Though the very origins of the historic center and the efforts to safeguard its architectural heritage, combined with the feeble guidance provided by urban planning, economic and social policies, have resulted in glaring contrasts on the regional level, it must be recognized that geographers have devoted little attention to detailed investigations of individual urban situations, and even less to investigations at the intraurban scale. This is an area where the Laboratory for Socio-Territorial Analysis and Documentation has been concentrating its efforts in a series of studies whose findings are presented in this issue: Loda and Mancini-Burzio on Florence; Amato and D’Alessandro on Naples; Faravelli on Milan; Guarrasi on Palermo; Zanetto on cities and their historic centers; and, in conclusion, Biagi on the political and administrative repercussions of the historic center’s problems.
