  The Politics of Urban Space: Modes of Place-making by Italians in Toronto's Neighbourhoods
 
 
Titel: The Politics of Urban Space: Modes of Place-making by Italians in Toronto's Neighbourhoods
Auteur: Harney, Nicholas DeMaria
Verschenen in: Modern Italy
Paginering: Jaargang 11 (2006) nr. 1 pagina's 25-42
Jaar: 2006-02-01
Inhoud: This paper examines the politics of urban space through a consideration of three ways Italians in Toronto, Canada, create, make claims to and express their belonging in particular neighbourhoods in the city. The article considers forms of claiming and colonizing space that are not overtly violent or confrontational with respect to other groups living within the plural city but, in effect, are assertions of power over particular places with which others must contend. The three forms encompass a range of scales, temporal duration and purposeful collective expression by Italians in Toronto, and they include the quotidian shaping of neighbourhoods, the calendrical colonizing of public spaces during religious and secular celebrations and the monument building that attests to the permanence of Italians in the city. Ultimately, these forms of place-making must contend with the larger forces of commodification and popular imagery that influence the spatial representations of Italians in Toronto.
