For many years the South has been at the center of attention of the public opinion, the completion of the bridge over the Stretto di Messina, as a "resolution" passage of the connecting corridor between mainland Italy and the Sicily. That's the expression of a territorial vision of Europe based on building a network that is essential for economic exchange and north-south transport would also open a brand new relationship between continental Europe and the countries of the North African area. That vision has largely overshadowed the dynamics of the southern coastal city of our country; it’s actually proposing, on the one hand, a projected growth of settlements on the seas that surround it (Tyrrhenian, Adriatic and Ionian) to which they are very diverse forms of expression and waterfront uses of multiform coastline, on the other, a system of landing places for a substantial internal mobility (for goods and people that do not underestimate the contribution from tourism-related water) in the Mediterranean bacin. The changes related to these new forms of urban growth would change the structure of many cities in the South, Mediterranean recover ancient paths of memory, creating new destinations: they appear involved, the traditional settlement patterns in the South, the same system of connections of short and medium distance as well as assumptions that bind to the construction of local platforms and logistics. In fact, in the "long waiting" of the bridge, there are certain situations that are heavily penalizing the South in terms of production and the same quality of life of the people, but we are also witnessing the growth of short-term initiatives aimed at reducing inconveniences and create new forms of relationships.Some emerging questions. Is rising up the possibility of a different relationship with the sea that make the Eurocentric vision less effective? Are there determining alternative uses of coastal areas? Do we highlight new conveniences for transport solutions that bring shadows radicals assumed to origin? It is considered advisable the "cultural review”, before operating the assumptions above and at least the same should be the subject of critical attention.The changes related to these new forms of urban growth would change the structure of many cities in the South, Mediterranean recover ancient paths of memory, creating new destinations: they appear involved, the traditional settlement patterns in the South, the same system of connections of short and medium distance as well as assumptions that bind to the construction of local platforms and logistics.The contribution will develop for the Biennial of Towns and Town Planners in Europe focuses on the changes that are driving in the cities of the South (and especially its southern parts) in particular is to highlight the connection not yet sufficient depth between the vision-type transport terms "a unique system of relationships and the European contribution, to some extent but still innovative alternative, which flows to the reorganization of transport from urban and territorial policies, more often an expression of local needs and not properly coordinated, but nevertheless substantial, for somewhat irreversible.
