Abstract [en]

Today, it has become increasingly common to theme new housing areas or even entire towns. A recurrent theme is the ‘traditional’ European small town, sometimes with nationalistic overtones. This article explores the phenomena of theming and discusses what the demand for nostalgic small town life stands for.
