In this form, an area focuses on a specific cultural sector, for example the motion picture industry in Los Angeles. More frequently, US districts are related to the form of the metropolitan cultural district as described by Santagata (2002; 2004). This form uses arts and cultural services to attract people, to counteract economic industrial decline and to design a new image of the city.
