The interviews contain anecdotes, the role this square plays in several lifes, what name it should carry and what monuments represent.

To deal with name and name giving is deciding about a place. The ability to name or rename oneself and one’s place is an aspect of ownership, and conquerors have always taken advantage of it. The naming and renaming of landmarks could be a matter of life and death, as well as a way of providing a sense of power and psychological security. It is self-determination.
