Description :
This study examines the long-term changes (1971–2001) in the socio-economic structure of Rome, undergoing moderately polycentric development. The socio-economic disparities observed along the urban-rural gradient in 1971 decreased only moderately in 2001. Results indicate that exurban development has impacted only partly Rome's urban form which remained mainly compact and dense with persisting socio-economic gaps between urban and suburban areas. The paper discusses the partial failure of Rome's master plan to promote a really polycentric development and a new, more sustainable, urban form.
