*Eutopia is the neologism invented in 1516 by the English writer Thomas Moore in his book The Utopia which gives its name to the Imaginary island. Different from utopia whose privative prefix u and the radical topos mean ”a place that does not exist”, different from dystopia whose prefix mean “bad”, eutopia is constructed with the prefix eu-, which means “a place of good”.
