Whenever I have a shell or another interpreter of course they keep

But if I for example call
M-x shell again it means that I want the shell in the directory of the current
buffer, not that old forgotten position.

`C-u M-x shell RET' will give you a new shell buffer named *shell*<2>
whose default directory is the same as the buffer from which you called
it.  Subsequent shells will be named *shell*<3>, *shell*<4>, *shell*<5>

That's also true for python interpreter or any other interpreter, is
there a way to solve this problem automatically?

No, each interpreter starts comint in its own way.

Maybe a second call should kill and restart instead of visiting the
already open?

Happy hacking,
