Cultural policies for capital cities
Reflections on the relationship between cultural policies and urban development have been at the core of important academic discussions and government actions in the last years. The question of the role of central and peripheral cultural policies in urban regeneration and economic development processes was first introduced in the early ‘90s thanks to the confluence of the research of geographers, sociologists, development economists and researchers in the field of cultural districts. Building upon these reflections, the theme is deepened with specific reference to the cases of Mantua (the 2016 Italian Capital of Culture) and the experience of the Italian Capital of Culture commission for 2018 and 2020.
