Incessant migratory flows move towards nations or cities where they can find better living conditions, driven by economic inequalities, political and social instability, war conflicts and environmental emergencies, and generate real or perceived perturbations in the social and economic organization of territories. The changes in value, social, spatial and economic systems resulting from migration flows were debated during the SIEV conference 'Values Spaces Migrations. Identity and Otherness in the Multicultural City', which took place in October 2020. The study of these phenomena involves many social sciences to which the Italian community of Estimate and Valuation scholars can provide its original contribution. This article aims to outline a picture of the possible intersections between the discipline of estimation and other sciences such as Philosophy of Language, Ethno-psychology, Philosophy of Law, Geography, Urban Planning, Architectural Design, which can lead towards the construction of a common linguistic consensual domain and convergent lines of research to investigate the complexity of issues related to migration. Some intersections concern the recognition of the plurality of identities and the rights of migrants, multicultural sustainability and equity, the role of language in the construction of relationships with the Other and with economic values (private use value, exchange value and social use value). Beginning with the role of language in multicultural society, a 'geography of signification' can be traced that is closely interrelated to other geographies, those of politics, rights, labor, social conflict and property values. These are the spatial and social contexts in which some interesting economic-estimative research has been carried out, even if it is not yet a body of studies capable of representing in a systematic way the differences present in the Italian national territory (e.g. between northern and southern cities/regions). Therefore, the possibilities of initiating both collaborative research and contamination with other social sciences on the need for social inclusion and interculturality, as well as the renewal of the interpretative paradigm and of the operational tools of the estimative discipline to respond to the demand for estimates in the real estate field and for valuation models to support decision-making processes connected to migratory phenomena, remain to be fully explored.
