    Dallara A. and Rizzi P. Geographic map of sustainability in Italian local systems, Regional Studies . This paper is a quantitative application of the economy--society--environment (ESA) model to Italian provinces. The ESA model is a framework used to describe territorial systems. It is grounded in a theoretical scheme called SEST (socio-economic territorial systems), which connects performances of the local system with socio-economic structure, external economies, public/private strategies, and territorial governance. The ESA model is focused on the three pillars of sustainability: economy, society, and environment. Clusters and rankings are defined and enable a comparison to be made with more homogeneous local systems. An analytical description of the development of the Italian systems is outlined through principal component analysis. Dallara A. et Rizzi P. Une carte géographique de la durabilité des systèmes locaux en Italie, Regional Studies . Cet article cherche à appliquer de façon quantitative le modèle économie--société--environnement (modèle ESA) aux provinces italiennes. Le modèle ESA sert de cadre à la présentation des systèmes territoriaux. Il est fondé sur un schéma théorique de systèmes territoriaux socioéconomiques qui relient la performance du système local à la structure socioéconomique, aux économies externes, aux stratégies publiques/privées, et au gouvernement territorial. Le modèle ESA porte sur les trois piliers de la notion de durabilité: à savoir, l'économie, la société et l'environnement. On définit les grappes et les classements, ce qui permet la comparaison avec des systèmes locaux plus homogènes. A partir de la méthode de composantes principales, on esquisse une présentation analytique du développement des systèmes italiens. Développement durable Système local Méthode de composantes principales Analyse comparative territoriale Dallara A. und Rizzi P. Die geografische Karte der Nachhaltigkeit in italienischen lokalen Systemen, Regional Studies . In diesem Beitrag wird das Wirtschafts-, Gesellschafts- und Umweltmodell in quantitativer Weise auf die italienischen Provinzen angewandt. Das Wirtschafts-, Gesellschafts- und Umweltmodell dient als Rahmen zur Beschreibung von territorialen Systemen. Es beruht auf einem theoretischen Schema mit der Bezeichnung SEST (sozioökonomische Territorialsysteme), das die Leistungen des lokalen Systems mit der sozioökonomischen Struktur, externen Ökonomien, öffentlichen/privaten Strategien und territorialer Regierungsführung verknüpft. Das Wirtschafts-, Gesellschafts- und Umweltmodell konzentriert sich auf die drei Säulen der Nachhaltigkeit: Wirtschaft, Gesellschaft und Umwelt. Es werden Cluster und Rangfolgen definiert, die einen Vergleich mit homogeneren lokalen Systemen ermöglichen. Anhand einer Hauptkomponentenanalyse wird eine grobe analytische Beschreibung der Entwicklung der italienischen Systeme vorgenommen. Nachhaltige Entwicklung Lokales System Hauptkomponentenanalyse Vergleichende territoriale Analyse Dallara A. y Rizzi P. Mapa geográfico de la sostenibilidad en los sistemas locales italianos, Regional Studies . Este artículo es una aplicación cuantitativa del modelo de entorno económico-social para las provincias italianas. El modelo de entorno económico-social es una estructura que se utiliza para describir sistemas territoriales. Se basa en un esquema teórico denominado SEST (sistemas territoriales socio-económicos) que conecta los rendimientos del sistema local con la estructura socio-económica, las economías externas, las estrategias públicas/privadas y la gobernanza territorial. El modelo de entorno económico-social se centra en los tres pilares de sostenibilidad: economía, sociedad y medio ambiente. Definimos las aglomeraciones y clasificaciones que permiten hacer comparaciones con sistemas locales más homogéneos. Mediante un análisis de los componentes principales hacemos una descripción analítica del desarrollo de los sistemas italianos.
