Ilaria Lupo intervenes with an interview on the new capital of Lebanon. In spring 2015, Executive Magazine had published an article - an April's fools joke - on this new global city to come, that was mediated by other papers. Maneuvering the stunt made by the magazine, Lupo takes the concept to another degree of reality.
