Presentazione del volume

One of the most interesting and hot topics in the contemporary era of globalization surely involves the geopolitical role played by new powers in the international sphere. The first of these is China, which is receiving ever increasing attention among scholars of various branches of knowledge. Geographers are involved in this debate and contribute to understand and highlight themes of particular significance. This volume gathers the proceedings of the Study Day "Italy and China: An Evolving Geographical Perspective", held on November 2013 at the University of Milan.
A series of issues relating to different geographical branches are herein examined: Historical Geography, Political Geography, Cultural Geography, Geography of Population, Geography of tourism, Urban Geography, Regional Geography. Furthermore, in some cases, relations between China and Italy are considered, for the purpose of outlining a framework that will be examined from different perspectives and in different scales.
The essays included in this book examine qualitative and quantitative issues using scientifically rigorous methodologies to tackle an extremely heterogeneous reality, which is rooted in cultural and religious values of the past, and in which global phenomena are woven together, imprinting the future of our Planet.
