I Sistemi Locali del Lavoro nell'interpretazione dell'organizzazione territoriale: fondamenti teorici e limiti ontologici


Author Info




[ITALIANO] La necessita' di riaprire il dibattito sull'individuazione delle aree funzionali (i Sistemi o Mercati Locali del Lavoro in Italia - SLL) e di rivederne l'architettura operativa viene oramai sostenuta da numerosi studiosi. Un'operazione preliminare rispetto a tale finalita' Š quella di ripercorrere la genesi dei SLL per capire quale sia stato il costrutto teorico che ne ha ispirato la formalizzazione e verificarne la pertinenza interpretativa nel tempo. Almeno inizialmente, quindi a cavallo fra gli anni '70 e gli anni '80, i SLL sembrano essere in grado di cogliere alcune forme emergenti di organizzazione territoriale, in particolare quelle distrettuali. Col passare del tempo, pero', il territorio si riorganizza secondo modelli urbani, rendendo meno pertinente la validita' interpretativa dei SLL. Ô oramai evidente che, prima di modificare la procedura di regionalizzazione funzionale dell'Istat, bisogna rivederne l'ancoraggio teorico. La categoria di "citta'" potrebbe rappresentare il costrutto teorico di riferimento. ;[ENGLISH] The need to reopen the debate on the identification of functional areas has by now been claimed by several scholars. The aim of this article is to give a contribution to this debate by first describing the genesis of Local Labour Systems (SLL) in order to understand the theoretical construct that has inspired their formalization and verify its interpretative pertinence throughout time. The SLL's seemed to be able to capture emerging forms of territorial organization, particularly the districtual ones, at the turn of the '70s and '80s. Over time, however, the process of territorial reorganization in urban models, affected its validity. To overcome this problem, the concept of functional areas has to be anchored to a different theoretical construct. The concept of city might help us in this way.
