 Abstract:
This chapter relates to the urban life or lives and their frameworks, drawing up the portrait of the city in Egypt today, how the townsmen build their city and their urban life, inhabit these residential and non-residential spaces, live their urbanity... The Egyptian citadinity has a very long history. Today the principal urban centres of Egypt (Cairo, Alexandria) have the rank of megalopolis and the middle-cities know a fast growth. The Egyptian cities are in full physical change, but these changes also relate to the manners of practising them.

This chapter has as hot lines the social structuring of the city (by putting the question of the segregation), the rhythms of the city (and its synchronizations), as well as the question of the differentiated practices of the urban space (in particular according to the social, residential origin and of the gender).
