Another very interesting and most unique characteristic of Vila Madalena are the streets’ names. They are lyrical names, like: Harmony, Sunflower, Glitter, Wizard, Original and son on. This characteristic promotes some interesting corner’s names like "Harmony with Sunflower" or “Wizard with Glitter”. According to history, these streets were named by students’ suggestions who used to attend the anarchist movement at that time. The idea to have these poetics names for the streets was to break the tradition of always honoring public authorities when naming São Paulo’s streets.

Nowadays, the region has a considering concentration of ateliers, art exhibitions, music festivals and local art. Vanguard shops, music schools and theater schools are also concentrated at Vila Madalena.
