Abstract

The paper reviews the current literature on mega events, namely the Olympic Games, underlining the relationship between the city and the major event, which mainly involves two conflicting visions of mega events. In fact, there are two opposing literary perspectives, which investigate the evolution, or rather, changes with regards to urban transformation generated by the Olympic Games. Thus, the review provides a critical analysis and discussion of the urban transformations of a host city in terms of re-generation, restyling, renewal or the decay and degradation of territories and cities.
