Processes of multi-scalar regional urbanization are occurring worldwide. Such processes are clearly distinguishable from those of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries due to the shifting concepts of both the city and the metropolis. International literature highlights how what we have historically associated with the idea of cities has long been subjected to consistent reconfiguration, which involves stressing some of the typical features of the idea of "cityness". Post-Metropolitan Territories: Looking for a New Urbanity is the product of a research project funded by the Italian Ministry for Education, Universities and Research (MIUR). It constitutes a thorough overview of a country that is one of Europe's most diverse in terms of regional development and performance: Italy. This book brings together case studies of a number of Italian cities and their hinterlands and looks at new forms of urbanization, exploring themes of sustainability, industrialization, de-industrialization, governance, city planning and quality of life. This volume will be of great interest to academics and students who study regional development, economic geography and urban studies, as well as civil servants and policymakers in the field of spatial planning, urban policy, territorial policies and governance.
Situated Practices of Strategic Planning

All over the world societies are facing a number of major problems. New developments, challenges and opportunities cause these issues and yet cases tell us that traditional spatial planning responses and tools are often insufficient to tackle these problems and challenges. Situated Practices of Strategic Planning draws together examples from across the globe – from France to Australia; from Nigeria to the United States, as it observes international comparisons of the strategic planning process. Many approaches and policies used today fail to capture the dynamics of urban/regional transformation and are more concerned with maintaining an existing social order than challenging and transforming it. Stewarded by a team of highly regarded and experienced researchers, this book gives a synthetic view of the process of change and frames future directions of development. It is unique for its combination of analysis of international case studies and reflection on critical nodes and features in strategic planning. This volume will be of interest to students who study regional planning, academics, professional planners, and policy makers.

This book explores the role of cities and the urban–rural linkages in spurring innovation embedded in spatial planning, strategic and economic planning, and decision support systems. In particular, the contributions examine the complexity of the current transitional phase towards achieving smart, inclusive and sustainable growth, and investigate the post-2020 UE cohesion policy.The main topics include: Innovation dynamics and smart cities; Urban regeneration – community-led and PPP; Inland and urban area development; Mobility, accessibility, infrastructures; Heritage, landscape and Identity; and Risk management, Environment and Energy.The book includes a selection of articles accepted for presentation and discussion at the 3rd International Symposium New Metropolitan Perspectives (ISTH2020), held at the University of Reggio Calabria, Italy on 22–25 May 2018. The symposium, which addressed the challenge of local knowledge and innovation dynamics towards territory attractiveness, hosted the final event of the MAPS-LED project under Horizon2020 – MSCA RISE.
Politiche urbane per Roma

Il libro contiene i risultati del lavoro di ricercatori e docenti di Sapienza e di altre università e centri di ricerca pubblici, aggregatisi attorno al nodo romano di [email protected] Nazionale di Studi per le Politiche Urbane che, dal 2016, ha avviato l’“Osservatorio-Roma”: un’iniziativa multidisciplinare e indipendente di studio delle politiche urbane nella Capitale. A fronte dei media, oltre che delle polemiche fra gli attori politici, che affermano che la città è in regresso, l’Osservatorio, con questo suo primo prodotto, prova a offrire materiali utili per fondare riflessioni collettive e plurali sul merito dei problemi pubblici, sulle azioni con cui questi vengono – o potrebbero essere – affrontati. Non soluzioni preconfezionate, quindi, né ricette per specifiche decisioni, bensì materiali frutto dell’osservazione e del monitoraggio che mirano a individuare fattori di successo e criticità delle azioni pubbliche e dei loro esiti, facendo emergere implicazioni e difficoltà, tecniche e politiche, dell’ideare e perseguire strategie di trasformazione e sviluppo della città. A questo fine, la produzione di conoscenze sulla concretezza operativa delle questioni, delle azioni e delle pratiche politiche e amministrative, spesso condotte in condizioni di urgenza, è ancorata a una contestualizzazione critica di una varietà di implicazioni, a partire dal peso esercitato da rappresentazioni e azioni del passato. I primi prodotti qui presentati confermano le potenzialità del confronto fra punti di vista diversi e complementari sull’agenda (i problemi e le soluzioni puntali, già all’ordine del giorno o possibili, le strategie di trasformazione della città, esplicite o praticate implicitamente) e sui processi dell’azione pubblica (l’assunzione di decisioni e le pratiche quotidiane dell’azione di governo) nell’ipotesi che ricerca e confronto pubblico sui temi e i problemi della città possano servire ad affrontare le sfide della Capitale, rendendola, nel tempo, meno debole.

As a main urban centre of one of the most dynamic European regions, Milan is a key location from which to study narratives of innovations and contemporary productions – old and new manufacturing, tertiary and consumptive sectors, creative and cultural economy – and investigate their influence both on spatial patterns and urban policy agenda. Accordingly, this book explores the contentious geographies of innovation, productions and working spaces, both empirically and theoretically in a city that, since the beginning of the 2000s, has been involved in a process of urban change, with relevant spatial and socio-economic effects, within an increasingly turbulent world economy. Through this analysis, the book provides an insight into the complexity of contemporary urban phenomena beyond a traditional metropolitan lens, highlighting issues such as rescaling, urban decentralization and recentralization, extensive urban transformation and shrinkage and molecular urban regeneration. This book is a valuable resource for academics, researchers and scholars focusing on Urban Studies such as Urban Policy, Urban Planning, Urban Geography, Urban Economy and Urban Sociology.

Urban Planning as a Trading Zone

'Trading zone' is a concept introduced by Peter Galison in his social scientific research on how scientists representing different sub-cultures and paradigms have been able to coordinate their interaction locally. In this book, Italian and Finnish planning researchers extend the use of the concept to different contexts of urban planning and management, where there is a need for new ideas and tools in managing the interaction of different stakeholders. The trading zone concept is approached as a tool in organizing local platforms and support systems for planning participation, knowledge production, decision making and local conflict management. In relation to the former theses of communicative planning theory that stress the ideals of consensus, mutual understanding and universal reason, the 'trading zone approach', outlined in this book, offers a different perspective. It focuses on the potentiality to coordinate locally the interaction of different stakeholders without requiring the deeper sharing of understandings, values and motives between them. Galison’s commentary comes in the form of the book’s final chapter.

There are now more than three hundred city-regions around the world with populations greater than one million. These city-regions are expanding vigorously, and they present many new and deep challenges to researchers and policy-makers in both the more developed and less developed parts of the world. The processes of global economic integration and accelerated urban growth make traditional planning and policy strategies in these regions increasingly inadequate, while more effective approaches remain largely in various stages of hypothesis and experimentation. 'Global City-Regions' represents a multifaceted effort to deal with the many different issues raised by these developments. It seeks at once to define the question of global city-regions and to describe the internal and external dynamics that shape them; it proposes a theorization of global city-regions based on their economic and political responses to intensifying levels of globalization; and it offers a number of policy insights into the severe social problems that confront global city-regions as they come face to face with an economically and politically neoliberal world. At a moment when globalization is increasingly subject to critical scrutiny in many different quarters, this book provides a timely overview of its effects on urban and regional development, one of its most important (but perhaps least understood) corollaries. The book also offers a series of nuanced visions of alternative possible futures.

One of the most troubling consequences of the 2008 global financial collapse was the midstream abandonment of several large-scale speculative urban and suburban projects. The resulting scars on the landscape, large subdivisions with only marked-out plots and half-finished roads, are the subject of The City That Never Was, an eye-opening look at what happens when development, particularly what the author calls "speculative urbanization" is out of sync with financial reality. Presenting historical and recent examples from around the world—from the sprawl of the US Sun Belt and the unoccupied towns of western China, to the "ghost estates" of Ireland—and focusing on case studies in Spain, Marcinkoski proposes an ecologically based model in place of the capricious economic and political factors that typically drive development today.

Il volume raccoglie i contributi culturali di sessanta relatori dell'omonimo Convegno Nazionale che ha preso le mosse dalla designazione della città di Reggio Calabria quale Città Metropolitana, realtà istituzionale che sollecita analisi ed approfondimenti in vaste aree culturali. Questo riconoscimento si inserisce peraltro in un contesto politico-sociale purtroppo caratterizzato da una preoccupante recessione civile e culturale. Comunque, pur non delineandosi la concretizzazione della previsione normativa in termini prossimi, è avvertito coralmente il convincimento che la città di Reggio Calabria sarà proiettata verso un impatto con uno straordinario intreccio di valori e di interessi del bacino del Mediterraneo. È dunque avvertita l'esigenza di una rinnovata lettura interpretativa di quest'area geopolitica ("Conoscere il Mediterraneo, oggi" CAP. I). L'esplorazione in profondità della straordinaria ricchezza culturale, che quest'area ha prodotto, conservato e diffuso nei secoli ("Umanesimo Mediterraneo" CAP. II), tende appunto alla sua riproposizione all'interesse internazionale proprio da parte di una Città che nella sua nuova fisionomia istituzionale ("Città Metropolitana" CAP. III) può fondatamente proporsi come un centro di costante approfondimento, di ricerca e di diffusione nella società globalizzata degli invincibili valori della Humanitas Mediterranea, piattaforma ineludibile di ogni disegno politico per la tutela della dignità dell'uomo. Il contributo che l'Associazione "Giornate Mediterranee" ambisce ad assicurare alle istituzioni pubbliche consiste appunto nel tentativo di individuare ed esaltare propedeutiche, sommarie problematiche, il cui definitivo articolarsi esplorativo non può che essere affidato al mondo accademico e quindi alla valutazione ed alle definitive scelte politiche. Non si è ritenuto di stendere una tessitura argomentativa illustrativa delle interconnessioni logiche ricorrenti tra le tematiche trattate nonché delle proiezioni teleologiche attorno al "senso" dell'opera e della sua destinazione, apparendo gli stessi desumibili, oltre che dalla razionale collocazione cronologica dei saggi medesimi, maggiormente dalla sistematica lettura interpretativa dell'intero testo. Il coinvolgimento dell'Università "Mediterranea" di Reggio Calabria, dell'Università degli Studi di Messina, dell'Università per Stranieri "Dante Alighieri" di Reggio Calabria e la partecipazione di autorevoli esponenti dell'Università "Sapienza" di Roma, dell'Università "Bocconi" di Milano e dell'Università "Cà Foscari" di Venezia legittimano il convincimento che "un primo passo" in tal senso è stato veramente tentato. Un tentativo, dunque, riecheggiante nella nostra mente l'incoraggiamento di Paul Valéry: "Le vent se lève... II faut tenter de vivre!" (Giuseppe Tuccio) Il volume è a cura di Giuseppe Tuccio
