Abstract

[ITALIANO] - Utilizzando come punto di partenza la "teoria dei sistemi (progressivi)" - e assegnando alla relazione causale struttura-prestazioni un ruolo centrale - questo lavoro delinea una prospettiva metodologica per lo studio dello sviluppo economico delle citta'. La prospettiva proposta conduce a spostare il focus scientifico dell'economia urbana sull'identificazione della "struttura" e sull'analisi della "evoluzione strutturale" delle citta'. Inoltre, trattandosi di sistemi aperti, l'evoluzione strutturale viene valutata rispetto ai cambiamenti del contesto relazionale ("ambiente") delle citta'. Studiare le determinanti della traiettoria di sviluppo economico di una citta' significa, quindi, studiare l'evoluzione della sua struttura, riconducendola all'interagire di un insieme di meccanismi evolutivi, ciascuno con la sua logica, i quali devono essere esaminati in modo concreto piuttosto che astratto. [ENGLISH] - By moving from the theory of "progressive systems" - and assigning to the causal relationship "structure-performances" a key role - this paper outlines a methodological perspective to study the economic development of cities. The proposed perspective leads to shift the scientific focus of urban economics to the identification of the "structure" and the analysis of the "structural evolution" of cities. Moreover, being cities - as any other complex system - an "open system", its structural evolution has to be evaluated with regard to its changing "environment". To study the development trajectory of city means, therefore, to study the evolution of its structure, which is the emerging outcome of the interplay of a constellation of adjustment mechanisms, each with its own rationale, which have to be examined with a substantive rather than a formal approach.
