THE TERRITORIAL FOUNDATION OF POWER AND GLOBAL SPATIAL TRANSFORMATIONS

  • Michela Michetti Teramo University

Abstract

The A. analyzes the relationship between territory and power through a theoretical perspective, retracing the most significant theories elaborated between the nineteenth and twentieth century by Italian and foreign doctrines. The investigation, therefore, aims at verifying how much power structures and, in particular, state power find their foundation in a primordial telluric link, which today seems to be called into question by the pervasive pace of a spatial revolution brought about by globalization. And if, on one hand, global power has eroded the consistency of statehood, sovereignty and territory; on the other hand, it has initiated a process of reconformation of traditional state components including, undoubtedly, the territorial element.
