Summary: The divided city territorializes inequalities and fragments its spaces, legitimized by a hegemonic discourse that serves the dominant ideas and values. From its physically and socially fragmented spaces it chooses those to illuminate, to show as the image of the city of spectacle, and those which will cast in the shade and will be invisible. By mitigating subjectivities and rejecting deviant behavior and discourses, it builds, shapes and frames the city it wants to be and let be seen. In the limits WHERE visibility ceases, the city is, however, in continuous production. The shadow that covers the marginalized territories also reveals them since their practices escape the comprehension of the generalizer gaze. Through the marginal culture, underprivileged areas spread their shadow over the illuminated areas of the city, painting with its subjectivity, giving new meanings, disputing its spaces and speeches. Under theoretical contributions of Michel de Certeau and Milton Santos, mainly, we aim to discuss the unequal distribution of the right to speech, to visibility and to the city itself; we want to highlight the "ways of making" of the "opaque spaces", which dispute the city through its narratives, allowing new gazes over it, and other stories to be told. Here we defend the right to speech as a right to the city, translated into effective struggles for the deconstruction of social stigmas.
Keywords: Opaque Spaces. Narrative. Marginal Culture. Right to the city.
