The cohabitation among different "social worlds" is increasingly a characteristic of urban spaces. This is mainly due to migrant flows that generated new processes of territorialization of difference. The dominant literature and rhetoric too often started from an assumed representation of difference in urban spaces "always" as something to assimilate, to deconstruct or to defend. Starting from the dissatisfaction towards these dominant representations, the article aims to examine the concept of "spatial justice", largely unexplored in the Italian context, as a possible lens to analyze the processes of territorialization of difference. Using this situated and processual perspective of justice, the attention is focused on the spatialities that are constantly produced and reproduced and on the territorial resources and bonds that could be mobilized or inhibited.
