Book Description
When first published in Italy, this book sold out in months. It stirred much media interest and was widely welcomed across the political spectrum and in scholarly circles. Now available in English in an updated version, The Urban Village introduces the concept of self-sustainable local development, based on each locality’s territorial specificities and traditions. After exploring the significance of local development in all its political, social and technical dimensions, Professor Magnaghi sets out a concrete vision for a new urban regional ‘utopia’. He proposes, in addition to conventional indices of wealth and income, other criteria of social progress – including quality of life, social solidarity, and the development of non-commercial caring relations.
