Quando la crisi viene dal mare. Sfide per la pianificazione strategica tra modelli di sviluppo e convivenza alternativi a Mazara del Vallo

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


[automatically translated] The paper offers an account of the strategic planning process that was fulfilled in Mazara del Vallo, a Sicilian city whose development model is characterized by the dominant role of maritime economy and the presence of one of the largest North African immigrant communities in the South. Through a substantial investment on the participation, the planning process has prompted local communities to reflect on the contours of an alternative model of development of the city, based on increased urban quality and new forms of civil and cultural coexistence. Through the description of the case, the paper proposes some more general reflections on the role and methodologies of strategic planning in fragile contexts socially and economically.
