Strategies for Improving Performance
Edited by Peter Karl Kresl and Daniele Ietri
Chapter 11: On the possible government of the city
In this chapter I will explore the many dilemmas of contemporary urban governance. The reference is to Italy, but many of the statements apply as well to the majority of urban contexts, first of all in Europe. In the chapter I will examine, first, the limits of the possible political government, considering the diversification between factual processes and policy processes, and the progressive shift of today’s urban systems from the old and normative city model. Second, some avenues of innovation are explored, given the centrality of the good governance of urban systems for the prosperity and sustainable development of the entire country. Finally, some suggestions as to the possible enhancement of urban culture are also offered.
