Tra tipi e forme. Perché la sociologia urbana deve lavorare sulle dinamiche

Abstract : This essay is based on revision and expansion of Weberian analysis of types of city in the era of world urbanization. The idea which the essay makes explicit is that planetary urbanization makes the different types of city closer, instead of doing these types unrelated. This takes place in distinct evolutionary paths. The essay has then elaborated on the connection between distinct spatial-territorial forms, a term which includes economy and society in their variable matching. The idea of assemblage is let aside, although relevant in recent urban theory. The Weberian category of urban political economy is then proposed, based on comparison of different types of city and the range of actors and economic-territorial systems taken into account.
