Twenty years since The Mediterranean city in transition by Lila Leontidou, the present study formulates an interpretative framework of recent urbanization processes in the "Mediterranean cities", with a special focus on southern Europe. An interpretation of Mediterranean urbanities is proposed according to local governance and (changing) socioeconomic structures. The interpretation is based on the characteristics of the socio-demographic and production local context in view of the persistent crisis affecting economic systems, institutions and the society. In this way an unifying approach to the development of different forms of Mediterranean cities is illustrated.
