A change in military thinking is taking place these very days, in which the military understands that future wars will take place in cities. If in the past symmetrical warfare was conducted by state militaries in the open fields, today militaries are fighting enclaves of resistance that withdraw ever deeper into the density of the urban fabric. ‘Walking through walls’ is the military tactic of tearing down holes in the fa├žades of people’s homes (and the walls between rooms) in order to expand the battle field from the public to the private space.

Matteo Rubbi, ‘River (Eridanus)’ (2013)

Eridu was an ancient city in south Mesopotamia along the Euphrates, one of the first cities ever. Eridanus was a small river close to Athens, and it was the old name of the Po. It was said that Eridanus was the Nile or Ganges. Eridanus is a constellation about a mythical river, a sort of old paradigm for all the rivers.
