Centri storici delle città sud-europee e immigrazione. Un nodo di contraddizioni

Gentileschi, Maria Luisa (2004) Centri storici delle città sud-europee e immigrazione. Un nodo di contraddizioni. Geotema, 23 .



The historic cores of southern European cities have become a special case of immigration in the urban areas of Europe. Often commercial ports and in any case cosmopolitan cities at the world’s busiest and oldest crossroads, these urban cores have often been by-passed by modern development and are now undergoing difficult renewal processes. These districts have become sensitive areas, where the population changes taking place do not always converge with urban renewal. Immigration flows are now part of the picture, and very delicate issues are at stake, concerning the choice of suitable levels between a laissez-faire policy and a hard line approach. The present paper discusses the main problems associated with renewal process in areas with growing foreign communities. To conclude, the main intervention issues in inner areas are briefly commented.
