Abstract

The concept of territorial capital has been discussed in numerous international documents and in different disciplinary fields. The review of the literature shows a definitive recurrence of some contributions and a recent renewed interest in the theme. This happened in a context of profound change that has seen the gradual affirmation of “territorial” and “bottom-up” approaches compared to the traditional “exogenous” and “top-down” ones. From this point of view, the greater attention paid to the satisfaction of local needs also relativizes the concept of resource. The socio-cultural dimension assumes a key role as it depends on the representation of the territory and therefore the development objectives of a community. Then, the concept of territorial capital seems to provide an important contribution, especially in terms of defining the logical framework of reference. In this research, starting from the literature, the aim is to elaborate a definition of “territorial capital” which, while reflecting the elements of complexity referred to, can be applied to different contexts and allow a schematic simplification of the representation of the territorial qualities. The analysis of the factors that determine it and the choice of the variables for its representation clearly highlight the need to reflect further on the approaches for its measurement and on the modalities of its use in support of development policies.
