Synaptic spaces within european rescaling processes

  • Abstract

Informations and abstract

Keywords:

On the background of contemporary rescaling process and of the current broad rethinking of some relevant concepts, such as "region", "territory", "locality", "space", the case of the Baltic Sea Macro-Region (and of the related place-based EU successful "experimentalist" strategy) highlights the emerging of "soft spaces" as new forms of territorial organizations. By using a biological metaphor these soft spaces may be intended as "synaptic spaces" clearly claiming for a radical shift in planning approaches, whose features are explored by highlighting the role both of images/ imaginaries and historical/geographical/cultural roots, to be used (re-interpreted) in the de-construction/reconstruction of the contemporary European spatiality.
