The physical morphology of the periurban belt consists of a series of conglomerations, airports, shopping centers, residential zones, infrastructures for leisure activities, multiscreen cinemas, as well as simple concentrations of different types of buildings alongside streets, motorways, stations and other services. The periurban belt appears as a non-place characterized by a lack of any symbolic, relational and historic identity values typical of "historical places", while at the same time being a producer of a "new place" in the metropolitan system offering new forms of identity, relations and history. Could all this lead to situations of social vulnerability?
