  • Moving Up and Down the Scale. The Food System Governance in Portland -
    • Abstract: Nunzia Borrelli, Terry Marsden
      This article is part of the debate on the governance of food systems and sets out to highlight some of the key issues in this context through the presentation of a case study. The aspects of the food governance the article focuses on concern the importance of defining a governance system that is neither national, nor urban, but that it is rather supraurban, metropolitan, regional, or even better that works on the communication between all these levels. The proposed case study concerns the city of Portland, characterized by strong communication between different levels of food system governance.

  • Varieties of Alterity: Alternative Food Networks in the UK, Italy and
    • Abstract: Leigh Martindale, Raffaele Matacena, Jonathan Beacham
      By comparing insights from three different fields sites located in the UK, Italy, and China, the authors explore how AFNs, in different ways that are context dependent, are providing a variety of alternatives to the mainstream food system. We argue that "alternatives" have both emerged and been constructed through a variety of social, political and economic responses which are dependent on the local conditions AFNs are derived from, and employing the lenses of locality, scale and food materialities, they suggest that alterity across spatial contexts points to a (hyper) generalised typology that may have interesting implications f or future research.

  • Dudley Grows and the Community Food System of Boston’s Dudley Street
    • Abstract: Monica Bernardi, Davide Diamantini
      Food has become one of the arena of new conflicts around justice and sustainability. Especially in US, race and class are influencing food policy, production, distribution and consumption. The article presents the case of the black and low-income neighborhood of Dudley Street in Boston, that is creating a community residents-driven food system respectful of its members’ race and culture.

  • If four decades seem too few
    • Abstract: Giandomenico Amendola
      The author highlights how the social and academic relevance of urban sociology has changed; after years of centrality (both scientific and not), now it must struggle to gain visibility. Starting from an excursus from the 1950s, the author individuates the topics on which the Italian sociology of territory has emerged and assumed a clear identity on the international debate. The Italian urban sociology was born and developed as a tool to provide institutions, social movements and citizens with the knowledge to face the perverse but not unpredictable effects of new modernization, but now it seems absent or ineffective.

  • The Right to the city, fifty years later: the role of urban sociology
    • Abstract: Antonietta Mazzette
      Fifty years after the publication of the first edition of Lefebvre Le droit à la ville, does it still make sense to speak of "right to the city"' Which city should we refer to nowadays' What categories of people are excluded from this right' And also, in what terms does urban sociology pose these questions' In this essay we try, at least partially, to answer these questions, starting with the main core of Lefebvre’s arguments, and then focusing on the most recent debate, by limiting it especially to some important scholars who have recently dealt with the topic, such as Don Mitchell e Peter Marcuse.

  • Forty years of the Journal, forty years of urban sociology
    • Abstract: Alfredo Mela
      The purpose of the article is to illustrate some aspects of the evolution of urban sociology in Italy, highlighting the contribution that it has been offered by the Journal Urban and Rural Sociology along the 40 years of its history. The analysis takes into consideration above all three periods: the first is the initial one, between the end of the ’70s and the ’80s, a second is between the twentieth and the twenty-first century, and the third is the current one, corresponding to the last ten years. For each phase, the dominant themes on the international and national scene are highlighted, along with the main topics of interest emerging from the articles and the monographic issues of the Journal. The article ends with some considerations regarding the spatial turn that is the growing attention to the spatial dimension of the phenomena affecting the contemporary social sciences, highlighting the new tasks that open up for urban sociology in interdisciplinary confrontation.

  • Distinctive features of urban sociology. Toward an encyclopedia of places
    • Abstract: Giampaolo Nuvolati
      The main aim of the article is to emphasize the peculiarity and importance of urban sociology, both in the more comprehensive framework of sociology and in the other so-called nonsociological disciplines dealing with spaces and territories. It also points out the paths of future development of the discipline - both as regards the themes and the methodologies - proposing, in particular, the creation of a Sociological Encyclopedia of Places as a further reflection tool for studying the relationships between environment (natural and built) and society.

  • Food Poverty and Food Assistance. The Emergency Food System in Turin
    • Abstract: Alessia Toldo
      The paper is part of the debate about food poverty, and it deals the theme through the practices. Using the conceptualization of foodscape, the paper will discuss the results of the research conducted on the emergency food system in Turin, in order to analyze the relationships between its elements (food, subjects, space and time). The analysis shows the opportunities of a new approach to the food emergency, involving the use of food and its symbolic values as a vehicle through which reconstruct socio-spatial relationships in order to get out of marginality and social exclusion.

  • Food and Deviant Behavior in Young People. The Institutional Response of
           the Sicilian Territory to the ED
    • Abstract: Deborah De Felice
      The food, the relationship with it, is the territory in which from the earliest childhood begins to build the structure of what will then be the basis of the balancing of relationships between norm, wellness dimension, and individual fulfilment, self-reliant and hetero- detection regulation. Within this scenario, the attention is on the forms and terms in which the territory, here understood as the government of the territory and limited to the Region of Sicily, responds on the institutional level through the recognition and qualification on the legal level of a declination of the Eating Disorder (ED) as a social problem - with a specific focus on younger age. The attempt is to emulate food as a symbolic territory useful in exercising control forms and subjectivity building, highlighting the size of problems that accompany both the possibilities of analysis and the planning of possible interventions.

  • Environmental sociology: a genealogical profile
    • Abstract: Luigi Pellizzoni
      Environmental sociology was born forty years ago as a result of emergent ecological concerns. After the New Ecological Paradigm and the first eco-Marxist analyses the interest prevailed in the "social construction of environmental problems". Subsequently the perspective of practices has gained salience. "New materialism" has seen the discipline active especially in regard to new mobilizations. In the meantime the framework has changed, with the rise of neoliberalism and global environmental change. A reading of Sociologia Urbana e Rurale confirms substantive interests and evolutionary lines of the discipline. Today one has to tackle the ambiguous challenge of the Anthropocene and the resurgence in new forms of old cleavages.

  • The sociology of tourism, between celebration of social belonging and
           construction of the individual identity
    • Abstract: Asterio Savelli
      The paper proposes a synthesis of the activity of the Mediterranean Association for the Sociology of Tourism, in the wider frame of Italian research and studies, and specifically in the debate promoted by the journal Sociologia Urbana e Rurale. It considers the change of motivation and behaviour in tourism, which takes place in the transition from Fordist to post Fordist society. Tourism now presents uncertain development trends, and gets over specifically consecrated areas, arranging transversal routes with respect to the metropolitan zoning of free time activities. So, the profane dimension of everyday life makes irruptions in the tourist experience and overlaps to the various individual ways of differentiation.

  • The rural landscape between the transformations of agriculture and the
           food iconic function
    • Abstract: Carlo Colloca
      The text analyzes the rural landscape as a synthesis of nature and culture, but also of historical processes of socio-territorial and economic changes. In particular, the text focuses on the relationship between agricultural modernization, rural development and social farming practices and their effects on the landscape. In the second part, it concentrates on how food is related to the landscape, influencing its representation.

  • Urban and rural sociology: which future'
    • Abstract: Giovanni Pieretti
      The author points out, not without controversy, the crisis of the Italian sociology of territory, that is less and less able to understand the elements of change in our society. He criticizes the loss of effectiveness in understanding territories and their populations, as well as the difficulty in providing useful elements to govern. However, the author also suggests a possible "way out" to this crisis. This way passes from the rediscovery of some classics such as the Chicago School, and recovering the idea of sociologists as Civil Servants. To conclude, he suggests use more frequently "legs and eyes" for territorial research, otherwise everything remains very theoretical and we are not able to contribute to "make people feel better".

  • Innovative Practices of Land Use in Sardinia: Food Production and New
    • Abstract: Daniele Pulino, Sara Spanu, Camillo Tidore
      The diversification of activities and products together with the ability to establish a new relationship with "qualified" segments of food demand represent one of the main strengths of the Sardinian agricultural sector, which only recently is emerging from a long structural and market crisis. The European policies supported Sardinia in spreading and consolidating forms of agricultural conversion over the last few decades that have opened up new prospects for rural development focused on a new relationship between agricultural production and local consumption. This article is based on a research of the changes of agriculture in Sardinia, whose aim is to investigate the ability of small farms to innovate, the working and organizational paths that involve foreigners, and the relationship with the local territorial context.

  • Social sustainability and demographic decline in rural areas. A case study
    • Abstract: Camillo Tidore, Romina Deriu
      In the last decades, depopulation becomes a central issue of the political agenda in Sardinia as well as in Europe. The essay focuses on the local knowledge of territories, where development practices and policies to counteract demographic decline are based. In this perspective the results of a recent empirical research carried out in an area of Sardinia, Meilogu, are presented. Here more than elsewhere, a substantial process of emptying the territories is taking place. On the other hand, the case study shows that in the same area under investigation several material and immaterial resources and knowledge have allowed the implementation of virtuous development paths in some centers. As a result the strategic value that has been given to local resources has promote opposite trends in terms of depopulation, if referred to adjacent areas. A central issue emerged from the research is related to the transmission of knowledge as a source of human capital, carried out through training paths that integrate into development policies.

  • Food sharing: when food policies meet sharing economy
    • Abstract: Davide Diamantini, Monica Bernardi, Nunzia Borrelli, Giulia Mura
      Within the current debate on food-related issues, special attention is drawn on food sharing initiatives: forms of sharing that rely on the use of online platforms and allow reuse of extra food, reducing wastage. The article shows the results of an exploratory survey carried out in Milan during EXPO 2015 (1,119 cases), investigating the level of awareness and integration of these practices on the daily life of citizens. Results show positive representations connected with food-sharing, but the need of stronger support for active participation.
