Abstract

the research aims to investigate the polycentric structure of Genoa with respect to the current situation. The main question is about its identity, tryinfg to understand whether, in the light of current transformations, it is more appropriate to define Genoa as a polycentric city or, rather, a city with many centers. To this end, the research will also try to critically reconsider the most widespread and shared model of urban polycentrism, based on specific characteristics and linked to the creation of new centralities able of attract new inhabitants of the creative upper class, proposing instead an alternative reading to the current dominant, based on the idea that the concept of polycentrism does not represent a univocal formula, applicable and desirable in the same way everywhere, assuming, rather, different conformations and multiple meanings, in relation to the different contextual realities in which it could take shape.
