Abstract
The work aims to understand diversification processes in Italian inner areas through a super-diversity lens, by testing the enforceability of this approach outside the traditional context of global cities. The main research questions concern if rural and peripheral localities in Italy are experiencing diversification processes to the point that it can be possible to apply super-diversity framework and which are peculiar or common patterns of these processes compared to other types of localities. The first part focuses on the development of a comprehensive theoretical approach to super-diversity through the integration of other theoretical frameworks, that can allow to overcome some limitations of the concept, especially those related to the understanding of inequalities. Moreover, academic literatures on urban scale and New Immigration Destinations are also used to further reframe super-diversity outside urban environments. The second part deals with the Italian context, by using quantitative and comparative methods to understand diversification patterns in rural and peripheral areas, their peculiarities compared to urban centres and the possible consequences.
