Dai Sistemi Locali del Lavoro alle Citta': verso un nuovo algoritmo di regionalizzazione

Listed author(s):


[ITALIANO] Lo scopo di questo lavoro Š di riaprire il dibattito sulle modalita' di regionalizzazione funzionale con la proposta di una procedura analitica di identificazione dei sistemi locali. Come Š noto, l'esito della regionalizzazione funzionale in Italia si sostanzia nei Sistemi (o Mercati) Locali del Lavoro (SLL), categoria interpretativa il cui utilizzo ha sollevato innumerevoli dubbi, tanto dal punto di vista teorico che da quello operativo. Nell'articolo si cerchera' di argomentare come la citta', nel senso di un insieme di comuni funzionalmente interrelati, possa assurgere al ruolo di costrutto teorico su cui fondare un algoritmo alternativo di regionalizzazione. L'utilizzo della citta' come metrica di analisi del livello locale, infatti, consente di arricchire ed articolare la procedura utilizzata per identificare i SLL, permettendo di cogliere i fenomeni di organizzazione territoriale emergenti, basati su modelli urbani. [ENGLISH] The aim of this paper is to resume the debate on functional regionalization by proposing a new analytical procedure to identify local systems. As is well known, Local Labour Systems (LLS) are the outcome of functional regionalization in Italy. Their use has raised manifold questions, both from the theoretical point of view and from standard operating. We will try to show how the city, in the sense of a cluster of municipalities which work in an interrelated way, could be the theoretical construct to serve as the basis for an alternative algorithm of regionalization. Using the city to analyse the local level, let us to enrich and articulate the process of identification of local systems Indeed, it seems to be able to interpret the new territorial organisation which is based on urban models.
