Abstract

The processes of metropolitanization must explain if and how they concern some specific areas, how and if they primarily concern networks, hubs and nodes, pushing into the background the immediate territories of the metropolis. We assume that small-sized areas, in particular rural zones, could constitute a level of implementation of metropolitan processes. The study area for the empirical analysis reported here is the Regional Natural Reserve of Luberon. The phenomenon of diffuse metropolitanization is both appreciated in comparison to standard and innovative urban forms. The analyses of the structuring and the functioning of this rural area highlight the emergence of new patterns of urbanity and new territorial-type configuration, as the \"rural metropolis\". The notion of intensity and a set of social representations found the argumentation.
