The Settling dynamics of immigrant populations differ according to their own perception of the very periurban areas there are moving into. Such areas have developed specific characters and processes of attracting and including the new-coming groups of migrants. The hypothesis we are putting forward is that the groups of migrants can credit a periurban area with a sense of home, and can recreate solidarity bonds within the periurban area they settle down into, according to which opportunities the area itself provides them with. Settling dynamics are aimed at both defensive goals (e.g. one’s identity and peculiarity) as well as active and expansive goals, such as the utilitarian fruition of available resources, which change the periurban structure.
