The cityscape of Naples is a kaleidoscope in continuous transformation. Assuming that the presence of migrant traders - shopkeepers and street vendors - is a privileged point of observation, we carried out an inquiry on 6500 citizens with migration background, through a gis also. The source of the data that we collected and processed come from the archives of the Chamber of Commerce of Naples. The reference period of the data is from January 1900 to December 2020. The study on nationality of the business owners, locations and enrolment period of the activities reveals something about how migrants play a role within the social division of space connected. To this end, we looked at the main concentrations at different scales: from the municipal scale, passing through the district, to the street level.
