The transition from core city of Italy’s manufacturing north to a service-based metropolis has been particularly fraught for Milan. Here Francesca Cognetti and Paolo Cottino sketch the weakened planning and government of the city, which prioritize fragmented corporate initiatives while leaving many social needs unmet. They document some of the myriad spontaneous initiatives which are emerging to challenge the regime and to fill some of the vacuum for services and solidarity among citizens.

Abstract

The transition from core city of Italy’s manufacturing north to a service-based metropolis has been particularly fraught for Milan. Here Francesca Cognetti and Paolo Cottino sketch the weakened planning and government of the city, which prioritize fragmented corporate initiatives while leaving many social needs unmet. They document some of the myriad spontaneous initiatives which are emerging to challenge the regime and to fill some of the vacuum for services and solidarity among citizens.
