It is a shared view that development of local communities is also based on the ability to re-cognize the special features and to find its own specificity. More and more local experiences aim to the (re)construction of an identity by means of the recovery of its own culture and the enhancement of territory. In this scenario, the slow city has established itself as one of the most representative models capable of expressing virtuous practices based on the centrality of the territory and the peculiarities of places. The paper examines two experiences of slow cities and it underlines how, in these cases, development has been based on the recovery of the history and the values of tradition, as well as on the protection and enhancement of the resources and local specialities.
Keywords: Enhancement of territory, slow city, identity, development, tradition, local specialities.
