Research output: Contribution to conferenceOtherpeer-review

Abstract

The increasing of international migratory flows is one of the main socio-cultural phenomena withinpost-modern city. According to Soja post-metropolis is the spatial result of new socio-spatialtransformations of the cities that is characterized by a high and new level of socio-economicfragmentation. In relation to these phenomena, social polarization of urban space has given way to an“unstructured” and “dispersed” social geometry. The globalization processes and the deep socioeconomictransformations, as well as the enlargement of the European Union, are at the heart of acomplex system of interdependent factors that have changed the relationship between countries of originand countries of destination of migratory flows. The aim of this paper is to explore the relationshipbetween foreigners and Italian post-metropolitan areas, by studying phenomena of immigrants' spatialdispersion compared with the main cities, which are considered as catalysts of migratory flows.
