Abstract: The paper introduces Henri Lefèbvre's concepts of terrorism and terrorist society in its relations with the contemporary world. Central Lefèbvrian concepts such as everyday life, bureaucratic society of organized consumption and its coercive mechanisms, and the urban society taken as space of openness, a possibility of unfolding/overcoming virtual contemporary terrorism. The paper presents considerations about current terrorist problems by analyzing the present scenario-and the urban society in particular-as a superimposition of terrorisms: terror attacks and the logic proper to the reproduction of a super-repressive society. The openness is thus discussed from both a Lefèbvrian conceptual inspiration and a possible dialogue with recent works of Néstor Garcia Canclini, James Holston, and Noam Chomsky.
