [1: 150, emphasis mine]. From the ancient footprints of two Australopithecus afarensis in Laetoli (Tanzania) 3.4 millions of years ago to the first steps of Neil Amstrong on the moon in 1969, human beings –and our recent ancestors- have written History by walking. In cities, walking has been the main way of transport until a very few years, supporting the foundations of mobility and urban interactions . Nevertheless, walking is not just a mode of travel through the city.
