The ageing and the mobility within the Florence metropolitan area Objectives The recent forms of social and economic organization over the territory highlight the increasing trend of the degree of spatial interconnection and interdependence. An adequate way of studying a city or a region consists therefore in considering it as a part of a wider network of spatial relations. In this work we study the ageing and the mobility within the Florence metropolitan area (constituted by the counties of Firenze, Pistoia and Prato). Methods and Results Firstly we look at the evolution of the demographic structural characteristics over time and space and, secondly, at the mobility within the area through a spatial interaction model. Conclusions The findings highlight the existence of a specific population profile characterised mainly by families with children: they reside in the South-East area of the metropolitan area but, at the same time, they daily commute to Firenze and Prato for working and study reasons.
