Scienze del Territorio

La Società dei Territorialisti/e ONLUS (Associazione scientifica multidisciplinare formata da studiosi di diversi Atenei italiani e europei) promuove il suo V CONGRESSO NAZIONALE 

Scienze del Territorio is the online journal of the Territorialist Society. The journal hosts pioneering studies pointed at enhancing territorial heritage, bringing back together the diverse meanings of places, frequently divided by confined institutional sciences and practices, and proposing transformation projects based on these guidelines.
As an identity code of its scientific method and action, the journal promotes forms of meeting and mediation among theoretical thought, technical and local knowledge. It hosts scientific articles as well as contributions from local communities and institutional actors who share this approach and experiment innovation projects and practices.
The journal is intended as an observatory on innovation practices and a place of theoretical reflection on them, providing infor-mation, conceptual and practical tools for active citizenship and institutions engaged in various forms of attention to care and government of territories as common goods. The aim is to foster experience exchange and knowledge dissemination and, in a wider perspective, to trigger continuing education and empowerment, by encouraging and strengthening ways of learning and self-learning which can be catalysed by readings.

OPEN CONTINUOUS CALL FOR PAPERS: "Reflection and practices on the territorialist project"


The section of the journal Territorial Sciences called Reflection and practices on the territorialist project contains papers providing reflections on the state of the art and the multi‐ and trans‐disciplinary advancement of the territorialist project culture, moving from individual disciplines or ‘clusters’ of them. Such papers are therefore intended as totally independent of the topic dealt with in each monographic issue, and may be sent to the editorial staff at any time regardless of the deadlines connected to each thematic call for papers. They can either be of a general theoretical nature – providing hints aimed at orienting the reflection on territorial sciences – or describe methodo‐ logical, operational or substantial advances contained in specific research or applica‐ tion experiences. Papers should be maximum 30,000 characters (including spaces, about 4,300 words) in length, and must strictly comply with the journal’s editorial standards, downloadable at They will undergo the usual peer re‐view process in double blind and, in case of acceptance, will be immediately published (‘online first’) in a dedicated section of the journal's website (, then inserted in the appropriate section of the first available issue due out after acceptance. The papers – complete in each part – must be sent via e‐mail only to the following address: For any further information, please e‐mail us at:

Call for Papers: the new call for the 6th issue of Scienze del Territorio is out now!



Number VI, 2018

 [deadline: JUNE 30th, 2017]

"Local economies of the territory as the commons"

The dramatic imbalances and inequalities generated by globalised economy call for a reflection on how to build an alternative to this economic model, destroying territories as it centralises resources and power in a few hands. In order to define a plausible alternative, it is useful to focus on territories and the essential needs of people; it is therefore necessary to rethink development in economic but also social, environmental, cultural terms, relying on the experiences and practices of everyday life, on a widespread access to common goods and on a local territorial dimension.
