“Intercity”: esempi di trasformazione degli spazi in un quartiere del centro storico di Palermo

Abstract: “Intercity”: Examples of Spaces’s Transformation in a Suburb of the Historical Centre of Palermo

The presence and the integration of migrants in the cities, leads to the articulation of new forms of urban life. By an empirical research conducted in 2007 in a suburb of the historical centre of Palermo, Palazzo Reale, the cognitive question that we posed to ourselves, was to observe whether the presence of migrants in an urban area traditionally “marginal” has triggered off a transformation in its structure and in the structure of the relationship between these spaces.

Keywords: Migrants, Re-Functionalization, Re-Symbolization, City.
