Migratory transnational flows as analytical tool for planning in the post-metropolitan transition of Italian urban regions


The increasing of international migratory flows is one of the main socio-cultural phenomena within post-modern city. According to Soja post-metropolis is the spatial result of new socio-spatial transformations of the cities that is characterized by a high and new level of socio-economic fragmentation. In relation to these phenomena, social polarization of urban space has given way to an “unstructured” and “dispersed” social geometry. The globalization processes and the deep socioeconomic transformations, as well as the enlargement of the European Union, are at the heart of a complex system of interdependent factors that have changed the relationship between countries of origin and countries of destination of migratory flows. The aim of this paper is to explore the relationship between foreigners and Italian post-metropolitan areas, by studying phenomena of immigrants' spatial dispersion compared with the main cities, which are considered as catalysts of migratory flows.
