Abstract

Le economie di agglomerazione giocano un ruolo fondamentale nelle teorie che interpretano la crescita urbana. Tuttavia, analizzando i recenti approcci teorici con un’attenzione particolare, emergono alcune contraddizioni. La letteratura, infatti, spiega la crescita attraverso un concetto statico di economie di agglomerazione, sostenendo che le citta piu grandi ed efficienti, essendo piu attraenti, attrarranno automaticamente la crescita e miglioreranno cosi la performance complessiva del sistema. Questo lavoro cerca di superare tale limite, proponendo un nuovo approccio teorico in grado di spiegare la dinamica nel tempo della produttivita urbana legata alla dimensione. Le aspettative teoriche sono verificate su un campione di 136 luz europee. Tra le determinanti della crescita dell’efficienza urbana, un ruolo importante viene assunto dalla crescita della qualita delle funzioni urbane e dall’ampliamento del sistema urbano in cui la citta risiede.
