M. Loda, Social morphology, patterns of consumption and the pull of the city in the San Lorenzo neighborhood of Florence (Morfologia sociale, comportamenti di consumo e domanda di città nel quartiere S. Lorenzo a Firenze) After noting that urban phenomena in historic centers are more dynamic than the brick and stone that houses them, the introduction draws attention to the need for a direct survey in achieving a better understanding of demographic structure, social morphology and patterns of consumption: the homely attractions of the neighborhood and the pull of the city. The analysis thus starts from demographic structure, which is compared where possible with the picture given us by the official data, turning then to social morphology, examined in terms of occupation and residence, and to patterns of consumption as reflected by buyers’ preferences for various types of retail outlet. In conclusion, the article scrutinizes the competing attractions of city life and neighborhood roots.
