Piero Bassetti and the glocal city, between flows and places - The processes that characterise contemporary cities and regions can no longer be captured with the classifications of modernity. The glocal approach advanced by Piero Bassetti responds to the practical need to measure up to a reality of phenomena which appear ‘ontologically new’ and which combine the dimensions of the loci and that of flows in forms that are often completely new. However, the flows spoken of do not by any means represent an abstract or metaphorical dimension. They are materially configured in our environment and how we observe them poses fundamental questions about the world today. The conversation with Piero Bassetti starts from this consideration and ranges from issues of governance or rather governance of relations between geographical areas and functions to those inherent in going beyond the classic conception of democracy and jurisdictions. It considers the problems of the various forms of depicting geographical areas that are useful for the importance of a type of planning that is able to involve the protagonists in its implementation and he goes on contemplate the frontiers of a Europeanism that is open to the world and centred on a regional and functional dimension. In a contemporary world of uncertainties and ambiguities, the glocalist thoughts of Piero Bassetti possess the merit of generating new horizons of meaning and new scenarios for action.
