What affects the specific of the city? Can we say that the history has the most important influence to urban identity? In this aspect, do we support placing the commemorative monuments in common spaces? Designers working in public areas know that they can't ignore the historical background. We could follow or deny but always we are engaged in dialogue. Therefore public spaces become natural environment for social design. Creating interactions, giving the information, involving and inclusing – that makes the public design successful. At this point the story of Chopin's benches in Warsaw and the Chopin's year 2010 begins.
