Abstract

The resilient character of marginal territories, at national level, is being investigated by the Territorial Cohesion Agency which, in 2014, elaborated the National Strategy for Internal Areas (NSIA). Our case study concerns the Inner Area of Calatino, which was identified by the NSIA, and we describe its essential characteristics and territorial qualities. By means of the Geographic Information System, we have created cartography functional to the identification of the area, and for the description of some of its main characteristics. In order to evaluate some resilient characteristics, the actors and networks that have a role in the implementation of resilient strategies have been identified, while analysis was carried out through the affiliation network of Social Network Analysis. On the one hand, this analysis highlighted some problems and, on the other hand, potentialities that can both be sought in the weakness of the relationships that the municipalities seem to maintain among themselves, as well as in a certain degree of cultural ferment.
