Lost in Transition? Deindustrial Change at Sesto San Giovanni and Porto Marghera (1980-2020) 

The municipality of Sesto San Giovanni (Milan) and the district of Marghera (Venice) are two urban areas that have been strongly marked by processes of deindustrialization over the last forty years. The research project aims to compare the post-industrial transition in the two cases by collecting and organizing data on the structural change in demographic, social, economic and political composition. The research is conceived as part of the international project DEPOT (Deindustrialization and the Politics of Our Time) with support from Italian units based at the Ca’ Foscari University of Venice and the Isec Foundation of Sesto San Giovanni.
