Abstract

Infrastructures generate intrinsic transformations of the territory. If on one hand they improve the accessibility generating processes of economical growth and spatial expansion, on the other, they represent barrier to material, perceptional and social continuity. Looking at the city at metropolitan scale infrastructures are terminal nodes of global trajectories, as well as, sometimes constrains to local communities development. Infrastructures, allowing the coexistence of different populations, are also both a lens to read rising conflicts between different powers and populations as well as a tool to redesign shared spaces. East Naples, for its characteristics, represents an interesting case study to understand these dynamics: a former industrial area, partially dismissed, now interested by traditional projects of renovation and, at the same time, spontaneous forces of change. Nevertheless the presence of the infrastructures still influences the process of redefining common spaces.
