The territorial and social metamorphosis of the Inner Peripheries

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The paper debates the theme of the Inner Peripheries that, in their complexity and diversity, represent those territories in which a rethinking of the rural/urban, society/territory, society/economy, territory/production and community/landscape relationship is increasingly urgent for the sustainability, to interrupt the process of abandonment and to strengthen and network the small experiences of innovation that are taking place and that are showing that they can be welcoming and functional places, capable of realizing new local centralities with global attractiveness.With the aim of opening a debate on the role that inner peripheries can take in a multi-scale territorial scenario and on the theme of planning tools and policies in the field of local development, the paper proposes some points for reflection, practices in place and interprets the inner peripheries as territorial archipelagos, fertile territories on which to experiment new centralities and to activate networking actions to produce attractiveness and compete in the supra-local context.
