Urban Regionalisation Processes in Sicily: From the Theoretical Framework to the Local Dynamics


This introductory chapter proposes a mainly theoretical reflection on the category of the urban, both as a spatial and social product and as an economic and political one, in territories marked by settlement transformation phenomena. In tracking this evolutionary path, this chapter addresses the huge thematic bibliog- raphy on the phenomena of urban regionalisation without any demand for systematic approach but pursuing the aim of tracing the geography of this on-going transition in Sicily.
