In the way opened by Sir Thomas More with his Utopia, and in the following modern centuries, other imaginary cities were described. In the XVIIth Century, the City of the Sun by Tommaso Campanella, must be noticed. The social order and the hierarchy, inspired in astrology, serves to the harmony and success of the collective production, therefore preparing the reduction of the physical effort in the organisation of surviving.
