The article examines how, and to what extent, the process of Europeanization has affected the reshaping of territorial representation in Italy. Focus is on the European Cohesion Policy and the Structural Funds, which exercise a potential influence over the key dimensions of representation by providing regions with the opportunity to strengthen their roles as both “actors” and “arenas” of representation. Empirical research conducted through interviews and the analysis of documents in all twenty Italian regions reveals how each region has reacted to structural funds in a distinctive way due to different internal factors, such as the legacy of pre-existing policy styles and political structures, and the attitudes of the political/administrative élite.

Abstract

The article examines how, and to what extent, the process of Europeanization has affected the reshaping of territorial representation in Italy. Focus is on the European Cohesion Policy and the Structural Funds, which exercise a potential influence over the key dimensions of representation by providing regions with the opportunity to strengthen their roles as both “actors” and “arenas” of representation. Empirical research conducted through interviews and the analysis of documents in all twenty Italian regions reveals how each region has reacted to structural funds in a distinctive way due to different internal factors, such as the legacy of pre-existing policy styles and political structures, and the attitudes of the political/administrative élite.
