  1. I am so glad you posted this! That area was also the site of a big clash between the city government and the youth movement/counter culture (which some people called “our 1968”) who occupied the place in the mid-1970s. People demanded a say in the use of urban space (and a less authoritarian understanding of democracy more generally), which also makes the Arena such a significant place for many Viennese.
