Median Italy: Territorial Diversity as the Cornerstone of Regional Development
This text describes the results of a research conducted as part of the Junction territories Project 2 Abruzzo by the Ministry for Infrastructure and Transport and the Abruzzo Region, which interprets the regional space of the Central Italy as Median Macro-region, implemented through the Territory projects. The identification of Territorial Settlement Systems, of Tourist Systems, Territorial Frameworks, Network Cities (in relational terms) is used to overcome the dualism that has always characterized the development of central Italy, its polycentrism and the imbalance of policies in favor of Metropolitan cities.
